Here’s what Jim Adamson Shared

The poster he makes in class showing the numbers represented using colored blocks is here: https://twitter.com/GlenviewMath/status/567824932098465792

The worksheet is here: https://twitter.com/GlenviewMath/status/567844234700726272

This is useful in helping students think multiplicatively, about prime factorizations, and simplifying fractions.

This teaches the (yep) order of operations. You *click* the next operation. You don’t actually do the arithmetic.

Integer version (has negatives) http://bit.ly/1zlVGdw

Teaches linear functions. – Y = MX + B

Algebra vs Cockroaches is a fun online game for learning about linear functions

(you can google for Algebra vs Cockroaches) or

It is flash, so on an iPad you need to run the Puffin browser.

We have the CCSSM *Expressions and Equations (EE) standard in grades 6, 7, and 8. The “Late Delivery” game is fun for introducing evaluating expressions.*

It relates to 6.EE1 and 6.EE.6.

It is a shockwave game, so it may not run on an iPad.
