Number Rumbler

Number Rumbler is a new card game to help develop number sense and maths fluency. It consists of a pack of 50 cards with numbers written – and drawn – in different ways. For example, 12 could be 4 4 4 or 3×4 or drawn out as twelve dots. By playing with the cards, your pupils get a better sense of how the numbers relate to one another and become more fluent when they are calculating and estimating.

How to Play

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. Then you can get on to more advanced Number Rumbler games – you could use the cards to play Snap, or Pairs, or (many children’s preferred option!) make up your own game.

Finalist in the Science Toy Awards 2016.

“This is a fun 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

Andrew Jeffrey’s Resource of the Month, July 2016: “It really is great for developing fluency AND reasoning… Effectively it is SNAP but with ‘is equivalent’ rather than ‘is identical’ as the important criterion.”

“At last a 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
