Number Millionaire

Number Millionaire is a numeracy quiz in which individual students (contestants) are challenged to identify the correct answer to twelve arithmetical questions following the winning formula of Who Wants to be  Millionaire?

Each quiz question has a choice of four answers attached; three of the answers are incorrect. The student tries to identify the correct answer by performing mental computation and / or deduction. Whenever a student is unsure of the correct answer he / she can avail of the support provided by four Lifelines (50:50, Ask A Friend, Use a Friend, Ask the Audience) to arrive at the correct answer. The quiz is usually planned and structured as an individualised activity, involving one contestant at a time, but can also be implemented as a paired or collaborative activity involving two or more students. Participating schools are provided with two Teacher Resource Manuals (questions and answers) and a Number Millionaire Thermometer poster.
