This game has been going around quite a bit recently, it is awesome. Here is one link to the rules, http://exponentialcurve.blogspot.com/2009/12/review-game-trashketball.html I tried it yesterday. I used Infinite Algebra to generate a sheet with five similar problems. I put them on the document camera and each group worked on their number problem. Each student had a whiteboard and I called one individual student numbers to have one person from each group display their work. Each group got 5 points for a correct answer and then they got a chance for bonus points by throwing a wadded paper into the recycle bin from a 1, 2 or 3 point line (their choice). I had four sets of problems ready, it took about 20 minutes. They were all engaged and it was fun.
