## PowerPoint Games

Here are some wonderful game templates (for PowerPoint) where all you need to do is input your own Q and A. These are templates for Jeopardy, Who Wants to be a Millionaire, Hollywood Squares and more.

Or instead of creating a review game for your students, why not have your students create their own. This would make a great end of the year project – assign pairs of students different units. Try and assign students the units you know they had a little trouble with. That way, they get a little extra review in before those dreaded exams, and on top of that, when the projects are turned in, you should have enough different review games for the rest of the year! And if you’re lucky, you may just get some that are keepers for future years as well!

## Linear Inequalities – Online Activities

For the Classroom

Inequalities Demo
See how slope, y-intercept and inequality symbol changes the shaded area of a linear inequality. Mr. Kibbe’s Linear Inequalities.

## End of Year Review (Algebra) – Online Activities

For the classroom

Algebra Bits
Jeopardy 1
Jeopardy 2
Very nice Jeopardy Power Point. However, it doesn’t seem to keep track of which questions have already been used, but maybe it was because I wasn’t using IE.

For the classroom or Students

Jefferson Lab
Virginia State SOL
Multiple choice, Virginia SOL question bank.

## Data and Graphs – Online Activities

For the classroom

Circle Graphs
Thirteen Ed Online
Here is a ready-made online worksheet for circle graphs. Work can be done on a piece of paper, but students need to use computers to access the online graph and article.

Graphing Review
Bitesize: Frequency diagrams.
Fun video/interactive review lesson. Frequency chart, circle graph, line graph and pictogram. Do the 10 question quiz to finish.

Graphing Review 2
Bitesize: Handling data
Line graphs, bar graphs, constructing circle graphs. 10 question quiz includes scatterplots and pictograms.
Interactive lesson.

## Linear Equations – Online Activities

For the classroom

Graphing Point-Slope
IXL
Given a point and slope, graph the line. Simple, clean graphing program good for student work on the board.

Identifying Slope-Intercept
Recognizing Slope and Y-Intercept
Identify slope and y-intercept from an equation. All in slope-intercept form. Good for a mini checkpoint quiz.

Slope Investigations
Move the points around to see how the slope and graph of a line is affected. Mr. Kibbe’s Slope Demo

Slope and y-intercept Investigations
See how slope and y-intercept affect the graph of a line. Mr. Kibbe’s Slope and y-intercept demo.

Writing slope-intercept Equations
Kind of like Line Gems (for students), in that students write the equations that will go through the most points, but I like the cleaner look and feel of this one: Mr. Kibbe’s Slope Game.

For students

Writing slope-intercept equations
Line Gems
Write the equation of the line that will go through the most gems.

Writing slope-intercept equations
Algebra vs. the Cockroach
Write the equation of the line that will exterminate the roaches.

## Probability and Statistics – Online Activities

For the classroom

Measures of Central Tendency
Bitesize: Mean, Median, Mode and Range.
A fun video/interactive review lesson. Finish with the 10 question quiz.

## Transformations – Online Activities

For the classroom

Congruence, Translations, Reflections & Rotations
BBC – Bitesize: Introduction to Transformations Interactive lesson. Click on Activities for lesson. Do the 5 question “Test” when done.

## Sumdog – Another Good Math Game Site

From ordering decimals to the distributive property, this site has wonderful games that students will probably end up playing on their own time at home. I found this site on a lazy Sunday afternoon and was surprised to see a lot of students logged in and playing!

Sumdog

I played the games signed in as “guest,” but teachers can upload student lists and even get progress reports of student activity (this part requires a subscription). But the games are free, so even if you don’t plan on subscribing, I’d encourage you to introduce the students to the site.

## Percent – Online Activities

For the classroom

Find the final sales price
Percent 1: Press “the games,” then “Age 10″ and finally, “Percentages 1.” This game gives you a price, the percent discount and students must calculate final sale price. (Prices are in pounds).

Find the original or final price or percent of discount
Percent 2: Press “the games,” then “Age 11″ and then “Percentages 2.” This game gives you two of the following: price, %discount, final price and students calculate the missing piece of information. (Prices are in pounds).
