This "drag and drop" activity challenges students to put fractions in order from the lowest to the highest. Scroll to the bottom of this teacher page to find the activity. The activity continues to offer new numbers and options, so you may "play" as often as you wish. The activity offers a full screen option. There is also a link for reviewing information or introducing the topic (Revision Bite) and an online quiz. The entire interactive is embeddable by copying/pasting the "code" into your class web page or wiki.

tag(s): fractions (226)

#### In the Classroom

Share this site with your students on your interactive whiteboard or projector. Use the Revision Bite as an anticipatory set for a lesson about fractions. Then use the activities and online quiz as enhancements to your lesson (or even AS the lesson). The site is ready to go, easy to follow, educational, and simple for both teachers and students to use. Why not have students work in groups and create their own interactive fraction activities using PowerPoint (including graphics), or even create their own videos demonstrating fractions and share them on TeacherTube (explained here).

Discover a huge collection of interactive illustrations to help explain complex concepts in science, technology, art, math, and a range of other topics. The activities also give you the power to create interactive visualizations. There are thousands of Mathematica Demonstrations. A demonstration is a Mathematica notebook that takes advantage of Mathematica's manipulate command. Use the manipulate command to create sliders or buttons or check boxes to change the values of parameters in the displays in the demonstration. The result is you control the animation. View demonstrations on topics ranging from odd and even numbers to odd and even functions, fractions to fractals, and from linear functions to linear algebra and linear programming. In addition to mathematical topics, there are demonstrations illustrating the time in different cities around the world, global demographic information, the solar system, and art and music concepts. You need to download the Wolfram CDF player to use and interact with the demonstrations.

tag(s): addition (224), animals (308), architecture (82), computers (100), division (159), fractions (226), geometric shapes (172), gravity (47), logic (242), maps (295), money (182), multiples (35), multiplication (210), plants (167), psychology (66), statistics (125), subtraction (184), weather (200)

#### In the Classroom

Explain how to use the Demonstrations on your interactive whiteboard (or projector). Allow students to explore on their own classroom computers. (Remember to download the CDF player onto each computer or request it in advance from your tech department.) Challenge students to create a talking avatar using a photo or other image (legally permitted for reproduction). Use avatars to explain activities performed using a Demonstration. Use a site such as Blabberize (reviewed here). The beauty of the demonstrations is that it allows students to manipulate and "play" to view the impact of changes made, allowing many opportunities for classroom discussion. Ask students to predict the impact of changes using the manipulate command; then discuss the actual impact as it occurs.

Refraction is an online game for teaching fractions. Partition lasers to power spaceships that contain various animals stuck in space. Animal spaceships require different fractions of the lasers, and pieces split and bend the lasers to reach the animals to satisfy these requirements. These mechanics can teach many important fraction concepts, such as equal partitioning, addition, multiplication, mixed numbers, improper fractions, and common denominators.

tag(s): fractions (226), mixed numbers (14)

#### In the Classroom

This game is perfect for use on your interactive whiteboard or on classroom computers. Discuss different options for using lasers and the effect they will have when used. Present the site to a couple of "tech savvy" students before presenting to the whole class. These students become helpers to answer questions others may have with using the game.

Wired Math organizes a variety of math interactives, challenges, lessons, and enrichment opportunities from various sources to be used by students, teachers, tutors, and parents. The original site was created for middle grades, but some of the topics are useful at lower and higher levels. Math topics included range from fractions and simple multiplication to ratio, rate, and proportional relationships. The activities are simple to play and have a convenient help feature just in case you feel confused. Most of these activities require Shockwave.

The goal of this site is to demonstrate the beauty of mathematics. The creator also wants to show the wonder and intellectual playfulness of math. Included on the site are many videos and essays exploring higher level mathematics. Titles include "How to Think Like a School Math Genius", "A Cute Finger Trick for Trigonometry", and "What is Zero to the Zeroth Power?". Most video titles are approximately 10 minutes in length. Also available on the site are two free PDF downloads: Guide to Everything Quadratic and Guide to Fractions. Be aware: parts of this site require some navigation (a few clicks) to get to your destination. But the "clicks" are well worth the time. At the time of this review, the link to "Curriculum Tidbits" was not active, but the Think Curriculum tab works. Although the author's books are available for sale on the site, there is plenty of free material available making the site worth exploring.
