• “Playing MathMania” is an activity that will:
o Help students visualize where numbers belong on the number line.
o Challenge them find the distance between two numbers.
o Contemplate how to get to a number from zero by moving back and forth on the number line.
• When finding the distance between two numbers, ensure students are not counting their current position as the first movement.
*STUDENTS DO NOT ACTUALLY PLAY THIS GAME. The lesson uses scores from "previously played" games.
