This activity provides practice for adding and subtracting whole numbers. Students will begin with $6,000. They will choose "situation cards" which will require them to either add to or subtract from their $6,000. For example, students may draw a situation card that says "You pay for your monthly cell phone bill. This month’s bill is $95." or "Pay day! You receive a pay check for $890." Students can compete against a partner or work independently on this activity.
