Product Description
This is a fun game for students to play. There are 15 snow flakes on the main screen. Each snow flake links to a Pythagorean theorem problem students must solve. 7 problems are Pythagorean theorem word problems, the other 8 show a triangle and students must determine the length of a missing side. If using a smart board you can have students take turns touching the ornaments to reveal the question, or even have students throw a soft koosh ball at the board. Each problem slide has the problem, as well as a snow man in the top right corner. When a user clicks on the snow man, it will move over to reveal the answer to the problem. (This makes it easy to check students answers!) To return to the snow flake screen click the “back” gingerbread man. Once you have clicked a snow flake and solved the question, it will disappear from the main screen!

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 touch/throw a koosh ball at the snow flakes. Then, give each group time to solve the problem. If you prefer to have students solve the problems on their own piece of paper there is a recording sheet available on the next page.

Note: This may not work on a Mac due to the triggers in the program! Please make sure to try to the free preview PowerPoint before purchasing to make sure it will work for you!
