Math is SO much fun when you can use it to play a game, especially a popular TV game like Jeopardy! I want to be able to create a Math Jeopardy game in my classroom to help students review for their high-risk Standardized test in April. I will come up with the categories and questions, but I need supplies for the students to play the game. The students will be broken up into teams and each given a mini-dry erase board, mini-dry eraser, and a dry erase marker to record what they think the answers are to the questions. I will have an easily visible timer in the front of the room to allow the students to see the time remaining for them to offer their answer. It will be fabulous and fun! Test preparation is a very stressful time for my students and it would mean so much to them and to me to be able to make test preparation fun. Even after the tests, I hope to continue using the Math Jeopardy materials to review math topics they will need for 8th grade. Please consider funding this proposal to help my students better retain their math knowledge so that not only will they perform well on their high risk standardized tests, but they will see that math is fun!
