A great way to practise multiplication.
Shoot the basketball at the basket that contains the correct answer to the multiplication question. But hurry! Players only have twenty seconds to aim for the highest score they can attain! And if their aim isn’t true, the ball can bounce right out of the basket and miss!
Given basketball’s already competitive nature, it is not difficult to create a group game out of this by separating the class into teams, with each team aiming to get the highest score possible within twenty seconds. They can even create their own team names, for added creativity and fun! However, the game also keeps track of the top five highest points of all the players who had played it within the day. Are the teams good enough to defeat the highest score of the day, made by someone who can possibly be across the country, or even the ocean? Who will be crowned as basketball champions of the day? Let’s find out!
Allow your students to reveal the hidden picture by matching the equations to the side with the boxes containing their corresponding answer. But beware, for they should also take note that they should follow a certain operational order when performing their calculations; otherwise, they would not be able to match the boxes correctly!
There are a number of ways to convert this into a team game. The teacher can opt to time each group to see how long it would take for them to reveal the mystery picture – the group with the fastest time wins. Alternatively, each group could be given a set time to reveal as many hidden pictures as they can, with the team revealing the most winning the game. Another possible option is that the groups could take turns in revealing a box and then attempting to guess what is hidden underneath; the group that makes the first correct guess wins.
A math challenge that can be played by many different levels, Math Fact Practice pits students against the clock as they try to answer as many addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division problems as possible.
Teachers are provided with many customization options at the beginning of the game, depending on their students’ education level and how difficult they want the math questions to be. To add a further challenge, they may also opt to divide the class into two or more groups with representatives; whomever gets the most correct answers within the given time wins the game.
At the end of the game, aside from reporting how many numbers were answered, teachers are also presented with the students’ average computation speed for every operator, helping them adjust their teaching accordingly.
Though this powerpoint smartboard multiplication game is not free, it is well worth every cent. It tells a story of a tired king who devises an experiment to get his kingdom of monsters to get along with each other. Your students follow the story along and in the process learn how to multiply 2-digit numbers. What a great way to learn!
The target will tell you what to add up and you will need to shoot the corresponding fruit. Multiplication, addition, subtraction and division can all be revised with this game. Is your team better than the other?
This is a fun way to revise time tables with the whole class.
Students line up in front of the smartboard in two lines. The question appears on the bottom of the smartboard game. Lots of balloons will start popping up on the team’s side, and the students will have to find the right balloon to pop.
Whoever gets the most questions right after a certain amount of time wins.
