1) Divide the class into two teams.
2) Although teams can work collaboratively, all players must write down and complete all problems.
3) The teacher presents one problem at a time. Both teams then attempt to collaborate and solve the problem.
4) After allowing time for collaboration, the teacher calls on one student from each team for the answer. If this student has the correct answer with all work, then their team gets to pick from the Math Football Plays hat.
i. Extra Point: I have constructed goal posts out of PVC pipe in my class room (see: Goal Posts) the player who scored the touchdown has the option to kick a paper football through the uprights for one point
ii. Two Point Conversion: The team can opt to try for a two point conversion problem (high level of difficulty). Both teams attempt to solve the problem, even though the only team that can receive the points is the team who scored.
After the score, the team returns their marker to the 20 yard line and starts another drive.
At the end of the game, I like to give the students the opportunity to ask any clarifying questions over the problems that they saw during the game. Usually I get no more than one or two questions, but either way I like to close by asking the students to list at the board the top 3 most difficult concepts from the unit we were reviewing. Poll Everywhere is also a great site for gathering student feedback, instead of constructing the responses at the whiteboard.
Good luck, and happy reviewing!
Note: I remind the students as they head out the door to bring their iPad to class tomorrow because they will be allowed to use it on one portion of the test. If the students forget their iPad, however, I do send them back to their locker to get it - and we begin the test without them. (The funny thing about 1-1 technology, however, is that the students NEVER forget it.)
