Great New Find
I recently found a website called "Hoodamath" (hoodamath.com), and my students and I are in love with it! It has games, tutorials, worksheets, and movies, but my students love to play one game in particular. The games are in separated in geometry, arithmetic, and logic games, and the logic games is where you will find "Sugar, Sugar." It is a problem-solving game where you have to direct falling sugar in cups. Sounds simple, right? And it is for the first couple of rounds, but it becomes increasingly complex, and I even had to replay a couple of rounds in order to successfully pass them! This has been a great addition to teach problem-solving and perserverance in those spare minutes or as a reward!
