Use a calculator to solve problems involving multi-step calculations
|Using a Calculator - Finding Change||
Answer a variety of 2 step word problems using a calculator. Whatever is input into the calculator is then recorded and displayed, so children can see all the steps that have been taken. This makes it a great tool for demonstrating calculator skills on a whiteboard. It can also be really useful for children to practice independently, as they can trace and correct any mistakes they make.
|Use brackets to order operations||
Use a calculator to carry out calculations with more than one step using brackets and the memory.
|Balancing scales - convert between g and kg||
The scale is loaded with between 1 and 4 weights. The user then has to balance the scales, converting between g and kg in the process. There is a great deal of control over the level.
A great starter to explore addition, subtraction / difference and partitioning as well as the relationship between grams and kilog More…rams. Levels include converting whole kg to g (and vice versa), converting fractions of kg (eg 1/4kg = 250g) and weights in kg to 1 and 2 decimal places.
|Solve 2 Step Money Problems||
Read and interpret a word problem. Calulate the cost of 2 items and then find change from a given amount.
** February 2013 - I have added a new game in which you solve 2 step money problems using a calculator **
|Balancing Scales g and kg||
Add weights to either pan until they are balanced. Can be used to teach addition, subtraction, partitioning, and mass, as well as developing an understanding of the equals sign.
|Placing Calculations on a Number Line||
Place the answer to calculations on a number line. An enormous array of choice. Addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. Ranging from adding numbers to 10 to multiplying 4 digit numbers. Great for combining teaching calculations and approximations with developing an understanding of place value.
|ITP Function Machine||
View full screen in your browser. One or two-step function machine. Choose an input and explore how it is transformed by one or two number functions.
