Reviewer Comments:

This fun website features a math vocabulary Jeopardy game for one or two students to play. It has 25 questions in the topics of Number Sense, Measurement, Data Analysis, and Mixed Vocabulary. While most of the answers are obvious, some of the Measurement questions are vague and don’t give the students enough information to answer them correctly. For example, the answer to the question, “What type of measurement would you need in order to measure a fence?” is “perimeter.” Not every fence is a closed shape and a student could answer yards or meters and be partially correct. Overall, this is a fun practice activity. If students were provided with a list of words from which to choose, it would be easier for anyone who is not in the contributor’s classroom to be successful with this game.
