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!!!

Explain a proof of the Pythagorean Theorem and its converse.
Apply the Pythagorean Theorem to determine unknown side lengths in right triangles in real-world and mathematical problems in two and three dimensions.
Apply the Pythagorean Theorem to find the distance between two points in a coordinate system.
Know that numbers that are not rational are called irrational. Understand informally that every number has a decimal expansion; for rational numbers show that the decimal expansion repeats eventually, and convert a decimal expansion which repeats eventually into a rational number.
Use rational approximations of irrational numbers to compare the size of irrational numbers, locate them approximately on a number line diagram, and estimate the value of expressions (e.g., π2). For example, by truncating the decimal expansion of √2, show that √2 is between 1 and 2, then between 1.4 and 1.5, and explain how to continue on to get better approximations.
