BEAT THE BOXES! is designed to be an icebreaker activity to review Algebra 2 at the beginning of a Precalculus course. If students are beginning an Algebra 2 course, and came from an honors or advanced Algebra 1 course, they may be able to do this activity as well. (While it’s designed to be an icebreaker, it can also be used at any time of the year as an Algebra review activity). Students circulate around the classroom and get to know other students as they work problems on each other's papers. Two forms of this activity are included.
