Commit and Capture

Commit & Capture


Concept:  mixed operations, order of operations

Equipment:  Various Dice

Goal/Objective:  Create highest answer for each math sentence.

Set-Up and Play:  Players take turns choosing a die and rolling it. They record the roll in their math sentence on their sheet. Once each player has completed their math sentence, they solve it and compare answers. Whoever has the greatest answer (or greatest absolute value in the case of a negative answer) wins the point for that round. Player winning the most rounds wins over all.

Variation:  Players take turns choosing/rolling a die but both players have to use the roll and may place the roll in ANY math sentence.  When all the sentences are filled and solved, then answers are compared to see who wins each round.
