Division Jump - Division Math Game

Skills: Division of one-digit numbers into two, three, and four digit numbers.

Number of Players: 2 to 3

What you need: pair of dice, game board

Preparation: Print game board.

Object of the Game: To score the most points by correctly answering division problems while traveling around the game board.

How To Play:

• Player 1 rolls the dice and moves her piece that many spaces on the game board.
• Player 1 then draws 2, 3, or 4 cards from the top of the deck and arranges in any order to form a number.

Example:

Player 1 draws two of hearts, five of spades, and six of clubs.  Player 1 arranges these three cards horizontally in any order front of her.  She chooses to form the number, 362.

• Player 1 writes the number formed with her cards on her paper and performs the division problem.  Divide the number indicated on the space they landed on into the number the number formed with the cards.
• Player 1 announces her answer along with remainder (if there is one) to the players.
• One or more of the other players will check (with calculator) to see if Player 1 is correct.  To Check With Calculator:
• If player 1 answers correctly, she receives 2, 3, or 4 points (2 pts. for a 2digit divisor, 3 pts. for a 3 digit divisor, or 4 pts. for a 4 digit divisor.)  If incorrect, player 1 receives no points for that round.  The Playerâ€™s turn ends for the round after their score for that division problem is figured out.
• The next player (take turns in clockwise direction) takes their turn in the same way.
• If a player lands on an alligator, they lose the number of points shown on that space.
• When a player lands on a snake, they lose a turn.
• And if a player lands on a scorpion, they lose 1 point.
• If player lands on a frog, they get to jump to the next two division spaces (one at a time) and perform the divisions for those spaces.  They will perform the division problem for the first space and figure their points as explained before.  After they do that division, they move their piece to the next division space and perform that division and figure their points
• The player to have the most points after ten rounds is declared the winner. Enjoy!!!
