Quick, simple, and fun for your students, this number cube game could take as little as 10 minutes or as long as half an hour. You can have kids switch partners after each game, and play as long as you would like.
This is a slightly more difficult version than the first one (also found on my store page). It also includes MORE expressions - 23 in all!
These directions are included at the top of the page: Roll your number cube. Replace the variable in each expression with the number you rolled. After you evaluate the expression, the player with the greatest value wins that round. The player who wins the most rounds at the end of the game is the champion (until next time).
Example: The expression is 4x – 2, and you roll a 3.
So you would evaluate 4(3) – 2, which is worth 10.
If your opponent's roll results in a number greater than 10, they win. If not, you win.
Your students are going to love evaluating expressions!
