AP Calculus BC or Calculus 2 Fun Jeopardy Game
This fun, exciting activity is designed for College Calculus 2 and AP Calculus BC. It makes a great review. It was designed in PowerPoint 2003 and is compatible with all subsequent versions of PowerPoint. It is similar in style to my very popular Jeopardy for Calculus Part 1 for AP Calculus AB or Calculus 1.
The Topics include Techniques of Integration, Volume and Area, Sequences and Series, Infinity and Beyond, Polar - Parametric, and a Random category. Most topics from a typical Calculus 2 or AP Calculus BC are included. The game includes Round 1 and a Final Jeopardy Question. It took just under a 50 minute class period and my students (and administrator) loved it.
I divided the class into five groups, as I had purchased five toy light up phasers with sound at Target in their $3 section. You could use a bell, whistle, or a buzzer system, but I loved the phasers, and so did the kids. No one left the room until I had all five back. I didn't tell them what we were doing that day, just that it was a review, so they grouped themselves. I numbered the groups 1 – 5. As I opened the first screen, they were excited, but as the game progressed they got more excited and competitive. Interestingly enough my students started from the $500 categories, not the easier ones, but eventually got through all of them. I let them use their graphing calculators and gave them scrap paper, but no cheat sheets with formulas. I had two or three students from another class come in as helpers to keep score and call who buzzed first. For Final Jeopardy, I gave each group a new sheet of paper and a marker to write the “question.” Music plays on Final Jeopardy. They could bet whatever they wanted and for the group that was losing, I let them bet up to $2000 to make it interesting. Your choice here. Goody bags to the winners.
It is a fabulous activity as a review, and most importantly some students realized how much they needed to review. Since they chose their groups, there was a lot of camaraderie and support, and a lot of fun!! Some questions take longer than others because they have to do some work, so use your judgment on timing. Have fun!!!
