This was posted by another member and he would like some feedback on his ideas....... I was told by a teacher friend about the original Mad Minute. So I decided to do a little research, and found the original mad minute was in 1983. So I decided to do a bit of tweaking. Here are the rules The students are split into two teams. Each team receives one sheet of problems. When the teacher says BEGIN, a five minute clock is started...student one on each team begins working on problem one. After that student is done, the sheet is passed down and the procedure repeated. Each team goes 3x around (This may vary depending on class size. I generally get as close to 30 problems on one sheet as possible (ex. if you have 12 students you break it down 12/6 then 6x5= 30 and that works out even...In other words for 12 students number the problems 1-6 and have the students go 5x around.)) No conferring between teammates until the end. If there is time left on the clock, teammates check the answers. If sheets are handed in before the time limit expires, the team cannot take it back to continue to work on it. Most correct answers win.
