Very fun quiz, made me realize I don't know some terms in English that I do know in Dutch :). One quibble, I believe it's called a hypotenuse, not a hypoteneuse

I think the type-ins for the quote don't work... I tries it first hand, didn't work. I gave up, then copied the right answer from the answergrid en retook the quiz. Pasted the quote in there, but it didn't accept it... How come?

This is a great quiz.

"The number after ninety-nine is one _______" should specify integer.

I tried abacus for "A tool that is used to work out mathematics". There are various other words for slope. You could consider adding type-ins, but granted, those don't start with "A" and "G" respectively.

The triangle descriptions ("Used to describe a triangle with...") was unclear to me because when it says the same length, I interpreted that as the same length of some other triangle. Perhaps use "Used to describe a triangle with two sides (and two angles) that have the same length", "...all sides...", and "...no sides...".

Again, excellent quiz! Nominated.
