Algebra Meltdown

Algebra Meltdown
Game Goals In this maths game you have been recruited by Lissaman Industries to assist in one of their super-secret, ultra-dangerous research projects. As the new controller of the mighty Nuclear Generator, your job is to serve scientists waiting at the Generator's outlets. Be quick: the scientists are impatient to continue their work. The ultimate aim of the project is to construct a monstrous mega-machine known only as 'The Device'. How To Play Algebra Meltdown's action takes place across multiple level or 'shifts', each featuring a unique Nuclear Generator layout. Across the top of the screen is a rack dispensing 'raw atoms' between values -9 and +9 (B). If an atom passes through a machine, a nuclear reaction takes place and it's transformed by the operation shown (D). You direct the atoms through the tubes and machine by clicking switch boxes (E). Once a scientist receives the atom needed they run off-screen happy, and the next scientist walks to the front of the queue. Game Controls Related:  Numeracy and Maths

cell phone project Project K-Nect is designed to create a supplemental resource for secondary at-risk students to focus on increasing their math skills through a common and popular technology – mobile smartphones. Ninth graders in several public schools in the State of North Carolina received smartphones to access supplemental math content aligned with their teachers’ lesson plans and course objectives. Students communicate and collaborate with each other and access tutors outside of the school day to help them master math skills and knowledge. Budgeting Budgeting means managing your spending so it is not more than your income. So, if you have £200 of income a week you should try not to spend more than £200.

History of Fractions Did you know that fractions as we use them today didn't exist in Europe until the 17th century? In fact, at first, fractions weren't even thought of as numbers in their own right at all, just a way of comparing whole numbers with each other. Who first used fractions? Were they always written in the same way? How did fractions reach us here? The word fraction actually comes from the Latin "fractio" which means to break. From as early as 1800 BC, the Egyptians were writing fractions. Here is an example of how the numbers were made up: Could you write down in hieroglyphics? The Egyptians wrote all their fractions using what we call unit fractions. Here is one fifth. Can you work out how to write one sixteenth? They expressed other fractions as the sum of unit fractions, but they weren't allowed to repeat a unit fraction in this addition. But this is not: The huge disadvantage of the Egyptian system for representing fractions is that it is very difficult to do any calculations. was called uncia

Grid Paper PDFs Free Online Graph Paper / Grid Paper PDFs Downloadable and very printable, I find these PDFs extremely useful. Tip number one! Though I do return the correct header for a PDF, sometimes Explorer gets confused when downloading... Tip number two! Some people may need to turn off the option in Adobe's Acrobat reader "shrink to fit" which may resize the grid slightly to fit your printer's printable area. Tip number three! If you want the hexes aligned with the other edge of the paper, just make your paper size "11 x 8.5" and print the result in landscape mode!

Quick Guide to the Common Core: Key Common Core Expectations Explained - Mathematics - Vander Ark on Innovation Guest blog by Kathy Kellman, executive editor of mathematics at Curriculum Associates Note: This is part two of a two-part series. Last week, my colleague Adam Berkin wrote the first part in this series, " Quick Guide to the Common Core: Key Common Core Expectations Explained " for the English Language Arts standards. A lot of people (including some educators) have a lot of anxiety about math: How do we teach it? How do we learn it? All of mathematics is built on a few basic ideas. Following are some of the key differences between the new standards and many of the current educational standards in place around the country. Narrower and deeper focus in each grade The Common Core standards for math were designed to focus instruction on fewer topics each year, allowing more time to be spent on each topic to foster deeper understanding of key concepts and skills. Coherent connections and consistent progressions The goal behind the demand for coherence is to make math make sense. Rigor

Percentage Calculator Percentage calculator is a tool that lets you do a simple calculation: how many percent of X is Y? The tool is pretty straightforward. All you need to do is fill in two fields and the third one will be calculated for you. Other than being helpful with learning percentages and fractions, this tool is handy in many different situations. For example, you may use percentage calculator to find an amount of income tax. Keep reading if you would like to see how to find percentages and what's the percentage formula. There are a few calculators that solve very related problems: percentage decrease and percentage increase calculators show how much things change in plus or in minus, percentage change doesn't care whether it's negative or positive and finally percentage difference takes care of a very similar concept, used when we don't know the direction of the calculation (from number A to B or B to A). What is percentage? One percent is a hundredth. At first, let's start with 100 cookies.
