I started using Math Bingo to review last year in my classroom and it has been great! This BINGO game has 24 essential concepts from eighth grade math. I usually group two or three units together in one game and it has provided a fun whole-class review.
This file includes fifteen game boards and cards to cut up so you can choose terms at random. You can laminate the boards and let the students use dry-erase markers to cross things off.
I like to let students work in partners and preview the board before the game begins. It is great to hear them discuss these important concepts. To play the game, I pick a card and set a timer to give them a minute or two to figure out where the solution is. It is also helpful to project the terms that you’ve already said (I use a document camera), so that students aren’t asking you to repeat yourself over and over.
When a group gets five spaces in a row vertically, horizontally, or diagonally, they call out “BINGO”. When this happens, I always check their board with the terms I’ve called to see if they are correct. If they are, I usually give them a small treat or prize (I am not above bribery!)
I have created 5 Math Bingo Games for 8th grade common core math covering the following topics:
1. Transformations, Congruence, & Similarity
2. Numbers & The Pythagorean Theorem
3. Linear & Nonlinear Functions
4. Linear Relationships & Analysis
5. Angles & Volume
You can purchase them together in my 8th Grade Math BINGO Bundle and get 25% off!!!

Verify experimentally the properties of rotations, reflections, and translations:
Lines are taken to lines, and line segments to line segments of the same length.
Angles are taken to angles of the same measure.
Parallel lines are taken to parallel lines.
Understand that a two-dimensional figure is congruent to another if the second can be obtained from the first by a sequence of rotations, reflections, and translations; given two congruent figures, describe a sequence that exhibits the congruence between them.
Describe the effect of dilations, translations, rotations, and reflections on two-dimensional figures using coordinates.
Understand that a two-dimensional figure is similar to another if the second can be obtained from the first by a sequence of rotations, reflections, translations, and dilations; given two similar two-dimensional figures, describe a sequence that exhibits the similarity between them.
Use informal arguments to establish facts about the angle sum and exterior angle of triangles, about the angles created when parallel lines are cut by a transversal, and the angle-angle criterion for similarity of triangles. For example, arrange three copies of the same triangle so that the sum of the three angles appears to form a line, and give an argument in terms of transversals why this is so.
