Kahoots are a great way to get students engaged and having fun in math or other subjects. On slideshare.net, I found this great picture that explains what a kahoot is pretty clearly.
Kahoot: an interactive quiz game for all subjects of learning. Teachers can create their own quiz by typing in questions relating to their topic or subject. The kids then use an ipad, computer, phone, or tablet to go http://kahoot.it . You can even create social games to play at a party. If you don’t want to create your own, but play one someone else created, you can do that also. They have thousands of public Kahoots ready to go. The game is highly addictive and engaging.
Kahoot gives each lesson a pin number when the game is started. The students type in the pin and they are automatically in the game. They compete against each other for higher points and can even compete against themselves in ghost mode. You can even have the kids type their names and download a score to put in your gradebook.
I have created several of these Kahoots for use in my math classes. I will post a few of these on a different post that is free to use in your class as a review or fun quiz for the kids.
