Take Sum Risks

"Take Sum Risks" is a great way to introduce students to the practical applications of Chance.

The fundamentals of the game include the basic operations of Mathematics and it can

also be applied to multiples and place value.


The game is ideal for middle to upper primary school students, but can also be used to

review basic skills in lower secondary years.


If you want to have a look, please feel free to contact us for a preview.

We can show you the game by incorporating a display into a lesson, where

you get to see the immediate benefits with a class.

Or we can run a professional development session with staff.
