Activity 1

Multiplying madness

This is a multi-player game. Each player draws a grid like the one shown.

  • Players take it in turns to roll a 6-sided die and place the number in any one of their squares.

  • Once all of the players have filled their grid, each player works out the answer to their multiplication.

  • The aim of the game is to be the player with the greatest answer to the multiplication that they have made.
