A fun, hands-on board game to play in groups when learning to solve subtraction equations that require trading.
Use this board game to help your students apply their understanding of trading/regrouping.
Students take turns to roll the die and move around the game board. The number they land on is the minuend of a subtraction equation. They then spin the tens spinner and the ones spinner to form a number. This is the subtrahend of the equation. MAB blocks are placed on the Trading Mat and the student moves the blocks around, making sure they trade tens for ones as required.
The first person to land on the ‘You Win’ square is the winner.

It is strongly advised to enlarge the size of the game board.
