Grades: 6,7,8,9

Description: This deck contains 33 real world scenarios that talk about distance, elevation, and sea level. Students will need to calculate the distance between two integers - which is always a positive value. They will also be presented with cards asking them to find the new elevation of an object - this can be either a positive or negative number. With clues such as sea level, the ground, and the floor, students will need to realize when the values change from positive to negative numbers. Each game deals 10 random cards, resulting in many unique games that can be played. All answers need to be written out with the label used in the scenario. If a student is stumped, they can surrender the card for the correct answer.
