Gail Englert
An order of operations game
"I wanted a game that my students could use to practice using order of operations, and also sharpen their mental math skills, so I created this game, that I call "fences". The original game board contains the numbers from 1 to 34, but it can be adjusted to include larger numbers, or integers, or fractional amounts... Whatever you want your students to work with. Students start with 4 digits, and use two or more of them to create expressions that have values named on the gameboard. They write the expression and their initials in the cell with the targeted amount to claim that cell, and then record points (one point per digit used) for their turn. If they are able to claim adjacent cells, they earn double points for the two touching cells on that turn. The game continues until as many cells as possible have been claimed."
