Looking for a fun and collaborative way to practice calculating the percent of a number (e.g. what is 12% of 85)? You've found it.

Domino Effect is a collaborative game where groups of 3 - 4 students work together to find the solution to the current problem — which reveals the next problem. Students solve 16 problems per game. If the solution to the last problem matches the answer on the starting card, the team has correctly completed the activity!

This includes 2 difficulty levels of the game, with 32 problems in total.

What math skills does it practice?

The activity includes two difficulty levels of the following:

  • Level 1: Finding percent of a number. Example: What's 15% of 85
  • Level 2: Finding the whole, given the part and the percent. Example: 70% of ____ is 23

This activity includes two difficulty levels so that you can differentiate students, or play twice back-to-back to practice.

How do I set it up?

Print out one copy of our PDF per group (3 - 4 students), and then:

  1. Cut out and shuffle the 16 task cards
  2. Cut out & tape the game board together
  3. Place the starting card & play!
