Gizmos' sixth-through-eighth grade lessons are aligned to several Common Core standards and are organized by content area: Number & Operations, Algebra, Geometry, Measurement, and Data Analysis & Probability.

The Gizmos about data analysis and probability are particularly engaging. Try using a gizmo as a follow-up to your classroom instruction, viewing it first to find out what resources are available. Several gizmos come with a Student Exploration Sheet -- have kids complete the Prior Knowledge section with a partner. Then let them explore the Gizmo while completing the rest of the sheet. The assessment scores are tracked -- if possible, have kids complete these on their own after exploring the Gizmo.
