When you play Number Rumbler, you’ll be having fun, practising your times tables, and developing number sense. Number Rumbler was developed with, by and for families – anyone from age 6 to adult can join in.

Number Rumbler consists of a pack of 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. Number Rumbler gives a better sense of how numbers relate to one another – and because of that understanding, you’ll be more flexible with numbers and more fluent when you’re calculating and estimating.

How to Play

You can play noisy or quiet games with Number Rumbler – it’s up to you. 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.

“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
