Math Snacks

(mathsnacks.com/)

Age Range: 9-13 (Grades 4-8, with parental supervision)

 

New Mexico State University Learning Games Lab created this site, which aims to provide “smart educational animations, games, and interactive tools that help mid-school learners better understand math concepts.”

The site’s collection of “snacks” are highly entertaining educational movies, games, and apps that focus on specific mathematical concepts, each requiring only a small amount of time. Some of the videos and games you’ll find include: 

  • Watch the fabled Atlantis sink, thanks to a Dodgeball coach who lacks a clear understanding of ratios.
  • Identify numbers that sum to ten, and decimals that sum to 1 – while driving a school bus full of monsters and deforming the neighborhood (this one you’ve got to see to believe).
  • Watch a supervillain and superhero match wits, scaling things up and down by the same factor.

There are many more as well. Look under the “Teaching With” link to find guides for student and teacher, as well as transcripts of the video clips, and more, to help solidify the concepts.

A handy reminder from the teachers’ page: “Math Snacks isn’t a curriculum, but a series of activities you can use with the curriculum you are already using in grades 4-8.” Since they’re snacks, you’ll be glad to hear that they’re portable; if you have a mobile device, you can learn something new on the go!
