## Partitioning Whole Numbers and Decimals

Partition whole numbers and decimals into 100s, 10s, 1s, tenths, etc. Students are asked to do this in more than one way.

## Particle Maths

Thirty particles fall from above. Use the repelling particle to nudge them into the correct box depending on whether they contain a square number or a prime number. This game is addictive - three thumbs up!

## The Function Wheel

Choose your wheel and answer the questions. The wheels include tables, rounding, squares, and many others.

## One Million Dots!

Page 1 of this flipchart contains 10,000 dots - 10 rows of 10 squares, where each square consists of 10 rows of 10 dots. 10 x 10 x 10 x 10 = 10,000.

On page 2, I shrank the big square of dots on page 1, and then made a square that consists of 10 rows, each containing 10 of these squares, or 100 squares altogether. 10,000 x 100 = 1,000,000! So this page actually contains 1 million dots.

If you use the ActivStudio zoom tool, you can zoom in enough to see the original dots. Interesting side note - the file is only 10.02 KB.

## Square or Prime?

A really really cool interactive game to practise number properties. Thirty particles fall from above. Use the repelling particle to nudge them into the correct box depending on whether they contain a square number or a prime number.

Three thumbs up!
