Teach Math with Yahtzee

Most modern tabletop and board games aren’t interested in teaching you anything. That’s where Yahtzee is different. Yahtzee’s number-based gameplay system is the perfect delivery method for teaching math. From basic math skills like matching and counting to advanced concepts such as probability, statistics, and game theory, Yahtzee is a great addition to the math teacher’s repertoire.

From the cover of the 1967 Yahtzee instruction book, a Yahtzee scholar and slogan 'The game that makes thinking fun'.

A collective groan annually cascades around the world as summer vacation nears its inevitable end. But the back-to-school season doesn’t have to lead to misery and toil. Students and teachers alike can keep the good times rolling by playing Yahtzee at school. Don’t worry, it’s not a sign of delinquency or disinterest – in fact, just the opposite. Yahtzee is a powerful tool to teach math skills in a fun and engaging way.

Math Yahtzee has a long history in supplemental learning. In fact, the original 1956 set was marketed as “the game that makes thinking fun.” The tagline was eventually replaced with snappier language but Yahtzee’s performance as a mathematics explorer remains unparalleled. As a classic numbers game, it can be used to teach math students of all ages, from preschool aged kids through to adults. Standard gameplay involves a variety of mathematical concepts that can be used to illustrate techniques like counting, adding, and other basic skills to more complex ideas like probability and statistics.

Yahtzee is one of the few games that can be truly enjoyed by players of all ages. As a rare example of a board game with a broad intergenerational fanbase, its potential to boost math skills among a large swathe of the population is likewise vast. Do your students find math not fun ? Educators can exploit Yahtzee’s popularity to reinforce an array of math skills to learners at all levels.

Incorporating Yahtzee in Math Curriculum

When using Yahtzee as a teaching aid, it is important to clearly communicate the game’s structure and its relation to mathematical concepts, especially for younger learners. Begin each lesson with a standard overview that covers the major topics in an engaging way:

  • Reinforcement :Reinforce the definition of the mathematical concept by stating, for example: "Addition is the joining of two or more numbers to get one number called the sum."
  • Explanation :Introduce Yahtzee and explain the rules of the game . Be sure to answer questions and repeat as neccesary.
  • Show & Tell :Model how to play Yahtzee. Focus on the game mechanics and recording scores on the scorecard.
  • Rolling dice :Model how to use the dice properly. Encourage small rolls that stay on the table or risk dice flying everywhere and children spending more time retrieving dice than playing the game.
  • Repitition :Reinforce the definition of the mathematical concept during gameplay and assist the students in identifying it in practice.

The idea that practice, reinforcement, and repetition are the keys to an effective teacher-learner relationship is rooted in educational research. When students practice math skills through repetition and reinforcement, they have the opportunity to internalize the concepts and make them a part of their long-term memory. This is why many math teachers emphasize the importance of consistent practice and repetition.

Yahtzee's dual nature as a game that combines both rational numbers and a fun and engaging experience is what makes it such an effective tool for teaching math. By incorporating math skills into the game, students can learn while having fun and not even realizing they are practicing math. This helps to build their confidence and motivation to learn. Studies have shown that using games in the learning process can significantly increase outcomes, including higher exam scores and better grades.

In addition to practice, repetition, and reinforcement, Yahtzee also helps to develop problem-solving skills and critical thinking. The game requires players to use their math skills to make strategic decisions, and this can help to strengthen their ability to think critically and solve problems.

Yahtzee is a game that can be used to teach a variety of mathematical topics. As a game that involves rolling dice, adding and subtracting numbers, and making strategic decisions, it can be adapted to cover many different math concepts. The flexibility of Yahtzee makes it an excellent tool for teachers and educators looking to engage students in learning math. By incorporating mathematical concepts into a fun and engaging game, students can learn in a way that is enjoyable and memorable. This can help to build their confidence and motivation to continue learning math in the future.

Red Die - One


The basis of mathematical understanding is an ability to count numbers in sequence. Since Yahtzee is built upon a foundation of counting numbers, they are a variety of ways to reinforce the skill through game play.

The youngest math learners can practice counting using the pips on a die. Have them roll a single die and count the dots to determine the number. Increase the number of dice as needed. Gradually move up to skip counting, or counting by intervals other than one, as a more advanced technique. Calculating the Upper Section Bonus is a natural way to introduce the concept. Count by threes, for example, to figure the possible scoring opportunities in that category: 3, 6, 9, 12, 15.

Red Die - Two


One of the most basic math skills that can be taught with Yahtzee is the ability to substitize , or instantly recognize how many objects are in a small set. Dice provide a perfect example of subitizing in action; when you roll a die and you see four dots on top, you immediately recognize it as representing a quantity of four. You don't need to count each dot on the die face to figure it out – it’s obvious at a glance.

Subitizing allows for rapid, accurate, and confident judgments of numbers when performed for a small number of items. But once there are more than four items to count, judgments are made with decreasing accuracy and confidence. In addition, response times rise in a dramatic fashion, with an extra 250–350 milliseconds needed for each additional item within the display beyond about four. A similar pattern of reaction times is found in young children, although with steeper slopes for both the subitizing range and the enumeration range.

A series of black dots inside a circle. A standard way of testing subitizing speeds.

In the 1990s, babies three weeks old were shown to differentiate between one to three objects, that is, to subitize. By the age of seven that ability increases to between four and seven objects. But subitization is also used to help organize very large numbers. One of the most basic applications is in digit grouping in large numbers, which allow one to tell the size at a glance, rather than having to count. For example, writing one million as 1,000,000 instead of 1000000 acts to divide the number into smaller units, making it much easier to read quickly.

Young children will benefit most from subitizing exercises. At this age, rolling an entire game of Yahtzee is not required – you just want to get the kids familiarized with dice mechanics and identifying small number sets. Practice makes perfect – keep them rolling dice and shouting out numbers to flex their subitization muscles. Use a simple scorecard for students to record their numbers.

Subitizing allows students to move away from counting by ones to seeing numbers as chunks and is a vital skill to master in a child’s early mathematics development. The pips on dice are a great example of an organized or structured arrangement. Kindergarten and 1st graders will benefit from daily Yahtzee instruction all year long.

Red Die - Three


As a child is mastering subitizing small numbers, new skills can be introduced. Simple number recognition is reinforced through matching. Have the players roll a die and identify the number as quickly as they can. They then roll a second die and determine if they have a match. Scale up with more dice and to make matches with specific scoring combinations, like the Full House.

 Basic Mathematical Operations

The four basic math operations - addition , subtraction , multiplication , and division - form the backbone of higher algebraic studies and are integral to understanding Yahtzee.

The Upper Section of a 1956 Yahtzee scorecard.

