**Leap Frog**

Materials needed:

One set of games cards for each student

Graphs

One set of questions

Basic Directions:

Have students arrange their game cards on their desks

Ask questions from the set of question cards, directing students to hold up the most complete correct answer

Students who answer incorrectly will remain in their seats

Students who answer correctly will proceed to the next available seat, "leap frogging" over the students who were incorrect

Play continues until a student returns to his/her original seat

The set I posted above covers vocabulary associated with function behavior. Additional applications include:

Create student game cards containing appropriate vocabulary words or math terms, reading the definitions to the students

Create student game cards with various numbers that work as solutions to equations you ask them to solve

Create student game cards with common trigonometric values on them, and then ask students to evaluate trigonometric expressions.

Ideally, the problems can be done quickly with a minimal amount of pencil-to-paper work.

If you are pressed for time (or your classroom layout doesn't really accommodate the "leap-frogging") you can just make one set of game cards for each group and have them hold up the correct answer in the group. Then just award points for each correct answer.
