Play this game as a lesson starter for the whole class or in pairs. Use a 0 to 9 spinner or dice.

VERSION 1

This is a game of chance.

Each player must draw the grid on a showboard or in their notebook.

Spin the spinner and the players must write the digit in one of the six boxes. Once a number is written the position cannot be changed. Repeat five more times.

Then the learners divide the 4-digit number by the 2-digit number and write the answer on the top line.

The player (or players) with the quotient closest to 1000 wins.

Score 1 point for a win.

VERSION 2 This is a game of skill

Each player must draw the grid on a showboard or in their notebook.

Spin the spinner 5 times and make a note of the 5 numbers that come up. The players must write the digits in the five boxes so that the answer to the division is as close as possible to 1000. A time limit such as 5 minutes is set for this. The player (or players) with the quotient closest to 1000 wins. Score 1 point for a win.
