Have you ever asked yourself the question -what is the allure of **SHOOTing** paper wads into the garbage can for middle school students? Well I know I have...(*almost daily!)*

.

.

Well if you can't beat them - **JOIN** them!

.

.

*Math-etball is a great way to review Math content - while allowed your most mathematically skilled to also shoot paper wads in the trashcan!! *

*.*

*.*

**HOW TO PLAY:**

- Pick/Assign Teams

*→This is up to teacher discretion*

- Assign each student on each team a number 1-13

*→Students will be going up against one another, so I personally create teams myself and assign opponents at similar skill levels*

oTeacher calls for Player Number

*→ You can go in order, or skip around! *

- Students with that number from each team will come to the board
- Teacher will click that player number and show the question
- Both Players will show their work for that question on the front board.
- Player that shows the correct work & answer first gets 1 point for their team. And then proceeds to shoot for extra points!
- Tape a 1pt, 2pt, 3pt line on the floor
- Student choses & gets 1 shot a ball/paper wad into the garbage can from whichever line they want!
- Teacher keeps score
- Repeat this process until all students have participated
- While at their desk –other students should be working out each question on the corresponding handout.

*→ I typically take up for a participation grade & say that if the two students at the board miss the question –it becomes a REBOUND and anyone can answer for 1 point for their team!*

- Game is set up for 26 students & 2 rounds.

*→ However this can be modified to meet the size & time of any class!*

CCSS7.G.B.6

Solve real-world and mathematical problems involving area, volume and surface area of two- and three-dimensional objects composed of triangles, quadrilaterals, polygons, cubes, and right prisms.

CCSS6.G.A.4

Represent three-dimensional figures using nets made up of rectangles and triangles, and use the nets to find the surface area of these figures. Apply these techniques in the context of solving real-world and mathematical problems.

CCSS6.G.A.3

Draw polygons in the coordinate plane given coordinates for the vertices; use coordinates to find the length of a side joining points with the same first coordinate or the same second coordinate. Apply these techniques in the context of solving real-world and mathematical problems.

CCSS6.G.A.2

Find the volume of a right rectangular prism with fractional edge lengths by packing it with unit cubes of the appropriate unit fraction edge lengths, and show that the volume is the same as would be found by multiplying the edge lengths of the prism. Apply the formulas 𝘝 = 𝘭 𝘸 𝘩 and 𝘝 = 𝘣 𝘩 to find volumes of right rectangular prisms with fractional edge lengths in the context of solving real-world and mathematical problems.

CCSS6.G.A.1

Find the area of right triangles, other triangles, special quadrilaterals, and polygons by composing into rectangles or decomposing into triangles and other shapes; apply these techniques in the context of solving real-world and mathematical problems.
