Keyboarding- Typing Games- Number Crunch
This is a fun activity to do with students in a keyboarding/typing class to help students build their typing speed. Great activity to do after learning the numeric keypad. Students will basically be given a set amount of time to type various calculations with the answers using the numeric keypad. The specific directions for the activity are as follows: You will be given a set amount of time to complete the calculations below. Open up a blank Word document. Get rid of the default 1.15 line spacing and change the font size to 11. Use default Calibri font. Please type your name and then go through each calculation using the numeric keypad. Number each one as done below without spacing after the decimal. Please type the answer under each number where it says answer. Do not type the word answer- just the actual answer. Please double space between each calculation as done below. Please do your best to type as many items as possible in the allotted time and please go in order. Please make sure to STOP typing when time is called! The student(s) with the longest list with the correct calculations will be rewarded. Good luck!
Included in this download is the activity sheet for the students and an answer key. The calculations are simple math so upper elementary, middle and high school kids should have no problem- simple adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing.
