Estimating Numbers on a Number Line - Tablet Version
Estimate the number the arrow is pointing to, then calculate the correct answer when you are told your error. A great game to help develop an understanding of place value, reading scales and to practise mental addition and subtraction. There are lots of levels to play; inc. 0 to 10, 0 to 100, 0 to 1000, and levels involving negative numbers and decimals.
This ITP has been remade so that it will work in modern browsers. It will remain free to use.
This ITP displays a thermometer. The scale, range and the interval markers can be changed and a slider control can be dragged up and down the length of the thermometer to set the height of the column. A second marker indicates the last reading so that comparisons can be made. This marker can be fixed in position if required. The positive or absolute difference between two values can be displayed, and the change in the temperature as the marker is moved. The ITP can be used to develop children’s understanding of vertical scales and negative numbers in the context of temperature. The slider controls can be used to introduce and model strategies for addition and subtraction that involve positive and negative numbers. The language of number can be developed, giving meaning to calculations such as subtract negative 3 from negative 7.
