Book and CD

A collection of math activities, in print and CD format, that:

  • Lets you use the latest version of the award-winning MicroWorlds Logo program to support your math curriculum in meaningful, dynamic, flexible ways.
  • Helps students visualize mathematical ideas.
  • Addresses concepts in: Number and Operation, Geometry, Algebra and Probability. Great for Problem Solving and making connections to other subjects.
  • Stimulates classroom conversations about math concepts and problem solving strategies.
  • Lets students experience mathematical thinking in a unique way -different from other math software.
  • Encourages students to apply mathematical facts and ideas while developing their own creative computer activities.
     

No previous knowledge of MicroWorlds EX is required!


Organized into six units:

  • Visualizing Math
  • Exploring Randomness with Art
  • Exploring Geometry
  • Exploring Math Patterns
  • Exploring Probability
  • Exploring Math through Games and Math Machines


Designed to be used with MicroWorlds EX program, the CD includes step-by-step tutorials, completed models of each activity, and additional math activities developed by educators from around the world.

Enhance your students' critical thinking and problem solving skills as they:

  • Use coordinates and turtle geometry to understand angles, shapes and symmetry.
  • Build their own mathematical simulations and games.
  • Create visual representations to explore patterns.
  • Make links between math and different subject areas, such as art and music.
  • Plus much more!

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."

Tom J. Price Norris Middle School Firth, Nebraska

"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."
