AREA DICE GAME.

We are really proud of all the mathematical resources that we share with the intention that mathematics be comprehensive and meaningful for our students. Little by little, we have created a repertoire of very interesting activities.

I share below the link of another interesting activity that we have done this morning in class. It is a game called AREA DICE GAME.

Area Dice Game
  • A game for 2 or 3 players.
  • Each player chooses a colour pencil or texta they will use in the game.
  • Players take turns rolling the dice, using the numbers that they rolled to draw the perimeter of a rectangle or square & writing the area in the middle of the shape.
  • Game ends when players run out of room to draw.
  • Winner is the player who has used the largest area/most squares.
A couple of tips:
Have the students add up their areas as they go so that it is easier for them to work out the winner in the end!
I always take with me a class set of dice, just in case I can’t locate any in the classroom that I’m in. You can usually find cheap dice in discount stores or on eBay.
I also take with me a book of 1cm grid paper. I buy this from a newsagency. Grid paper is handy to have for games like this one, maths, graphing, and creating word searches & crosswords.
