Abstract: Teachers often ignore the instructional values of games. They tend to use games in class to 'fill time' or to let children have some fun. The purpose of this paper is to distinguish mathematical games from other popular games and examine the instructional values of mathematical games. This paper explains how different versions of the game "Cover Up" can be constructed and used for introducing the addition and substraction of related fractions to children.
