Game

Description:

This engaging online game from math-play.com works well as a whole class "guys vs. girls" competition or as a partner activity.  If teams answer correctly, they are given the chance to "shoot the ball."  It is more challenging than it looks!  If both teams are tied at the end, there is a sudden death shoot off.  My Algebra Intervention class last year (which was primarily at-risk students), BEGGED for this game.  I do recommend structuring the game to increase individual accountability.  When it was girls' turn, I gave pairs or trios adequate time to work on the problems before calling on a team at random.  Then one of the team members gets to come up to the interactive white board to "shoot the ball."
