This interactive Java applet game has a user adding positive and negative integers to arrive at a sum of zero. Seven overlapping circles form a ring similar to a Venn diagram. Five blue numbers are in position when the game begins. The remaining nine numbers (from -6 through 7) must be placed in the empty spaces to produce a sum of zero in each circle. There is a unique solution for each puzzle. Instructions for users and teacher information are available through links at the top of the page.

In this 10-minute video Lynne McClure introduces NRICH's Magic Vs problem to a small group of teachers in a professional development setting. She demonstrates how a "Low Threshold, High Ceiling" problem, with minimal skill requirements, can be approached by nearly all learners, and yet can elicit sophisticated mathematical thinking. As Lynne leads participants through a sequence of challenges, she models good questioning and communication practices and discusses instructional strategies. The Magic V problem and a follow-up video are cataloged separately.

In this iOS app students use the Hands-On Equations method to balance equations and solve for one variable. This app includes three lessons, each with a short one to two minute video, two example problems, and ten exercises. At the first level students solve an equation that is already set up on the scale, in the second level students must set up the equation on the scale before solving, and in the third lesson students must take this one step forward and eliminate variables as they solve.

In this iOS App students recognize numbers of dots on dominos and identify their value, compare their values, and use their values to complete addition or subtraction equations up to ten. The first four levels of this App are free for calculations with numbers to ten, there are more levels and tasks available for a fee. Within each level of the App there are two buttons in the upper right corner. One is a camera button that will take a picture of a finished sheet and the other is an activity button that opens up more complicated equations with multiple operations.

Students can use this interactive applet to practice quick recognition of the number or value of a small group of objects, without one-to-one counting. This skill, called subitizing, is important in the development of number sense. The user chooses among several representations, including fingers, a pair of dice, an abacus, a ten frame, and coins. In this version of the game an adjustable timer determines how long each group is visible. The applet keeps score of the number correct in each round of ten attempts.
