Perfect for review and test preparation of six important skills in the domains of Number Sense and Ratios and Proportions. Operations with fractions, decimal, percents and ratios are reviewed. Perfect for a whole class activity or individual practice. As with any jeopardy-style game, students will work through a word problem and then check their work. Complete, step-by-step solutions are given rather than simply stating the answer. In the case of dividing by fractions, two solutions are given: using common denominators and multiplying by reciprocals. The multiplying by reciprocals solution involves using the Property of Multiplicative Identity and complex fractions to help students understand why “invert and multiply” works mathematically. This activity works well as a team competition. Using individual whiteboards, students can work out their solutions and present them to the teachers who awards points for each correct answer. I often award a small prize for the winner, such as skipping 1 homework problem or being first in line to exit the classroom.
This game includes 30 problems, covering the following skills:
Calculating with a Percent
Using Ratios with Similar Shapes
While these problems address grade six Common Core Standards, they also provide good mixed-space practice for building fluency in both grades seven and eight.
I sincerely wish that this product helps make your math mindful.
