I’m trying to build up a collection of maths games for lesson fillers, reward and skills practise.
My current favourite, and Yr 9 seemed to enjoy it this afternoon, is Pig (look for Pig on MathSphere, there are some other good free resources there too). There are several addition/subtraction games using dice, what I like about this once is that students can loose the score they’ve built up when they throw a 1. Some students are conservative… whereas some can be greedy. They discuss their strategies, they make informal decisions about fairness. For the end of the day, Yr 9 were doing more maths than they realised!
