This fun activity is designed for College Calculus 1, AP Calculus AB, BC, or Honors Calculus. It makes a great review.
The Topics include Limits, Derivatives, Integration, Applications, Random, and Famous. I included Round 1 and a Final Jeopardy Question. It took just under a 50 minute class period and my students (and principal) loved it.
I divided the class into five groups, as I had purchased five toy light up with sound phasers 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 many realized how much they didn't know and/or how slow they were. But since they chose their groups, there was a lot of camaraderie and support, and a lot of fun!!
