New on MathsStarters… Bingo!

Saturday, 09 June 2012 | 0 Comments

I reckon Maths Bingo is a great starter, ender or in-betweener…

This bingo lets you use it over and over, each time you load a game the questions are randomly generated.

Here’s how to use this in your classroom:

  • The easiest way is to have students draw a three-by-three grid as the first step. Alternatively, download and photocopy the PDF on the teacher’s page
  • Bingo - MathsStarters - AnswersStudents fill their grid with 9 of the 16 answers shown on the screen (first screenshot)
  • Bingo - MathsStarters - QuestionsStart the game, showing one question at a time. Students mark off their grid if they have the answer (second screenshot)
  • If a students calls “bingo”, the teacher can check pressing the “Check so far” button

Try it out, let me know if you have any suggestions or find a bug.

I saw the idea for this form of bingo on TES, Ratio Bingo contributed by “Zebfriedman”.

See the small link at the bottom of the Bingo page for a beta version. The beta allows me to write some proper maths notation, e.g. fractions, but seems to have an issue in Internet Explorer 8.
