What is Multiplication Boxes?

Multiplication Boxes is a hands-on game

that combines strategy and multiplication practice. The game involves spinning a number, finding the product on the game board, and connecting dots to form squares. It's perfect for reinforcing multiplication facts and enhancing problem-solving skills.


How to Play Multiplication Boxes

  1. Set Up:

    • Print the game board and spinner from the download link below.

    • Write each player’s name in the scoring box located in the bottom left corner of the game board.

  2. Spin the Number:

    • Use a paper clip and pencil or a spinner to spin a number on the number circle provided.

  3. Find the Product:

    • The player looks on the board for the product of the number spun and the multiplication focus for that game.

  4. Draw a Line:

    • The player draws a line to connect any two dots that form part of the square around the product.

  5. Close the Square:

    • When a player draws a line that closes a square, they put an X in the square and add a tally mark to their scoring box.

  6. If the Product is Not Available:

    • If the product of the spun number is no longer available on the board (it has been used up in previous turns), the player can choose where they want to draw their line.

  7. Winning the Game:

    • The game continues until all the dots have been connected. The player with the most tally marks at the end wins!
