Mathionaire General Math Quiz

Thursday, November 18, 2010 · No Comments
Who Wants To Be A Mathionaire isn't unlike a lot of other mathematics games that ask students to answer questions and move through progressively more difficult problems until they reach the final goal or get too many wrong answers. What made tonight's experience different for me is that I saw Denise not let Logan just guess at the answers. She broke out the number line he had made at school and had him do the problems before selecting an answer. Since Who Wants To Be A Mathionaire isn't a timed game there wasn't any pressure on Logan to answer before a timer went off. There was still an element of reward though because each correct answer took Logan a step closer to becoming a "millionaire."
