Math Widgets III is a collection of four interactive tools for teaching and learning mathematical concepts and adds even more tools for enrichment to the Math Widget series. The Multibase Abacus Widget helps students understand the meaning of the place value system by challenging them to represent numbers using different number systems. By sliding abacus beads up and down the students represent numbers. The challenge is to show a number equivalent to a given Base 10 number.
The Clock Arithmetic Widget displays a clock face and an arrow. The challenge is to find the answers to modular arithmetic challenges.
The Goldbach's Conjecture Widget encourages students to explore the idea that every even number greater than 2 can be expressed as the sum of two primes. Goldbach proposed this idea in a letter to Euler. Mathematics have tried for centuries but have never be able to prove this conjecture.
Hexagon Arithmetic displays six emojis in a hexagonal pattern. The goal is complete the table by moving the correct emojis into the cells of the grid.
Math Widgets is designed to provide math enrichment for elementary and middle school age students and is appropriate for school or home use.
