NEW! Hang On! I'm thinking...
The mathematical version of the beloved Hangman game, with one brilliant and long overdue improvement on the traditional Hangman...
It's fail-proof learning at its best because...
The man CANNOT be hanged, as there are MORE THAN 26 PARTS to him, providing the guesser ample opportunity to make his way through the entire alphabet while learning critical mathematical vocabulary!
Studies show that students' lack of the appropriate level mathematical vocabulary, from first grade through high school, accounts for up to one third of incorrect responses and overall confusion – even for the most mathematically capable. And no wonder: by the time a student completes sixth grade, the number of mathematical vocabulary terms he or she is expected to know approaches five hundred!
And by the middle of twelfth grade, the number of terms tops nine hundred!
Now, finally, here, in one simple game, is the comprehensive collection listed in alphabetical order by grade level.
The man, who will never be hanged, has more than twenty-six parts, each magnetic and laminated in a deluxe plastic coating for many years' use. Also included are two different colored sets of letters, each containing multiples of all letters, and in proportionately increased numbers to reflect their higher use. EVERY mathematical term can be spelled with these plastic coated letters. Also included is one dry-erase board for the drawing of the blanks and game play, and a score board.
NO HANGINGS. JUST LEARNING FUN. BUT A SCORE CAN STILL BE TALLIED DEPENDING UPON HOW CLOSE TO FULLY DRESSED THE LAMINATED SCHOOLBOY IS.
And, unfortunately for the player who lets the schoolboy get fully dressed with briefcase, eyeglasses and hat, the laminated child will be sent off to school! Guess the mathematical vocabulary word before the boy is fully adorned in his magnetic outfit, and he is off to the beach! (Or wherever the winner's heart desires...)
