These five games are great for allowing students to practice multiplication and division facts at various levels throughout the year. The games are easy to learn and require simple materials such as dice or a pencil and paperclip spinner to play. All five games make great math center or math station activities.
(The games are listed in order of suggested progression of usage throughout the year.)

-Relating Multiplication and Division BINGO
Help students make the connection between the commutative property of multiplication and division with this fun and engaging game! Students fill in their boards with multiplication facts with a given list. You draw cards with division facts (included) and students have to determine if the division fact is in the same fact family as one of the multiplication problems on their BINGO boards.

Students use spinners to create two-digit divided by one-digit division problems to solve. Most of the division problems created will have remainders. This helps students master the important skill of finding how many whole groups of a divisor can be found in a certain number and with what remainder--a prerequisite skill to long division! As usual, I have included differentiated boards to make it easier for your students to get the practice they need at their level.
