Long Division Game
So this game is played like baseball, and the quotient determines how many spaces you move.
- The game begins by player one rolling a 10 sided die four times. After each roll, they write that number in one of the boxes on the division page. This right here requires a little strategy. You see, the higher the quotient….the more bases they get to traverse.
Hint: What they want to get is the largest dividend that they can, and the smallest divisor that they can. They may get lucky and roll a one right away and place that in the divisor place. Or they may hold out hoping for a smaller number, and end up rolling a nine to place in the divisor spot. Placing that nine in the divisor spot may be what gives them a strike!!! You never know!!
- After the numbers have been placed in the boxes, it is time to solve. Player one does their work on a whiteboard, while player two checks with the calculator.
- Now is the time to head to the bases. If player one answers the questions wrong that counts as a strike. If they get it right, they look at the chart and move up that many bases.
- This pattern continues until player two has two strikeouts or gets three runs. Then it is player two’s turn.
- Finally, the game ends after three rounds have been played or time is called. The player with the most runs wins!
I hope your children enjoy this fun long division game!!
