# Left Overs

## Maths Resource Description

"Left Overs" is an engaging and educational game designed to help players practice and improve their division skills. Suitable for anyone learning to divide, the game requires a simple 0-9 dice as the main tool. The objective of the game is to throw the dice to generate a two-digit number and then decide whether to divide this number by 3, 4, or 5. The choice of divisor is strategic, as players aim to divide the number without leaving a remainder to score the maximum of 2 points. If a remainder is left after the division, the player still earns 1 point.

The game is won by the first player to accumulate a total of 10 points. An interesting tip provided within the game's instructions highlights that numbers ending in 5 or 0 will not have a remainder when divided by 5, which can be a useful strategy for players to consider. Additionally, players are encouraged to use multiplication facts to assist with division. For instance, when dividing the number 64 by 4, one could partition the number into 40 (10 x 4) and 24 (6 x 4) to simplify the calculation. Similarly, knowing that 20 x 3 equals 60 can help when dividing 64 by 3. "Left Overs" is not only fun but also a practical way to apply and reinforce mathematical concepts in a game setting.
