This Java applet game promotes mental math and strategic thinking skills using a card from Suntex's 24 Game. The player is presented with four numbers (1-9) on a card. The goal is to manipulate each of the four numbers only once so that the end result is 24. Addition, subtraction, multiplication, division and/or parentheses maybe used and the player must be able to enter the expression using the online calculator.

A-Mazing Robot

This activity lets you program your 'robot' (a willing friend) to pick up and dispose of some 'toxic waste' using as few commands as possible. Learners create command cards (Turn Left, Right, Forward 1, etc.), mark out a simulation area on the floor, and try to get the "robot" to dispose of something that serves as "toxic waste" into something that serves as a "containment vessel" - in as few steps as possible. Strategy, predication and cooperation are all part of this activity.

In this game, learners strategize to be the first player to make three in a row. This game is similar to the classic Tic-Tac-Toe game, but learners slide game pieces along lines, instead of filling in boxes with X's or O's. Learners will practice mathematical thinking skills like strategizing, predicting and problem solving. This activity guide contains sample questions to ask, literary connections, extensions, and alignment to local and national standards.

In this online activity, learners role-play as medics, treating a patient with missing organs. Learners select different organs, then drag them into the proper location in the patient's body. System by system, they put the patient back together. When learners set up a free account at Kinetic City, they can answer bonus questions at the end of the activity as a quick assessment. As a larger assessment, learners can complete the Smart Attack game after they've completed several activities.

Annenberg Learner Interactives: Ionic Bonding Game
Rating

This interactive game challenges learners to create eight virtual compounds by combining individual ions. Each challenge poses a task. Task #1 asks students to make sodium chloride by clicking and dragging the correct cation and anion to the workspace. Task #2 is to make a sodium oxide compound; Task #3 -- create sodium hydroxide. If an incorrect ion is chosen, the game provides immediate feedback. The game is part of a larger interactive module on the Periodic Table. <b><i>Editor's Note:</b> This resource provides opportunity for students to construct meaning from the Periodic Table by building models. It helps them build foundations to understand molecular structure and charge interaction in ionic bonding.</i> This resource is part of <i>Annenberg Media</i>, an organization devoted to distributing educational video programs which are accompanied by web and print materials.

Annenberg Media Projects Learner Online site in 1997 added a section of online exhibits, an extension of its educational multi-media collection. The first exhibit, The Middle Ages, portrays every day life in Medieval times and contains sections on religion, homes, clothing, health, arts, and town life. Each section provides a short essay and links to related sites, and may also offer an interactive quiz or activity. This is the first of what is to be a series of monthly exhibits aimed at K-12 students and other interested users. Learners of all ages can consult Learner Online for information on Annenberg/CPB projects and can also visit a video preview room (RealPlayer or VDOLive), and consult a guide to math and science reform, and SAMI (Science and Math Initiatives), a "clearinghouse of resources, funding, and curriculum for... math and science teachers."

Antibiotic Attack (Kinetic City)
Rating

This game is a part of the Tau Pack of the Kinetic City site (see description below). In this simulation, the patient's bodies are filled with bacteria. The object is to cure as many patients as possible. Learning concepts enforced here are that antibiotics are specific for the type of bacteria they treat, their strength, and that the bacteria may also become resistant to the bacteria by mutations.KINETIC CITY DESCRIPTION: "Kinetic City" (www.kineticcity.com) is a fun, Web-based after-school science club for kids, ages 8 through 11. It combines exciting online animations and activities with boxes of hands-on science experiments. Children earn "Kinetic City" power points and collect stickers as they complete missions and learn standards-based science content. Here's how it works: The "Kinetic City" super crew (Keisha, Curtis, Megan and Max) needs the help of Earth kids to save their planet Vearth, from the science-distorting computer virus Deep Delete. Each of Deep Delete's 60 hideous strains attacks a different area of science with disastrous consequences. After each attack, teams of Earth kids fight back by viewing a short online animation describing the situation on Vearth; performing a series of activities to re-learn the lost science and going on a mission to Vearth during which they answer science questions and gobble up Deep Delete viruses. Their scores appear on their own Kinetic City Club Web page. "Kinetic City" is produced by the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), with a grant from the National Science Foundation. AAAS writes the "Project 2061 Benchmarks for Science Literacy," which forms the basis of most state science standards.
