This Nrich interactive environment can be used with students, perhaps on an interactive whiteboard, for many different purposes. These might include, for example, exploring ideas associated with factors and multiples, or addition and subtraction. It is also an ideal context in which to investigate fractions and ratio, or to look at finding combinations.

Students learn about and practice converting between fractions, decimals and percentages. Using a LEGO® MINDSTORMS® NXT robot and a touch sensor, each group inputs a fraction of its choosing. Team members convert this same fraction into a decimal, and then a percentage via hand calculations, and double check their work using the NXT robot. Then they observe the robot moving forward and record that distance. Students learn that the distance moved is a fraction of the full distance, based on the fraction that they input, so if they input ½, the robot moves half of the original distance. From this, students work backwards to compute the full distance. Groups then compete in a game in which they are challenged to move the robot as close as possible to a target distance by inputting a fraction into the NXT bot.

After the Great Depression struck, Ford especially wanted to support ailing farmers. For two years, Ford and his team researched ways to use farmers’ crops in his Ford Motor Company. They discovered that the soybean was the perfect answer. Soon, Ford’s cars contained many soybean plastic parts, and Ford incorporated soybeans into every part of his life. He ate soybeans, he wore clothes made of soybean fabric, and he wanted to drive soybeans, too. The resource includes a lesson plan/book card, a design challenge, and copy of a design thinking journal that provide guidance on using the book to inspire students' curiosity for design thinking. Maker Challenge: Think about the people in your community and the challenges they face. List three challenges that affect their daily life. Consider something you use every day and brainstorm how it could be repurposed or modified to address this problem.

A document is included in the resources folder that lists the complete standards-alignment for this book activity.

Pearl Diver is a fun, interactive web-based game and app for iPad and iPhone. Players learn the number line while diving for pearls amidst shipwrecks and sunken ruins. This learning game addresses standard mathematic concepts included in the current Common Core curriculum such as: -understanding numbers, ways of representing numbers, and number systems -understanding and representing commonly used fractions -understanding fractions as part of unit wholes and as locations on number lines -comparing and ordering fractions, and finding their approximate locations on the number line Pearl Diver is supported by supplementary materials including teacher’s guide, learner’s guide, “Teaching With Pearl Diver” video, and printable resources. It is available in English and Spanish. This game is available free on the Apple App Store. This project was sponsored by NSF and developed by the Learning Games Lab in collaboration with researchers and mathematicians in the College of Education and College of Arts and Sciences at New Mexico State University.
