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