Students roll the dice, round numbers, mentally compute multiplication problems, and find corresponding products on the game board. First player to get 5 IN A ROW WINS! TOSS BOSS makes it easy to master ROUNDING & MENTAL MATH SKILLS.
Research says that understanding computation algorithms before using them leads to increases in both conceptual and procedural knowledge. (Mathematical Learning and Study Committee, 2001) In this game, students focus on the properties of multiplication, looking at patterns, and then develop understanding of the multiplication process before moving on to the algorithm. Students choose between using compatible numbers and rounding to estimate products. Students will not even realize they are practicing their basic facts for multiplication, the rules for rounding, and the rules for multiplying with multiples of 10 in this game.
