To download the game board for Gomoku with Integers, click here.
This is the last in my Gomoku series. I included integers because I always have those students who want to do something more advanced than the rest. The rules of the game are the same: roll two dice, perform the operation, place a marker on the square. Try to get five in a row before your opponent. This version of the game includes negative numbers.
I would provide a number line like the one below to support my students' conceptual understanding of negative numbers. I would explain that they could start with either number on the dice and subtract the other. I would teach this at an exposure level to students who want a "challenge."
