"This is a fantastic app for 4th grade students and up. It reviews the procedures for adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing fractions in the instructions and gives the users challenges. The best part is probably the ability for users to challenge their friends and connect using different devices close by!" -
Challenging App by M.L.I.S - Version 1.4 - Apr 14, 2013
Many classrooms don't have the resources for every student to have an iPad. Fortunately, there are ways to solve this problem and still get the most out of the 4 Dice game.
1. One Device with Multiple Players
This is usually a situation where there is one device, which is probably owned by the teacher. Write the problem out on the board. Have each student get out a piece of paper and a pencil or use the printable version of the game. Set a time limit - one minute is recommended - to have each student try to solve the problem on the board.
2. A Few Devices with Multiple Players
This is usually a situation where there are a few devices, but not enough for everyone to have their own. Let students work in small groups with one device. A blank piece of paper or the printable board can be used to record work. To do this:
Create a multiplayer username (ex. Group 1)
Use the numbers rolled on the device and solve the problem
Input the information from the answer into the device to check it
3. Multiple Devices with Multiple Players
If there are enough devices for everyone, there are four basic options: let students work individually, break students into small groups of two or three, split off into groups of two and compete as partners, or play as a classroom.
- Updated to run on current iOS
- Fixed Multiplayer Mode using Bluetooth
Ratings and Reviews
Nice Math App!
I love that this app can be played between two players. By allowing students to connect they can group and play together. Another thing that I like about the app is that you can send progress reports. Also, using it with a variety of students you are able to be used with multiple players in order to track progress with different classes throughout the day. I see over eighty students and this app would be helpful for an educator a similar position. I like the white board feature as well. It is wonderful that students get the chance to work out the problems as they would on scrap paper.
Overall, the app does encourage students to use higher-order thinking. I also like that when shaking; kids can shake the ipad to throw the dice. What I love is when using this app with students it promotes that players use problem solving skills for adding, subtraction, multiplication and division of fractions.I like how it gives that answer and you must find out what would give you the answer by working with the four dice that you roll.
Email function doesn't work
My daughter just got this app today, and I tried to email her score to her teacher, but it keeps failing. I also tried to email the printable sheets to myself and that also failed. Is this a temporary glitch or a bug that needs to be fixed?
Confusing and slow
