Practise using the jump strategy for multi-digit addition with a fun maths game.

Addition with the Jump Strategy – Hop into Maths Games!

Get ready to excite your students with a new maths game to help them practise one of their favourite maths strategies– the jump strategy!

The jump strategy for addition is a maths strategy that helps students break down addition problems into smaller, more manageable steps. This strategy involves “jumping” forward on a number line to add or skip count to find the total.

Practise Using Addition Strategies for Multi-Digit Numbers

This game allows students to practise using the jump strategy for solving addition problems. This is ideal to use in small groups of 4 during maths centres.

This fun game includes:

  • an instruction card
  • question and answer cards (two-digit plus two-digit and three-digit plus two-digit)
  • a number line template for students to show their work.

Print the game instructions and question-and-answer cards on heavy card. Print one number line template for each player. To save paper, place the number lines in a dry-erase pocket.
