**Math Olympics**By Kristin Hilsabeck**Math Olympics**Have students create a math game that reviews past or chapter material. In a list of requirements, include specific topics and areas you want the students to review.**Math Scavenger Hunt**Students must solve the problem or equation at the bottom of the paper. Once solved, the students find the answer on the top of a different sheet of paper then solve the question at the bottom. Students must solve all problems until they return to the equation were they started.**Rules For Math Scavenger Hunt**• Equations are placed around the classroom • Students must show all work in order to receive full credit • Students can work in pairs • Students must go in order of the equations**Topics That Must Be Included In This Project**• Parametric Equations • Trigonometric Equations • Matrices • Natural Logs**Example**M,n,mn,mn 1 kjlkjljlk 5.4931 mnm Write the parametric equation for the line 9x + y = -1 The determinant of -1 4 is 2 -3 5 x = t. y = -9t - 1 Evaluate the expression ln 243 Simplify the equation cos x csc x tan x**Variations of Math Scavenger Hunt**• Combine math and physical education and have the answer include some type of activity in the elementary level. • For example: Q: 4 x 2 = A: 8 jumping jacks**Grading**Students can be graded on the following in Math Olympics: • Creativity • Degree of Difficulty • Participation • Following Directions • Presentation**Extra Grades**You can use the activities the students present in your lesson plans through out the year and count them as extra homework or quiz grades**TEKS for Math Olympics**Basically any of the TEKS can be covered in this project depending on your specific requirements for the topic areas.
