The Card Game That Rekindled My Love For Mathematics
I must confess I really found it difficult passing Mathematics in High school, it was my worse subject ever; this even made me have a little bit of hate for any teachers that taught the subject. I remember one time in Uni I had to walk out an exam hall because I was super clueless on what to even write, and yes just as you thought I had to rewrite that paper. As it dawned on me that without this I might never graduate that’s when I had to force myself to learn it and here we are, a graduate in Finance and Accounting (winks). Last week I discovered a card game I can finally enjoy; by Daffodils Game and Publishing Limited (Daffodils GP), which is wholly Ghanaian owned game development and publishing company that aims at promoting intelligent fun using game products for all age groups.
I with some other bloggers were introduced to one of their games, the Bonanza Card Game which is a mental math game that involves applying knowledge of basic arithmetic operations to solve for whole numbers. Honestly, it’s fun, exciting and makes you think faster.
As someone who never liked maths as a kid, I wish I was introduced to this earlier in my life because it serves as a good mental workout for everyone especially kids due to its time limitation.
It was introduced to schools in Ghana through the Bonanza School Outreach Initiative, which was pioneered by Daffodils GP to create a phobia-free environment for students in Mathematics and interestingly over 30 schools in Accra and Tema Metro have participated in the Bonanza School Challenge which was first piloted with help from Vivo Energy in 2016 for public schools in Accra.
Lord knows this would have helped me in primary school, but hey it’s never too late, I will spend time playing this with my son. You can also get one for your family and kids by contacting Daffodils Games & Publishing Ltd on:
