Children’s Integer Understanding and the Effects of Linear Board Games: A Look at Two Measures

The purpose of this study was to identify affordances and limitations of using order and value comparison tasks versus number placement tasks to infer students’ negative integer understanding and growth in understanding. Data came from an experiment with kindergarteners (N = 45) and first graders (N = 48), where the experimental group played a numerical linear board game and the other group did control activities, both involving negative integers.
