Top Trumps: (FAPS) Factors-Addends-Products-Sum

This fun game uses ‘Top Trumps’ style cards to enable children to practice addition and multiplication strategies while reinforcing correct mathematical vocabulary.

There are 36 cards; each featuring an image of a mathsticks figure and two mathematical statements.

The first statement on each card is an addition and the other a multiplication.

While playing a Top Trumps type game, the children challenge each other as to whose card displays the higher value – product or sum!

However, the educational value doesn’t end there…

The statements offer four different mathematical elements (or categories):

  • product
  • sum
  • factors
  • addends

This game is ideal for Key Stage 2 children who have a reasonable understanding of multiplication facts and addition strategies.

The download features extensive teacher notes and a set of 36 printable cards.
