Math Frenzy is a game I use in my classroom to help students develop higher-level thinking, problem solving, perseverance, and a love for math. Students race against the clock to write the most entertaining word problem that follows specific rules (determined by pulling cards or rolling dice-Both are provided!!!). When time is up, students share their problems with the class for their peers to solve. Students strive to create "expert level" questions while making their peers giggle.

-It can be adapted (on the spot) to students' abilities, interests, and learning styles.
