Great Cooperative Problem Solving Game

Posted on April 1, 2015. Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: , |


Read about it here!  

Step 1: Students sit in a group of 4 -5.  They have 4-8 math problems on index cards face down in front of them.

Step 2: The Caller “Picks a problem.”

Step 2: Everybody writes out the answer on their whiteboards and then places their individual boards face down in front of them.

Step 3: Caller says “Show what you know!”

Step 4: Everybody shows their answer.  If everybody got it right, the group gets a point and the card is taken out of the pile.

Step 5: For the next turn,  a new person becomes the caller and play continues.

*I would scaffold this by sometimes letting students talk about what they wrote before they put their boards down.

Happy Mathing,

Dr. Nicki
