*Powerpoint Required to Play*
Your students will have a BLAST reviewing math skills playing this Math Review Edition of Jeopardy.
Everything is READY-TO-GO! No Prep work needed! All of the slides are connected to the main panel. The points on the main panel changes color to show it has been chosen. 2 Double Jeopardy questions play music, as does the opening page and the Final Jeopardy question...so be sure to have your volume turned up =)
The 5 categories include:
Numbers & Base-Ten (NBT)
Operations & Algebraic Thinking (OA)
Class Rules for Jeopardy:
Students are broken up into 2 teams.
1. Every member of a team must have the chance to answer a question.
2. At the front of the room, there will be two desks. Each team must send up one member to compete in answering a question.
*(Students not at the 2 desks STILL try to solve the problem in their own notebooks!)
3. The two team members will each sit in one of the desks at the front of the room.
4. Each team will alternate to choose the category and the amount.
5. The teacher will use a random method (pick a number, coin toss) to determine which team will be the first to choose the category and the amount.
6. Once a category and an amount have been chosen, the teacher will read the question.
7. The first of the two students to “buzz in” (hit the desk, ring the bell provided) first will have the first chance to give his/her answer.
8. If a team member does not give the correct answer, that team will lose the points assigned to that question.
*(You may choose to deduct the points. I just don't give the points)
10. Each team will send up a member and continue to compete until all of the questions have been answered.
11. At the end, each team will determine how much they would like to wager on Final Jeopardy. The team will write this amount onto a piece of paper and hand it to the host (teacher).
*(I usually choose a team captain. Captains can discuss this with their team but ONLY the captain gives the final wager decision to the host)
12. The teams will be able to listen to the question, confer as a team, and then write their answer on a piece of paper. They will have one minute after the question has been read to hand in their answer.
*(I give a few more seconds after the music stops)
14. The host will re-read the question, both answers, and declare a winner!
