What is Matchwits?
Think of Matchwits like team Jeopardy. The season starts out with all teams taking a written test, which determines their initial scores, and seeding for the head to head rounds. Three teams of 3 to 4 student-brainletes are then asked questions from a variety of subject areas. If a team answers correctly they receive a point, and if not, the other teams get an opportunity to answer. If no teams can answer the question, the parents get an opportunity to answer (although their scores don't count, it's fun to razz the kids). After each round, the scores for each team are added to their season total. Team results are cumulative through the year, and a winner will be decided after the last meet. It is possible that not all participants will be able to be at all meets, but that's OK! Students that have participated in this program have very much enjoyed both the practice time, and the meets!
MA East Middle/High School: Administrative Conference Room
Mondays & Tuesdays during period 8.
First Practice is Monday, October 11
We would like students that are involved in other after school activities to have the opportunity to compete on our Matchwits team as well! We will practice during school time, but we may also hold a practice at the end of the school day occasionally. If a student cannot make all practice sessions, they will not be penalized in any way.
