If your students are struggling with the concept of integers, if you are just starting to teach this content, or if you think your students need a review before moving on to tougher algebra concepts, this quick and easy game can help you!
Set up like Memory for one or two students, or like Go Fish for two or more students. Players have to make matches by rewriting the expression with integers, or renaming the answer in terms of absolute and opposite values.
The images in the thumbnails show a couple cards close up. There are 20 sets of 4 matching cards. Matches are simple expressions such as: -4 + 6, 6-4, I-2I, and 2.
There is also a teaching strategy sheet with a visual representation of a mountain and adjacent lake to help students SEE how these negative and positive numbers work together.
You may also like a set of card I made, Rock Star Playing Cards
. This is a deck of cards ranging from 0 to 15, with 4 "suits". They are nice to help students build basic fact fluency. Set the game up to meet your students' needs, have the play multiplication war, add to 500, or any other game you might know. Instead of being stuck to numbers from 1-9 with a regular deck of card, this set allows you to use larger numbers for higher mental math skills! (SOLD SEPARATELY, click the link for more information)
