Academic Goal: Students will be able to practice their addition skills using the partial sums algorithm to solve algebraic problems.
This activity is intended to allow students to practice using the partial sums algorithm. It is designed to be used during math rotations. They will be working in groups so that students who may not be able to use this algorithm successfully can get more help using it from their classmates. The game can also be modified to be played with only two players. If you make copies of the game, you can also let the entire class play within their learning groups.
