This #2minPD video describes how to use ThingLink, a free web-based tool, to "pre-teach" new content to students. Ever have students finish a test earlier than you thought they would? Wish you'd planned a meaningful task for students to engage in during this awkward time?
Different from other presentation apps, 30hands Mobile focuses on the power of storytelling and ITERATIVE CREATIVITY(TM). Drag photos, images or video clips around the desktop into the order of the story. Next, record audio over each image. Easy editing allows students to take learning to a higher level and creates a better final video whether created by student or teacher. Finally, the presentation can be published to the Camera Roll or uploaded to a 30hands Cloud collaborative learning site.

Learn and practice the fundamental concepts about fractions including addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. Extensions to fraction include algebra (introduction through Find x questions), decimal and percentage. 2 games are provided to make these fraction drills fun. Tic-Tac-Toe is a 2-player game where players take turn to mark the board and work on fractions. Word Galaxy is a single-player game that will flex the left and right hemisphere of the brain while the player solves fraction questions and a word/phrase puzzle.

Comparing Fractions
This extremely versatile game can be used as both a teaching tool and independent skill reinforcement. By projecting the game onto an interactive whiteboard, you can model mathematical thinking and address student misconceptions. Then have students play on their own or with partners for fun and meaningful hands-on practice.

You will be shown a fraction and your job is to estimate the decimal equivalent by placing a nest on a number line. Our hens are mathematical experts and they will fire their eggs towards the correct answer. If your estimate is good the eggs will be caught in the nest but if you're too far out it all gets very messy. Web based version also available.
Video Tutorial
Fractions on a Number Line
Learn what decimal numbers are, and see how decimals are related to fractions. Along the way, find decimals on the number line, convert between fractions and decimals, and compare decimals. Community Questions

Math 4 Raft Race is a mathematical game that has players use math skills to find supplies to build a raft before the race starts. The players need to complete tasks in four different areas to earn their supplies. At the beginning of each store (level) there is a short story about what you will need to be working on. There is an option to skip the story if you are ready to get right to work. As you navigate through the store there are tips on how to answer upcoming questions. Once you have answered enough questions to receive one item from each of the four stores you can build your raft and race.