Yahtzee provides nearly endless opportunities for students to practice addition. Its game mechanics and scoring system require it. The Upper Section is a great place to get started since players need to record a sum on their scorecards. And then those sums are themselves summed to compute the Upper Section Total. Three-of-a-Kind, Four-of-a-Kind, and Chance are the Lower Section opportunities to practice adding numbers. And of course the ultimate addition task awaits players at the end of the game when they must tabulate their total scores.


The challenge of securing the Upper Section Bonus is a chance to practice subtracting one number from another. The goal in the Upper Section is to score at least 63 points, which will unlock a 35-point bonus. A careful player will frequently subtract their running total from the 63-point target, ensuring that they will remain on track for the bonus.


Although it can be scored with any combination of numbers that equal at least 63 points, the Upper Section Bonus averages out to three of each number, one through six. Players can use multiplication to figure their totals. Instead of adding three plus three plus three, for example, encourage students to work more efficiently by calculating the product instead. This can be a helpful way to reinforce multiplication tables through a Yahtzee game.

Division is the rarest of the basic math operations to be called upon during a game of Yahtzee. This may be a result of the ideals of unity and compassion that are inherent to the game. Yahtzee is a uniter, not a divider. Nevertheless, division can prove to be a useful tool in the Yahtzee enthusiast’s mathematical toolkit. While it is seldom required during gameplay, calculating quotients is extremely useful to the study of Yahtzee on a deeper level. More advanced math techniques like probability and statistics use division to devise data-driven tools that can improve a player’s Yahtzee strategy.

Probability is a mathematical conceit of how likely something is to happen. The study of this branch of mathematics is very useful in a numbers game like Yahtzee. Players who compare their own scoring tenancies with those of other players can identify weaknesses in their games and develop new tactics. Yahtzee odds are a key source of a sound strategy but players should be encouraged to explore a variety of styles as they develop a new gameplan.

Unsurprisingly for a game with a scoring category called ‘Chance’, a Yahtzee game packs a plethora of probability possibilities. But most players get excited by the namesake, the Yahtzee itself. Learning to calculate the likelihood of getting a Yahtzee in a single roll is an engaging way to introduce students to the power of probability. Bowling Green State University is one institution that uses Yahtzee odds in introductory statistics courses:

Probability of a Yahtzee

Each die has six possibilities and so by applying the multiplication rule, the total number of outcomes in the roll of five dice is:

6 × 6 × 6 × 6 × 6 = 7776

Since all of the outcomes are equally likely, we assign a probability of 1/7776 to each outcome.

We can represent the Yahtzee roll as the outcome:

x, x, x, x, x

where x denotes an arbitrary roll of one die. There are six possible choices for x, and so the number of possible Yahtzees is 6.

Since each outcome has probability 1/7776, the probability of a Yahtzee is:

Prob(Yahtzee) = 6/7776 or 0.077%


Statistics is the study of the collection, organization, analysis, interpretation, and presentation of data. A game of Yahtzee provides a treasure trove of juicy data just waiting to be probed and analyzed. Game data like the frequency of scoring a Large Straight or average Chance score will shed light on a player’s strategy and priorities. Use these insights to teach students about their statistical underpinnings and help to increase high scores all at once.

Statistics touches on all aspects of data. Once the hard work of collection and analysis is complete, seeing the results presented visually provides a satisfying sense of accomplishment. A fun and educational way to display Yahtzee data is with dice graphing.

Dice Graphing

As we have seen, all of the major mathematical concepts found in Yahtzee can be explored in the Upper Section of the official scorecard . Take it a step further and have students practice graphing using the upstairs alone. Rather than playing with the whole Yahtzee score sheet, simply use the Upper Section of the game card. Have each player roll one time and mark how many of each die they roll. Then create a graph to chart the frequency of numbers in players’ rolls.

Yahtzee is Math

Yahtzee is a great way to teach math for a variety reasons:

  • It uses probability and statistics: Yahtzee involves rolling dice and calculating the probability of certain combinations. This can help to teach basic concepts of probability and statistics.
  • It encourages strategic thinking: Yahtzee requires players to think strategically about which combinations to aim for and how to score the most points. This can help to develop problem-solving and critical thinking skills.
  • It involves mental math: Yahtzee requires players to add and subtract numbers, which can help to develop mental math skills.
  • It can be adapted to different math concepts: Yahtzee can be adapted to teach a variety of math concepts such as fractions, decimals, and percentages.
  • It is a fun and engaging way to learn: Yahtzee is a game that is enjoyable to play, which can make learning math concepts more engaging and less intimidating for students.
  • It can be used across different grade levels: Yahtzee can be used to teach math concepts for students of different grade levels, from elementary school to high school.
  • It is available in a wide variety of electronic forms like mobile phone apps and computer games, simplifying the introduction of Yahtzee into an online learning curriculum.

An electronic calculator may be tempting when tallying the scorecard, but doing daily mental calculations can help keep our minds sharp as we age. Digital math assistance should be limited to double-checking final scores or rooting out those who dare to cheat at Yahtzee . When basic math ability starts to slip, that’s when mistakes happen. Take care to maintain razor sharp addition skills or risk faux pas-ing your way into social oblivion with a miscalculated Chance score.

To enjoy Yahtzee is to enjoy – or at least tolerate – math. Not everyone is going to need advanced calculus in their lives, but a solid comprehension of the fundamental math skills found in Yahtzee is a critical component of basic education.

Teachers and math tutors should feel encouraged to use Yahtzee to teach math. Either standard rules or a Yahtzee math game will provide results for both at-school and home-schooled kids. And thanks to a continuing surge in electronic and online Yahtzee games even distance learning students can participate. There are even more great resources online to find other ways to incorporate dice into learning math. For example, Kate’s Homeschool Math Help shares tips for simplified Yahtzee games to play with young pupils:

Simple Math Yahtzee Scorecards

Simple Math Yahtzee Scorecards

How to Play

  • Number Yahtzee : Roll one die when it’s your turn. Cross off the number that matches the die.
  • Addition Yahtzee : Roll two dice when it’s your turn. Cross off the number that matches the sum of the two dice.
  • Multiplication Yahtzee : Roll two dice when it’s your turn. Cross off the number that matches the product of the two dice.

Often, the perception of mathematics as difficult and daunting creates a barrier for young learners. This societal bias can form a self-fulfilling prophecy, causing students to approach math with apprehension, and consequently impede their learning journey. However, incorporating engaging games like Yahtzee into the learning process can fundamentally transform these negative associations. Yahtzee not only makes math enjoyable but also simplifies complex mathematical concepts, making them more approachable for students. Just as in Yahtzee and life, an unbiased and open-minded approach towards math can pave the way for success and happiness. Remember, while some may find math challenging, others thrive in numerical environments. Thus, let's debunk the myth - math isn't always hard; sometimes, it's simply about finding the right approach to learning it. Yahtzee is math made fun !

