Reviewer: Care Bear, Jun 9 2008 04:23:53:440PM
Review based on:
student observations
Appropriate for:
practice of skills and understandings
Other Comments:
This is a great tool for deepening their understanding. I loved being able to manipulate the spinner. However, I would consider showing the students fractions out of the whole for the results instead of a bar graph. Part-to-whole relationship would be much more effective.
What math does one need to know to use the resource?
Fractions and how they relate to probability and if a game is considered fair or unfair.
What hardware expertise does one need to learn to use the resource?
Clicking and reading directions.
What extra things must be done to make it work?
Change the spinner to illustrate what I wanted to show.
How hard was it for you to learn?
Very Easy
Explanation:
I loved how you could easily change the proportions of each color on the spinner. Very effective to show the kids how a game could be considered unfair.
Ability to meet my goals:
Effective
