This is an activity I use when reviewing for tests; this one is specifically for solving linear equations and proportions. I created two blank BINGO cards with the possible answers along the edge. Students then fill in (with ink) the answers into the two blank cards and we start. I have them play with both cards simultaneously and will award bonus points based on their bingo order (1st round, 2nd round, etc). I also suggest setting a maximum number of points possible to achieve.
To keep the game flowing, I created a Power Point presentation to go along with it and go through the slides until someone calls out "BINGO!" After checking the card for accuracy, we then review the correct answers and continue. Also, I award points per round, not the fastest. For example, if I put three problems on the board several students can receive that round's bonus points (this is to help reward accuracy and not speed).
I used Math Type to create all the equations in the Power Point file. To edit an equation, you only need to double click on it and make the changes. To run the game, I print out a copy of the Power Point and use a highlighter to mark the questions you've asked.
Finally, all Bonus Bingo points are contingent on completing the review homework assigned that night. After playing this game for many years, it is one of the few times I hear my students saying, "Mr. Giffhorn, put some more problems on the board!"
While I use this template in math class, it could be changed and used in everything from Science to English to History and Social Studies. Let me know if you have any questions.
I use an interactive whiteboard for my classes (Interwrite). This could also be used with a SMART board or Prometheus board.
