Gomoku with Integers

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."

Gomoku Games: Five in a Row is available for free at Teachers Pay Teachers and Teacher's Notebook.
