Math on a Roll
Builds math facts skills
Assign an operation -- addition, subtraction, or multiplication -- to be performed in this game. Divie students into groups of three or four, and give each group a pair of dice. Player 1 rolls the dice and adds the two numbers that appear. Player 2 rolls the dice and adds the two numbers that appear. Players 3 and 4 (if included) roll the dice and record their results. The player with the highest score in the round earns a point. If two or more players roll the same high total, neither player earns a point. The game ends when time is up (the player with the most points wins) or when a player reaches a score of 10.