Playing math games in the classroom has emerged as a way to make math lessons or math reviews more engaging, especially for students who might find math problems daunting to solve.

Just like how there are many helpful math websites , there are also online and offline math activities suited for this job. Classroom math games can act as customizable entry and exit tickets, as well as mid-class activities. You can easily add them into your lesson plans and use them for math reviews.

If you’re a 1st to 8th grade math teacher, here are 27 classroom math games for kids you can play with and without computers:

Grade level: 1st - 8th Grade

Best for: Enhancing math skills through RPG-style play, adaptable to individual student levels.

Sign up for Prodigy Math — a standards-aligned math game — to engage your class as you reinforce lesson content and essential skills — at home or at school .

Free for schools and teachers, it borrows elements from role-playing games (RPGs), as players compete in math duels against in-game characters. To win, they must answer sets of math problems.

As a teacher, you can customize these questions to supplement class material. The game also uses adaptive learning and differentiated instruction principles to adjust content, addressing each student’s trouble spots.

Here’s an example of the math game in action. Let’s say you’ve just introduced your class to a math concept, like fractions at the 2nd grade level. Once you’ve set up an assignment for the whole class, you can ask your students to log in to Prodigy and start playing, either on their own or in small groups. As they have fun playing Prodigy Math, they’ll answer questions tailored to the assignment and their ability.

You’ll also have access to your teacher dashboard which gives you free reports and data on every students’ progress, helping you spot and address learning gaps in just a few clicks!

As a teacher, I love how interactive and fun Prodigy is! The questions are great for all learners and adjusts to their level of learning. The standards and organization inside the game is so impressive and easy to use. I would recommend it to any child, teacher or parent.

Grade level: 3rd - 8th Grades

Best for: Practicing quick recall of math facts in a group setting.

Play Around the Block as a minds-on activity, using only a ball to practice almost any math skill. First, put together a list of questions related to a skill. Second, have students stand in a circle. Finally, give one student the ball and read aloud a question from your list.

Students must pass the ball clockwise around the circle, and the one who started with it must answer the question before receiving it again.  If the student incorrectly answers, you can pass the ball to a classmate for the next question. If the student correctly answers, he or she chooses the next contestant.

Best for: Team-based competitive practice of math problems with varying difficulty.

Divide your class into two teams to play math baseball — another activity that gives you full control over the questions that students answer. One team will start at bat, scoring runs by choosing questions worth one, two or three bases.

You’ll “pitch” the questions, which range in difficulty depending on how many bases they’re worth. If the at-bat team answers incorrectly, the defending team can respond correctly to earn an out. After three outs, switch sides. Play until one team hits 10 runs.

Best for: Physical activity combined with mental math challenges.

Give students a chance to move around class by playing Bouncing Sums, building mental math muscles . To prepare, use labels and a marker to put integers, decimals or fractions on a beach ball.

Hand the ball to one student, who will read aloud the label touching one of his or her thumbs. That student tosses the ball to a classmate, and so on. Each student must read the number on his or her label, adding it to — or multiplying it with — the sum or product which the previous student stated.

The challenge? Reach the highest number possible within a time limit.

Grade level: 2nd - 5th Grades

Best for: Fast-paced, team-based drill on math fact fluency.

Keep combining math with physical activity in this fast-paced fact fluency drill. Divide students into teams at the back of the class, posting a grid sheet at the front for each group. One student from each team will run to the sheet, writing an answer in the appropriate grid.

To practice multiplication, for example, a student would have to write 12 in the grid where the third row and fourth column meet. The student returns to his or her team after answering, allowing a group member to run to the sheet. The group member can fill another grid or, if needed, correct a previous answer.

This process repeats itself until a team wins by correctly filling its sheet.

Grade level: 3rd - 6th Grades

Best for: Fun and engaging practice of multiplication tables.

Make fact fluency drills engaging by playing this version of bingo. First, create bingo cards that contain answers to different multiplication tables. Second, hand them out to students and make sure they have a separate sheet for calculations. Finally, instead of calling numbers, state equations such as 8 × 7. After determining the product is 56, they can check off the number if it’s on their cards.

Grade level: 1st - 5th Grades

Best for: Independent exploration of math concepts through online games and puzzles.

Engage elementary school students by pointing them towards games and puzzles on the Math Is Fun website. Ideal as a learning station or for classes with one-to-one device use, the games range from challenging math classics — such as Sudoku — to counting exercises for younger students. The latter category uses concise sentences and cartoon characters, making content easier for these students to process.

no image

Grade level: 2nd - 6th Grades

Best for: Strategic thinking and arithmetic skills in a competitive setting.

Play a few rounds of 101 and Out as a fun way to end math class. As the name implies, the goal is to score as close to 101 points as possible without going over. You need to divide your class in half, giving each group a die along with paper and a pencil.

Groups take turns rolling the dice, strategizing to count the number at face value or multiply it by 10. For example, students who roll a six can keep that number or turn it into 60. This game quickly grows competitive, boosting the excitement level in your math class.

Grade level: 3rd - 5th Grades

Best for: Understanding and estimating measurements in a collaborative activity.

Run this quick game to improve perception and understanding of measurement. Grouping students in small teams, give them meter sticks. They then look around the room for two to four items they think add up to one meter long.

In a few minutes, the groups measure the items and record how close their estimations were. Want more of a challenge? Give them a centimeter-mark instead of a meter, asking them to convert results to micrometers, millimeters and more.

no image

Best for: Quick thinking and problem-solving in pairs.

Bring out your class’s competitive side. Just be sure to group students at a similar skill level. Back-to-Back involves a pair of classmates standing beside the blackboard with chalk in hand, facing away from one another.

A third student says “numbers up,” requiring each competitor to write a number on the board within a specified range. The third student then says the sum or product of the two numbers. Using this information, a competitor wins by stating the other’s number first.

Grade level: 1st - 8th Grades

Best for: Reinforcing various math skills in a familiar game format.

Pair students to compete against one another while practicing different math skills in this take on tic-tac-toe.

Prepare by dividing a sheet into squares — three vertical by three horizontal. Don’t leave them blank. Instead, fill the boxes with questions that test different abilities. The first one to link three Xs or Os — by correctly answering questions — wins.

You can use this game as a learning station , refreshing prerequisite skills in preparation for new content. Alternatively, you can try this out a whole class by putting the squares on your whiteboard and splitting the room into the two competing teams.

