  • Jason Harrison’s Jeopardy Template, modified by Jason Harrison (harrison@cs.ubc.ca) March 2002 from an unknown source. How to use: Make a copy of this presentation and save it under a different name. Modify Slide 2 to have the correct title for the game. Modify Slide 4 “Categories and Amounts” to have the correct categories. The gird of dollar values below contain hyperlinks to slides 5 through 24. Slides 5 through 24 has a title text box for the “answer” and a star in the bottom right hand corner that hyperlinks back to slide 4. On each of these slides modify the slide title (1:100, 1:200, etc) to be the answer. If you want to use an image as an answer either delete the text, move the text box off of the slide, or put the image over the text. Start the slide show, advance through the first couple of slides, review the rules, then press the spacebar, or enter key to display each of the five categories. Have a student/group pick a category and amount, with the mouse click on the dollar amount to go to the answer and click on the star to return to the main screen(slide 4). Notes: Once you’ve started the game, use the mouse pointer to move through the game by clicking on the dollar amounts and “return to main screen” star. If you get lost, press the “4” key (you know the one between 3 and 5) and then the enter key to return to the main screen (slide 4). If you practice the game and need to reset the hyperlinks on the main screen (slide 4) you need to save the file, close it, and reopen it.
