Title: Half Court Shot
Description:

Half-Court Rounding is a game in which students try to score as many points as possible by rounding numbers to the nearest ten, hundred, or tenth. Students can try any kind of shot within the game and have 90 seconds to score as many points as possible and beat their opponent. If they answer incorrectly, the student misses the shot. Students can also choose a two-player game where they can play a friend or classmate.
