I recently received this kit from ThinkFun to review. As a math specialist, I work with teachers and students in Grades K - 12. I have played math dice before in the classroom, at home with my own children, as a tournament, and during a family night setting. ThinkFun has taken this game and made it SOOO simple to prepare and play. It not only has clear instructions, it comes with everything you need. As a teacher, I recommend laminating some of the items, to make them last longer, but that is truly the only thing you will need to do for instant fun and learning! MathDice is a GREAT way to reinforce the order of operations and get students "talking math." The ThinkFun website also has other FREE MathDice resources that can be printed out. These also resources are good for building the order of operations skills.

Got a review copy of Math Dice Tournament from Thinkfun. My first thought was - this is kinda like Challenge 24. And then I moved on to - this is better. Challenge 24 provides players with some numbers and then they each compete to use those numbers to get to 24 by adding, subtracting, multiplying, etc. My students have played Challenge 24 for years. Some like it and some don't. For some time now, I have thought Challenge 24 limited or a bit weird. Why 24? I mean does that number come up more often in life or nature? Maybe...maybe not. I work with students who like a challenge and sometimes they would give me looks that said, "Really, 24...again...I am adding subtracting etc. to get to...24..yawn." I think it is kind of weird that 24 is always the goal. Anyway, Thinkdice answers this problem by making the target number different each time. I think this increases mental flexibility and interest in the game.

Other things to keep it fresh - there are a few different games you can play with the materials. All instructions provided. Dodecahedron (12 sided) dice are always fun and help us get more numbers to work with. Rules are simple, but allow for focus on thinking and competition. Designed for 12-18 players...so not a whole class at once, but you can have half the class play while the other half works on something else and then switch. One small negative - game requires timers which are not provided. Probably would have made this more expensive...but when 6-9 teams need timers, it gives you a small roadblock to think about. If Thinkfun has a number of games requiring timers, and they sell a separate pack of timers so you don't keep buying timers, it is a good policy, if this is their only game with timers...I guess I gotta go find some timers.

I am the Math Lead Teacher for my elementary school and received this kit from Think Fun to review. It is really targeted for 5th grade and up (I suppose because you can use exponents to calculate your equations), but my third graders really enjoyed it! We did not use it for tournament play, but more for having multiple groups playing at the same time. Because I was working with younger kids, they worked cooperatively to try to reach the target number. I highly recommend this product for teaching kids how to be mentally flexible with numbers and increase their ability to do mental math.

I've been using Math Dice with my students for 9 years. It's a fantastic way to introduce order of operations, fraction concepts, negative numbers, and more. This year Think Fun was nice enough to give us the Math Dice Tournament Kit to try it out with our kids. The kit helped us to practice for our county's Math Dice tournament and even allowed us to put on our own mini-tournament at school. The Math Dice Tournament Kit is a wonderful resource for any school or club looking to put on their own tournament or use math dice as a teaching tool. Thanks again!

Our school system participates in a Math Dice Tournament every year. Our school has always practiced with regular games of Math Dice. The tournament kit allows a teacher to set up the real-life tournament play. They can play against many different players and see how skilled their classmates are at the game. I have tried for years to figure out how to maneuver my students through a tournament simulation and failed. This kit did all the work for me. I will be using it every year to help the students practice so that they strength their computation skills, build speed and learn to relax under competition pressure.

I was so excited when Thinkfun sent us a Math Dice Tournament Kit to review. My fourth and fifth grade gifted and talented students have enjoyed getting to play the game cooperatively using their quick math reasoning to reach (or come closest to) the target number. They challenge themselves to use a variety of equations to meet the goal. I like that they are constantly thinking of many different ways to reach the target number. Students can't wait to compete in an actual tournament! As a busy educator, I appreciate that the kit comes with everything I need (including clear instructions) to easily set up our first tournament. I plan to laminate the game mats for repeated use, but I feel that's the only thing I need to do to be prepared for a fun tournament! As stated by two fifth graders, "Math Dice makes you think of every corner of math." and "Math Dice can help you get better at math but is way more fun than flash cards!"
