This is a review game I use at the end of the school year before our final comprehensive exam.
Question topics include:
-Two + Multi-step equations
-Identifying slope intercept form
-Linear or Non Linear pictures and tables
-Square roots + cubed roots
-Evaluating expressions with square roots
-Solutions to systems
These are handwritten questions. The answers to the questions are at the bottom right corner of each page.
Rules of Bazinga!:
This is a game where anything can happen, and you don't know the true winner of the game until the bell rings! It keeps the game exciting and fast-paced.
+Place bazinga! cards face down (Bazinga! cards can also be purchased in my store for $1).
I like to tape manilla folders to my whiteboard, and place the cards inside the folders.
+Separate class into teams.
+Show problem on the board using projector (or you can even put questions into a powerpoint).
+Each team has a mini-whiteboard or scratch paper to complete the problem.
+After a certain time period, have the first team show their answer. If they are right, send one representative up to pick a bazinga card.
Cards might be: add six to your team, take away two points from a team of your choice, stand on a chair until the end of the game, switch teams, or even bazinga! The first bazinga card drawn means the team's score is doubled, and the second bazinga card drawn means the score goes to zero. (It gets really exciting with negative scores sometimes!)
If that team is wrong, then go around the room to see if any other team has the correct answer. If they do, that team gets a chance to pick a card, and then the rotation continues.
