Challenge your friends to this Kahoot!

I have recently discovered Kahoot! which is a free quiz game that anyone can use to make interactive quizzes. Competitors compete for points using their mobile phones or tablets to enter their answers. The quicker they choose the correct answer the more points they earn. It is very competitive and certainly provides plenty of pace to a lesson. It is completely free for both teachers and students to use. To start, set up an account atÂ http://www.getkahoot.com and begin making quizzes.

Here is my first attempt. (I edited an existing one by improving the questions to include misconceptions and added a video for the start).
