Let your students have fun and explore with their own examples with this interactive activity. They will input any number they want and watch as the machine spits out a number depending on the secret rule. It’s up to the students to figure out the rule from the given choices. For fun, there will be a timed activity where they have to figure out the rule before the hour glass empties. At the end will be the Challenge section where students will be scored depending on how many they get correct. They will receive immediate, personalized feedback when they submit an answer.
This activity is unique to the Teachers Pay Teachers website. It will be like having another teacher in your classroom. The students should be able to work independently on each of these activities and will receive feedback while working through each section.
The main file is in pdf format and should play on all computers. I've provided another folder in other formats (html, htm, flv), so that it can be used on tablets or uploaded to an online course. If you choose this route, make sure to upload the entire folder and then make one format your main file.
You can also send this file by email to your parents so they can practice with their children at home.
