Why use this environment?

This domino environment can be used on an interactive whiteboard for many purposes. It is not meant as a substitute for 'real' dominoes but it will enable you and your learners to share ideas more easily as a whole group. You can build on children's knowledge of counting and patterns by setting up sequences of dominoes to continue, you could play dominoes in its traditional form, you could challenge children to arrange certain dominoes in particular ways, you could ask them to sort the dominoes into groups.

There are many ideas for using dominoes in the classroom here and more domino problems can be found on NRICH by typing 'domino' into the top-right search box or selecting 'Mathematics Tools' in the search by topic facility.
