Say the word 'Bingo' and kids of all ages go crazy. At least, my 8th graders do! We play a lot of Bingo in different ways as part of our math practice routine. Sometimes we play as a whole class, but often we play independently so everyone can work at their own speed. Practicing solving systems is one of those perfect topics for independent Bingo!
How to prep and play:
1) Print all 12 problem cards as many times as necessary to ensure each student can have 2-3 problems to themselves at a time. (These can be printed back to back to make distributing to more students easier.)
2) Distribute cards to students. They work out problems on scratch paper, or lined paper to turn in.
3) When students get five in a row, they come up to get their Bingo checked. There is only one possible Bingo, so any other lines filled means the student has at least one incorrect answer on that line.
I like to pair this game with Systems of Equations Clue to give my kids a full day of practice review before our test on this unit. From the feedback I get, they really enjoy getting to practice this way.
