A divisibility rule is a shorthand way of determining whether a given integer is divisible by a fixed divisor without performing the division, usually by examining its digits. Although there are divisibility tests for numbers in any radix, or base, and they are all different, this article presents rules and examples only for decimal, or base 10, numbers.

That is what your students will say once you introduce some of these fun ideas and games to the classroom. When you create a strong love and appreciation for math at an early age, you?re setting kids up for a successful future.

Between playing bingo, baking in the classroom and even bringing in a little blast from the past, you?ll have students begging to do more math

### Roll the dice.

Dice can be used in so many different ways when it comes to math. Whether you?re practicing multiplication facts or fractions, try having students create their own math problems with the roll of the dice. They can create fractions, simple multiplication problems or even word problems using dice. This can also be a fun way to put together a homework assignment: Students roll the dice during class, then take the problems home to solve.

### Play math bingo.

Bingo is always a class favorite, and you can play it with any number of students. You can buy math bingo kits online (or win your own in our ?I Love Math? Classroom Giveaway). You can also make up your own. The way it works is students have to solve math problems in order to know what number to mark off of their sheet.

### Make a recipe.

When you have to follow a recipe?especially when you have to adjust the recipe?there?s a lot of math involved in making sure you get it right. Put those skills to the test by making no-bake cookies or even slime. For more of a challenge, have students double, triple or even quadruple the recipe.

### Have a math scavenger hunt.

Get ready to be the most popular teacher at your school! Scavenger hunts are already exciting and fun. One clue leads you to another, and then another until there?s finally a prize at the end. For this scavenger hunt, make math problems the clues. So in order to move on, students have to really think about the problems and give the correct answers. Be sure to make them challenging so the reward (maybe 10 minutes of extra recess) is worth it. We suggest pulling out all your hardest math problems and even dividing up into teams for a little friendly competition.
