This product encourages students to think critically about their basic fact knowledge. Instead of just solving basic facts, students will have to use mental math to manipulate numbers in order to create basic addition and subtraction facts.
To play, students will:
1) Roll a die four times to generate four numbers.
2) Mentally manipulate the numbers to determine if any basic facts can be made using any three of those four numbers.
3) If facts can be made, students will record the addition and subtraction problems that can be created.
This activity requires no prep from the teacher. Using dice to generate the numbers allows students to play repeatedly without the need for additional worksheets. Play will be different each time, depending on what numbers are generated! Game also includes visual directions to allow for independent play.
