## Reflection: Checks for Understanding Review of Angles - Section 3: Checking for Understanding

This year instead of using the Smart Response tool, I tried a new method for the quiz.  I used a free application called Kahoot! This tool allows students to use a computer or a phone to answer the questions. The tool also gives students immediate feedback by earning Kahoots and after each question students see their rank. Student put in nicknames which makes the ranking anonymous.

My quiz is called Precalculus Angle Terminology and can be used by anyone.

What amazed me is the response of the students. They have used this app in other classes so I knew many students knew how to connect. At first the students moaned but once the game started students were completely into the game. Students were competing for the top position and hooted when they got the answer correct.  I think this is a great for getting all students involved.

Questions for this app must be multiple choice or true-false which means you cannot use it for higher level questioning. I plan to use the app as we practice special angles and other skill oriented tasks. This really made a lesson that could be boring exciting to the students.

I think this activity also reduced the struggles I usually see with the terminology. The students wanted to know the answers so they could be correct if another question on the topic appeared.
