These interactive math quizzes are created using GeoGebra.com.

## Merits of the interactive quizzes:

First you don’t need to think up questions and second you don’t need to mark.

- Questions are randomized, giving students their own individual set of questions that fall within predictable parameters of difficulty;
- The practice quiz is built with the same code as the quiz: types of question can be reviewed in the practice quiz;
- The practice quiz has no specified end. Students think in terms of ‘do I know how to do this yet?’ rather than ‘am I finished?’;
- Mistakes are essential in learning – the practice quiz is there for students to exhaust all of their mistakes;
- Quizzes usually provide two or three attempts on quiz questions which gives students the opportunity to self correct.
- The final screen on the quiz shows the student score;
- The teacher can ‘pause’ and ‘resume’ any quiz;
- Since every set of quiz questions is different from every other set, there is meaningful learning in retaking the quiz.

## Assign through google classroom or with a link

To review a quiz, click the practice link and go ahead.

On every geogebra.org activity there is a button top right to post directly to your google classroom as a lesson and another button to create a lesson link if not using google classroom. Use one of these buttons and follow the instructions to assign to your class. A geogebra account is required. Geogebra is free for classroom/learning use.

## In the classroom

It takes more than a good activity to make a good lesson. To use these quizzes effectively in the classroom, here are some recommendations:

- Require that students have notepaper, pen and calculator beside the laptop. Students often like to go ‘brain-to-chromebook’ . However for most students ‘brain-
*to-paper*-to-chromebook’ forms learning. (Not all – there’s probably one kid who *will* do much better and be much happier without the paper)
- For students in math courses that lead to math at university, these quizzes are a good stepping stone to a traditional paper and pencil test.
- On any quiz there’ll probably be a student who insists that the computer is wrong and they are right. From time to time there might be an answer entry problem (incorrect rounding is number one). Usually the student has an error in their work that can be figured out. This is excellent learning in troubleshooting. If you do find a real live mistake, I’d appreciate if you email tentotwelvemath@outlook.com.
