PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a fun game for students to play. There are 25 footballs on the main screen. Each football links to a Pythagorean theorem problem. Each problem has a “find the missing length” problem, as well as a point value cloud. When a user clicks on the point value cloud it will move over to reveal the answer to the problem -- students will round to the nearest tenth. (This makes it easy to check students answers!) I have also included a sheet that has each answer for the teacher to print out and look at.
Once a football has been clicked, it will disappear from the screen and can not be clicked again.

To play this game I suggest dividing students into 3-5 small groups. Then, give each group a white board (or other device) to record answers on. Allow someone from each group to go to the front of the room, to click on a football. Then, give each group time to simplify the expression. The groups that simplify correctly earn however many points the question was worth!

I have included this game as 2 different PowerPoint presentations to accommodate those with different versions. It is available as a PowerPoint 97-2003 show, or as the newest version of PowerPoint. Please click "preview" to see a free preview of the game before purchase. The preview is saved as a PowerPoint version 97-2003 Show

This game can also be played with a koosh ball! Students would simply take turns throwing a koosh ball underhand at the smart board. When they hit a football, the question will pop up!

******Note: This product is included in my Pythagorean Theorem Activity Bundle, along with a color by number page, and a maze. It can be viewed here: Pythagorean Theorem Bundle
