How to Play

  1. Choose how many students and print the sheets using the Go button.
  2. Cut out the individual cards, shuffle them, and hand one to each student.
  3. Keep the Facilitator Notes card and call out the first number.
  4. The student with that number tells the class what operation to perform (e.g., "Multiply by 3").
  5. Students silently compute the result.
  6. The result will be a new number, and that new number will belong to another student.
  7. Repeat the process until you get to the end!
