ANSWER KEY INCLUDED!!!
Do you love playing team trivia with friends? Me too! Let’s give our students the same experience while reviewing key math concepts.
How to Play:
Team Trivia is played in 3 rounds. Each round has three questions. The first round have point values available in five (5), three (3), and one (1). You can use these point values in any order and apply them to your answers, but you can only use each point value once per round. The 2nd and 3rd round have point values available is six (6), four (4), and two (2). Again, these values can only be used once in each round.
The bonus question typically will have unlimited correct answers, and each correct answer by the team will give them one (1) point for up to five (5) points.
The final question teams can wager up to 15 points or wager up to their current total score. That part is up to you!
Objective: For students to show mastery in solving one-step equations in small groups.
Write team names on score sheet before starting (you can a give a theme!)
Have teams send a representative to collect 11 answer slips before starting
Set a time limit for each question or do a 10 second count-down for submitting the answer slip
Keep all answer slips incase a group challenges their score – it will happen!
If the class ends before the game ends, keep the score sheet to know where to start the next class
I bundle remaining answer slips with the rubber band to keep for next time
Only accept fully correct answers: x = 15 is not the same as x = -15
If possible, limit group size to 4
Update team standings/scores at the end of each round
You may edit the equations and change the answers to best fit the needs of your students
