Whether we admit it or not, math is something we do on a daily basis. We use it to describe people and things (height, weight, age), calculate costs, tell time, to obey speed limits, etc. We need math and we use it continuously, yet it is often considered one of the most difficult and boring subjects to learn.   

The Math Zone designed by Bonnie Terry, M.Ed. is a math card game that teaches basic math skills in a unique and fun way. Bonnie Terry is an educator with over 30 years’ experience teaching regular education and special education students. She has a degree in Elementary Education and Special Education and a M.Ed. degree in Special Education.  She is both a teacher and a developer of educational games and books that are used worldwide.

The Wonder Number Learning system was created by Melbourne T. Brown in the early 1970’s. Mr. Brown was a schoolteacher who, despite his many efforts, was unable to find a suitable teaching method that assisted struggling students in their pursuit for an understanding of basic math concepts. Finally, he decided to create a method of his very own, and developed the ingenious Wonder Number Learning System – which is actually a series of board games complete with spinner, playing chips and an instructional DVD containing complete video lessons, so the homeschooling family can combine “play” with “study”!

Wonder Number consists of a brightly-colored game board, divided into numbered squares from 1 to 100. An array of math concepts is identified symbolically on the board. For instance, each prime number has a circle around it; even numbers are identified with a small blue “2” and odd numbers are those lacking the blue 2. Square numbers are enclosed in a square and are the same color as the square root, with all factors for a number being displayed in pairs and possessing a specific color. Therefore, just by looking carefully at the playing board, the math student can learn a number of basic concepts! Since every number on the board has all of its factors listed in its square block and the placement is repetitive throughout the board, it is extremely easy for even the youngest children to find and identify the numbers and become familiar with their traits.
