    Sum Fun is a project about integrating art and games with fourth grade Math class in order to improve the learning and increase the attentiveness of students. I took the Math Lebanese mandatory book that is used in Grade 4 in Lebanon and designed 21 games & exercises for 21 lessons. It constitutes of a box that contains 21 games and art exercises to be used as add-ons to the already found Lebanese Math curriculum and therefore they are strictly based on the mandatory Math lessons Lebanese schools teach in Grade 4. Those games and exercises are divided into 4 categories: Problem solving, speed, drawing/painting and collage making. In details, the box contains: - 10 games (10 packages) and 360 playing cards. - 2 board games printed on fabric - 11 exercises - 15 templates that are provided on a CD - 1 manual to explain to the teachers in details how every game and exercise should be done and played. - Stickers, pins and awards to be given to the students to encourage them during the school year. On top of that, Sum Fun provides a website for teachers that is both a blog and a forum in order for them to share what is happening in their classes, to ask other teachers who are using the Sum Fun box questions as well as give each other tips.
