Middle School Math Games
My newest product is a printable Middle School Math Game focused on adding and subtracting integers from 20 to -20 and is ready to print and go!
Are your students bored with worksheets or textbook problem in order to practice Middle School Math concepts?
Practice doesn’t always have to be a pencil-paper worksheet.
I love using Middle School Math Games in my Math class as they allow students to practice multiple math skills simultaneously in a motivating and engaging way.
I created this Middle School Math Game to practice adding and subtracting positive and negative integers and called it Operation Integers. My students are able to play this game independently, which allows me to walk around and make observations about their learning and their progress, assess students as well as work with a small group or an individual student.
I’ve used this math game as practice, math station, and as a task for early finisher.
Middle School Math Game: Operation Integers includes
A deck of printable playing cards
2 game mats (one for addition and one for subtraction)
Equation tracking sheet
You will need to print and make 4 copies of the cards in order to make a deck, a game sheet and an equation tracker. Students can play with 2-4 players. I suggest you use card stock and then laminate the game board and playing cards so they'll last quite some time.
In this game, red cards are negative, blue cards are positive, green cards are 0 and there is one purple wild card.
Each player gets 7 cards.
The remaining cards are a draw pile.
The object of the game is to be the first player to get rid of all of the cards in their hand.
For the first turn, the player must create a correct number sentence in the form A + B = C (for example, 5 + (-3) = 2. This player must then record the equation they create on their tracking sheet.
The following player can cover one, two or all three cards to create another true equation. This player must then write their equation on their tracking sheet.
Play continues until one player no longer has cards.
If a player can not create an equation on their turn, they have to draw cards and their turn ends.
In order to differentiate,
* you could remove all of the negative integers for those students working on basic addition facts
* only include the numbers from -10 to +10
* allow for double play ( Players can use both the addition or subtraction board)
