## Reflection: High Quality Task Write A Different Fact Game - Section 2: Playing The Game

Playing math games can be one of the most rewarding math lessons. It is important to keep the game moving as quickly as possible, and placing students as judges will keep them engaged in their group even if they are not writing math facts.  They can become the fact experts and timekeepers for their groups.  Another option for engaging students is to keep the groups smaller so that there is less of a chance of students exiting the game.   It makes the game harder to win and all students are practicing their facts.
