Who doesn’t love BINGO!? Polynomial Bingo is the best! Characteristics of polynomials is such a basic skill and the depth of knowledge is pretty shallow. Playing this game along with them was a fun and a great way to get them to practice and recognize them on the spot.
Funny story: I had a student raise her hand and say, “I think I got BINGO.” Of course, I’m over here like you either got Bingo or you didn’t! Her neighbor was like well you have to put a chip on your free space. And she was so sweet and said I’ve never played Bingo before. Sometimes I take for granted such American things. This little girl is an Asian immigrant who has been here awhile but not long enough to have ever played Bingo and I just overlooked that there was a possibility that I would need to explain the rules. Moral of the story: Be better.
