Activity  (...)
Activity: Students run a simulation of how a fire will spread through a stand of trees, learning about probability and chaos. Parameters: Forest density, wind direction, size of forest.

Activity: Students work step-by-step through the generation of a different Hilbert-like Curve (a fractal made from deforming a line by bending it), allowing them to explore number patterns in sequences and geometric properties of fractals.

Activity: Students play a generalized version of connect four, gaining the chance to place a piece on the board by answering arithmetic questions (addition, subtraction, multiplication, division). Parameters: time, difficulty level, types of questions. Arithmetic Four is one of the Interactivate assessment games.

Activity: Arithmetic Quiz gives the user randomized questions to answer on arithmetic with whole numbers and integers. Parameters: Level of difficulty and types of questions. Arithmetic Quiz is one of the Interactivate assessment quizzes.

Activity: The same as "Bounded Fraction Pointer" but there is no arrow to help the user determine the value of a fraction between the two endpoints. Bounded Fraction Finder is one of the Interactivate assessment explorers.

Activity: Determine the value of two fractions you have chosen (which are represented as points on a number line). Then find a fraction whose value is between your two fractions (using an arrow on the number line as a guide) and determine its value. Bounded Fraction Pointer is one of the Interactivate assessment explorers.

Activity: Learn about fractions between 0 and 1 by repeatedly deleting portions of a line segment, and also learn about properties of fractal objects. Parameter: fraction of the segment to be deleted each time.

Activity: Work with various types of clocks in order to learn about modular arithmetic operations. Parameters: Number of hours on the clock.

Activity: Converts fractions to decimals and decimals to fractions. Observe the relationships between fractions and decimals.

Activity: Run a simulation of how a fire will spread through a stand of trees, learning about probability and chaos. Parameters: Probability that a tree will set fire to each of its eight neighbors.

Activity: Visually represent two unique fractions that are equivalent to a given fraction. The fractional value is shown on a number line after you check to see if your fraction is correct. Equivalent Fraction Finder is one of the Interactivate assessment explorers.

Activity: Visually represent two unique fractions that are equivalent to a given fraction. The fractional value is shown on a number line as you color in the fraction. Equivalent Fraction Pointer is one of the Interactivate assessment explorers.

Activity: Run a simulation of how a fire will spread through a stand of trees, learning about probability and chaos. Parameters: Probability that a tree catches fire if its neighbor is on fire.
