How to play
Write the numbers on the end points of the number line, according to the numbers you want to work with:
- 0 and 100 for 2-digit numbers
- 0 and 1000 for 3-digits
- 0 and 10,000 for 4-digits
The players must then work together to record the other numbers on the line or, for more challenge, they can be left blank.
Players each choose a differently coloured pen/pencil, then take turns rolling the dice to make a number with the appropriate number of digits. If using a 10-sided dice, they may choose where to record each digit in their number, which encourages more strategic thinking. They then mark this number on the numberline.
If the number has already been marked by a player, rearrange the digits or roll again.
The winner is the first player to mark 4 numbers in an unbroken line.
