### Number Rumbler: the family maths game!

#### What is Number Rumbler?

Number Rumbler is a family card game which uses numbers to help you with your times tables whilst having fun at the same time!

#### Why is it useful?

When you play our numbers card game you’ll be having fun, practising your times tables, and developing number sense.

Number sense is what it sounds like: a sense for numbers. Learning multiplication tables is all about number facts: 2 x 5 is 10, for example. Number sense is more fun and more valuable. It’s about understanding how numbers relate to each other more broadly.
By playing with the cards, you’ll get a better sense of how the numbers relate to one another – and because of that understanding, you’ll be more flexible with numbers and more fluent when you’re calculating and estimating.

Number Rumbler was also a finalist in the 2016 Science Toy Award!

#### How to Play

Get comfy with your friends and family and settle in for some mathematical numbers fun!
You can play noisy or quiet games with Number Rumbler – it’s up to you. A great way to start is simply to sort the cards into families – all the 12s, all the 10s, and so on. You might also want to take out some of the cards if you’re playing with younger children – the blue division cards, and the green cards with words on.

You can play a quiet game of pairs (memory game) or a get a bit louder with snap, or even make up your own fun numbers game with the cards.

“I enjoyed it” – child’s comment

“Where can I buy this maths game?” – parent’s comment

“This is a fun maths game for all the family which can be used in a number of different ways … The cards show quantities as calculations as well as dot arrays and this helps children to see relationships between the different representations and thus improve their number sense. A very simple but effective idea!” Margaret Haseler, Primary Lead Consultant, National Numeracy

“At last a maths number game for children to play with friends and family that really supports them to develop their number sense – and practice some important number facts along the way.. There’s no better way to learn and practice those times tables!” Dr Alison Clark-Wilson, Research Fellow, UCL Institute of Education, and Trustee, Maths on Toast
