# Subtraction Game - Bump

Subtraction Game: Zebra Bump is an engaging mathematical game for young mathematicians. It is ideal for a lesson warm up, math centers or to add to homework.

Essence of the Game:

Two players race around the outside track answering subtraction algorithms as they go. On giving the correct answer the students place one of their counters on the algorithm's answer in the centre of the board. The game is ideal for practicing Subtraction Basic Facts and for developing number strategies associated with Subtraction.

What You Need:

2 Players
1 Bump Board
2 playing pieces (e.g. counters, coins, small rocks, game pieces)
5 transparent counters per player
1 die marked 1-6

Game Set Up:

Players sit facing the board with their 5 counters in hand. Each player chooses a different tree as their starting point on the board and places their game piece on it.
NB The students must decide if they go around the board clockwise or anticlockwise. (For no other reason but to provide a context to learn the terms 'clockwise' and 'anti-clockwise') hehehehe

How to Play:

1. The student with the longest middle name goes first.
2. Player One throws the die and moves their counter the corresponding number of spaces.
3. Player One answers the algorithm they land on aloud and places a counter on the difference in the middle of the board.
4. Player 2 then repeats steps 2 & 3.

Enjoy!!!
