How to Play Math Bingo

  • Each player gets a bingo card.
  • Decide who the caller will be.  The caller is responsible for calling the bingo questions and is not a player in the game.  So the most likely person to be the caller is either the teacher or parent.
  • The caller should remind each player to cover their Free Space with one of their markers.
  • The caller will have a pre-made list of math questions related to whatever math topic the bingo game is covering.  The caller reads off one question at a time and allow the players to put their markers on one of the squares on their card if the answer matches.
  • If a player does not have a number on their card that is the answer to the question, they do not put a marker down for that question.
  • Play continues until someone has placed 5 markers across a row of their card, down a column of their card, or across a diagonal.  The first player to mark off one of these patterns is the winner of the game.
  • After a player has declared to be the winner, the caller should Check the winner's card to make sure the player actually put markers down on the answers that match the questions that were called out.  If all their answers check, congratulations are in order.
  • As soon as they have put their last marker down, they should stand up and say “BINGO!”
  • Continue playing if you desire to have more than one winner.  This is a way to have multiple winners.  Just continue the game as above while the first winner waits for the next game.
