This classic Domino game is a great way to review and reinforce problem solving with the pythagorean theorem. Students will find the missing hypotenuse or leg in a variety of real world and mathematical problems. It is designed as a classroom station for groups of four. However, a student could play individually or partners could play together. It works perfectly in stations as it is easily differentiated. As my students are rotating from one station to the next, I can switch out the big deck for a smaller one to modify the game for a lower level group. This activity contains 18 dominoes. I laminate the included directions to keep at the station. There is also a sheet for students to show their work.
An answer key is unnecessary as the problems in the file go in order. That is, each problem is answered on the following domino and the last problem is answered on the first. You can print a copy to use as a key.
My students love the domino station.
