Biochemistry Games: "AZ-Quiz" and "Jeopardy!"
Rostejnska, Milada; Klimova, Helena
Journal of Chemical Education, v88 n4 p432-433 Apr 2011
"AZ-Quiz" and "Jeopardy!" are popular television shows and serve as the basis for in-class games designed to support and diversify chemistry instruction at the high school level. Both games were created in Microsoft PowerPoint, which is an easily accessible and controllable instrument that enables the creation of engaging animation. The use of games helps students to practice material covered in class, providing them with a fun and entertaining form of review. The questions in these games come from the following areas: (i) basic metabolism of carbohydrates, peptides, and (ii) lipids and nucleic acids and biological cells. (Contains 2 figures.)
