Are you looking for an engaging way to build your students’ understanding of arithmetic and a fun way of building the profile and love of math(s) in your school? Number Hive was designed by a math(s) teacher to do just that. He used it over the years to help his students develop their mathematical fluency and deepen their understanding of numbers. The results were huge.
As the use of Number Hive grows across the world, so too are Number Hive class and school tournaments.
You too can recreate that same fun and compelling approach. We’ve made it easy with a downloadable tournament poster and these simple instructions.
And the best part? It’s so much fun that your students won’t even notice that they’re learning!
Here’s how you can use Number Hive to create a tournament in your classroom:
Amplify the fun
Make each game exciting for the whole class by running the tournament on the big screen. You can have regular games live on the screen, or just the finals.
Involve the whole school
Encourage the champions from each class to play against each other to find the grand champion.
Number Hive is a great way to engage your students in learning and help them develop a deep understanding of arithmetic. By playing this game, students will learn important skills such as reasoning, strategic thinking, and problem-solving. Plus, it’s a fun and exciting way to learn, which means that your students will be motivated and engaged throughout the entire tournament. Encourage students to play the app in their own time in order to improve for next time. It’s free, there’s no ads and no in-app communication.
You can access the Number Hive App for any device, or a link to play online below:
And if you take any photos of the tournament and have appropriate permission (or blur faces), we’d love to see them! You can share them on social media or even send them to us. We’d also appreciate your feedback on what worked (or didn’t work) in your tournament.
So what are you waiting for?
Give Number Hive a try and watch your students’ mathematical skills soar!
