This is a simple yet fun game to help students practice comparing integers, especially those pesky negative numbers. Each pair of students receives 40 integer cards that include numbers from -26 to 25 (mostly negative numbers). Students try to win by having the integer with the highest value.
• One set of 40 integer cards for each pair of students
• One game score sheet for each pair of students
How to play:
Each student takes half the deck of cards (20). At the same time they will flip the top card over. The card with the greater value wins. Students will record the integers they flipped onto the score sheet and write the appropriate symbol (>, <, or =).
