# Activities Section of Mathigon

Updated: Feb 20, 2020

__Mathigon__, one of the best mathematical sources of the web, also has another treasure "__activities__"

In this section, you can find an __interactive timeline of
mathematics__, where you can click on each
mathematician to read about his/her contributions to
the field.

__Polypad__ is simply everything that a math a teacher
needs for the fundamental manipulatives of math
lessons.

There are fraction bars, algebraic tiles, tangram and pentominoes pieces, number tiles, polygons and grids to play with.

But today, I want to introduce you another activity more like a game from the page "__Factris__".

__Factris__ is an updated version of Tetris game. Where you can change the shape of the blocks according to their factors. I am addicted now, I am sure the kids will like to play with it too.

They can learn and practice about factors, prime numbers, area calculation while having fun ..

Enjoy :)
