Maths Trivia

A while back I had one of those days where there were a whole heap of things happening in the school that my students were involved in, so my 45 minute class with 34 students was reduced to 30 minutes with 10 kids. Rather than teach new content that I would have to re-teach I decided to give my students (and myself) the afternoon off and play a maths trivia quiz!

I made up some maths trivia questions, grabbed some lollies for prizes, and we had a tonne of fun getting really competitive.


They did make me feel incredibly old when not one student could answer the question “The quote “the limit does not exist” is from which movie?” – and even when I told them only 2 had seen the movie!
