Lesson Summary

Create a quiz that demonstrates your knowledge of math.
Introduction
In this lesson, students will play a quiz game and answer questions on various math topics (i.e., factors, square roots, order of operations). Next, students will follow a step-by-step tutorial in the DIY (do-it-yourself) module to create their own version of the quiz game they just played. They will customize the background, use variables and messages to ask questions, and include animations and other effects to enhance the quiz game. Note: Variables are an important part of keeping track of a game’s state. For example, if a student wants to program their game to check if a player has finished doing something, use variables!

After completing the DIY module, students will be asked 5 quiz questions involving factors, square roots, and order of operations. By the end of the lesson, students will have experimented with coding concepts (e.g., input/output, basic math, loops, functions, events, conditionals, messaging, and visibility) while creating a math quiz game.
