In this game you click on all of the numbers that are divisible by the number the computer gives you. You can make the triangle larger or smaller to change the level of difficulty. You can also keep score.
Coloring Remainders in Pascal's Triangle
This game is similar to the previous game except that you will be looking for remainders left over after dividing the numbers by the number the computer gives you. You can make the triangle larger or smaller to change the level of difficulty. You can also keep score.
In this game you create an array that demonstrates the factors of a number given to you by the computer. After each correct answer you get to demonstrate another set of factors. When you have all of the factors, a happy face will appear.

Shape and Space
(Measurement, 2D Shapes and 3D Objects and Transformations)
Here you can create a shape by selecting the area. The game creates the shape and you type the perimeter. The game tells you whether or not your answer is correct and you can try new shapes that are the same or different sizes. Is the perimeter always the same if the shape's area is the same?
Here you adjust the maximum size of the shape, and the computer creates it for you. You calculate the area and perimeter and the computer tells you whether or not you are correct.
