Secret Code 13+4
You have been chosen for a special mission! Well you and a few of your closest…. Rivals. The night you have been planning and preparing for has come. The precious Mask of Amun Re has arrived and is now on display at the Museum. You pack your trusty dice, run through some precise calculations, and off you go to break into the museum. You know you’ll have to think quickly and combine numbers (add, subtract, multiply, and divide) to deactivate the light barriers and obtain the Mask of Amun Re! Will you be named The Best Arithmetic Agent? Will all your planning and preparation pay off?
Set up is easy so you will be off solving problems and deactivating barriers in no time at all.
The light barriers themselves provide some variety as they come out randomly and are double sided. This will ensure you’re not exactly playing the same game twice. (Well at least not twice in a row. If you think about it, it is probable you could repeat the same numbers and pattern at some point if you play enough games. In any case, the random distribution of the tiles provides some variability to the game.) Below are three other variants that can be easily implemented into your game.
Each roll of the dice will present new mathematical challenges and can provide great insight as to the student’s mathematical ability.
