- Place students into groups from 2-4 (I used four).
- Note the smaller your group size, the more numbers you will need.
- Create a Google spreadsheet with numbers 1-100 (for groups of 4), add more numbers for smaller groups. Share the spreadsheet to your class LMS (Google Classroom, Haiku, Edmodo, etc).
Here is a link to my spreadsheet: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1-Il4PYaPyxudVm3gE9X8aZ04SEHlbUaplrbo3trXLu4/edit?usp=sharing
Note, this was created in Google sheets, you will only be able to view if you have a Gmail account. Otherwise, I’ve attached a pdf if you don’t have a Google Mail account.
- If you don’t have devices, you could print out the spreadsheet and have them hand write in their group name or one name from their group. Only one entry per group.
- Problem Set – I stopped with 1 minute left in class to pick a winner. You will need enough problems to fill all but one minute of your class period.
- To draw a random number, I projected this on my smartboard and drew in front of the class.

- Solve a problem and have it checked with your teacher.
- Choose one number and type a group name or one of your names in column B of the spreadsheet. Only one entry per problem solved.
- Keep repeating steps one and 2 until you have solved all problems.
- If there is already a name in column B for a number you want to choose, you have to choose a different number.
