This web page describes several games and puzzles that build number sense, fact and computational fluency, flexibility, and reasoning. Each activity uses an ordinary set of double-6 dominoes. After describing dominoes generally, the page provides rules for the basic domino game and a variation, and proposes several other challenges involving addition, multiplication and prime numbers. The page includes a link to an interactive Dominoes Environment (cataloged separately).

      good puzzling

    • Nice activities. Try Windows, Multiplications and Prime Squares. Plenty of mental math practice, but to succeed you'll use much logic and strategy.
