I started using Math Bingo to review last year in my classroom and it has been great! Each BINGO board has 24 essential concepts from sixth 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 6 Math Bingo Games for 6th grade common core math covering the following topics:
1. Ratios and Operations
2. Numbers and Coordinate Graphs
3. Properties and Expressions
4. Equations and Inequalities
You can purchase them together in my 6th Grade Math BINGO Bundle and get 25% off!!!

Understand the concept of a ratio and use ratio language to describe a ratio relationship between two quantities. For example, "The ratio of wings to beaks in the bird house at the zoo was 2:1, because for every 2 wings there was 1 beak." "For every vote candidate A received, candidate C received nearly three votes."
Understand the concept of a unit rate a/b associated with a ratio a:b with b ≠ 0, and use rate language in the context of a ratio relationship. For example, "This recipe has a ratio of 3 cups of flour to 4 cups of sugar, so there is 3/4 cup of flour for each cup of sugar." "We paid $75 for 15 hamburgers, which is a rate of $5 per hamburger."1
Use ratio and rate reasoning to solve real-world and mathematical problems, e.g., by reasoning about tables of equivalent ratios, tape diagrams, double number line diagrams, or equations.
Make tables of equivalent ratios relating quantities with whole-number measurements, find missing values in the tables, and plot the pairs of values on the coordinate plane. Use tables to compare ratios.
Solve unit rate problems including those involving unit pricing and constant speed. For example, if it took 7 hours to mow 4 lawns, then at that rate, how many lawns could be mowed in 35 hours? At what rate were lawns being mowed?
Find a percent of a quantity as a rate per 100 (e.g., 30% of a quantity means 30/100 times the quantity); solve problems involving finding the whole, given a part and the percent.
Use ratio reasoning to convert measurement units; manipulate and transform units appropriately when multiplying or dividing quantities.
Interpret and compute quotients of fractions, and solve word problems involving division of fractions by fractions, e.g., by using visual fraction models and equations to represent the problem. For example, create a story context for (2/3) ÷ (3/4) and use a visual fraction model to show the quotient; use the relationship between multiplication and division to explain that (2/3) ÷ (3/4) = 8/9 because 3/4 of 8/9 is 2/3. (In general, (a/b) ÷ (c/d) = ad/bc.) How much chocolate will each person get if 3 people share 1/2 lb of chocolate equally? How many 3/4-cup servings are in 2/3 of a cup of yogurt? How wide is a rectangular strip of land with length 3/4 mi and area 1/2 square mi?.
Compute fluently with multi-digit numbers and find common factors and multiples.
Fluently divide multi-digit numbers using the standard algorithm.
Fluently add, subtract, multiply, and divide multi-digit decimals using the standard algorithm for each operation.
Find the greatest common factor of two whole numbers less than or equal to 100 and the least common multiple of two whole numbers less than or equal to 12. Use the distributive property to express a sum of two whole numbers 1-100 with a common factor as a multiple of a sum of two whole numbers with no common factor. For example, express 36 + 8 as 4 (9 + 2)..
