**Quizzes make learning fun! There is no quicker way to learn about Math in High School - Grades 9 and 10**

Let’s start with a joke to lighten up what can be the rather complex subject of Math. Which animal is the best at multiplication? Find out later in this introduction.

Seeing as that silliness is out of the way, let’s talk about numbers. Whole numbers, integers, fractions, decimals, square roots, cube roots, rationals, irrationals, imaginary numbers (yes, really!), negatives, positives, measurements, formulae, equations, quadrants, scales, conversions, exchange rates…can we pause for breath?

Oh that’s better. We were starting to turn blue for a moment back there. Shall we have a popcorn interlude and talk about BIG numbers? Go on then, just for you.

- The average person produces 10,000 gallons of saliva in their life. Yuck!
- The average American’s high school graduate’s vocabulary contains 60,000 words. How many are in the English language? Around 8,000,000. Yikes.
- There are approximately 1,000,000,000 (that’s one billion) bacteria cells in a single teaspoon of soil.
- It would take you roughly 40 million steps to walk all the way around Earth.
- If we scooped out the innards of planet Earth (which might take a while), we could then fill it with peas. How many peas would we need? Only about 1 octillion (that is the number 1 followed by 27 zeros which we are not going to write down). Oh go on then. 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000. Phew. Can we have some more popcorn now please?

Back to the serious stuff. Having been through middle school, you may have assumed you’ve learned all there is to learn in Math. Wrong! But don’t worry, we’ve taken the numbness out of numbers (see what we did there?) and funked up your high school math subjects into great-to-play quizzes. You can play them as many times as you wish and there are explanations to help you breeze though tricky tests and exams.

Oh, the answer to the joke? Wascally wabbits are the absolute greatest at multiplying!

Now it’s back to review. Calculators at the ready.
