Making Math Fun with Just a Roll of the Dice
Math Dice is a fast, fun game of mental math that helps students around the globe learn the power and flexibility of numbers. Originally called Dice Mania, Math Dice was invented for a school project by 6th grader, Sam Ritchie.
To play, roll the two 12-sided dice and multiply the numbers together to get the target number. Then roll the three six-sided dice to get the scoring numbers. By using each scoring number only once, players must add, subtract, multiply, divide or even use powers to get an answer that is as close to the target number as possible.
Although Math Dice is a simple game to play, the learning power is extraordinary. Now 15 years later, Math Dice has become one of the greatest math games ever and has become a “must have” for classrooms everywhere.
A Fun Dice Game for the Classroom
Shortly after being released, Math Dice rolled its way into classrooms, specifically 5th-7th grade classrooms. Teachers love having a fun, exciting way to teach and reinforce math skills. And students enjoy learning through play. From simply playing a couple times a week during class to team-building exercises and even school wide tournaments, educators have found Math Dice to be an amazing classroom game and teaching tool.