P.S. Tic-tac-toe can easily be modified to suit your class and lesson plans, check this version out below:

Grade level: 6th Grade and Up

Best for: High school students exploring real-world math applications in different careers.

Visit Get the Math with your students to solve engaging challenges, each related to using math in different careers and real-world situations. It's primarily aimed at high school students or those finishing middle school.

The website contains videos with young professionals who explain how they use math in their fields, such as fashion design and video game development. You can assign challenges to your class after watching, which involve playing games.

For example, one is based on using materials with different price-points and measurements to design a shirt for less than $35.

13. Simon Says: Geometry

Grade level: 2nd - 3rd Grades

Best for: Kinesthetic learners to understand basic geometry through physical activity.

Appeal to kinesthetic learners by playing this version of Simon Says and, in the process, improve their understanding of basic geometry.

As Simon, all your commands should require students to illustrate angles and shapes by moving their arms. For example, ask them to make angles of varying degrees as well as parallel and perpendicular lines. Continuously speed up your commands — and change if they come from Simon or not — until only one student remains and is the winner.

no image

Grade level: 4th - 8th Grades

Best for: Interactive online lessons and exercises for diverse learners.

Try Math Goodies for engaging, interactive tasks and lessons online. The free website appeals to diverse learners by featuring puzzles, articles and word problems.

Playing through the site’s content, students can — for instance — read an example-filled walkthrough about how to order decimals. They can then test their skills by completing exercises and challenges.You can use the website to create custom worksheets, too. Fun for the class, useful for the teacher.

Best for: Encouraging teamwork and collaboration in solving math problems.

Add a game-like spin to content reviews by playing Initials. Hand out a unique sheet to each student with problems aligned to a common skill or topic. Instead of focusing on their own sheets, students walk around the room to solve questions on their classmates’.

But there’s catch. A student can only complete one question per sheet, signing his or her initials beside the answer. Working together to reach an individual yet joint goal, students should build trust and teamwork .

Best for: Engaging the whole class in a quick and inclusive math activity.

Play Stand Up, Sit Down as a minds-on activity, adjusting the difficulty according to student age and skill level. The principle of the game is straightforward: You pick a number, and students must stand if the answer to an equation you read aloud matches that number. If it isn’t, they remain seated in a circle. You can modify requirements for standing as needed.

For example, you can tell students to stand if the answer is:

  • Greater than 10
  • An even number
  • A multiple of three

You can also alternate from addition to subtraction, and from multiplication to division.

Grade level: 2nd - 8th Grades

Best for: Developing mental math skills in a simple, adaptable group game.

Gather your class in a circle to play 100s as a quick warm up before your lesson. You’ll give students a set of numbers to choose from — such as multiples of five to a maximum of 20 — as they take turns adding out loud in a clockwise direction. The student who says or passes 100 is out. You’ll start again, until only one participant is left.

Although the game is simple, you can change how it’s played to suit the skills of your students. For example, they may have to multiply by fours instead of adding by fives.

no image

Best for: Adapting a classic card game to practice arithmetic operations.

Give students a mathematical twist on a traditional card game by playing this version of War . To start, pair students together and give them each a deck of cards. Then, assign the following values:

  • Two to 10 — Face value

The rules of the game will depend on the grade you teach and the skills you’re building. For example, students in lower grades will play two cards, subtracting the lower number from the higher. Students in higher grades can multiply the numbers, designating a certain suit as having negative integers. Whoever has the highest hand wins all four cards.

no image

Grade level: 1st Grade and Up

Best for: Interactive digital learning across various math topics and grade levels.

Have students visit the online National Library of Virtual Manipulatives to access activities that involve digital math manipulatives such as coins and blocks. Created by Utah State University, the online library’s goal is to engage students. It does so by giving teachers activities to provide, as there are manipulation tasks targeted to students at every grade level, including middle school.

For example, a 6th grade geometry activity involves using geo-boards to illustrate area, perimeter and rational number concepts. Ideal for classes with one-to-one device use, you can also use the website as its own learning station.

Grade level: 3rd to 8th Grades

Best for: A game show-style review of math skills, ideal for competitive learners.

Transform this famous game show to focus on your latest skill or unit, preparing students for a quiz or test. Setup involves attaching pockets to a bristol board, dividing them into columns and rows. Each column should focus on a specific topic, whereas each row should have a point value -- 200, 400, 600, 800 and 1,000.

A team can ask for a question from any pocket, but other teams can answer first by solving the problem and raising their hands. Once the class answers all questions, the team with highest point total claims the prize you provide. But each student wins in terms of engagement and practicing peer support . This is a great game for competitive students who might not engage with traditional worksheets.

Grade level: 1st to 8th Grades

Best for: Simple, adaptable dice games suitable for a range of math skills.

Dice games are an easy and affordable option for making math lessons more engaging. In this dice game, students can work in pairs or small groups. They will each take turns to roll two dice and carry out a math operation based on the numbers they get.

You can easily scale the difficulty up by grade level. For example, for first grade students, you could ask them to roll two dice and add both of them together. For higher grade levels, you might ask them to multiply or roll up to 4 dice.

Grade level: 1st to 3rd Grades

Best for: Practicing place value concepts in an engaging, hands-on way.

This is another dice game that helps make learning math concepts more engaging, in this case, place value. In this game, students roll two dice. They must then add up all the numbers they get and write then numbers down in a place value chart. Here’s a printable place value chart to help!

To make this more challenging, you can ask your students to roll an extra dice or ask them to round their number to the nearest ten.

Best for: Building number sense and understanding number lines through group collaboration.

If your students are getting used to working with number lines, this active and engaging game is a great way to get them on their feet. Try it out as a math review or warm-up activity!

Give each of your students a card or piece of paper with a different number on it. As a group, they have 5 minutes to order themselves in a line. If your class needs extra help, you can set two students to be the highest and lowest number in the set. This game encourages students to communicate clearly, explain their reasoning and build their number sense.

You can make this math activity more challenging by introducing negative numbers, selecting a wider range of numbers or giving them a math operation students must solve to know their number.

Grade Level: 3rd - 6th Grades

Best for: Encouraging physical activity while reinforcing quick math problem-solving skills.

Boat activities – Math manipulatives in science

This post may contain affiliate links. Please see our full Disclosure Policy for details.


Boat activities use math manipulatives like pattern blocks. It teaches kids about number patterns using imagination. It also introduces fun science concepts through play. This weekend, our boys made ocean scenes utilizing the theme ‘Row, row, row your boat’.

They each have their own ideas and therefore, we have two creative ocean crafts for kids to share. Preschool activities using wooden puzzles is a great way to involve children in exploring math and science. Early education about ocean and sea through boat activities is so much fun.

