Get your students engaged and applying math to real world problems! This product will harness your students enjoyment of video games while doing a design challenge. Students will be doing inquiry, a design challenge, while learning about and applying integers to solve a real problem all at once.
Picture your class quietly drawing their video game storyboards while explaining how they correctly incorporated “integers” into their game design.
If you are looking for a way to challenge your students in math while engaging and having them think about applying what they are learning, then this product is for you.
No technology needed! Students draw their video game storyboard on the design template that is part of the challenge booklet you will print off and give to students.
Instructions: print off the booklet and give to students.
- a template for students to show their progress learning how to add and subtract with integers
- the design challenge
- a storyboard template
- an assessment rubric
