In my last post for summer school I am sharing another of the events in the “2012 Stezzi Math Olympics”. It was our last class of the Olympics and the race for the group with the most medals was as close as it gets. The red and green groups were tied at 8 medals each going into the
final day. The last event of the Olympics would be ”Dice to 200″.
Here is how the game is played. Students must roll a pair of dice and quickly add up the products. This is recorded on their own sheet of paper.
As each pair of dice is rolled and the product is determined it must be added to the previous product. For example, if Jessica rolls a 3 and a 4 her product is 12. If next turn she rolls a 6 and 4 her product is 24, and must be added to her previous product: 12. Her total at this part of the game would be 36 (12 + 24) .