Math manipulatives

Math manipulatives is a form of math education. It involves objects that are designed to encourage the learner to involve in creating things using mathematical concepts. Hence, the name manipulatives. This hands-on experience trains a child’s brain to bring ideas to life.

How boat activities teach science?

The two boat manipulatives we are sharing today introduces early science concepts to preschoolers. A child learns about a sailboat sailing on a sunny day and a cruise ship arriving/ departing from the island. This can be a conversation starter to grow those little minds. For example:

  • (1) It introduces the difference between the sailboat and a ship.
  • (2) A sailboat sails on a sunny day while cruise is indifferent.
  • (3) Cruise goes on longer journeys and boats are for smaller ones.
  • (4) Boat can fit a fewer people but ship can fit a lot more.

and so on…

How to make a boat?


Here’s a cute little boat made with geometric pattern blocks. Use green squares as base, and a combination of shapes to make the triangular sail on the boat. A fun boat activity that involves mind work. Talk about other ways to make a triangle with your child.

The diamond shapes are used to create ocean water and quadrilaterals complete the sun.

How to make a ship?


This boat is a simple tangram inspired ship. Create using a combination of patterns. One can use the concept and design a much larger cruise ship which resembles the real ones as well. I love the addition of smoke on top of the chimney in this one. Great detailing!

The boat is sailing to the beach island. However, one can imagine it departing the island as well. The island is represented by triangular base and a coconut tree. The coconut tree representation has in itself endless possibilities. Another fun idea would be to have semi-circle curves sprouting from the branch to represent the coconut tree.

We also have a short video of the boys at work. Check it out:

Mathematics of Ships at Sea

This ship is the “Blue Marlin”, one of the most amazing vessels to ever to sail the seas.

The Marlin can carry an incredible 75,000 tonnes.

It reaches a top speed of a sedate 13 knots, powered by a gigantic 17,000 horse power diesel engines, with a crew of 24.

(Note 13 Knots = 13 x 1.852 = 24 km / hr).

Steering it is said to be like controlling a floating office block.

The barges pictured above – which weigh a total of 60,000 tonnes – were exported from Korea to be completed in Rotterdam.

No crane in the world is big enough to lift these types of cargoes onto the Marlin’s deck, and an ingenious method is used to load the cargo.

The deck is submersible and can disappear under 13 metres of water when the Marlin’s ballast tanks are pumped full of water.

Boats, oil rigs and ships can then be floated on before the deck is raised again by emptying the ballast tanks.

There is a great article about the Blue Marlin at the following link:

Click here for Daily Mail Blue Marlin Newspaper Article

The following three minute video shows a giant oil rig that was built in Korea being loaded onto the Blue Marlin for transport to the USA.

Obviously there is some very exact mathematics involved here, because ships are designed via Archimedes Mathematical Principle to float rather than sink!


In this lesson we look at some of the Mathematics of Ships.

This includes Archimedes Floating Principle, as well as the Geometry of Hulls and Stabilisers.

We also look at Ship Stability, the Plimsoll Line, and the Mathematics of Loading Ships with Cargo.

How Ships Float

Today’s colossal size cruise ships, such as the “Oasis of the Seas” and the “Allure of the Seas”, remain afloat thanks to buoyancy and displacement.

Ships are designed to displace the amount of water equivalent to their own mass.

The ocean meanwhile pushes up and keeps the ship afloat, or buoyant.

In other words, the pressure of the water pushing up on the bottom (or hull) of a cruise ship counteracts the downward force of the vessel’s gravity, thereby making it float on the water’s surface.

(Basically Positive and Negative Integer values cancelling themselves out to zero).

This basic idea is often referred to as “Archimedes’ Principle”.

According to this principle, an item floats when it displaces more than its own weight of the liquid that it’s immersed in.

The surrounding fluid pushes back with a force equal to that of the amount displaced, so that the two opposing forces are equal and the object floats.

A Ship will float as long as it weighs less than the volume of water that its hull displaces.

The following one minute video explains Archimedes Principle

Tall Cruise Ships

However, there are some concerns about cruise liners becoming too tall.

In the past, there was a reasonable and safe ratio between a vessel’s draft (below the waterline) and air draft (above the waterline).

These days cruise liners seem to be getting designed primarily as multi-storey Hotels, and secondly as actual ships.

These cruise ships have lost the traditional proportions between what’s below and above the waterline, making the vessels dependent on stabilizers not only to battle through rough weather, but also to stay upright with only slight to moderate breezes.

“Stablisers” are discussed in the next section.

The following link is to an article about ships getting too top heavy and too tall.

Click here for Cruise Liners Article

The following 46 minute documentarty viceo is about the world’s largest cruise shipe “The Oasis of the Seas”.

Ship Stabilisers

The purpose of stabilizers is to reduce the roll (i.e., the sideways motion) of a ship.

Today, all modern cruise ships have stabilizers. Most ships have two stabilizers, one on each side of the ship. Larger ships like Cunard Line’s Queen Mary 2 and Royal Caribbean’s Voyager, Freedom and Oasis class ships, have four stabilizers, two on each side.

The stabilizers are shaped like airplane wings and extend out from the side of the hull in a perpendicular fashion when in use. They can pivot up and down like the ailerons on an airplane’s wings. Consequently, as the water flows over a stabilizer it can be turned upwards or downwards to exert dive or lift.

When a sensor detects that a wave is pushing the ship one way, the ship’s systems automatically pivot the stabilizers so as to exert pressure in the opposite direction. Captain William Wright of Royal Caribbean reports: “they eliminate about 85% of the roll of the vessel.”

When the ship is in port or when the seas are calm, the stabilizers can be folded back hydraulically into compartments along the side of the hull. Stabilizers can be deployed independently and so the ship’s officers have the option of deploying the stabilizers on one side of the ship or on both sides to suit the sea condition.

Stabilizers do create some drag and thus can in theory reduce speed and fuel efficiency. However, any such loss has to be balanced against the savings in speed and fuel efficiency resulting from reducing the ship’s motion.

The following diagram shows how the lift works for various stabiliser positions.

Sea Sickness

The purpose of cruise ship stabilizers is to reduce the side to side rocking motion of the ship.

They help a ship move more smoothly, which cuts down the chance of seasickness for passengers.

When there is a great deal of movement, it can cause a discrepancy between what a person sees and what her inner ear senses. This is what causes seasickness. The smoother the ride, the less chance for this to happen.

Stabilising Pool Tables

How do pool tables stay level on cruise ships?

Ships, and even some large yachts, have pool tables that are kept level when the ship has a slight roll by specially made gimbals.

