Are you ready to have some fun with math? We are going to begin by playing a game that will help you sharpen your mental math skills. We will use this game as a warm-up before we dive deeper into the lesson.

- I will choose a number between 1 and 100.
- You will have to guess what the number is.
- You will have to do this by asking yes-or-no questions about the number I have chosen.
- You can only guess the number once.
- The person who guesses the number correctly wins.

I have chosen a number between 1 and 100. Who wants to guess first? Remember, you can only ask yes-or-no questions about the number I have chosen. Let's see who can guess correctly!

You might be wondering how this game relates to mathematics. The truth is, mental math skills are critical to becoming a successful math student. Being able to quickly add, subtract, multiply, and divide in your head is not only useful in math, but it can also help you in real-life situations. In this lesson, we will learn about some mental math strategies that can help you master basic operations in your head. Let's get started!
