The Plus or Minus Math Game is a wonderful "hands-on" team game for kids in grade three and up.
Children roll 3 dice at a time and must decide how to arrange their numbers, using the order of operations with the rule of only adding and subtracting one time.
Use the smart board to introduce the game rules and to explore the beginning concepts of the order of operations and your students will begin to UNDERSTAND and further develop their own strategic thinking skills.
This game is perfect for assessment purposes and the WHAT WOULD YOU DO? additional bonus pages make this a terrific homework activity.
There are ten THOUGHT PROVOKERS that are included to challenge your students thinking and decision making skills and these can be explored as a whole class activity or students can work in pairs or independently.
Children LOVE rolling dice and playing math games not only motivates young learners but also allows them to learn in a very tactile way.
The game boards are perfect for reproducing and come in black- line master form so also a great activity for including in math journals.
Your "Little Geniuses" will love this easy to learn game and so will you!