These keep the pool table from rolling with the ship or yacht in mild conditions.

This makes the pool table self-levelling.

The pool table rests on gimbals and not just table feet on a floor or deck.

Gimbals are also often used on the stoves and cooking tops on ships and yachts.

A Gimbal consists of three concentric rings – the following picture shows what a basic pool table gimbal looks like:

The following web page has a video of a pool table that uses gyroscopes and computers to create perfectly accurate self levelling.

Swimming Pools on Ships

What about swimming pools on ships ?

How do they endure stormy weather where the ship rolls side to side ?

Quite simple really – They have a Pool inside a Pool as shown in the following YouTube clip

However for passenger safety, they usually close the pool during storms on ships.

Geometry of Ship Hulls

(Click to Enlarge the above Image on a new Screen)

A ship’s hull is the body of the ship, which sits below the main deck.

Through years of trial and error engineers have found that making the hull rounded, wide and deep, helps disperse the weight of the ship across the body of the ship.

Large cruise ship hulls are shaped like a squarish shaped letter “U”

This design allows water to flow away from the vessel, dissipates drag, and facilitates a smooth ride.

Hulls Inside Hulls

In addition to providing passengers with a fluid ride, the hull helps protect a cruise ship so that it doesn’t sink.

Icebergs, reefs, sandbars, and other large, sharp objects can rip apart a ship’s outer layers.

To prevent a major catastrophe shipbuilders typically use extra-strength steel and insert double hulls, or a hull inside a hull, as an extra precaution.

Mega cruise ships also stay afloat thanks to bulkheads.

These vertical watertight dividers are installed throughout the interior of the hull and help keep damaged ships afloat by containing incoming water into compartments.

By containing the gushing water, the ship should not flood and sink.

Bulbous Bow

Most large ships have a bulb like protrusion under the water line which pushes out a bow wave to partially cancel the waves hitting the bow and provide “cutting through” ability.

However, recent design changes to save fuel consumption costs on large oil tankers has actually changed the traditional ship hull shape, and totally removed the Bulbous Bow.

The following video explains that the designers tried out over 40,000 different hull designs to come up with the final new design.

Prior to the use of computer modelling, it would have been impossible to manuallu do the necessary calculations for 40,000 different designs without it taking years and years of work!

Ballast Water

Mathematically, there is no real limit to how big a ship can be, as long as it fits through the waterways it sails, or the harbors it enters.

The “Carnival Destiny”, for example, is too large to fit through the Panama Canal.

Of course, the larger a ship gets, the more passengers and cargo it can carry.

This additional weight does not put the ship in danger of sinking.

The extra weight pushes the ship deeper into the water, which displaces more water and increases the buoyant force.

Balast tanks are filled in order to add weight to the ship once cargo has been discharged, and improve its stability.

When a ship is sailing with only Ballast Water, and no cargo or passengers, it is called a “Light Ship”; as in it is light in terms of weight.

In some extreme conditions, ballast water may be introduced to dedicated cargo spaces in order to add extra weight during heavy weather or to pass under low bridges.

Effect of Ballast Water

Most of the time, extra weight actually helps a ship remain stable.

The weight gives the ship a lower center of gravity – the point around which the weight of an object is concentrated.

This means the pull of gravity is greater near the base than the top, so the ship is less likely to topple over.

To stabilize a ship, shipbuilders place the vessel’s heaviest machinery and equipment, like the engines and fuel, at the lowest level, below the waterline.

As the ship’s load lightens, from using up fuel, for example, the ship takes in ocean water for ballast, or added stability.

But the water needs to be in the right place on the ship.

Too much water in the wrong place can make a ship sink.

Water entering a ship’s lowest level can be disastrous; especially if the water fills up only one end of the ship. That’s what happened in the sinking of the Titanic in 1912.

The Normandie, was an ocean liner built in the early 1900s.

While the ship was docked in New York Harbor in 1942, a fire broke out and Firefighters sprayed so much water on the ship’s top deck that the ship became top-heavy.

The Normandie rolled over and sank, right at the dock.

The Safe Loading Level

Ships have a red bottom painted onto them, and when a ship is sailing without cargo, the water level will be at the top of this red line boundary along the length of the ship.

A ship can be sailing out of the water partially exposing the red bottom without any risk of sinking, but might be less stable with more side to side roll occuring in big seas.

It is important to realise that not all water weighs the same, and this effects buoyancy.

Freshwater is less dense than sea water, and so a ship will sink down lower in the water, when it sails into a freshwater port.

So when loading in a fresh water port, especially in the tropics (warm water is less dense than cold water), the ship will be lower in the water, (but will not sink).

Then when it sails out into tropical sea water it will rise up higher out of the water, because sea water is more dense (heavier than fresh).

Ships also rise up out of the water as they consume fuel, and their fuel weight consequently decreases.

The safe loadng level in a Port involves making use of markings on the ship’s hull which are called “The Plimsoll Line”.

The Plimsoll Line

The Plimsoll Line was originally a long horizontal line painted on the side of merchant ships.

When a ship was loaded, the water level was not supposed to go above the line.

However, the water could reach different parts of the line as its temperature and saltiness varied with season and location.

The basic symbol, of a circle with a horizontal line passing through its centre, is now recognised worldwide.

The Oxford Companion to Ships and the Sea defines the Plimsoll Line as:

A mark painted on the sides of British merchant ships which indicates the draught levels to which a ship may be loaded with cargo for varying conditions of season and location. The Plimsoll Mark shows six loading levels, those which may be used in tropical fresh water; fresh water; tropical sea water; summer, sea water; winter, sea water; and winter, North Atlantic, for vessels under 100 metres (330 ft) in length.

The maximum load capacity of a ship is determined by loading the ship up so that the Plimsoll Line styas just above the water.

Sinking is the most dramatic form of overloading. Before the ship sinks, it will sit so low in the water that even the smallest wave will wash over its deck, flooding the ship and possibly causing it to sink. To avoid this, ships are loaded so that their decks are well above any wave the ship is likely to encounter.

This safe height is identified by the Plimsoll line. The Plimsoll line usually is marked by a color change on the hull that differentiates the portion that is meant to be underwater from the portion that is meant to remain above the water. An empty ship floats high in the water. As cargo is loaded, the ship sits lower. Eventually only the portion that is supposed to remain above the water can be seen. Most prudent owners will not load cargo beyond this maximum.

The original “Plimsoll Mark” was a circle with a horizontal line through it to show the maximum draft of a ship. Additional marks have been added over the years, allowing for different water densities and expected sea conditions.

