Sample text

A card is chosen at random and read out. On picking out, say, ‘odd numbers’, the caller decides whether to say ‘odd numbers only are running’ or ‘no odd numbers running today’. Immediately, the players must go to an appropriate stop. Any player not at a bus stop after a given time is out.

The caller calls random multiples and dividends. NB – Whichever way the game is played there will be some numbers which can be used either as a multiple or a dividend; in this example, 0, 4, 8 and 12. This is only significant in the lower order tables and can be overcome, if thought necessary, by ruling that only one or two of such numbers are permissible. DIFFEREN TIATION Vary the times table chosen. 18 RESOURCES GROUP SIZE Probability Pack of cards Pairs Shuffle the cards. The players take turns to hold the cards and reveal one at a time.
