Substitution KS3/4 Maths activity
use hexagonal rollers and dice to practice substitution in a fun way. Based on an idea from the Maths Sandpit blog. Print out the page onto card. Cut in half (it makes 2 hexagonal rollers). Fold on the lines and fix as a hexagonal prism roller. Roll the hexagon and a dice. Substitute the number on the dice into the expression on the hexagon. Can be a 2 player game to see who gets the highest score or could be to see who can get the largest total in say 5 goes.
