## Spin to Win Math Game

### What You Need to Play this Math Game:

1 game spinner
1 game board for each player (see below)
9 counters for each player
2 or more players

### Game Set-Up:

– Students draw up a game board like the one below.
– Players place their counters on the numbers on their game board.  More than one counter may be placed on each number, and numbers may be left blank.

### How to Play the Game:

1. Launch the spinner
2. Spin the wheel twice.
3. Players add, subtract, multiply or divide these numbers to make a number they have covered on their game board.  If successful, the counter is removed.
4. Players continue to take turns in this fashion until a player has removed all of their counters.

### How to Win the Game:

The player to remove all of their counters first wins the game.

### Game Tips:

– If playing with a large group, game boards can be quickly drawn on paper and symbols drawn/crossed off instead of moving counters.
– Students can play in teams of two, discussing how best to use the numbers spun to increase the likelihood of clearing their game board.
– After the first round, discuss game board arrangements.  Which numbers were the easiest/trickiest to make?  Why?  How can you use this information to your advantage when arranging your game board?

### Game Variations:

– Extend by using a game board with numbers from 3-15, and spin the spinner 3 times each round.  Watch those cogs turn as students become finely tuned problem-solving machines!
– Use a game spinner with more numbers (adjusting the game board accordingly).
– Play non-competitively by having students record how many spins it took to remove all of their counters – can they improve their personal best?
