Math Bowl is a new series that I have created to help keep your students "on a roll" in math! (Cheesy, I know!) In this activity, students compete against each other either individually or with a partner as they work to solve word problems. The objective of this game is for students to achieve a “strike” (knock down all of the bowling pins). The best part about this resource is that it is self correcting!
This resource includes 10 Task Cards. Students will practice the skill of using Pythagorean Theorem to determine the missing side length of right triangles. 7 problems are skills based and 3 task cards are word problems. Answers are provided on the bowling pins for students to cross out (aka "knock down") as they solve each problem. If you want to make it competitive for students, the first person that achieves a strike is the winner.
Instructions/Ideas for Implementation
8.7 Expressions, equations, and relationships. The student applies mathematical process standards to use geometry to solve problems. The student is expected to:
(C) use the Pythagorean Theorem and its converse to solve problems
