Practice solving addition and subtraction equations with positive and negative numbers using an interactive mystery picture reveal.
It’s No Mystery! Adding and Subtracting Positive and Negative Numbers Can be Fun!
Integers are an essential aspect of upper-level mathematics, but for many students, they can seem dry, unexciting, or difficult. However, learning about integers doesn’t have to be a dull experience. There are various ways to make working with integers fun and engaging, and one of the most effective ways is through gamified learning. By incorporating game elements into math lessons, you can transform a seemingly tedious subject into an exciting and interactive experience that students will enjoy.
Skip that Adding and Subtracting Integers Worksheet!
This digital learning activity is the perfect replacement for that boring old worksheet. With the Mystery reveal, students will solve a series of questions linked to a specific portion of a grid system. As each question is answered correctly, a piece of the grid disappears to reveal a hidden picture underneath. If students answer incorrectly, they are redirected to try the problem again.
This resource provides students with 20 different exercises to help them build fluency with adding and subtracting integers on a number line. It runs in Google Slides and can be easily embedded into any LMS system, even Google Classroom!
