**Teacher Testimonial:** Quirky Quiz is an activity that begins in a strange but fun manner, with a quiz that has no questions. To add suspense and intrigue to the assignment give the quiz toward the end of the period and tell the students that you will grade it and return it to them the next day. From that point on the analysis of multiple choice probability and the statistics collected from the class will lead to a great deal of meaningful mathematics for the students.
