Description: Math Snacks are short animations and mini-games designed to present mathematics in a very different way. In fact, we hope these snacks don't look like traditional math at all. Math Snacks give students, especially those who don't particularly like math, another way to look at math concepts. While Math Snacks are designed for middle school, they address content and have been used by students in grade 3 – 8. Math Snacks include learner guides kids can use and teacher guides to transfer a conceptual understanding to math problem solving. Teacher guides and printed transcripts of each animation are also available. Using Math Snacks on mobile devices, like the iPad, helps kids take the learning on the go. iPads and iPods are also great classroom tools, when you can't take the entire class to a computer lab.
