## Factorise!

Factorise
Visualize factors through building rectangular areas on a grid. First enter all the factorizations of a number, then draw each factor set as an area on the grid. Factorize is one of the Interactivate assessment explorers.

## Estimator Four & Other Estimation Activities

Play a "Connect-Four" style game, earning a game piece each time you answer an estimation question correctly. This game asks the players to estimate the answer to addition, multiplication, and percentage questions. Choose difficulty level, question types, and time limit. Estimator Four is one of the Interactivate assessment games.

Here is a similar interactivity that doesn't have the Connect Four interface.

In this interactivity, you can choose 'Counting' where the students have to estimate the number of stars.

More or Less Estimator
Is the number of objects more or less than the given estimate?

## Arithmetic Four & Arithmetic Quiz

Arithmetic Four is a Connect Four variation where you have to answer an arithmetic question correctly before you can play a chip. You get to choose the category, the operation, the difficulty level and the time limit.

Arithmetic Quiz is similar but without the Connect Four interface.

## Old Egyptian Maths Cats

Ancient Egyptians knew fractions like 1/2 or 1/4 ((one piece of a pie).
But to make fractions like 3/4, they had to add pieces of pies like 1/2 + 1/4 = 3/4.

For some reason, they never repeated the same fraction when adding; ie they never wrote: 1/4 + 1/4 + 1/4 = 3/4

This website presents a range of Egyptian maths problems for you to solve. Good luck!
