Multiplying and dividing fractions; multiplying, adding and subtracting decimals; calculating with percents, and finding the Lowest Common Multiple and the Greatest Common Factor are the math concepts addressed in this Jeopardy style math game. This collection of 30 word problems is organized and mixed within the following categories:
Sports and Recreation
There is variety of problem types in this game. Several contain trivia. For example, when students successfully complete one problem, their answer will reveal which sport Teddy Roosevelt found so deadly that he stepped in personally and created rule changes.
Each answer slide reveal more than the final results. Instead, students are shown a complete step-by-step solution.
This game is deal for review and test preparation and offers itself easily to a variety of approaches. One that I like is “Class vs Teacher”. I write a class goal on the whiteboard, such as 100 points. Students complete their work on individual whiteboards and, after a specified time, must stop and circle their answers. Next, the solution slide is shown and each student with the correct answer is awarded a single point. The class sum is deducted from the class total. The class wins if the score is reduced to zero before the game ends.
The use of calculators is discouraged.
