Figure This! demonstrates challenging middle school mathematics and emphasizes the importance of high-quality math education for all students. This site provides interesting mathematical challenges that middle-school students can do at home with their families. Although the site targets middle school students, it can certainly be used with younger students who are strong in math as well as high school students. Its a site that you have to play around with for a few moments to figure out the ins and outs. But after the initial learning curve, its a wonderful resource. Warning! The colors are a waker upper. Funding for the project was provided by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the U.S. Department of Education.
