    This bundle consists of all the Three in a Row and Tic-Tac-Toe games designed for Middle School Math. In this self checking resource, students practice a variety of skills (listed below) in one of two familiar games. This game is great for independent practice and this activity is also great for stations. Students can choose to takes turns attempting to connect three in the "Connect Four" inspired game, or get three in a row on the tic-tac-toe board. In both games, students set up the board, solve the problems on the student work space provided or a whiteboard and turn the chip over to reveal the correct answer.

    All resources have extra problems for great re-play value.

    Included in this Bundle:

    Distributive Property (*Freebie*)

    Combining Like Terms (Electronic Version Included Also)

    Combining Like Terms with the Distributive Property


    Adding Integers

    Subtracting Integers

    Multiplying and Dividing Integers

    How to play:

    1. First, after the game has been set up and chips have been distributed, the first player chooses which question he/she will answer. The player solves on a white-board or on scratch paper. (Both students should solve for additional practice.)

    2. Next, the student checks the answer by turning over the question. If his answer is correct, the question chip is replaced with his player chip. If incorrect, the question chip remains or is replaced by another question chip that is not currently on the board.

    3. Following his turn, the other student takes his turn. Game-play continues until one of the players obtains three in a row or until the board is full.

    4. Finally, to replay, all used question cards should be replaced with new question cards if possible. If not possible, question cards should be shuffled on the board.

    *Challenge possibility: Have the students place the cards answer-side up and attempt to create a problem that results in the given answer.
    (Self checking will no longer work.)

    to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
    Identify when two expressions are equivalent (i.e., when the two expressions name the same number regardless of which value is substituted into them). For example, the expressions ๐˜บ + ๐˜บ + ๐˜บ and 3๐˜บ are equivalent because they name the same number regardless of which number ๐˜บ stands for.
    Apply the properties of operations to generate equivalent expressions. For example, apply the distributive property to the expression 3 (2 + ๐˜น) to produce the equivalent expression 6 + 3๐˜น; apply the distributive property to the expression 24๐˜น + 18๐˜บ to produce the equivalent expression 6 (4๐˜น + 3๐˜บ); apply properties of operations to ๐˜บ + ๐˜บ + ๐˜บ to produce the equivalent expression 3๐˜บ.
    Write and evaluate numerical expressions involving whole-number exponents.
    Apply properties of operations as strategies to multiply and divide rational numbers.
    Understand that multiplication is extended from fractions to rational numbers by requiring that operations continue to satisfy the properties of operations, particularly the distributive property, leading to products such as (โ€“1)(โ€“1) = 1 and the rules for multiplying signed numbers. Interpret products of rational numbers by describing real-world contexts.
