is a fun way to practice computation and order of operations, while planning a strategy to manipulate numbers for a desired outcome. Differentiation is built in, pushing students to think beyond simply adding and subtracting.
This has been a popular game in my math classroom. I usually teach it early in the year, so I can have it in my arsenal of go-to activities. Once the students learn how to play, it's a great game to leave for substitutes! Many subs have commented how engaged the students were when playing. Teacher notes and game boards are included.
