Gives the mind a workout using different operations, equating one sum with another gives an extra dimensiont to the usual operations games. This is a more higher-order thinking balance game, the user must work out the difference between two equations and then alter one to make both of their answers match.
Suggestions for use: The interactive game is suited to the Interactive whiteboard with either the teacher or a pupil in control. Pupils could work individually or in groups to work out the solutions to the equations and the steps required to equate them.
Introduces the subtopic of fractions in an easy to follow way. There is an abundance of information and plenty of practical challenges, interactive games can be chosen to practice / reinforce learning.
Suggestions for use: The explanations given on the website for most aspects of fractions as a subtopic are explored in detail, including pictures, this could be used to great success in the classroom. The challenges, questions and interactive activities would be ideal for introduction, elaboration, practice or testing of pupil's learning.
Activity taken from a teacher blog that presents an idea for teaching fractions in an Art class. Children make cup cakes from paper and put coloured springlers on them - they then report what fraction of sprinklers are a specific colour.
