100 ish mini dice in a variety of colours for less than a pound delivered!

Create for doing probability, radioactivity at GCSE, or just creating graphs at KS2 maybe even Venn and Carroll diagrams.

BULKRATE voucher for 3+ brings price to 70p each.

Other uses too I'm sure.

Be sure you understand just how tiny these are.

Not really a bargain, 100 grains of plastic are available elsewhere for under £1.00

Eh! By the same reasoning you could spray paint some sand and that would be even cheaper!

70p for kids to do experimental maths is well worth it. Ask any kid. If you don't have an interest why bother making a comment.

By the way, the rubber for your car tyres cost very little do you complain like this when you get them changed. Make sense!
#7
What material are these made from? Are they soft and malleable or are these die hard?

I totally agree!

Weird. Just this morning I was thinking, "hmmm, where can I get 100 4mm dice for under a quid?" and then this deal pops up.

Seriously, what are the odds?

That may be true, but these dice will be no good for that. You had may as well use a handful of sand.

I was only trying to help you avoid looking stupid in front of the kids.

What on earth does that mean?

Oh come on - get real - 100 MINI dice for less than a quid.

A DEAL!

BTW - what scale is the calipers showing?
#13
wow! a bargain to DIE for!!!!:-D

If only I still played Games Workshop games :-(

With these dice and the previously posted magnets your kids will soon choke to death, voted cold :roll:

Deal, heat added.

More like about FIVE mm ?!?!? :whistling:

why vote cold? that makes no sense..... your kids can choke on pretty much anything they can pick up, just watch them and who would buy 100 dice for 1 child to eat?. Please dont even vote cold unless a better reason other then a safety hazard

Best not cast them off a tall building :)

Doesn't the vernier suggest 4.75?
#22
What is the point with clogging up these forums with posts about stuff on sale at dealextreme?

Yes there are some very good deals there but why not just post up the website name and some examples.

Oh no, instead people keep sticking up loads of seperate posts, magnets, dice, bluetooth dongle etc etc.

I like 'em. God knows what I would do with them, they do seem pretty small. I guess it could be kind of fun buying a couple of hundred of these and then throw them around in large public places (I'm thinking airports, museums...Tesco's?) :)

I can understand a Maths Teacher using Die/dice to teach probabilities... but Why would a Physics Teacher need Die/dice?:?
#27
...plus any school has millions of die hanging around the place... i'm a teacher, we never worry at home when we lose one from the monopoly set!
Alternatively, if you want to lose weight, eat these rather than food for a month- it's a great 'die't! although it may make you very six...and give you spots....

That's easy- radioactive material has a half life, it takes a certain amount of time for a material to radioactively decay to half the amount. When there is a lot of material there are a lot of decays (producing harmful radiation (this is what heats the centre of the Earth)), when there is less radioactive material there are less decays.

You can simulate this by rolling the dice and taking out all of the sixes, keep these out and roll again. Each time the number of dice removed will decrease corresponding to there being a lower number of dice, thus representing the radiation level and amount of material decreasing logarithmically.

I've done this and it works brilliantly; one of those "Oh, I get it!" moments.

Wikipedia halflife for more info and examples- not the game though!

I was under the impression that the centre of the earth was hot because of the immense gravity... :?
I'm pretty sure we don't have a radioactive iron core under our feet.

I did Physics at School admittedly a long, long time ago and just don't remember Dice ever being used at all to help explain a Principle or Law .......I do vaguely remember something about the Half -Life of Radiation. Definitely remeber Log Tables. I was just wondering what Dice/Die were used for in Physics...... Thanks for the explaination.

Thats the funniest thing ive ever read on here

BillyX youre a teacher and you cant spell?! how typical. Also, that theory of why the earth's core is hot is total nonsense, again typical of the total lack of knowledge most science teachers have.
Finally, the plural of die is dice I cant believe you teachers struggle with that concept.
#35
Hey I teach reception- so I was only trained to spell 'dog', 'cat', and other three letter words. Oh, and 'strike' and 'inflation-linked payrise'. Mate I really hope you don't think I was misspelling 'forget' as 'fourget'- a sense of humour is vital in education, let's keep you away from the kids, eh?

Hey, that's partly true! The frictional and tidal heating effects aren't relevant here. So you know about the die/ dice thing- so what?

And for such a pedant I wonder why you didn't spot my mistake. 'Create for ...' should be 'Great for ...'

Don't fourget to say 4 nice things for every 1 negative thing.

BillyX, could you please remind Mascherano what goes at the start of a sentence.

cant spell?! how typical.

And if you're going to incorrectly correct someone else's spelling please use apostrophes in contractions or you'll just look foolish and we can't have that.

you embarassed yourself there. Its funny to see a teacher trying to explain something when their entire knowledge is based on some narrow minded curriculum. its also funny how teachers call themselves 'biologists' or 'physicists' as if they are real scientists. if i teach football does that make me a footballer? no it doesnt
#39
What qualifies someone as a physicist? You must know this to be able to claim the reverse.

Out of interest, how many birds must a man watch to become a birdwatcher or hills walked to become a hillwalker. Isn't it enough to have a keen interest. (I have degrees too if that matters to you.)

You mean the vernier? It's showing in millimetres there, though seems to be reading at close to 5mm.
