**Multiplication SALUTE:**

This game helps students practice multiplying and finding the missing factor.

This is a game for three players. Remove the face cards from a regular deck of cards (ace represents one). Deal out the cards evenly to two players who sit facing each other; each holds the stack of cards face down. The third player sits where s/he can see the other two players. When the third player says “Salute,” the two players with cards simultaneously take the top cards off their respective piles and hold them on their foreheads with the face of the card outwards so that they can only see the other person’s card. The third player announces the product of the two cards. Each of the two players holding a card tries to figure out what number they have on their heads. Rotate players so everyone gets a chance to be the one who says, “salute,” and gives the product.

To play with two people: One person looks at both cards and tells the other person the product. They then put one card face up and one card face down on the table. The other person tries to figure out what number is on the card that is face down.
