Learning List recently reviewed** ExploreLearning’s Gizmos. **This supplemental, web-based product supports math and science instruction across grades 3-12. Instruction is inquiry-based. *Gizmos* are content-specific simulations and virtual manipulatives that provide students with dynamic, hands-on opportunities to explore math and science concepts in fun and meaningful ways.

Across grades, *Gizmos* are housed in searchable libraries for math and science. Libraries are structured by grade band (e.g. 3-5) and topic. The math library is broadly organized in topics that include: numbers and operations, algebra, geometry, measurement, and data analysis and probability. Each topic includes sub-topics with one or more content-specific simulations (e.g., estimation using a number line). Each sub-topic *Gizmo* has a short overview of the simulation, learning objectives, a list of new vocabulary, and feedback from the *Gizmos’* user community. [Read more…]
