Using Double Dice is a fun and engaging way for kids to practice math.

## Beginner

One player: Roll one or more dice and add all the numbers.

2+ players: Each player rolls one or more dice and adds all the numbers. Points are earned for speed, or for the greatest sum.

### Subtraction:

One player: Roll two dice. Find the sum of each die. Subtract the smaller sum from the greater sum.

2+ players: Same as one player, but points are earned for speed or for the greatest difference.

Note: Games scored by speed work best when the players are of the same ability.

### Fractions

Use the inside die as the numerator, and the outside die as the denominator.

Depending on the outcome, change an improper fraction to a mixed number; reduce fractions; add, subtract, multiply or divide fractions; order fractions; or find common denominators.

### Integers

Subtract the inside die from the outside die. It’s okay for a larger number to be subtracted from a smaller number, resulting in a negative number. For example, 2 – 6 = -4.

Create larger numbers by combining dice as described for subtraction.
