Creating an Integer Board Game

 

 

 

 

Grade 7 Math                                                                                    January- Feb 2012

 

You will be creating your own board game that will include everything you learn about integers in class. You may work in groups of 2-3 but no more than 3 people to a group.

Your board game must meet the following guidelines:

 

  1. You must include a set of rules that are clearly defined and easy to follow. How is the game played? How do you clarify a winner?
  2. Your board game should be able to be played by 2-6 players
  3. Include a list of materials that are included in your board game. For example, there must be game pieces included unless you identify what can be used as markers.
  4. There should be at least 20 spaces on the game board. Depending on how the game is played, there may be a starting point and an end point.
  5. Your game should include “cards” where players must solve integer problems. There should be a minimum of 20 different cards that include every operation and maybe other concepts we have learned. There should be about an even amount of each operation included.
  6. On a separate piece of paper, you should have every integer problem (from the cards) written down with its correct solution.
  7. Make sure the board game and directions are neat.
  8. Be Creative.

 

This is an in-class project. You will be given a certain amount of time to work on your game each week. All your materials for the project should be kept in class or in your locker.

20 Math problems are used throughout the entire game to move spaces, earn or lose points, and win the game. Solutions are presented and correct.

Math problems are used only during certain parts of the game, or less than 20. Solutions are presented and mostly correct

Math problems are not used in the game, or not solved. Integers are only used in the game as positive and negative numbers.

Math problems are not evident at all or not incorporated in the game.
