"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!" -

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.
