Make Your Own Math & Logic Games

Did you know there’s a branch of mathematics called game theory? Game theorists study patterns of logical decision-making.

Mathematicians began by studying the pattern of wins and losses in 2-player strategy games like Nim. Now the science has grown into a study of much larger and more complex “games” like politics and economics.

Encourage your children to enter the fascinating world of game theory by creating their own Nim-style math and logic games.

Creative Nim includes instructions and teaching tips, several sample games, and make-your-own-game worksheets in full color and ink-saving black-and-white.

For ages 8 and up.

FAQ: HOW IS AN EBOOK DIFFERENT FROM A PRINTABLE ACTIVITY GUIDE?

The ebooks are written to be read. They include more inspiration, background information, and teaching tips, but do NOT include printable student pages.

You can think of the ebooks as a "teacher's manual" for their related printable activities.

The printable activity guides include brief teacher instructions, but the focus is on the student handout pages, making the activities easy to use in a classroom or homeschool. Many of the printable guides also include math journaling prompts and decorated pages for student writing.

Ebooks come in two formats: DRM-free EPUB file (for reading on your phone or ebook reader) and a PDF (for reading on a tablet). The activity guides come in printable PDF format only.

Either type can stand alone, though we believe they work better together. If you're on a tight budget, the ebook is often the better deal.

FAQ: HOW DO I GET MY PRINTABLE ACTIVITY GUIDE?

Printable files are delivered instantly on your order status page. As a backup, you'll also receive an email with your download links.

FAQ: HOW CAN I USE MY PRINTABLES?

You can read your printable activity guide in any browser or PDF app. Print as many copies as you need for use in your own classroom, homeschool, or local co-op class.

FAQ: CAN I RETURN IT FOR A REFUND?

Ebooks and printable activities are delivered immediately by electronic file download. They cannot be returned.

The only exception is for duplicate orders. If you accidentally purchase the same item twice, contact us immediately to get the second order refunded.
