HOW TO PLAY THE GAME
Materials to play: Sets of cards (in envelopes), dry erase boards (for each student), dry erase markers (for each student), eraser (for each student)
1. Students will select an envelope and pull out the index cards. They must arrange them so that they equal the number written on the envelope. They may use the dry erase boards to help them solve the problem. To make play more challenging, take away the dry erase boards. Students will then have to complete the problems mentally.
2. When a team has correctly arranged the cards, they should raise their hands to signal to the teacher that they need their problem checked over. Once the teacher approves the answer, they may place the index cards in the envelope and choose another.
