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'm horrible with game directions, but my kids are great and this seems pretty straight forward. Our only confusion came when we didn't have the correct number of students to conduct the tournament. I have a small group of 12, so it isn't rare to have that oddball number that doesn't quite work. With experience, I should find ways to modify. The other hiccup came when kids tied when I called time to switch.Read more ›
I am a 5th grade teacher in a multi-ability classroom of 22 children. We have been using Math Dice now for a month, the tournament for a few weeks. There are a lot of positives to say about this product. before using it in the classroom, I had once set of Math Dice I would project on the ELMO overhead and we would solve as a class/group/individual to get practice on it. Furthermore, I downloaded some free activities from ThinkFun on their homepage that helped the children understand what to do with MathDice and to reiniforce the concept of Order of Operations.
1. Most kids will get involved with this game - the tournament set up eventually allows them to trickle down/up to kids their level. As a teacher, I can actually hear them thinking aloud.."Hmm..4 times 4 is 16 adding 3 is 19 but I need 22. So 4 times 3 is twelve..etc.) And this thinking aloud happens on all levels.
2. It's a great tool to teach kids order of operations with parenthesis and exponents, as well as basic operations. It can be adjusted to add or subtract whatever operations you are working on at the time. If you have a gifted population, you might multiply the two dice together for target number and include exponents. For a lower ability class, they may add the two dice together, and use basic operations.
