What educators are saying

My students loved this activity. They enjoyed being able to select a color fish, and solving operations with scientific notation.
I love this game! My kids love throwing the balls at my SMARTBoard to "reel" in a fish. I love it! Used it for multiple years!

Operations with Scientific Notation Gone Fishin' Game

This is a super fun PowerPoint game for students to practice operations with scientific notation. Students can either aim for the fish with a Koosh Ball (if playing with a Smart Board), or come up to the computer to select a fish. The fish really do swim around the screen, so it's a lot of fun and the kids love it. The types of problems are as follows:

Red Fish: Addition

Yellow Fish: Subtraction

Green Fish: Multiplication

Blue Fish: Division

There are 44 total problems, with 11 of each kind. Organizing by color really helps students see the method for each operation. Once a problem is selected, students write it down on their recording sheet. Once you click "Answer", they can check their answer.
