Fractions game links, a Preview of future work on Neuroplasticity and Learning **LINK updated**

In December, I will beginning a project I once did with my former class.  It is known as the Strength Based Resilience project.  This morning, I attended a workshop at Riverdale C.I. that coached some of the facilitators who will be running the project.  One of the keystones of this project is the idea that the brain is capable of changing.

There are a couple of games that look at a review of Factors and Multiples:
