PLAY TIC TAC TOE OR MIX AND MATCH
- Pair students up
- Player X chooses a spot of their choice. Both players must write the equation that corresponds to the problem. The X player will need to explain their thinking. If the O player agrees, the X player will claim that spot. If incorrect, the X player will not be able to claim that spot
- Player O will then choose another spot of their choice and repeat.
*If no one wins TIC TAC TOE, continue to play until all of the spots are claimed and winner will be the player with the most number of spots claimed.
For MIX and MATCH: follow this same format but add on the component of matching their answer with the equation card (this allows for self checking)
Use the equation cards and make students write their OWN PROBLEMS that match the equation!
