PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

In this cooperative learning card game, students practice matching input and output of linear functions given an equation and the input. Modeled after the traditional game "Old Maid," Old Math Guy requires students to take turns selecting cards from one another at random, looking for pairs, and hoping not to be stuck with the Old Math Guy card.

To play, first students deal out all of the cards. Then, without showing others the cards in their hands, students look for matching pairs of unfactored algebraic expressions and factored algebraic expressions. They put down any pairs in front of them face up so others can confirm that they have indeed found a match.

One player begins by holding their cards facing down in a fanned out fashion and offering their hand to the student to their left. If the receiving student gets a card that is a match with a card already in their hand they can put it down. Then the student who just took a card turns to the student on their left and allows them to select a card at random, etc.

There is one card that is the “Old Math Guy.” (Use either the color or black and white version.) The student who is stuck with this card after all other pairs are matched loses the game.

Included in this product:
-35 cards (17 pairs + Old Math Guy)
