Designed for the interactive whiteboard. A game to allow students to demonstrate that they can distinguish number groups. The resource presents ten bubbles bouncing around the screen. The first version of this IWB resource has 5 prime number bubbles and 5 non prime. The challenge is to burst all of the primes in as short a time as possible.
For younger students the second version has the same concept but presents odd and even numbers. The student needs to burst all of the odd numbers.
The resource is primarily designed to be used with an interactive whiteboard and so may be a little trickier with a mouse.
As a side note reference can also be made to science lessons ; the bubbles simulate the refraction of light. This is an effect that may labour slower computers.
