OK, OK – I’d hate for you to feel left out!
For my colleagues who teach Intermediate Math, there are a ton of on-line resources to support you and your students.
Here are some of my new favourites:
Make 15 – You play against the computer, alternating you choice of numbers to create a set with a total of 15. There’s GOT to be a way to win!
Math Search – You solve the equations (most with order of operations rules included) and then FIND the answer in a maze of digits. It’s timed. It make me a bit panicky playing, but I kinda like it. :o)
Seesaw logic – oooo – I like this one. For this game your task is to identify the heaviest object from a set on a number balance. It starts out easy and then you have to reason your way to a solution. There are no weights or numbers indicated for the balances – just relative weights for the objects. Neat!
Have fun! Carole
