The wheel of knowledge requires students to make as many words, sums or events as possible. Each letter/number may only be used once per word/sum/event. You must always use the middle letter/number.

English:
Make as many words as possible of at least 3 letters. Each word earns one point per letter.

History:
Make a (correct) year from the Historical Overview and indicate what happened in that year.

Math:
Do as many sums as possible that add up to exactly 100. For each number you will find the required operation. For a number with a question mark, students may choose their own operation.

The students' answers appear in the word web.
