A game for 2 or more players
This game helps learners to become familiar with the multiples of different numbers. Playing on a multiplication square provides support in finding multiples of a number, whilst allowing links between different times tables to be made, patterns in multiples to be identified and rules about multiples to be made.
You will need:
Take turns to roll the dice and then put a counter of your colour on any multiple of the number rolled. E.g. if 2 is rolled, a counter could be put on any multiple of 2, so any even number – it doesn’t have to be in the 2x row or column
The first person to place 4 of their counters in a straight unbroken line wins.
This game can be played exactly the same way on a 100 square . It encourages recognising multiples beyond those in the times tables facts and may involve using mental or written division methods to check if a number is a multiple of the one rolled.
