Dice – Maths Games

So I went to Tiger today and couldn’t resist some of the wonderful products they have for sale! I bought these dice for 2 euro and cannot wait to use them for Maths! Some ideas;



Number recognition

  • Roll the dice 
  • What’s your number?
  • What comes next? What comes before?
  • What is 2 more? 2 less?
  • Add 5
  • Take away 3
  • Multiply by 6
  • Divide by 2
  • Increase by 13
  • Decrease by 3
  • Order the dice from smallest to largest and largest to smallest
