High School Math Games

Instructor: Shelby Golden
Help make learning mathematics interesting for your high school students with these fun games. You can explore different activities and find out more about additional learning resources.

Math Bingo

This game can be adapted to focus on all kinds of math problems, including algebra and geometry. Before class, you must create bingo sheets filled with the answers to 24 unique mathematics problems and one free space in the center. Each student should get a sheet and some kind of markers to use for their answers. You will then read, or write, a math problem for them to solve. The first student to get the solution gets to mark their sheet. The student who completes a full line first wins the game.

Round Trip

This game requires flashcards with math problems on them. You can customize the problems to whatever mathematical concept you're teaching. You will need to have all your students stand up. The first student stands beside the student behind them, and you will show both of them the same problem. The first student to get the right answer gets to move forward and compete with the next student. If a student can make it all the way around the room, that student can face you!

The Great Escape

You can play this game at the end of the day to entice students with the thought of getting out early. Students line up and must answer three of your mathematics questions before they can leave. If they get one wrong, they have to go to the back of the line, but students that get all three right get to leave class early.

Additional Learning Resources

Your students can find additional opportunities to study and learn with courses. These courses focus on reinforcing the mathematical skills and concepts you're covering in your classroom. Students can view short video lessons and practice applying their math skills with interactive quizzes and tests.

You can assign the following courses to your students:
