This is a fun math game that encourages lots of no-prep math practice, and illustrates the commutative property in both addition and multiplication.
HOW TO PLAY:
1. Students roll dice to fill the middle four squares with random numbers.
2. Add the numbers in all directions.
3. Write the answers in the circles.
4. Write the equations in the spaces provided at the bottom.
Students will soon notice that the answers are the same no matter which direction numbers are added together (commutative property).
-Use the addition template that requires students to add diagonally
-Change the dice to 8 or 10-sided to make equations more difficult
I have included templates for all levels, as well as a page with four smaller templates on it so students can play several times.
You can laminate the templates for use with dry erase markers over and over again. This works very well in an independent math center.
Try playing with partners!
