CONTIG by F. W. Broadbent in the May 1972 issue of The Arithmetic Teacher Contig is a game that intermediate-grade children love to play, but can be enjoyed by high school algebra students as well. I have also used the game in my computer science classes when order of operations is discussed. The game provides drill and practice in the four basic arithmetic operations: addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division, as well as opportunities for basic problem solving and order of operations. Materials The materials required are simple: Three dice, a score pad, counters or markers, and a playing board. You may print the following board and photocopy it. Then just let the students put "X"s over the numbers that are found. Click here to see the Contig playing board RULES OF THE GAME 1. Two to five players may play Contig. 2. To begin play, each player in turn rolls all three dice. The player with the smallest sum begins play. Play then progresses from left to right (or counter-clockwise).
