It takes about 5 rounds of spelling the words correctly at a decent pace to get the $1 million. I found it did not really matter what level the CPU played at. Wrong choices do penalize your score.

Quickest way to get this is to "shoot first and ask questions later". As soon as the answers become available, choose an answer - ANY answer - and then start spellchecking. If the answer you chose was wrong, you can change it with NO PENALTY. But as long as you answer first and quickly, you have a 25% chance of getting $25,000 on the question.

The font is not very conducive to spellchecking so start with the shortest words first, obviously. Also, make certain that you don't get tricked as the game will change it up between looking for words spelled correctly and words spelled incorrectly.

The strategy for the Math one is the same, but you will want to choose an answer, then quickly put the calculation through a calculator, and then change your answer if necessary. Don't forget to hit clear on the calculator between questions just as a nice safety net. Because I had to do my own calculator, I averaged a tiny bit less on my score than the spelling since I don't have three hands but if you can get a pal to do the calculating, this one can be even quicker than the spelling. Either way, you should get each achievement in no more than 4 or 5 games each.
