Students move their race car around the track by solving problems created with the roll of dice, or prepared word problems.

Modifications

A variant of the game based on estimation can be done, where students have to estimate the correct answer to the problem in their head using mental strategies. This estimate is checked by another player using a calculator, and if the answer is within 20 (5 for 2 point questions), they receive the points.

EXTENSIONS

Groups of more advanced students could be given 7,8,9, or 10 sided for the cards where they generate their own questions.
