### Focus on Multiplication

#### Games

• Multiplcation dice game boards (using 2 normal dice and 1 dice numbered 7 to 12)
• How to play:
• AIM: to get either an entire row/column or diagonal on the board OR 6 answers
• There are 4 different boards in the document
• two (or more) learners share a board and 3 dice (as described above). If you need to, divide into 2 teams
• 1st pair (or team) throws the dice and use addition and multiplication only to find an answer that is on the board
• if they find an answer, they mark that answer for their team. If they cannot find an answer they pass dice to the other pair / team
• Winning pair / team is first to get either an entire row/column or diagonal on the board OR 6 answers
• Example: throw 8, 5 and 4 with the dice
• Possible answers could be:
• Add 5 & 4 = 9, multiply by 8 to get 72
• Add 8 & 4 = 12, multiply by 5 to get 60
• Add 8 & 5 = 13, multiply by 4 to get 52
• Look for these answers on the board
