2 Jeopardy v4.1 This version fixes some timer issues and updates the code to be compatible with 64-bit systems. The timer default is 30 seconds. To change it, go to the Setup menu. First: in order to use this program, you need to enable macros. In Office 2007, it will automatically ask if you want to enable the macros. If you have an earlier version, then use the setup menu to access instructions on how to enable them. To use this, simply edit the names of the categories to fit what you need, and then enter your questions (and answers) on the appropriate slides. Once you’ve entered all the questions, run the show. You must hit the “Start Game” button on this page (it will make sure all the questions appear). Click on the question chosen and that slide will come up. To start the timer, click the block of white squares. They will tick off to show the passage of time. When time is up, a stop sign will appear. Click the stop sign to reload the timer. To show the answer, click anywhere on the slide other than the timer or the back button. When the question has been answered, click the word “Back” in the lower right hand corner to bring yourself back to the main page. Once there, click the name of the team that got it right and enter the point value of the question. The score will be updated! Comments? Suggestions?

3 Organisms and Their Relationships © 2008 by Mr. Mayers Flow of Energy and Matter Community Ecology Biomes Population Dynamics Biodiversity Team 1 Team 2Team 3 000

4 Organism and Their Relationships 100 A non-living part of an environment. Examples: sunlight, water, weather, rocks What is an abiotic factor? Back Reveal Question

5 Flows of Energy and Matter 100 Energy first enters an ecosystem through these organisms. Examples: algae, trees, grasses. What are producers? Back Reveal Question

6 Community Ecology 100 A group of interacting populations (different species) that occupy the same area at the same time. What is an ecological community? Back Reveal Question

7 Biomes 100 The number one factor that determines which kind of biome an environment is. This also determines what life forms can live there and how many of them the environment can support. What is climate? Back Reveal Question

8 Population Dynamics 100 The number of members of a population living in a given area at the same time. What is population density? Back Reveal Question

9 Biodiversity 100 There are three types of biodiversity (variety of life). This type is represented by the diagram. What is species diversity? Back Reveal Question

10 Organisms and Their Relationships 200 Both where an organism lives and the role it plays within its environment. What is an ecological niche? Back Reveal Question

11 Flow of Energy and Matter This diagram represents the pattern of matter flow through ecological communities. What is a food web? Back Reveal Question

12 Community Ecology 200 Anything in an environment that restricts the numbers, reproduction, or distribution of organisms. What are limiting factors of populations? Back Reveal Question

13 Biomes The primary reason that the Earth is unevenly heated by sunlight. A mapping term, this leads to different climates as distance increases from the equator. What is latitude? Back Reveal Question

14 Population Dynamics Major patterns in which members of a population spread out within their ecosystem. The diagram represents one example. What is population distribution? Back Reveal Question

15 Biodiversity – 200 There are three types of biodiversity. This type of diversity protects a species such that a single weakness will not destroy the entire population. What is genetic diversity? Back Reveal Question

16 Organisms and Their Relationships 300 A heterotroph that eats other heterotrophs. Specific term. Examples: snakes, spiders, and lions. What is a carnivore? Back Reveal Question

17 Flow of Energy and Matter This diagram represents the natural distribution of biological energy at different trophic levels within an ecosystem. What is an ecological energy pyramid? Back Reveal Question

18 Community Ecology This diagram represents a pattern in the comfort zones of steelhead trout in their environment. What is range of tolerance? Back Reveal Question

19 Biomes – 300 The biome which experiences an annual average of 200 cm of rainfall and 15 ⁰ C of temperature. What is temperate forest? Back Reveal Question

20 Population Dynamics – 300 Factors that limit the sizes of populations that are not tied to population density. Examples: hurricanes, volcanic eruptions, climate changes. What are density-independent population limiting factors? Back Reveal Question

21 Biodiversity – 300 The third type of biodiversity protects the entire biosphere from collapse if global conditions change. What is ecosystem diversity? Back Reveal Question

