Division is can be a hard concept for some students to grasp. However, using this interactive website to explore how to chunk division algorithms could be a solution that eases the process of dividing. When given a problem, students use the "power of ten" buttons to multiply the given dividend to get as close to that number without going over. Then they subtract and click the equal button to see what number is left. By continuing this process until they reach a number that can not be subtracted further, students will be able to see a relationship between division and subtraction, making the whole process more clear. Students will gain confidence using chunking to divide algorithms that normally seem overwhelming.
Genetics is a hot topic in the field of science. Scientists are constantly gathering new information about how genes work and function in organisms. Learn.Genetics is a comprehensive site that explores the basics of genetics, characteristics of inheritance, stem cells, chromosomes, genetic variation, epigenetics, genetic science, cloning, genetic disorders, and much more. Topics are presented interactively with videos, virtual labs, games, and learning exercises. Information on the Genetic Science Learning Center is regularly updated with each topic explored in great detail. A feature of the site is Pigeon Breeding where students look at variations in pigeons to study inherited characteristics are products of genes.

This site's activities offer students unique ways of looking at and understanding states of matter. In the activity, “Materials Smackdown,” students choose a pair of materials to see which one is stronger. It gives information about each type of material and then allows the student to see which material is stronger/can withstand more pressure. In another activity called “The Transformer,” students choose between three materials: silicon, iron, and carbon, and see what they are able to transform it into by heating, treating, and/or applying pressure.

The key to a strong math background is a having a good grasp of all of the basic operation facts. Many times students struggle with higher level math concepts simply because they don't know their basic facts. How better to learn and practice those facts than with a fun game based on the children's game Memory? Flip over two cards and try to make a match between the correct answers with the dividends and divisors. Practice different division facts and work on increasing your speed as you play this fun interactive review game.
From the United Nations World Food Program, these games help students test their knowledge of a wide variety of subjects from famous paintings to flags of the world. At the same time, they are helping to end world hunger because the sponsors of the site donate rice to the World Food Program for every correct answer. Kids can start with the vocabulary quiz, then click the subjects tab to widen their knowledge.
PBS’s trademark documentary series, American Experience, has partnered with History Pin to use this digital platform to tell the story of abolitionists.
