Self Paced BINGO


 Everybody loves a good game of bingo but add math and this fast paced game can become frustrating unless, you make it self paced.  

I love playing games in my classroom and my secondary students love games.  Bingo is a popular game however, the fast paced learners get frustrated with those who need more time, the slower paced learners get frustrated with the fast pace of the game, and I end up repeating myself too many times.  I started playing self paced bingo this year and it has gone amazing.  

How do you play self paced bingo?

You create a google slide with all of the problems on the bingo board.  After creating it you share it with your students.  Students answer the questions at their pace to create the pattern you decided for bingo.  Once students have made bingo they share their board with you.  This is quick to check as a teacher since all of the students have the same questions in the same position.  We have been playing self paced bingo as independent work and homework in my classroom.  The next day I put all the student's with correct bingo boards on a wheel and spin the wheel to see who is the winner of our bingo game.  

I've created some bingo boards already you can check them out at my store if you are interested.

Pixel Art with Math Problems

    A pixel art activity provides instant feedback and some excitement.  My students enjoy doing these because they can see right away if they are doing the work correct and they also like to race to figure out the picture first.    Integer Operations Add/Subtract Pixel Art This is an online activity where students complete addition and subtraction of integers. The students will input their answer in the table and a color will appear if they are correct. When the students are finished they will have a picture.   Distribute Equations Pixel Art This in an online activity that has students solve equations with the distributive property. Several of the equations also require knowledge of combining like terms after distributing. Students solve the problem and type the answer in the table, if they are correct a color will appear. When the table is filled they will have a picture. One Step Equations Pixel Art This activity is done online in Google Sheets. The students solve each equatio

Pixel Art Activities

    If you are looking for students to practice multiple concepts at once with instant feedback these 2 activities would be great. The first activity hast students write the equation of a line given 2 points.  They start by finding the slope, then the y-intercept, and finally writing the equation.  Each piece along the way will color the picture if they are correct.  I like this instant feedback because my student tend to get frustrated if they do all the work and then when I check it we realize their slope was wrong so they have to start at the beginning again. The second activity is on percent, decimals, and fractions.  This activity requires students to convert between the 3 along with making the fractions mixed numbers.  This is great for middle school classes to practice.  My students tend to struggle with which way to move the decimal so this instant feedback helps them check their answers as they go.   Writing Equations of a Line - Baby Yoda Pixel Art Percent, Decimal, Fraction
