AO elaboration and other teaching resources
apply multiplication facts in puzzles
This game gives students practice with basic multiplication facts. They will soon realise the benefits of throwing a one (because one is a factor of every number).
As a variation, students could use a dice that doesn’t have one on it, for example, a dice marked three to eight. The numbers on the board would have to be varied accordingly.
