Number Sense

A game like Connect Four that asks the players to estimate the answer within a given time span. Parameters: time limit, error tolerance, difficulty level. Includes focus on addition, multiplication, or percentage.

Estimate the number of objects, length of a curved line or area of a shape. Choose the level (easy or hard ) and how close your answer needs to be!

This is a two player game that integrates multiplication fact practice and great strategic thinking!

Operations

Algebra

Figure out the pattern to complete the sequence of numbers

Figure out if the pattern is based on the shape, color or number and then move the shapes to complete the pattern train.

Geometry

Dynamic geometry software provides an environment in which students can explore geometric relationships and make and test conjectures. In this example, properties of rectangles and parallelograms are examined. The emphasis is on identifying what distinguishes a rectangle from a more general parallelogram.

Tangram Puzzles allow students to choose a picture and use all seven pieces to fill in the outline. In Tangram Challenges, students can use tangram pieces to form given polygons.

Discover the relationship between the length of the sides and the diagonal of a square.

Use the clues (geometry definitions) to find the terms hidden in the wordsearch.

Learning Angles Through Sports

Have a go at snooker to learn how to use a protractor then move on to the football pitch to learn about right angles! Be prepared, this is a British site so snooker is like pool and football is what we call soccer! On the tennis court you'll learn about acute angles and you'll explore obtuse angles in a game called cricket! Keep your eye on the ball!

Probability

Draws a bar chart to show the result of rolling two dice 150 times:

Challenges!

In this activity the computer makes up a mystery operation, and you have to figure out what the operation is. You give the computer two numbers to calculate, and it tells you the answer. This is your first piece of evidence. Need another clue? Then gather more evidence. Keep entering pairs of numbers for the computer to calculate until you think you know what's going on. When you have an idea of how the operation works, select Test Me. The computer will give you an operation, and you can try your wit at solving the mystery.
