We used www.socrative.com in class on Friday to take a survey of true/false answers about potential solutions to algebra 1 equations. You know... 2x-3=7, does x=2 make this a true statement? After they all made a choice, I put a bar graph of their results on the big screen. We did this multiple times. It worked well, Socrative is very fast and they all were engaged. The next thing I'm going to try is a "Space Race" They will be in groups with a series of questions to answer. As they get an answer correct, their space ship makes a step towards the end. They will be able to watch everybody's space ship move and I think it will be fun.