22 Organisms and Their Relationships 400 The process by which an autotroph converts sunlight, water, and carbon dioxide into food (sugar). What is photosynthesis? Back Reveal Question

23 Flow of Energy and Matter – 400 This diagram represents how a form of matter vital to living organisms flows back and forth through the biosphere. What is the water cycle? Back Reveal Question

24 Community Ecology – 400 This natural process happens whenever an ecosystem is destroyed or a new ecosystem appears on Earth, slowly restoring life to an area. What is ecological succession? Back Reveal Question

25 Biomes – 400 A global factor that affects climate by trapping warmth from sunlight within the layers of our atmosphere, maintaining comfortable temperatures at night. What is the greenhouse effect? Back Reveal Question

26 Population Dynamics – 400 Factors that limit the sizes of populations that are closely tied to population density. Examples: disease, competition, and stress. What are density-dependent population limiting factors? Back Reveal Question

27 Biodiversity – 400 The total loss of a species from every biome on Earth. What is extinction? Back Reveal Question

28 Organisms and Their Relationships 500 All the levels of organization of life within the biosphere, listed from least to greatest. What are organisms, species, populations, communities, ecosystems, and biomes? Back Reveal Question

29 Flow of Energy and Matter – 500 This diagram represents how another important form of biological matter flows back and forth through the biosphere. What is the carbon cycle? Back Reveal Question

30 Community Ecology – 500 A fully mature ecosystem is the result of long-term primary or secondary ecological succession. What is a climax community? Back Reveal Question

31 Biomes – 500 This diagram represents the strongest evidence that humans are impacting world-wide climate change. What is global warming? Back Reveal Question

32 Population Dynamics – 500 The maximum population density that an ecosystem can support, due to limited resources and space. What is the carrying capacity of an ecosystem? Back Reveal Question

33 Biodiversity – 500 The single greatest threat to biodiversity, in which human activity destroys the homes/territories of various species. This can be due to overexploitation, physically changing the surface of an ecosystem, pollution, etc. What is habitat loss? Back Reveal Question

34 Setup Menu Set Timer Macro Instructions Daily Double Instructions Main Menu Set # Teams

35 Instructions For Adding A Daily Double: 1)Use Word Art to create a nice “Daily Double”. 2)Copy the word art to whichever slide(s) you want the Daily Double to be on. 3)Go to the Animations screen and choose “Custom Animation”. 4)Click the Daily Double Word Art to select it and choose “Add Effect”. There should be a great number of entrances to choose from. 5)Right click on the element that was just added to the Animation list and drag it to the top of the list. Now right click and choose “Start with Previous”. This will cause the graphic to enter when the slide is shown. Now choose “Effect Options”. The second menu box down should say After Animation. Click the arrow and choose “Hide on Next Mouse Click”. Click Ok. 6)Finally, click on the question (just the question) in the main screen. Go back to the custom animation panel and click Add Effect, then find the effect labeled “Appear”. Now, when you go to the slide, you should have an appearing Daily Double graphic which disappears and shows the question the next time the mouse is clicked. P.S. If you want to add a Daily Double sound effect, then when you go into the “Effect Options” menu to make it disappear after the mouse click, choose a sound to play. Setup

36 Instructions For Turning On Macros: 1)If you’re using Office 2007, then when the PowerPoint opens, there will be a status bar at the top of the screen saying macros have been disabled. There is a button that says “Options”. Choose this, and then choose “Enable” and click OK. 2)If you are using earlier versions of Office, then it is a little more complicated: A)On the top menu, choose “Tools” B)Choose “Security” C)Choose “Macros” D)You will be given three options (Low, Medium, and High). Choose Medium. E)Click OK, then close PowerPoint completely. F)Restart the program. Macros should now be enabled. To check, try running the slideshow and clicking the “Start Game” button. If nothing happens, then feel free to me at and I will try to help you out. Setup
