PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Are you ready for some football?

Do you need a fun way for your students to practice the skills involved in solving authentic Super Bowl problems with ratios, rates and percentages? How about a math activity perfect for those months before, during, and after the football season? Try the simple game on this file. Just print and play!

There are two methods of play; solely dependent upon the amount of time you have available in preparation of this fun activity. One method involves game cards, where one side of a paper card has a Super Bowl ratio, rate, or percentage problem, and the other side will have the correct answer. Students play by solving the problems that are face-up on a card, record their answers on a recording sheet, self-check the answer on the back, and if he or she is correct, they get to spin a paper-clip spinner and move down the football field.

The second method of play eliminates the use of the game cards, thus reducing the overall preparation time. Students use a single die to determine problems to solve on their recording sheets, independently self-check the answer with the corresponding answer key, and if he or she is correct, they get to spin a paper-clip spinner and move down the football field.

This file contains:

●suggested procedures and management for both methods of play (whole-class and learning center)

●2 Football Frenzy game boards… they differ only in the color of footballs.

●2 dice charts, one with 11 different football outcomes, one with 6 different football outcomes

●2 paper-clip spinners, one with 11 different football outcomes, one with 6 different football outcomes

●2 recording sheets for students to record their answers to the various questions they will solve during the game (and for teachers to have answer documentation)

●2 recording sheet answer keys

●set of 32 ratios, rates, & percentages question cards

●set of 32 corresponding answer cards

●1 set of blank recording sheets and answer keys

●1 set of 32 blank question cards and 32 blank answer cards

Your students are certain to have a blast playing this game, all the while sharpening their ability to solve problems with ratios, rates and percentages using authentic Super Bowl statistics.

Enjoy!
