Learning strategies for quickly adding numbers
has never been more fun! These printable math center games are the perfect way to encourage students to experiment with skip counting, making 10s, doubling
or various strategies
works. This set of games increase in difficulty by simply adding more dice. Students like the sport theme
In a classroom, this game easily caters for most abilities, and encourages students to think about the probability of throws; more able students think and use strategy.
In Math Centers it is a great activity; all children playing the same game, and discussing their theories and ideas.
Playing in pairs encourages students to talk about their decisions, successes, mistakes and I believe this sharing of ideas is vital to education.
In the beginning I get students to use 4 dice, so they're adding numbers 4-24.
Then they move onto deciding whether to use more or less. At some stages of the game, it is wise to decrease the dice and logical to work out the possibilities and chances.
The files are for black or color printing. I usually print on bright, colorful paper if using black ink, and laminate. Store with dice and it's ready!
