I am not familiar with the specific math test to which you refer, but any
basics review requires motivation at this time of year. Try to do some games
like "football." Divide the class into two groups. Have the students choose a
captain for each side. Get an overhead or posterboard football field. Make
cards with names like Pass, Field Goal, Run. Have different yardages that are
equivalent to difficulty of questions. Team Captains choose who gets to play
and calls the play. EVERY person on the team has to have a turn before ANYONE
can repeat a turn.  Also, everyone must work the problems at his/her desk.
Say Captain Bob says that Cassie will do a medium pass. You choose a card and
a problem for 8 yds. Cassie misses the answer. Then one person from Team A
and one from Team B go around and check for correct answers on opposing
teams. If Team A has more correct answers than Team B, than Team A gets the
yardage. If Team B has more, Team B has blocked the play and Team A is on 2nd
down. Just like football, a team has 4 downs to get 10 yards. You can also
use the time in between plays to review or reteach a concept!

There are many other kinds of games. You might want to check out the
www.enc.org for other lesson and project ideas!
