Math Facts in a Line

by Sue Gumm
(Seneca, IL )

I have the students get into one line. If we are practicing multiplication facts, I have the first student say a number from 1 to 12. The second student in line then says a number from 1 to 12. The third student then has to give the product of the two numbers. If his answer is incorrect he sits and the next person in line has to give the correct answer.

When the correct answer is given the process starts again (the next two people in line stating numbers and the third giving the product).

The game is over when there is only one person left standing. I do not repeat any numbers given by the students, they have to pay close attention because it's easy to get lost.

I use this for addition, subtraction, and multiplication of whole numbers and integers. I also use it for least common multiple and greatest common factor.
