Cubes

If permitted, you could purchase some blank dice, or larger cubes, and put various math facts, fractions, percents, etc. on each side. You can come up with a variety of directions for use.

For example:
*On fraction dice, you could give the direction that two players each roll one die. Whoever has the larger fraction wins a point.
*On the same fraction dice, you could have each player roll two dice and add/subtract/multiply them to get their score for that round.

There are SO many games you can make out of these cubes. IF you cannot buy them, you could make them out of laminated construction paper.

You could even include that you're going to differentiate by passing out leveled dice. Ex. Green dice=easier facts; Yellow dice=average difficulty; Red dice=harder/more challenging facts.
