Math Gloooooooory!

Try this math review game and let me know how it works.

Here are the rules:
- The game will proceed one round at a time
- Each round will last 8–n minutes where n is the number of the round of the game (e.g. the first round will be 7 minutes, the second 6 minutes)
- Each round will consist of one problem to solve
- The game officials walk around the room only to check answers (no help will be given, only confirmation or denial of solutions)
- Students are grouped into teams
- As soon as everyone in a team has the solution written down in completion, all members of that group raise their hands
- The solution will be checked by the official(s)
- Every group who gets the correct solution will be rewarded with 1 point
- The group who finishes first will be rewarded 2 points
- The team who has the most points at the end of 7 rounds wins the prize!

BONUS:
- Let students pick team names
- Offer one get out of homework free token as the prize
- Try different timing schemes for different complexity of units to review

Haha, I've copied it and will try it out before an upcoming test--I'll try to remember to let you know how it goes!
