Use this fun game to consolidate your students’ knowledge of operations.

Students roll two dice. They add, subtract, multiply and divide the two numbers shown on the dice (if they can).

If any of the answers appear in the grid, they cover them with a counter. The first person to get to four answers in a row (horizontally, vertically or diagonally) wins!

I’m assuming each player needs their own “Roll It” board?

Hi Mark,
This is a very versatile game which can be played in a number of ways. The basic way would be for every student to have a board and play a form of bingo in a group situation with a pair of dice. Alternatively, the tasks can be individual maths drills or even played as a whole class activity. Thanks for your comment and if there is anything else I can assist you with, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Hi, I love this game and cannot wait to play it, however, I wanted to download the Word document but the margins are all wrong and it cuts the picture off the table. I wasn’t sure if I did something wrong, so thought I would ask here?

Hi Alana,

This doesn’t seem to be a problem when we try to download. Can you please try and download it again. If you have the same problem please feel free to send an email [email protected] and we would be more than happy to try and work out the issue together.
