# How Crazy Can You Make It?!? Game – Part Two – Free Math Tutoring Video

This time around we started without paper and just used the Cuisenaire Rods. I tried to help my girls see more interesting ways of naming numbers to help develop more number sense and especially to work on fractions skills. This is a great activity to do to help you know where a child is at in their understanding and to help stretch their thinking to more mature ways of viewing numbers. You can work on all sorts of skills. It’s the type of activity that can be done many ways and at many levels!
