## Everyday Math for Preschoolers

Everyday Math for Preschoolers. The best way for preschool students to learn about the world around them is to live it every day -- whether it's by observing animal friends in the backyard, discovering new ways to get up off of the couch and get moving, or picking out shapes in a walk around the neighborhood.This KET collection uses original animation and wonderful, visual images to introduce basic concepts of math, science, and health to the youngest learners.

## Peg + Cat

The Peg + Cat on-air series and online resources provide many opportunities for educators to introduce or reinforce early math concepts. In each episode Peg and Cat find themselves thrust into the middle of a wacky word problem. This problem isn’t just an academic exercise for them—it’s a messy, funny, real-life crisis they have to solve to get out of trouble. They write out diagrams and charts on the graph paper that comprises their background. And somehow, they always find a way to solve the math problem and save the day. The resources in this collection include activity ideas, video clips, and online games.

Railroad Repair Using Decimal Addition. In this Cyberchase interactive game, Hacker has removed some of the tracks on the Trans-Cyberspace Railroad. The challenge is to repair the tracks so that the Cybertrain can get back to the central station. A set of spare tracks that range in length from 0.1 to 1.0 will be used to fill in the gaps. In many cases it will be necessary to use a combination of two or three pieces to fill in the missing part of the track. All the gaps on the screen must be filled before the train will move.

## Graphing Inequalities: Rational Numbers

Graphing Inequalities: Rational Numbers. In this interactive, use logic to solve three riddles involving a jumping wallaby competition. Then, using knowledge of inequalities and rational numbers, place the wallabies on the correct range from –5 to 5 on the number line. Numbers are randomized so that the range on the number line is different each time the riddles appear. The accompanying classroom activity includes a concept review and response sheets to support the online work.

## Inverse Proportions and Shadows in the Real World

Inverse Proportions and Shadows in the Real World. In this video, students take a quick trip through the history of drive-in theaters and are then asked to consider the question, What is the relationship between the size of an object’s shadow and the object’s distance from a light source? In the accompanying classroom activity, students do a hands-on experiment about the size of their own shadows at different distances from a projector or other light source.

## Fractions, Mixed Numbers, and Decimals on the Number Line

Fractions, Mixed Numbers, and Decimals on the Number Line. In this interactive, students use logic to solve three riddles involving a frog jumping contest and then place the contestants’ jumps at the correct points on the number line. Numbers are randomized so that the frogs’ placements on the number line are different each time one of the three riddles appears. The accompanying classroom activity provides a review of equivalent values of fractions and decimals and a response sheet to help students work with the interactive.

## Subtracting Positive and Negative Numbers | The Matrix and Batman

Subtracting Positive and Negative Numbers | The Matrix and Batman. This episode of Math Club parodies the Matrix and Batman to explore the concept that subtraction is merely addition by adding the opposite. Does subtraction exist? Take the red gift card and find out. Addition and subtraction are two sides of the same coin and can be used to explain lots of things: elections, good and bad feelings, even retelling the plot of the Dark Knight. When the Matrix asks you to add long strings of positive and negative numbers for homework, we explain a neat little trick to help you out.

Math in Basketball. Following a profile of Elton Brand, an accomplished basketball player who uses math in his work, students are presented with a mathematical basketball challenge. In the challenge, students focus on understanding the Big Ideas of Algebra: patterns, relationships, equivalence, and linearity; learn to use a variety of representations, including modeling with variables; build connections between numeric and algebraic expressions; and use what they have learned previously about number and operations, measurement, proportionality, and discrete mathematics as applications of algebra. Self-paced lesson.
