Hello West Van! Thank you for working with me this morning to deepen your understanding of the PLOs around Math.
I promised that I would send you the links to some of the cool weblinks I found courtesy of the BBC’s Numeracy initiative called “Maths File“. You will find connections to the new Math IRP in the games, hosted by Hypatia and Pythagoras for intermediate aged kids. You’ll need a ShockWave plug-in to operate the games, and FireFox works best for my Mac friends… There are some very clever things here, including: “Late Delivery” a game for grades 6 & 7 Algebra and “Saloon Snap” a game for finding fraction and decimal equivalents. Check out “Builder Ted” as well, for a game aimed at ordering decimal numbers.
