I include Warm ups with a Rubric as part of my daily routine. My goal is to allow students to work on Math Practice 3 each day. Grouping students into homogeneous pairs provides an opportunity for appropriately differentiated math conversations. This lesson’s Warm Up- Bingo Review asks students find two polynomial equations who both have the factor x - 2. It has been several months since the students have worked with polynomials so the goal of this warm up is to re-access that information in preparation for today's review.
Bingo is my favorite review game. It motivates each student to try each problem more than any other game that I have attempted. The goal for this game is for the students to review many of the important skills learned in this semester. I have randomized the order of the problems as this forces students to really think about each problem rather than follow the previous one (Math Practice 1).
The game board has all of the answers for the students to write on their game board. Since there are 32 problems and 25 spots, I tell the students to be careful not to just pick the first 25. I insist that they write each problem down to turn in for points at the end of the class.
Often I will give extra credit points to the first one or two people to get bingo. Then I move to two bingos, and then three.
This review was created using Kuta Software. I love this program and would highly recommend it to any mathematics teacher.