Letters may also appear to the sides of the mark indicating the classification society that has surveyed the vessel’s load line. The initials used include AB for the American Bureau of Shipping, LR for Lloyd’s Register, GL for Germanischer Lloyd, BV for Bureau Veritas, IR for the Indian Register of Shipping, RI for the Registro Italiano Navale, NK for Nippon Kaiji Kyokai, and NV for Det Norske Veritas. These letters should be approximately 115 millimetres in height and 75 millimetres in width.[7] The Load Line Length is referred to during and following load line calculations.

The letters on the load line marks have the following meanings: TF – Tropical Fresh Water F – Fresh Water T – Tropical Seawater S – Summer Temperate Seawater W – Winter Temperate Seawater WNA – Winter North Atlantic

The following five minute YouTube video which explains the Plimsoll line markings including summer winter tropical etc.

It also covers the the 1/48th of Draft Rule for Winter and Summer Markings.

Fresh water is considered to have a density of 1000 kg/m³ and sea water 1025 kg/m³.

Fresh water marks make allowance for the fact that the ship will float deeper in fresh water than salt water. A ship loaded to her Fresh Water mark in fresh water will float at her Summer Mark once she has passed into sea water. Similarly if loaded to her Tropical Fresh water mark she will float at her Tropical Mark once she passes into sea water.

The Summer load line is the primary load line and it is from this mark that all other marks are derived. The position of the summer load line is calculated from the Load Line Rules and depends on many factors such as length of ship, type of ship, type and number of superstructures, amount of sheer, bow height and so on. The horizontal line through the circle of the Plimsoll mark is at the same level as the summer load line.

The Winter load line is one forty-eighth of the summer load draft below the summer load line.

The Tropical load line is one forty-eighth of the summer load draft above the summer load line.

The Winter North Atlantic load line is used by vessels not exceeding 100 metres in length when in certain areas of the North Atlantic Ocean during the winter period. When assigned it is 50 millimetres below the winter mark.[8]

The calculation of the Fresh Water load line is quite complicated.

The Fresh Water load line is an amount equal to \tfrac{\triangle}{4T} centimetres above the summer load line where \triangle is the displacement in metric tonnes at the summer load draft and T is the metric tonnes per centimetre immersion at that draft. In any case where \triangle cannot be ascertained the fresh water load line is at the same level as the tropical load line. The position of the Tropical Fresh load line relative to the tropical load line is found in the same way as the fresh water load line is to the summer load line.

Magic Johnson Kicks Off Annual Star-Studded Couples Yacht Trip Through Europe

Nobody does a couples trip like NBA Hall of Famer Magic Johnson. Every year, Johnson and his wife Cookie host a trip around Europe via yacht with some of their favorite people, many of whom are public figures. The couple kickstarted their latest tour in Barcelona.

“We are officially on vacation!! 😁,” the 64-year-old said as the caption to photos with a few of the other couples in their finest threads and a few shots of them enjoying fine dining. “Hanging out with our great friends John and Vicki Palmer and Sam and LaTanya Jackson at Boca Grande in Barcelona, Spain! The food was *chef’s kiss*” he wrote.

View this post on Instagram A post shared by Earvin "Magic" Johnson (@magicjohnson)

After visiting Barcelona, the couples’ next stop on the summer tour was the party city of Ibiza. They indulged in seafood and enjoyed some serene views from the yacht and were joined by another star couple, Cedric the Entertainer and his wife , Lorna.

“Today Cookie and I enjoyed a beautiful day in Ibiza, Spain,” he wrote. “We had a wonderful lunch at Juan Y Andrea Formentera with our friends John and Vicki Palmer, Sam and LaTanya Jackson, and Cedric the Entertainer and his wife Lorna. I encourage everyone to have lunch right on the beach at Juan Y Andrea. We ate the catch of the day, fresh sea bass and lobster… So delicious!”

In 2023 , the Johnsons toured Europe and had quite a few celebrity friends come along for that trip. In addition to Samuel L. Jackson and his wife, LaTanya Richardson Jackson, and Vicki and John Palmer, they spent time with Judge Greg Mathis and his wife, Linda Mathis, as well as Michael Jordan and his wife, Yvette Prieto. Johnson also had his kids join the trip last year, including Andre and his wife Lisa, his son EJ and daughter Elisa, and their grandchildren Gigi and Avery.

Some highlights of the trips usually include top-tier meals from a private chef and Fourth of July celebrations. We look forward to seeing where the couples land next and living vicariously through them!

It's true kids lose ground during summer. See five ways to prevent learning loss.

yacht math is fun

School is out, the mercury is climbing at a record pace , and young people across America are at risk of losing the reading and math skills they learned during the academic year.

In an average year, kids lose about 20% of their progress in reading and 27% in math during the summer, according to a 2020 study of outcomes from 2008 to 2016 in the  American Educational Research Journal .

Students are susceptible to varying degrees of learning loss, especially if they don't attend summer school or do other education-related activities, according to the U,S. Department of Education .

What students do over the summer can affect how they perform on tests at the beginning of the next school year, said Andrew McEachin, an education researcher, formerly at NWEA.

The takeaway for family members and summer instructors, experts say, is they should think strategically if they want to help children hang onto what they've learned.

In interviews with USA TODAY, education experts and school leaders offered five key ways to avoid backsliding. They said adults should encourage kids to read books , use technology to stay fresh on math equations and take kids on field trips to local museums where they can apply their science and math skills and learn new ones.

Summer sucked the smarts from your kid? 4 ways to avert brain drain before school starts

Visit libraries, pick up free books, join contests

Experts said continuing to read in the summer is essential to maintaining literacy skills, and it's key that grownups make reading fun. Families should take advantage of summer reading programs at public libraries. "Reading just four to six books over the summer" can stymie summer learning loss, officials at the Colorado Department of Education said.

Local libraries nationwide host a wide range of programs to promote literacy over the summer. The New York City Public Library offers early literacy storytimes, reading challenges and teen writing contests and invites local authors and illustrators to engage on-site with young people. The public libraries in San Jose, California are offering incentives for kids in July , encouraging them to read and earn prizes as part of a literacy arts fundraiser. In Iowa, the state library is encouraging students to participate in the national  iREAD program , focused this year on protecting species from extinction, restoring habitats, enhancing ecosystems and protecting biological diversity.

National booksellers are also offering programming to combat the learning backslide. Barnes and Noble has free books on hand for kids who submit a journal entry about their favorite part of a book. Scholastic has a free, online summer reading " digital destination " program where young people can attend author events, interact with fictional characters and play book-based games from home.

Summer instructors are trying innovative ways to keep kids reading over the summer. At a literacy magnet in Chicago, school librarian Lies Garner created a summer book club for new and incoming students. Educators at another Chicago public school converted a classroom into a café-like environment with glass walls, bean bag chairs, chess boards and a record player for fourth- to sixth-grade students, said Evan Moore, spokesperson for Chicago Public Schools.

