Decimal Derby is a board game that helps students practice adding and subtracting 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.
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.
The game can be played with 2-5 players. The following items ARE included in this resource:
-Rules and Teacher Instructions
-Decimal Derby Game Board
-Decimal Derby Playing Cards
-Decimal Derby Chance Cards
-Student Worksheet (for students to show work)
The following IS NOT included, but will be needed to play the game.
-One Game Piece Per Player (I use counters)
-Calculator (for students to check answers)
