Tackle Math Ball

Winter is upon us! Football season is also underway. Let’s celebrate the season and brush up on math facts with Tackle Math Ball.


Game Instruction:

  • Step 1.) Choose your team, the computer (or opponent’s) team, and the time limit. When you play the computer, some teams are harder to beat than others. For example, you have only 4 seconds to answer math facts when you play the Pittsburgh Steelers, whereas you have 15 seconds to answer math facts when you play the Philadelphia Eagles.
  • Step 2.) Rumble down the field by answering math facts in the given time. On defense, you stop the opponent from advancing when you click on the math problem that matches the answer. Enjoy the game.

The “Pale Blue Dot”

This is a picture of Earth taken from the Voyager spacecraft just before it left our solar system. Voyager took 65 pictures to make this panoramic shot. It was many millions of miles away from Earth.

The picture has been called “The Pale Blue Dot”.

Can you see “us”? What is your reaction?
