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. Each scientist needs a certain atom, which you create by solving linear equations and then guiding 'raw' atoms through the Generator's maze of machines and tubes. Be quick: the scientists are impatient to continue their work. Take too long to serve them and they grow annoyed and eventually storm off; let this happen too many times and you will be fired! 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). Game Controls Generator Components Intake Funnel

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. The smartphones and service are free of charge to the students and their schools due to a grant provided by Qualcomm, as part of its Wireless Reach™ initiative.

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 was called semis
