Students use a pair of dice (one 1-6 and one with higher numbers, such as 7-12 or higher) to record a multiplication equation. Using the distributive property, students will split one factor into two parts and record the new equation, multiply the parts, and record the final product. You can adapt this game in many different ways and still use the same recording sheet. For example, for struggling students you could supply them with a set of lower-numbered dice. For enrichment or upper grades, you could give the students two dice with higher numbers or have then roll and add the dice together to form the factors. The possibilities are endless!
When the recording sheets are full or the time is up, students will add up all of their products. The winner is the student with the highest sum of all the products in the end!
