Played the game of “Clocks” with my 6th grade math workshop today, giving me the chance to gather some informal data–Who still adds or subtracts using their fingers? Who pulls out their multiplication/division table? Who wants to use exponents or integers?
Clocks–Roll three dice. Manipulate those 3 numbers with any operation(s) to create expressions with values between 1 and 12 (the numbers on the clock). Can you clear the clock with only one roll?
