Moons N Goochers - Mental Math - Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication, Division, Dice Game
MOONS & GOOCHERS!
PLAYERS ROLL BOTH DICE & TRY AND COMPLETE A “MOON” BY USING BOTH DICE TO COMPLETE AN ADDING, SUBTRACTION, MULTIPLICATION AND DIVISION ANSWER THAT CAN BE FOUND ON THE BOARD.
IF THEY CAN FIND AN ANSWER FOR ALL FUNCTIONS, THEY HAVE A “MOON” AND 6 POINTS!
EXAMPLE: If you would roll a 2 and a 12, you would be able to cover/strike out:
14 (2+12), 10 (12-2), 24 (2 x 12) , 6 (12 / 2)
PLAYERS GET ONE POINT FOR EVERY FUNCTION THEY CAN FIND AN ANSWER FOR. IF THEY CAN’T GET ANY OF THE ANSWERS, THEY HAVE A “GOOCHER” AND THEIR OPPONENT(S) GETS 3 POINTS.
CAN PLAY UP TO A PRE-DETERMINED SCORE LIKE 20 POINTS. FIRST PLAYER TO 20 WOULD WIN.
**AN ALTERNATIVE IS TO COVER UP THE ANSWERS ON EVERY TURN, MAKING IT HARDER TO COMPLETE A “MOON”, AND “GOOCHERS” WOULD OCCUR MORE OFTEN. POINTS WOULD NOT BE AWARDED AS EASILY.
GAME 9 ALLOWS STUDENTS OR TEACHERS TO FILL IN NUMBERS BETWEEN THE ONES ALREADY GIVEN.
GAME 10 ALLOWS STUDENTS OR TEACHERS TO USE THEIR OWN NUMBERS
MATERIALS NEEDED: TWO DICE. USE DICE THAT WILL ALLOW FOR REACHING NUMBERS ON THE BOARDS. EXAMPLE: 6 SIDED, 10 SIDED, 20 SIDED, 30 SIDED ETC.
BINGO CHIPS (YOUR CHOICE)
*A GREAT IDEA IS TO LAMINATE THE BOARDS AND USE DRY ERASE MARKERS.
10 DIFFERENT BOARDS TO CHOOSE FROM
