Product Description
Click here to watch a video explanation of the game.


I created this game when my students needed more practice with solving Absolute Value Equations, but I couldn't tolerate any more worksheets and neither could they. The students practice solving these equations graphically. Please watch the instructional video (link is above) to learn more about the game.

The result: My students LOVE this game and their test scores were higher than previous years. This game is different than the quiz-like games that you and your students are accustom to. You know, the games where the students get a question correct then they get to do something in the game? Instead the players are strategizing to create equations that will create desired results. The outcome is a deeper understanding of the make up of these equations.

In this file you will receive printables to create this game for your classroom. It works best if printed in color. Included are the cards, rule document, gems, equation mat, number line, and gem value sheet. You will need to use something for pawns (buttons, coins, actual pawns, etc.). The game is designed for 2 - 5 players.
