## Interactive Resources

Math Glossary The resource is a glossary of Mathematics words based on the WNCP, partitioned by division. The majority of words at every division will have an interactive component (JAVA or FLASH) to help illustrate the meaning of each word. In division one and two (where possible), real world pictures to illustrate each word will be included.

Math Continuum This resource contains a series of interactive mathematics problems, activities, and games. Topics covered in the resource include fractions; integers; order of operations; percentages; rates and ratios; equations; patterns; angles; interpretation of data; area; polygons; circles; circumference; the Pythagorean Theorem; volume and capacity; central tendencies; and graphs.
