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.

This is an activity about structures in space. Learners will construct two different types of trusses to develop an understanding of engineering design for truss structures and the role of shapes in the strength of structures. For optimum completion - this activity should span 3 class periods to allow the glue on the structures to dry. This is engineering activity 1 of 2 found in the ISS L.A.B.S. Educator Resource Guide.

In this activity, learners prepare four polymer elastomers and then compare their physical properties, such as texture, color, size, and bounce height. This activity is a fun way for learners to become more familiar with polymers and their uses. Safety note: The "Teacher Notes for Level 1" link contains a number of safety guidelines that should be read before doing this activity.

This is an activity associated with activities during Solar Week, a twice-yearly event in March and October during which classrooms are able to interact with scientists studying the Sun. Outside of Solar Week, information, activities, and resources are archived and available online at any time. Learners will use SOHO spacecraft images of a coronal mass ejection and tracing paper to measure and then calculate the speed of the coronal mass ejection. This activity is scheduled to occur during Wednesday of Solar Week.

In this lesson, students will work with math manipulatives to understand that it takes 10 tenths of something to make one whole. They will use manipulatives with money (dimes), fractions (one tenth pieces), and base ten blocks (rods) to show different values. They will express values with combinations of the given manipulatives and draw their solutions. This is lesson one in a three lesson unit. Lesson two (HAPPY HUNDREDTHS) deals with hundredths and lesson three deals with combining and solving problems with tenths and hundredths (SHOPPING WITH TENTHS AND HUNDREDTHS).

This lesson is the third lesson in a unit beginning with Amazing Arrays and Amazing Arrays 2X1. In this lesson students solve a multiplication problem by drawing arrays and segment the areas in several ways to solve the problem. Students will also apply the distributive property, explore rotations of area models to demonstrate the commutative property of multiplication, and match a word problem with its array.
