## Ratios and Rates

"The Drive": Cool puzzle by way of video -- is Dad speeding? (Show adults and ask them to solve it!)

Thinking Blocks - Ratios: Great ratio word problem practice with a visual model.

Ratio Rumble: Fun; a bit on the easy side, but helps train your brain.

Ratio Blaster or Ratio Stadium: Very similar to equivalent fraction practice.

Ratio Quiz with pictures (quick): See how you do! The same site also has more practice exercises.

Ratio and Rate Quiz: Dull problems, but good practice. Some may need calculator. Gives different questions each time you take it.

Sweet Treat Cafe: Varied problems (not all ratios) with some real-life applications, but annoying game format. Mute or use headphones at school.

## Our Number System

**Multiplication Facts and Factoring**

Penguin Jump: for your 12 x 12 multiplication facts, check your knowledge (and speed) in a fun way! You can join a game or create your own. If you create a private game, you can play against the computer. You can also make custom settings to play (for instance) only up to 10 x 10.

Sigma Prime: really fun factoring game! Shoot the appropriate prime factors at the invading number ships.

Factor Game (NCTM Illuminations): Click on “+” for information. Play several times. It’s hard to beat the computer! Can you figure out ahead of time how many points you will get from a certain move? Factor Dazzle on Calculation Nation is very similar but has a little extra fun.

**Fractions**

Equivalent Fractions (NCTM Illuminations): Click on '+' symbols for information. I recommend the square rather than the circle. Try "Build Your Own" with 3/4, 2/5, 1/6, 2/3, 5/8, 4/12...

Action Fraction: adding and subtracting fractions in a race!

Fraction Feud on Calculation Nation: Fun for fraction masters. Make a fraction SMALLER or LARGER than the one you’re “jousting” against. Try to figure out which cards are generally best to use or keep for later.

Sheppard Software Fraction Games: Games about improper fractions and mixed numbers, equivalent fractions, adding fractions, subtracting fractions, and a whole lot of other choices.

Fraction Game (NCTM Illuminations): Click on '+' symbols for information. Use equivalent fractions and estimation of fraction sizes to "play" fraction cards on fraction number lines. Play several times. How few cards can you use? What are good strategies to reduce the number of cards you use?

Fraction/Decimal/Percent Jeopardy: quiz yourself on converting between these. Use "0.3..." for 0.3 with a bar (repeating decimal).

Decention: finding equivalent fractions, decimals, and percentages

phschool.com: the textbook company's site (you need the codes from me; ask me or email me); includes online quizzes. For fractions, decimals, and percents, try any of the Bits and Pieces books' links.

Manga High Math Number Quizzes (look for Fraction ones; these are rather short, since we are not members now)

**Decimals and Percentages**

Troy's Toys: prices and percents: find out amounts of discount from percent, or vice versa; you pick the level of difficulty by picking the toys

Balloon Invaders: a good challenge for finding percents FAST! only works if you are quicker with the keyboard than I am!

Decention: finding equivalent fractions, decimals, and percentages

Fraction/Decimal/Percent Jeopardy: quiz yourself on converting between these. Use "0.3..." for 0.3 with a bar (repeating decimal)

Flower Power: put decimals in order of size -- a nice complicated game (read the directions)

Hungry Puppies: add decimals (quick mental math; fun speed challenge, but problems are not terribly complicated)

phschool.com: the textbook company's site (you need the codes from me; ask me or email me); includes online quizzes. For fractions, decimals, and percents, try any of the Bits and Pieces books' links. Try doing the easier 4 or 5 problems in each quiz without a calculator, and use an online calculator for the others.

**Long Division**

MathFROG Dividerama!: long division practice

## Area, Perimeter, and Circumference

Area/Perimeter Jeopardy Review (don't use Volume column or hardest Formulas)

IXL Practice (limited to about 10 minutes/day):

Math Goodies (with ads) Practice #2 with Circle Area & Circumference (challenge)

XpMath (with ads) Parallelogram Area (This one goes ridiculously fast. Hit Tab to move quickly from one box to another.)

Manga High Pyramid Panic (includes some triangle notation we haven't done yet)

IXL Practice (limited to about 10 minutes/day):

- Perimeter

## Algebra: Expressions and Equations

**Order of Operations**

Exploring the Order of Operations (you click on operations in order they

*should*be done; computer does them)

Order of Operations Millionaire Game (includes ads; for 1 or 2 players)

Order of Operations Arithmetic Quiz (

**: click to turn on all operations (+, -, etc.) and "Triplet"; for a challenge, try Negative too)**

__important__Quick Calculate Arithmetic Quiz with Order of Operations (competition and time pressure; when you finish, may link to other games that I do NOT recommend)

## Nets and 3-D Objects

Nets you can print (to cut out and fold and tape into 3-D objects)
