I was surprised to find out that my junior high students did not know answers to everyday questions that had numbers for answers, such as "How many days are in a leap year?" I asked my children at home, who were in higher level math classes (calculus), and they did not know the answers to these questions either. I created these quizzes to help students become more aware of the numbers around them. This set of questions include 10 different topics There are 10 questions for each topic.
Use this activity as a class opener. Students answer the questions individually. You may ask and discuss one or two questions daily for each topic or cover one topic on 10 different days.
