PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a new take on an old favorite. This game for two players has students taking turns drawing lines on a grid. Each time a player closes a box with the fourth side, the player takes the box, and goes again. But in this game, the box contains an integer which the player must then add to his or her score. No skipping turns, and no refusing to take a score, the players strive for the positive numbers but are often forced to take negative numbers. Highly engaging, this game will have even your less motivated students adding integers in no time. Of course a small treat for the winner helps.

Key words: Adding, integers, game, activity, team, group, partner, cooperative learning, capture, algebra, integers games, integer games

This activity definitely keeps my students engaged, however, they are so busy making the boxes that they don't focus on adding the integers. A suggestion is to have a separate score keeping sheet.

Great idea! My only suggestion would be to have students keep a running total as they are playing the game to make it easier to spot check how they are doing while playing.

I will try to incorporate that into my next revision of the game.
