Dividing Numbers

This is an interesting number game that focuses on division

You need a dice, a pencil and some paper

To play this game you each need a paper and pencil.

Next, choose any six numbers from the following set and write them on your own piece paper.

4     5     6     8     9     10     12     15     18     20     24     30     36     40     42     48     50     54     60

Now, take it in turns to roll the dice.

If the number you roll divides exactly into one of the numbers on your paper you can cross it off.

For example: you have chosen the numbers

6,  10,  18,  30,  42,  50

You roll a 5. 5 divides exactly into three of your numbers so you could cross off 10, 30 or 50

If you roll a 1 on the dice you must roll again.

The first person to cross off all six of their numbers is the winner!
