# Welcome to Math4U Games and Activities Section

Communicating Mathematical knowledge is the base of all activities and games available on this page.
In this section we are looking for three main types of mathematical communications:

• Recognizing, understanding and using the correct mathematical notation

• Creating, reading and using graphs, sketches, tables, diagrams etc. to give correct representation of the mathematical concept involved in the activity

• Recognizing and using the correct mathematical terminology when describing or explaining a practical situation

All activities are related to topics presented in the Tutorial section and linked to skills practiced through out the Worksheets and Practice Paper sections.

In this section, you'll enjoy challenging brain storming questions and puzzles meant to reinforce thinking, organization and presentation skills.  All of the solutions have to be presented visually with a special attention given to the appropriate work flow. Natural progression of various practical situations will guide you through an interesting and enjoyable journey in the world of Mathematics.
If you are using the activities at home, prepare for hours of challenge and fun.
If you prefer to take some of them to the classroom remember that the most important part for the students in here is to work independently. Each part of an activity or game is selected to match different needs and level of knowledge. Printing and posting in the class some of the activities will help you create a supportive teaching and learning environment and will quickly raise the class participation and interest towards the subject.
