Mathematical Games

We have been playing strategy games this week and learning how to use our mathematical thinking to help us win! Perfect training for all those games at Christmas!

Our first games this week was Shut the BoxYou can try out the game by clicking on the link above.

You have to roll two dice and you can turn over any cards that add up to that title. If you cannot turn any more over your go has ended. You count up the numbers you have left and the person with the smallest number wins. If you don’t have any left you have shut the box!

What number do you definitely have to roll to shut the box? A good answer will explain your mathematical thinking using because.
