- Lesson Plan:
- The students work in groups, as teams competing in Jeopardy. Select a student at random (i.e., from a seating chart) to start the game by selecting a category and an amount. After the question is revealed to the students, students work individually to solve the problem, and as a team verify that the solution is correct. Solutions are submitted to the teacher, and all correct solutions receive the point value attributed to the problem. Continue in this manner for the desired amount of time/points.
