Dice

Don’t go overlooking these old friends. They’re not just for “fun” probability lessons (note, rolling dice twenty times to count odds and evens is NOT fun, just noisy. Try harder).

Use dice for addition / subtraction / multiplication / division lessons or recaps. Rather than giving a worksheet, let them roll a combination of dice to use as their numbers, or to determine the hundreds / tens / units of their numbers, or decimals, or numerators and denominators or… or… you get the idea. Be creative. If you want to up your game, there are also these wonderful non-transitive dice by Dr James Grime.
