Each contestant must choose Split or Steal. If they both choose Split, they each get half of the money. If one chooses Split and the other Steal, the one who chose Steal gets all the money. And if they both choose Steal, nobody gets any money. Before they choose, they are allowed to discuss their plan together.

Although you may be primarily interested in a particular level, we encourage you to view the ways in which technology is used in other grade levels. For example, you will find videos of high school classrooms in which the technology tools could be used in the same way with middle school or elementary level students. Some videos involve students from both middle and high school grades and some involve students from both middle and elementary grades. These videos appear in both lists below. http://fcit.usf.edu/matrix/gradelevel.php TED-Ed - Insults by Shakespeare Watch Quick Quiz Think Dig Deeper If you sign in, you can make adjustments on most sections of the page.
