Each child has two sheets. One blank and the another
one
showing arrays.

How to play the game.


They do not look at each other’s arrays.

First child give location. For example “I am looking at


the array in the top right hand corner”.
They describe the array – “It has three dots in each row
and
there are 6 rows altogether”.

Second child records the equation. For example 6 x 3 or


3 x 6, and they have to state how they image the array.
Either 6 groups of 3 or 3 made 6 times. They earn 1 point
if they are correct. They are given 30 secs to write as
many
equations as they can to represent the array.

6x3 3x6
18 ÷ 6 18 ÷ 3
6+6+6
12 + 6
3+3+3+3+3
3x2x3

1 point is scored for each correct equation and points are


tallied at the end of the game.

GAME

ROUND UP: a game for 2 players.


You will need 3 dice
a coin
red counters for 1 player, blue for the
other
the board on the next page

To Play Toss 3 dice. Write down all the 3-digit


numbers you can make. You may not use
a digit twice.

Example If you toss 2, 3 and 6 you can


make 236, 263, 326, 362, 632,
623.

• Toss a coin. If it is heads, round the 3-digit


numbers to the nearest 10. If it is tails
round the 3-digit numbers to the nearest
100.
If you toss a tail the numbers made in the
example would be rounded to 200, 300, 300,
400, 600, 600.

• Place a counter on each square which has a


number you made.
For the example above, counters would be
placed on 200, 300, 400, and 600.

• The winner is the person with the most


counters on the board after 6 turns each.
100 510 200 320 300 610 700 410
300 270 100 400 110 100 200 600

Divide It
A game for two players and one dice (1-6). They will need the game
board as shown.

The dice are thrown one at a time. The first die is for ‘tens’ and the
second for ‘ones’.

If the first player throws a 1 and a 5 for 15 then they place a counter
on any board number that divides evenly into 15 with leaving a
remainder. Eg. 3 or 5. Only one counter can be placed at each turn.

The winner is the first player to make a straight line of four counters
in any direction.

8 6 4 2 9
4 2 7 3 8
7 6 2 5 6
3 3 4 8 5
5 7 2 3 9
Variations
Each player has their own board. The winner is the first to make a
row or column of five counters.

Use a ‘tens’ die numbers 3- 4, 5, 6, 7, 8.
