Overview:

In this media gallery, a series of videos examines the mathematical concepts of mean, median, mode, and range. The accompanying classroom activity asks students to build on what they’ve learned by playing a game called "Sure Shots." In this game, students are directed to find out how many attempts it takes, on average, to get a pom-pom into a can. Students make a series of attempts and collect the data. Then, after a group discussion, they take the data and determine the mean, median, mode, or range

Overview:

In this interactive, students use logic and mathematical skill to place aquatic animals at locations on a Cartesian graph with cardinal directions. Then, they determine both the vertical and horizontal distances between points. The riddles in the interactive, including one that requires an understanding of rate, have randomized values so that students can practice placing points at different locations and calculating different distances. The accompanying classroom activity provides a review of concepts related to determining the distances between points on a Cartesian graph and a response sheet to help students work with the interactive

Overview:

In this interactive, use logic to solve three riddles involving a jumping wallaby competition. Then, using knowledge of inequalities and rational numbers, place the wallabies on the correct range from –5 to 5 on the number line. Numbers are randomized so that the range on the number line is different each time the riddles appear. The accompanying classroom activity includes a concept review and response sheets to support the online work.

Overview:

In this interactive, use logic to solve riddles involving a wallaby jumping contest. Then, place each contestant’s jump—a fraction, mixed number, or decimal between –5 and +5—at the correct point on the number line. Backward jumps are represented by negative numbers and forward jumps by positive numbers. Numbers are randomized so that riddles can be solved and wallabies placed on the number line multiple times. The accompanying classroom activity includes a fraction/decimal concept review and a response sheet to accompany the online work.
