Gizmos - ExploreLearning

Get hands-on with math and science Gizmos are online simulations that excite curiosity and invite interaction. We’ve got more than 400 Gizmos in our library covering topics and concepts in math and science for U.S. grades 3-12. Gizmos help students dig deeper into subjects and really understand challenging concepts. Gizmos give everyone something to visualize, manipulate, and compare. That’s hundreds of opportunities where students don’t just act like scientists and mathematicians. They are. Gizmos help students to make connections and draw conclusions with an interactive design that supports manipulation of variables and “what-if” experimentation. Every Gizmo comes with extensive teaching resources that help make planning and teaching easy. Whole group, small group, or 1:1 lessons, Gizmos has you covered. Play, explore, and experience the “ah-ha” moment with Gizmos. • Discover concepts. Interactive design allows for extensive manipulation of variables and “what-if” experimentation. • Analyze data. Visualizations and graphing tools help capture and compare results from experiments. • Go deeper. In-depth activities create more moments to explore, discover and apply new concepts. Our new interactive STEM Cases take Gizmos a step farther. STEM Cases put students in the role of STEM professionals tasked with solving real-world problems. Via interactive case studies, students form and test ideas to find solutions — just like real scientists. Gizmos offer both math and sci
