DESCRIPTION

Students roll 2 dice to determine which problem to work. The problems are listed in a hotlinked table in the powerpoint presentation. Students identify the slope and/or the y-intercept of a linear function. The game moves quickly until all squares have been selected.TRANSCRIPT

Slope Intercept Race

Slope Intercept Race

Materials:•Powerpoint Gameboard•Poster of Gameboard or Draw on Whiteboard to keep score•Number Cube (1 – 6)•Letter Cube (A – F)

Directions1. Divide the students into teams (2 to 4 teams will work … or have students play against the teacher.) 2. Choose a team to go first. That team rolls both dice, which designates a square on the problem grid. 3. Randomly choose 1 student from that team to answer the question. 4. If the answer is correct, the team “owns” that square, and it is marked off the grid. If not, the other team (or next team if you have more than 2) has an opportunity to guess correctly and gain ownership. 5. Play rotates until all squares are taken or time expires.6. If a team rolls a square that is already “owned,” they lose their turn and play goes to the next team.7. The team with the most squares wins.
