### Directions:

Roll 4 dice, and write down each number in the frame box. Using all four numbers, try to find an equation with an answer that is one of the numbers on the bowling pins.

**Example:** if you roll a 3,4,2,2, you could make the equation (4+3)+2-2 = 7. You would then color in pin #7

Do this as many times as you can and try to knock over all the pins.

Once you run out of possibilities or the time has run out, move on to the next frame.

**Or**

Try for a SPARE, students roll a second time. The first numbers are void, and students may only use the numbers generated from the second roll.

### Adaptations:

Make a list that has 4 numbers in a set. Everyone needs a different set of 4 numbers (at first these numbers may need to be chosen by the teacher).

Then they can use any order of operations to make it come out to a number that is set up in bowling pins. So the possible answers are 1-10.

**Example:** if you choose the numbers 52, 16, 45, 15 you could make the equation (52-45)x(16-15) = 7. You would then color in pin #7

They use the same set of 4 numbers until all the answers have been found. Then choose another 4 numbers

**First person to get all ten pins down. Wins!**
