“Can you guess which one?“ - Mixed Sampler I - Task Cards
consists of 12 separate task cards each with 4 different expressions to simplify. All four are carefully created to look very different at first, but with simplification three of the four expressions are identical, or equivalent
, in value while only one is different. The fourth appears to be similar only if the student makes a mistake in simplification.
This game can induce great class discussions and leaves a lasting impression that helps students to further develop their understanding of each math topic and the rules that govern them. It also strives to build the base math skill of recognizing equivalence
, a key concept necessary to be successful in high school math and beyond.
A fully interactive version of “Can you guess which one?“
- Exponents I is available. It was the inspiration that led me to create 15 more titles in this 16 game series.
Each full version game comes in three formats: (this is NOT a full version, it only contains printable Task Cards / Worksheet options)
Smart Notebook, Power Point and pdf
, all of which are highly interactive.
In any format, it is a great way to teach, reinforce or review a topic. Its informal yet challenging approach creates an atmosphere of excitement where students want to uncover the answer rather than feeling that it is just another set of mundane problems to solve.
There are sixteen print version games available (see free sampler for links) and sixteen full version games in this series (listed below) that can be purchased separately or in one of the bundles.
