I think I should try this with my college kids. Give me a couple weeks, and I'll come up with a thematic connection to ethics.

Seriously, it's a great idea. Wish I'd heard of it back in my homeschooling days!

What a fun idea!!! I do love black jack as well, but loathe math...does that mean I just like to gamble?
Have a great day!


Great idea! I'm going to introduce my kids to that game.


Such a great idea!

Fun! I'd play!

Brilliant! LOVE it!


Oh how I wish you were around for my stepson's education; his Gate/Seminar teachers seemed to just give him more of the same 'advanced' work, which is exactly what he didn't need! Bravo!


I just taught my 8 yr old Cribbage. Integer 25 is next.


I despise worksheets. I LOVE this kind of stuff. What a fantastic, fun, creative way to teach a (let's face it) dull subject.


My friend did this with his girls, too. Great idea.


I learned to play 21, 31 and a variety of other games with my grandma when I was really young....math? no problem for me. will introduce this one to the games my boys and I play....card games. what a great way to learn math.

Great idea! We also play the card game "war". Both players throw down a pair of cards and add them together. The player with the higher sum takes all four cards. It's also great for multiplication practice.


Casinos as magnet schools - brilliant!


This sounds like fun - thanks for the idea.
