Wiest, Lynda R.
Australian Primary Mathematics Classroom, v11 n4 p10-14 2006
Games are among the many types of activities that can be used to help promote number sense. Chosen and used wisely, games encourage learning and motivate many students to grasp concepts more quickly and fully. This article describes a popular and easy-to-implement number sense game--called Digits and Dice--most commonly used in conjunction with teaching place value. Variations of the game are described, in addition to ways in which the game may be extended to other number concepts that span the elementary and middle grades. (Contains 4 figures.)
