Then for whatever math concept you are using, just write it on the “laminated” pin. For instance, when we study fractions, I write several different fractions- one per pin- on them. Then students roll their ball (balled up paper works or even ping pong balls) into the pins. They can then add all the fraction pins that are down or if working on equivalent fractions, they can name an equivalent fraction for each pin down. I have even not written anything on them and had students tell me what fraction of the pins are down. This applies to any number and operations; Adding numbers, multiplying numbers, so on.
