Decimal Derby is a board game that helps students practice adding and subtracting positive and negative decimals. Students must answer problems involving adding and subtracting decimals to move their game piece around the game board. Landing on a "Take a Chance" spot adds some luck into the game, as these cards either move a player forward or back spaces.
Your students may also like the following bundle of board games that include operations with only positive fractions and decimals. This Decimal Derby (Negative Number Edition) is NOT included in this bundle.

Problem difficulty ranges from problems such as -2.5 + 3.4 to problems such as -15.9 - (-1.117). The number of spaces a player moves is related to the difficulty of the problem.
