In the classroom
Many numeracy activities use dice to generate random numbers. This resource contains a set of four 'virtual' dice with six, eight, ten and twelve sides. Clicking a die generates a random number between 1 and 12 (depending on which die you select).

A unique feature is that you can also customise the dice with your own values. These values can be up to five digits long and include either positive, negative or a combination of numbers. You can even use text or symbols for the values giving you unlimited versatility and difficulty!

The resource uses a genuine random generator therefore the die can be used for investigating probability.

Curriculum references
No curriculum references are included as the die can be used for such diverse purposes as supporting number and algebra to spelling or even generating stories through keywords!
