Number Line Madness Game

This game was designed to provide practice in adding integers, using the number line model.  In this model, students move to the right for a positive integer and to the left when adding a negative integer.

Each player starts at 0.  The first player spins the spinner, then adds that number to her current position.  The second player spins and moves accordingly.  Play continues back and forth until one of the players reaches +15 or -15 or beyond these endpoints.

Download the Number Line Madness Game.  The PDF file includes extra number lines and optional spinners to differentiate levels of challenge to best meet the needs of varied learners.
