Math Giraffe


This game is great practice for classifying polynomials. Students play in small groups. After drawing a card with a polynomial, the student chooses whether to cross off the classification for number of terms or for degree (they must identify both to decide which is a better strategy). Four spaces marked off in a row results in a win!

Two pages of cards have no "like terms" but the terms are not all in standard form.

An additional page of more challenging cards has like terms that are not yet combined. You can choose whether or not to add these to the decks.
