Measurement World

Measurement is a mathematics skill students encounter constantly in their daily lives. MEASUREMENT WORLD strengthens this skill through games that focus on Money, Time, Length, Distance, Area, Volume and Weights.

Equal Time / Passing Time

Helps younger students strengthen skills involving clocks and time. In the "easy" rounds of the game, students are shown panels displaying different time formats and asked to select panels that display equal times. More advanced modes of play show six panels. Time is displayed in a random mix of digital, analog or text format. Game intensifies as player's skill increases. Passing Time operates similarly to Equal Time, but adds more complexity, with a focus on ELAPSED time - rounds 3 and 4 include two-clock panels that provide practice calculating  ELAPSED TIME which is a weak spot for some students.

Equal Pay /Making Change

Helps students recognize and count denominations of coins and bills currently in circulation.* (Like many First In Math games, it also contains a few twists that encourage students to think 'outside the box'.) *All denominations up to $100 bills are included, with exception of the $2 bill as it is rarely encountered.

Area/Perimeter

Students select an area and a perimeter from the options given and then "draw" an object that is equal to BOTH the area and perimeter selected. Game 1: Given the Area and/or Perimeter, student must draw the matching object. Games 2 to 7: Select an Area and a Perimeter from up to two options for each, then draw the matching object. Games 8 to 15: Select an Area and a Perimeter from up to three options for each, then draw the matching object. Games presented in whole units or half units.

Equal Length / Equal Weight

Equal Length games help students compare lengths, using inches, feet, yards and miles. Students first select three bars that show equal lengths. Play U.S. Customary (feet/inches, etc.), Metric or Mixed versions of the game! Equal Weight games help students become comfortable with weights in U.S. Customary (ounces/pounds/tons), Metric or Mixed versions of the game!
