Hands-on x, y coordinate experiences!
Divided into the traditional four quadrants, the Pitsco Coordinate Geometry Board invites students to plot x, y coordinates; find the slope of a line between two points; graph a line; learn various quadrant characteristics; approximate areas of geometric figures; and much, much more!
This attractive, sturdy, 11" x 11" board is designed with 121 peg holes that snugly hold grooved wooden pegs. Simply insert pegs in various holes (x, y coordinates) and use the colored rubber bands to show various line segments. Holes are also available on both the x- and y-axes.
Contains the board, 25 pegs, and a bag of colored rubber bands.
Using simple materials, students build three-dimensional models of five geosolids, or regular polyhedra: tetrahedron, cube, octahedron, dodecahedron, and icosahedron. The included activities have students note the number of vertices, edges, and faces of each structure, which is used to help them build the structure.
Each kit includes 100 straws, 100 pipe cleaners, teacher instructions, and a student user guide.
Geosolids 30-PackEnough materials to use the Geosolids Kit activity in an entire classroom. Includes straws, pipe cleaners, and teacher and student instructions.
Clear up any fraction befuddlement your students have with this fun activity. Get enough materials for a class of 30 to make their own rulers.
Instead of using a regular ruler, students can learn about measuring and fractions as they make their own ruler with the Making Your Own Ruler Maker Project. The project comes with the Making Your Own Ruler Pack – which includes permanent markers, plastic material, templates, and student worksheets – and the Dr. Zoon Making Your Own Ruler Video. For convenience, the project also comes with labels, a bin, and a bin prep sheet for storage and organization.
Students learn about measuring and fractions as they make their own rulers! The pack provides everything necessary for this fun activity – permanent markers, plastic material, templates, and student worksheets – for a class of 30.
This 11" x 16" Graph Board can be written on with dry-erase markers. This board comes with a dry-erase marker and an eraser and is used in a large number of Math Connections.
This well-illustrated book is a primer on packaging design. It includes an introduction to packaging and an overview of the components of packaging design and prototyping. It also includes information and patterns for common shipping, telescoping, decorative, retail, and geometric boxes. Includes a glossary on packaging terminology.
Box-making activities and ideas abound, and there are two box-making competitions (challenges). Includes patterns for more than 15 different box configurations.
The laws of probability can’t be made much clearer than this! Students watch as small balls create a distribution curve in the tray as they randomly drop through a grid. The Binostat base and top grid are made of high-density polyethylene and connect easily. Comes with balls, grid pins, and a user guide.
