  • Villany Story Game
  • Cool Math:

    • Coffee Shop Game Coffee Shop A great business game where you run your own coffee shop.  You have to plan your budget, your recipe and how much to charge.  Be sure to keep your customers happy!
    • Lemonade Stand Game Lemonade Stand  This has been one of our top games since 2000!  The teacher's favorite game.  Help Stinky and Bubba run their lemonade stand.  How much money can YOU make?
    • Sudoku Game Sudoku This is your standard Sudoku game.  I find these puzzles to be really difficult, but I LOVE this one because it lets me ask for hints!  Gives a new puzzle each time too.
    • Greater Than Sudoku Game Greater Than Sudoku This is like Sudoku, but with a twist.  Not only do you have to fill in the large squares with the digits 1-9, you also must obey the greater than signs!
    • Kakuro Game Kakuro  I thought this was impossibly hard at first.  The key is to fill in all single squares first, then look for doubles and up.  Cool that you can ask for hints!
    • Vex Game Vex  This game is just like my other favorite, Stained Glass, but with numbers instead of colors.  Lots of thinking, but I love these things.

Creating a Spinner to Examine Experimental and Theoretical Outcomes
Simulating the Spread of a Wildfire Using Probability
Create a game spinner with variable sized sectors to look at experimental and theoretical probabilities. Parameters: Sizes of sectors, number of sectors, number of trials.

Experiment with probability using a fixed size section spinner, a variable section spinner, two regular 6-sided dice or customized dice.

In this applet you can adjust the parameters on two Gaussian curves to determine if there is a possibility of a difference between the two means.

Create a game spinner with one to twelve sectors in order to look at experimental and theoretical probabilities. Parameters: Number of sectors, number of trials.
