Explore the possibilities of creating spreadsheets. Animated tutorials. Imports to Excel and AppleWorks. For learning math skills.
BBC Science Simulations 1 provides an opportunity for children to explore seven "virtual" science investigations. The simulations include making plants grow, exercise, building electrical circuits and more. This program is perfect for whole class instruction using a whiteboard and provides an excellent opportunity for students to predict, carry out, and evaluate investigations with the additional benefit of being able to simply reset them and start again. The "questions" portion of the program provides ideas for simulations.
With this program math students actively explore and analyze data using dynamic Venn, bar, stack, pie and axis plots.
The High School Science series begins with Chemistry, Biology, and Physics. Students can explore interactive, online content designed with real-world and game-like visualizations of labs, experiments, and more. High School Science provides five primary types of science Activity Objects or lessons: 1. Concept Development 2. Real-World Experiments 3. 3D Simulations 4. Dynamic Modeling 5. Math in Science
BBC Science Simulations 2 provides opportunities for early elementary students to interact with seven virtual science investigations. Students can observe how shadows change over the course of a day, investigate which of four materials is the best thermal insulator, and much more. Students can develop their understanding of fair testing by controlling variables on screen and can see instant results by selecting to view a table or graph alongside the animation. A "Questions" section with full narration provides ideas for investigations that students can complete independently.
BBC Science Simulations 3 was designed to enhance science investigation skills for upper elementary students. Virtual experiments exploring varying topics such as plant growth and and electrical circuits allow teachers and students to experience a wide range of phenomena in ways and at speeds that would be difficult to achieve in the classroom. The "Questions" portion of the software includes ideas for exploration. Students can manipulate a variety of variables and instantly observe their effects.
MathType has three important accessibility capabilities. First of all, MathType can be used as an add-on to Microsoft Word to enable students with hand writing or mobility issues to create math equations with a computer, either via the keyboard, mouse, or with a variety of adaptive mouse tools. Secondly, MathType can be used to create accessible math content via MathType's MathPage function. The resulting web document can then be read with any MathML-enabled screen reader or assistive technology application.
This game engages players in a first-job-after-college simulation, encouraging players to apply math calculations in real-world contexts.
A series of activities to engage students while building math skills.
The Signing Math Dictionary (SMD) is one in a series of illustrated, interactive 3D sign language dictionaries and pictionaries. The SMD is designed for grade 4-8 students who are Deaf or Hard-of-Hearing and use American Sign Language (ASL) or Signed English (SE) in the classroom. The SMD supports access to standards-based math content among elementary and middle school students and contains 705 math terms and will link to definitions in other dictionaries and pictionaries from the series. Requires ITunes to download.
