    For example, i create a scavenger hunt where learners have to find and solve math problems hidden around the classroom or playground. I use math games such as “Math Jeopardy” or “Math Bingo” to assess learners’ understanding of various mathematical concepts.

    Another fun way to assess learners’ understanding is to have them create their own math problems and solutions and share them with the class. This not only assesses their understanding but also promotes creativity and critical thinking.

    Additionally, i use manipulatives such as blocks or counting cubes to have learners physically demonstrate their understanding of mathematical concepts such as addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division.

    What other playful assessment methods do you suggest for assessing learners’ understanding of mathematical concepts? L
