This is a jeopardy game that includes these categories: solving one step and multiple step equations, solving equations with variables on both sides, problem solving and decimals, and formulas, ratios, rates, & percents.
Break class into 3 teams (or more) and one student from each team will begin. A student selects the category and the amount of points. Click that item and the 1st team that buzzes in answers. If correct, the next person from that team will select a category and points and the 2nd members will try to answer the question. If the 1st group that buzzed in misses I allow for the other 2 teams to answer that question. The first team loses points while the 2nd team scores. There are double jeopardy and final jeopardy. Winners get a prize.
