### Are You Smarter than a Pre

```An Extra Point Quiz
“Are You Smarter than a Pre-Calc
Student” is a game in which the first
10 questions the class is playing the
game together to earn extra credit
points that are accumulated as a
group.
If the game advances to the bonus
question, the students will then be
playing individually to risk +/- 5 more
extra credit points.
In the classroom designate 10 students to act as
the “players” in for the game. The remaining
classroom students will act as “classmates” and
the “audience” in the game.
The student “players” will each pick a number
between 1 and 10. The number will correspond to
the questions for which that student will act as the
player.
Play starts with question and player number 1.
During play, each player can choose a pre-calc
"classmate", who may be called upon for assistance.
For each question there will be a new “player” and a new
“classmate” is picked from those who have not yet played
in that game.
Once the question is read, the player will have 60
