The operation of division is exercised in Remainder Island as each player competes in a race to visit each of the six hexagonal islands and in the process, to acquire the greatest amount of gold (chips).
Polyhedra dice, pawns, chips and a hexagonal-triangular shaped gameboard are used to play this strategy-chance division game. The goal is to place the greatest number of chips on the board’s six hexagonal-shaped islands. A series of rules related to zero remainders and networking pawns along strategic pathways make this both a conceptual and problem-solving game. UNDERLYING MATHEMATICS/SCIENCE: computational reasoning: involving division, identifying the divisor, dividend, quotient, and remainder, multiples of six, probability, the relationship of division to fractions, relationship of division to multiplication; logical/scientific reasoning involving observational skills, hypothesizing and experimentation, inductive and deductive reasoning skills; spatial/geometric reasoning involving topology (pathways), geometric figures and regions, directionality; and active problem solving
