  • The Decimals Cruncher game will help you learn about decimal operations! You can choose to practice adding, subtracting, multiplying, or dividing. You can also pick how hard the game is. The game has 4 levels: easy, medium, hard, and killer. The Decimals Cruncher will keep track of your score. When you switch to a new operation (addition, subtraction, multiplication, or division), your score will start over again.

  • Hacker is in the neighborhood, so the Cybersquad is hiding. It’s time to use the power of disguise and combination to fool him! Digit has gathered a bunch of wigs, beards, and glasses for the kids to use. Your job is to figure out how many different disguises the kids can make.

  • Finding the words in these word searches will help you learn about earthquakes. The words in the puzzles may be hidden horizontally, vertically, diagonally, forward, or backward. To circle a discovered word, mouse-click on one end of the word and mouse-drag to the other end of the word. Once a word is found, it will be taken off the list. There are nine word searches that you can play: famous seismologists, general earthquake terms, magnitude, Mercalli Intensity Scale, plate names, plate tectonics, Richter Magnitude Scale, seismic waves, and tsunamis.

  • This great interactive resource allows you multiple opportunities to explore weather related concepts. After clicking start, you will learn how to report and predict the weather at the underground W.H.E.D weather caves! Each activity has three different levels, and each level is harder than the one before it. This resource also includes a teacher's guide (with pre- and post- tests) and links to additional weather related resources. These include a weather glossary, a Fahrenheit to Celsius & Celsius to Fahrenheit converter, and a link that provides information about interesting people in the weather field.

  • This activity will help you to learn about percents! In the activity, you will be estimating the percent of trees burned and the number that actually burned in a devastating forest fire.

  • Pythagoras takes a dive in his tank. Can you work out the probability of him catching a red fish?

  • In this activity, you will graphically determine the value of two given fractions represented as points on a number line. You will then graphically find a fraction whose value is between the two given fractions and determine its value.

  • Playing Fraction Frenzy will help you to learn about equivalent fractions. During the game, a group of fractions will be displayed on the screen. You will then match the equivalent fractions until all fractions have been matched. The game is over if you allow time to run out.
