This free multimedia ebook is a collection of ten mathematical dice and domino games that are simple to learn and quick to play, making this yet another excellent educational resource from numeracy specialist Ronit Bird.
The aim of these five dice games and five domino games is for your child to have fun, while painlessly learning and reinforcing important numeracy topics. By engaging with games, rather than worksheets, children are much more easily motivated to spend time on areas of maths that need practice, and much more likely to improve their understanding and memory of the underlying mathematical concepts.
The games have been carefully chosen to appeal to all ages and to target a range of specific arithmetic skills. They are presented roughly in order of difficulty. For example, the easiest games help children add and subtract small numbers by focusing on how single-digit quantities can be built out of smaller components. By contrast, one of the more advanced games in the collection is about remainders in division, while another is designed to help children develop a conceptual understanding of averages.
A very popular feature of all Ronit Bird’s ebooks are the short demonstration videos that are embedded into every relevant section of the text. In ‘Dice & Domino Games’ (as in the previous ‘Card Games for Addition & Subtraction’) a separate demonstration video accompanies the clear and detailed instructions for every game, enabling readers to learn exactly how to play the games by simply watching the rules in action.