Moose math, old-fashioned worksheets

Since the COVID-19 school closures, schools are more adept at using opportunities for kids to solve math equations and apply arithmetic online.

The array of digital math programs used during the school year can be accessed online. Teachers across the country have also lined up their favorite online math learning tools through Edutopia : The greatest hits, which all include fees, include the math game-based application Moose Math, the subscription website Happy Numbers and the web-based math learning program Zearn . Scholastic recommends a few free options, including interactive math challenges from Khan Academy , and Parcc Games .

Video games that require math or science skills are also a way to get kids learning, wrote Richard Blankman in an article for the Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. The popular math role-playing fantasy game Prodigy is one example.

There are also practical ways for families and caretakers to expose kids to new information during the summer, including introducing kids to budgeting and finance or tracking sports statistics while watching a favorite sport, Blankman wrote.

"Sports are full of math. For younger students, the activity can be as simple as adding up goals, identifying shapes, or discussing the difference between 2- and 3-point shots," he wrote.

If traditional worksheets work best for a child, families may print out math worksheets with equations for kids to complete.

Learn about astrophysics or hear from scientists at museums

Parents can take advantage of science or math museums to expose children to new ideas and give them chances to apply their school skills, Blankman wrote. Museums often offer summer learning programs and kid-focused exhibits.

Some communities offer discounted family rates for museums in the summer. The San Francisco Museums for All program grants local residents with CalFresh or Medi-Cal cards free or discounted tickets to participating museums, including the Walt Disney Family Museum and the Aquarium of the Bay.

The national Museums4All program also grants free or reduced admission to more than 1,300 museums throughout the U.S. for families who receive food assistance this summer. Military families can also get a discount on museums during the summer.

Some museums provide classes for kids to apply their math and science skills. New York teens can take free science classes in anthropology, astrophysics, conservation and evolutionary biology at the American Museum of National History. The museum also offers summer internships to older students and camp for younger kids.

Take music or career tech classes at summer school

There are also a broad range of summer programs for families interested in exposing children to music and STEM learning.

The Boys and Girls Club of America is running a summer learning loss prevention program called Summer Brain Gain, supported by Disney, to address the summer slide for students of all ages.

Some school districts are offering academic programs that are free for some families. The Philadelphia Public School District is hosting a summer camp for sixth- to eighth-grade students interested in exploring career and technical education options, free summer school for K-12 students and an extended school year program for students who require special education support, said Monique Braxton, a spokesperson for the district.

Summer school can also be an opportunity for kids to try something new. The Los Angeles Unified School District's summer school features lessons on electives like music and fashion in addition to math and reading instruction, said Alberto Carvalho, superintendent for the Los Angeles Unified School District.

Visit counselors and embrace summertime joy and play

District leaders and researchers say kids also need a break from learning during the summer. Parents should pay attention to how children are feeling and provide opportunities for social interactions when they need them, McEachin said.

"It's important that kids have the opportunity to just be kids over the summer, where they're both engaged and motivated in the learning, but also developing socially," he said.

Summer can be a hard time for some kids who rely on mental health counseling and support at school. Some summer camps are incorporating social and emotional well-being, and some schools are offering counseling services over the break.

Elon Musk mocks Mark Zuckerberg's big hydrofoil swag moment, says he prefers to work instead of having fun on yachts

  • Elon Musk has weighed in on Mark Zuckerberg's latest viral stunt.
  • The Meta CEO posted a video of himself hydrofoiling while wearing a tuxedo. Musk wasn't impressed.
  • "May he continue to have fun on his yachts. I prefer to work," Musk said of the video.

Insider Today

Mark Zuckerberg may have wowed his fans with a badass video of himself hydrofoiling on Independence Day, but Elon Musk certainly doesn't seem impressed.

"May he continue to have fun on his yachts. I prefer to work," Musk wrote in an X post in response to the video .

Zuckerberg went viral on Thursday after he posted a video of himself surfing on a hydrofoil to Facebook and Instagram. In the clip, the Meta CEO can be seen waving an American flag and taking sips from a can of beer, all while dressed to the nines in a tuxedo.

"Happy birthday, America!" Zuckerberg captioned his post.

Representatives for Musk and Zuckerberg didn't immediately respond to requests for comment from BI sent outside regular business hours.

View this post on Instagram A post shared by Mark Zuckerberg (@zuck)

This, of course, isn't the first time Musk has thrown shade at his tech-world nemesis.

In June 2023, Musk challenged Zuckerberg to a cage match following reports that said Meta was building an X rival .

Zuckerberg initially agreed to the request but brushed aside the proposal after months of back and forth. Musk, however, hasn't forgotten about the fight.

"If only Zuckerberg were as tough (sigh). I've offered to fight him any place, any time, any rules, but all I hear is crickets," Musk said in an X post on May 15, a day after Zuckerberg celebrated his 40th birthday .

Related stories

Zuckerberg isn't the only yacht-owning billionaire that Musk has accused of being a slouch.

In 2021, Musk made a similar remark about his fellow space baron, Jeff Bezos . The SpaceX CEO told the Financial Times in an interview then that Bezos should spend more time on his rocket company, Blue Origin.

"As a friend of mine says, he should spend more time at Blue Origin and less time in the hot tub," Musk told the outlet.

Bezos, it seems, paid no mind to Musk's zinger and has gone on to enjoy some hot yacht summers.

To be sure, Musk is no stranger to yachts.

In July 2022, he was seen lounging on a yacht in Mykonos, Greece, with Endeavor CEO Ari Emanuel and his fashion designer wife, Sarah Staudinger.

Haha damn, maybe I should take off my shirt more often … free the nip!! (already back in the factory btw) — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) July 18, 2022

"Haha damn, maybe I should take off my shirt more often … free the nip!! (already back in the factory btw)," Musk wrote in an X post on July 18, 2022.

That getaway was a rare moment for Musk, who's famously said that he hates taking vacations.

Musk once came close to dying in 2000 when he contracted malaria while vacationing in South Africa.

Musk said the trip, which he took after Peter Thiel ousted him as PayPal CEO, was his first real vacation from work. Musk was booted from PayPal while on his honeymoon with his first wife, Justine Musk, a few months earlier. "In the last 12 years, I only tried to take a week off twice," he said in 2015 . "The first time I took a week off, the Orbital Sciences rocket exploded, and Richard Branson's rocket exploded in that same week."

"The second time I took a week off, my rocket exploded ," Musk said.

"The lesson here is, don't take a week off," he added.
