PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This game is great practice for integer addition and subtraction. Students play in small groups and take turns. After drawing two integer cards, the student has a choice whether to add or subtract the integers in any order. Their goal is to cross off each result on a grid-style playing sheet. Four results in a row equals a win!

Students have to use critical thinking to decide what operation to use so that their result is one that gets them closer to having four in a row.

For an added challenge or second round of play, have students draw three integer cards instead of two. A couple of extra "?" cards are included to encourage algebraic thinking. These can represent any integer, but the student must state their choice of number.

See the preview to get an idea of a sample turn.
