Product Description
Cylinders, Cones, and Spheres Volume Review
DOTs Volume cooperative activity contains two versions of dots game sheets, a student score sheet, and teacher key. This is geared for middle school pre-algebra students, along with special education or as a review for high school students. One version has problems students solve from shapes, the other is word problems.
Students will play a friendly game of Dots and Boxes while problem solving. It is a fun and challenging task to see who can own the most boxes. Strategic and entertaining way to practice and review!

Directions:
Players take turns by joining two vertical or horizontal adjacent dots by a line. They continue to do this until one of them completes the fourth side of the square, owning the box. That player solves the problem, if correct earns one point. That player initials the box, and gets to go again. When all the boxes have been complete, the game ends. Both players tally up their points, the player with the most points wins.

Suggestions:
While teacher circulates the room, students raise their hand when their answers need checked. Teacher/teacher assistants check answer, if correct, player initials box, and records points.
If student is incorrect, their partner can try to own the box! If other player get problem correct, they initial, get the points, and take the next turn.

Compete against each other in small teams, not just partners.

Each player or team uses a different color to make their lines and initials.

Game Twist:
It is possible to make two squares (boxes) at one time, when this happens the same rules apply. The player just needs to complete two problems and has the possibility of getting all the points for both problems. In turn, the other player has the possibility to own one or both of the boxes!
