To create a class game, split the class into teams. Select a player from each team to come to the front of the classroom and take a problem card. They must take their card back to their team and write a problem. The problem can either match the number sentence or it can be inaccurate. The problem cards can then be swapped with an opposing team's member. To earn a point for their team, they must decide if the problem matches the number sentence.
