Math is designed to get your students talking about math. Each of the
15 modules begins with an activity to introduce a math concept through
a strategic game with inherent math content or through a challenge that
can be solved using onscreen manipulatives. When students are ready,
they move on to the Brainteasers - a series of word problems designed
to stimulate discussion and learning. These Brainteasers introduce new
strategies and help students synthesize the ideas introduced in the
Use Enriched Math:
- As a class activity - Students work together to figure out the best
or different strategies to solve each math challenge. By presenting
their ideas to each other, students are able to build more convincing
mathematical arguments and, in the process, a deeper understanding of
- As an individual activity - Have students complete these activities
as part of their regular assignments. Enriched Math is also an ideal
enrichment activity for students who finish their class work ahead of
- develop transferable problem solving strategies
- acquire, consolidate and generalize mathematics concepts
- ‘ask’ questions – not simply ‘answer’ them

We think our products are great! But don't just take our word for it,
here's what teachers have to say...
"I was first introduced to Logo about 20 years ago at the University of Nebraska. About 10 years ago when the opportunity came up to teach a 6-week exploratory class for seventh graders, I knew right away that I wanted to use MicroWorlds! Now that MicroWorlds EX is out, the students are not only experiencing computer programming at their level of expertise, but I firmly believe that MicroWorlds builds a strong foundation towards a future computer science career."

"Here at Shabonee School, we have developed a math curriculum based entirely on MicroWorlds EX (...) The program provides students with the opportunity to investigate geometric concepts through the use of Logo computer language. In addition, students use and strengthen their logical thinking, problem solving, and other higher order thinking skills."
"Our experience with MicroWorlds EX is very positive and many of our students use the program for fun on their home computers."

"MicroWorlds EX is one of our core tool programs. Because of Logo's inherent mathematical structure, Logo activities are integrated into the math curriculum to teach important geometry concepts such as units of measurement, angles, scale, and shapes. Microworlds EX is a multipurpose tool program that provides an environment for children to work collaboratively and independently to develop problem solving skills."
