# 10 Times Tables - Remainders

## Maths Resource Description

Get The Buzz Games For Tables introduces a fun and educational game to help children practice their 10 times tables with a focus on understanding remainders. Each player requires a counter and a dice numbered from 1 to 6. The game is played on a specially designed 'Remainders Board – 10s' which features a series of numbers. Players take turns to roll the dice and move their counter up the board accordingly. Once landing on a number, the player must divide it by ten and work out the 'ten lots and the rest', effectively partitioning the number to understand how many full tens there are and what is left over. The remainder after dividing by ten becomes the player's score for that turn.

The objective of the game is to accumulate the highest possible score from remainders. For example, if a player lands on the number 144, they would calculate 144 ÷ 10. The first step is to understand that 10 x 10 equals 100, leaving 44. Then, acknowledging that 4 x 10 equals 40, it is determined that the result is 14 with a remainder of 4. The player would then score 4 points for that turn. The winner is declared when the first player crosses the finish line on the board, with the highest score of remainders being the ultimate goal. This game not only reinforces multiplication skills but also enhances mental arithmetic and the concept of division with remainders.
