Who's afraid of Integers?
Banish their fear with this 'must-play' fun game.
Deal out all the cards to the players.
Players place their cards in a stack face down.
All players open their top card at the same time.
The first player to shout out the total wins the cards.
Continue playing till one player wins all the cards.
This game is easy enough for all. Students learn to think fast. The fastest way to come up with the total is to cancel the numbers by matching the positive and negative numbers to get zero.
Cards: +1, +1, -1, -2
Mentally match the +1, +1, -2 to cancel them out. You are left with -1 as the total.
