Whose Math is it, Anyway?—EOC Review Game
Concept: Using the TV show, “Whose Line is it, Anyway?” as its premise, students will
create an Algebra review game.
As this is a group venture, each group is to be made of 3-4 students.
Each group member is responsible for their own work, and will be rated by the
other group members and teacher observation.
Each student is responsible for:
o Creating Two Algebra-Based (School Appropriate) Skits with rules
o Creating and acquiring materials, questions or props required
o Acting Out the skits (One Minute or less)
o Skits should involve using or describing math rules or concepts, and/or
working problems out on the board while performing skits.
o Example skits include: “Props”, “Weird Newscasters”, “Two-Line Vocabulary”,
“Number of Words”, “Part Quirks”, “Let’s Make a Date”, “Whose Line”,
“Questions Only”, “Questionable Impressions”, “Hats”, “Scenes from a Hat”,
“Greatest Hits”, “Song Styles”, “Film Styles”, “Hoedown”, “Three-Headed
Broadway Star”, “World’s Worst”, “The Millionaire Show”, and “Foreign Film
Dub”. All can be used or modified so that they are Algebra-centric.
The teacher acts as the facilitator/host.
