Rotation and Balance


A Concept-Builder is an interactive questioning module that presents learners with carefully crafted questions that target various aspects of a concept. Each Concept Builder focuses the learner's attention upon a discrete learning outcome. Questions target that outcome from a variety of angles using multiple difficulty levels or varying activities. Learners ponder the given information and answer questions in the hopes of earning Stars and Medals. These Stars (for answering questions) and Medals (for completing levels or activities) are displayed on the screen, allowing a teacher to track student progress. The following Concept Builders target concepts associated with Rotation and Balance.
