Description:
South Central Service Cooperative is excited to announce a new opportunity for area students in grades 3–4 to demonstrate their arithmetic skills in a fun way. Through a partnership with Mankato Area Community Education and Recreation and Minnesota State University, Mankato, SCSC will offer a winter and spring tournament. Math Dice is a fast, fun dice game of mental math where math becomes more fun when you think on the fly! Players roll two 12-sided target dice to get a target number. Three scoring dice are then rolled and the fun begins when students try to combine these numbers using addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, or even powers to build an equation that is closest, or equal to, the target. This mentally challenging and fun dice game helps players sharpen math skills by solving problems in a fun new way. Rounds of matches are completed to determine a tournament champion.
