5 Dice: Order of Operations Games
Solve problems involving multiple steps and multiple operations. Role the dice, these values are now used to construct an equation with the result as close to the target as possible using the rules stated below. Assume we rolled the values shown
NUMBER RUMMY – Order of Operations
RULES: One player shuffles the deck and deals seven cards, face-down, to each player. Then she places the remainder of the deck face-down in the center of the table and, Finally, turns the top card of the deck face-up next to the deck. This card starts the discard pile.
Each player builds books of two or more cards whose numbers combine in some way to make 10. The numbers may be combined using any operations the player knows.
Order of Operation Bowling
Roll 4 dice, and write down each number in the frame box. Using all four numbers, try to find an equation with an answer that is one of the numbers on the bowling pins.
Example: if you roll a 3,4,2,2, you could make the equation (4+3)+2-2 = 7. You would then color in pin #7
TARGET NUMBER: Order of Operations Game
To play the game, the player to the left of the player who Shuffled, copies the top-digit any one of her four squares. Then the top-digit card is turned face-down beside the digit-deck. Play continues in this manner until all players have filled in their four squares. Each player adds her four numbers. The player with the sum nearest the target number, 20, wins the game.
Time Filler: Get as Close as You Can!
Pick a random number in the thousands and write it on the board. You can tell students it is your Target Number….
A Poster/anchor chart to put on your Math Vocabulary board to use as a reference. Along with cards to use as bookmarks for a quick reference, students love putting these in their interactive note books.
Also included is a 24inch x 36inch (poster size) JPEG file included, so you can get the actual poster printed. Just take to your local copy shop and have it printed in poster size.
