 Everyday Math – 6th Grade – Units 6 and 7 Lesson 6.3 Addition & Subtraction of Positive & Negative Numbers Color Chips – Addition. This MattiMath virtual manipulative activity uses plus and minus chips to demonstrate adding positive and negative numbers. http://ciese.org/ciesemath/integeraddition.html Lesson 6.6 Order of Operations Play the West game. (You will find it on your computer.) Also play the West Round Trip game which also takes you backwards from Great Gulch to the start. In the process you will learn about negative numbers! http://www.ciese.org/ciesemath/west.html Lesson 6.8 Solving Simple Equations Broken Calculator. In this game you have to get as close as possible to a given number, by using the still working buttons of a broken calculator. http://ciese.org/ciesemath/broken.html Lesson 6.9 Review: Pan-Balance Problems Balance Beam Activity. Use basic equation principles with this virtual balance to find the weights of various figures. You are presented with a number of shapes and one of their weights is known. Your goal is to find the weights of the other objects by finding the relationships between the objects of various weights. This is achieved with a simulation of a balance beam to tell you how the weights relate. http://www.mste.uiuc.edu/pavel/java/balance/ Lesson 6.11 The Equivalent-Equations Method of Solving Equations Algebra Balance Scales. Solve simple equations using a balance beam representation. http://ciese.org/ciesemath/b3.html Lesson 7. 1 Probability of Equally Likely Outcomes Tossing Pennies. Use this applet to answer some questions about probability of tossing coins a lot of times! Lesson 7.2 Generating Random Numbers Rolling Cubes Game Lesson 7.7 Fair and Unfair Games Fair Game Dilemma
