AMATH is a complete, self-paced, computer driven, adult level course designed as an intervention device to help those who have completed the course work in K-8 math, but cannot do the work. Most teenagers and pre-teens respond better when treated as an adult. We estimate that 80% of the U.S. population cannot do K-8 math at a level sufficient to do well in a high school Algebra I class. Measurement is one of the main topics of this course.
Students learn to read for detail and comprehension as they select, organize, measure, and follow directions to choose dessert for company. They measure, mix, set oven time and temperature and bake. Teacher options allow for 3 levels of difficulty plus assistance for using fractions to measure. Recipes may be printed. IBM requires CGA or better. Macintosh requires System 6.0.7 or later, 2 MB and color monitor.
Geometry that integrates key concepts from other mathematical areas such as number and measurement, covering topics such as spatial relationships, shapes, patterns and symmetry. These units help students develop geometric thinking and spatial sense, which form a firm foundation for upper elementary and secondary work in mathematics.
A program that helps students learn and improve basic math skills through measurement activities. By transforming the computer screen into a drawing board with rulers, compass, protractor, grids, calculator, and note pad, MathLab enables students to solve problems selected from a wide range of topics and presented through interesting and practical applications. MathLab also offers windows, pull-down menus, and dialog boxes.
Three programs on one disk: measuring length, mass, and volume. Each type of measurement allows for an unlimited number of variations for practice as well as tutorial information. Includes techniques and problems associated with use of metric ruler, triple beam balance, and graduated cylinder. High-resolution graphics. Includes lesson planner and back up disk.
All the cats in the land of Catopia are blue - a result of drinking a deceptively great-tasting concoction devised by the evil Queen. The formula for the antidote lies scattered throughout the Queen's pyramid. She will relinquish the formula piece by piece, but only in response to correct answers to perimeter, area, volume, and surface area problems. Word problems create real-world situations with creative illustrations and can be included with every skill. Remedial Grades 9-12. Requires color Mac and System 7 or higher.
Explores the development of the methods used to measure time in a lively animated format. Primitive forms of measuring time, including the Greek sundial, the Chinese water watch, and the first clock developed by Huygens, led to today's method of telling time through the use of the Greenwich Meridian and the Atomic Clock. Includes detailed barcoded teacher's guide with summary, investigative questions, synopsis, teacher questions & answers and reproducible student question worksheet.
A full-featured scientific calculator integrated with numerical conversions. It has fourteen significant digits for all operations and is available in a 16-bit version for Windows 3.1 and a 32-bit version for Windows 95 and Windows NT.
Topics include units of measurement, changing between units, converting metric measures, the graduated cylinder, and measuring liquids, solids, and gases. Simulations, interactive exercises, extensive drill and practice and assistance when needed ensure mastery and comprehension. IBM requires CGA or better.
Many online calculators require a java-capable browser. Here's one that doesn't: Entisoft's calculator will perform over 500 different unit conversions for distance, area, volume, mass, speed, temperature, pressure, energy, power, force, etc.
