I’ve been thinking a lot lately about how to fill the conceptual gaps my students have. Negative numbers are some of the most common struggle areas I’ve encountered during my experiences with inner city education.
Here are the materials for the game:
- I made a game board with Desmos in order to use less paper and allow the students to move their game pieces easier.
- As usual, Desmos came through with a great improvement.

- Denis Sheeran made a great change to the Desmos game board.
@DaneEhlert i’ll be digging through the page a lot. in the football desmos, i made the black line abs(a-b). It shows who’s winning better.

What did I leave out? Do you have suggestions for improvement?
