With the less-than-help of my daughter’s cat, I’ve made it through several cycles of editing my *Prealgebra & Geometry* index. If you’re curious about the process, you may enjoy my behind-the-scenes peek at How to DIY a Nonfiction Index.

There’s yet a ways to go, but it’s starting to look like what I want. The index includes game listings by category: card games, pencil and paper games, cooperative games, solitaires, etc.

One of the entries is “Games, Complete List of.”

So I counted…

Officially, the book features 41 games that help prepare students for high school math by playing with number properties, mixed operations, integers, algebraic functions, coordinate geometry, and more.

But when I counted all the official game listings *plus *all the game variations that were different enough to have their own names — 62 games.

Wow!

*Prealgebra & Geometry: Math Games for Middle School* is scheduled for publication in early 2021. Sign up for my newsletter to get updates.
