Important notes about the Quizizz quiz

*You MUST complete the quiz in “portrait” orientation, otherwise you will not be able to see the answers! (and your iPad must have the “Home” button at the bottom otherwise it won’t rotate – even when unlocked!)

*I would recommend taking it on your phone for the Quizizz questions – then you can use the graph paper on iPad Notability when working the problems. I could not get Quizizz to split screen with Notability, and I could not get graph paper on the iPad floating screen, unless I opened Notability first, got the graph paper, then opened Quizizz. If you find any other options or good tech tips, please share!
