I'm a math teacher who has taught Algebra 1, Algebra Support, Geometry, Algebra 2, Algebra 2 Support, and Statistics. Most of my materials focus on supporting Algebra 1 CCSS standards. This year, I am currently teaching Algebra 1+Support for a 2 period block every day, so I have 110 minutes with the same group of students. These are students who have typically never passed a math class before and range anywhere from freshmen to seniors (less than half of the class are freshman!). Needless to say, walking in to the first day of class, math wasn't their favorite subject. Additionally, a good handful of my students have a truly difficult home-life situation, so doing homework isn't a realistic option for them. To still provide the necessary practice that they need, utilizing very clear notes and frequent math games has been a pinnacle to my instructional style of this class. My students have responded so unbelievably well to these games, Bingo in particular, that I wanted to share them with anyone else who has some students who are reluctant to learn math. I have made similar games for my Geometry and Algebra 2 classes, and they have gone over equally well. Be warned, things can get quite heated during these games, and, in the words of my students, "Bingo is life!!!!!!!!!"
