I have used most of the mentioned websites at least once in my classes. I like the idea of using them as a Warm up to get the class started right away with Math discussion/justification in class.
I am planning on using Would you rather more in my College Algebra through Modeling class. I am hoping this will get the students more comfortable talk and justifying their math. This class is all based on the mathematical explanations to problems and not just the answer. This is a new concept for most students and they all come into this class with a very low skill set in how to do this. I feel the Would you rather math prompts are a good way to help students in this area.
I have not used two truths and a lie as math problem, I like the idea of having the students come up with their own problem.
