How Kids Can Use Colors to Explore Math Problem Solving on Z

For families, getting their kids to like math is not always easy, especially if the language isn’t easy for them to get their heads around. When it comes to applying math, like fractions and decimals, many kids shy away.

But kids will find an entirely new world of fun where they can make formulas come to life by converting them into a color-coded sticker puzzle, thanks to an innovative interactive program called Zillometer.

Zillometer uses photos of a building’s layout, and a color code of different colors linked to appropriate decimals, to change the application of math — allowing kids to solve problems with their hands and give them action as well as logic and creativity in figuring out math problems.

While there are various ways in which kids can use Zillometer, a program by What’s New Kids & Teens (WKYT), the most easy-to-understand lesson is the geometry of buildings, classes, houses, oceans and galaxies. Kids take pictures of their real-world structure and colored snap stickers, like stars, planets and starships, are quickly applied to the photos and added to the math process to create a story around the structure, with each building representing something inside the world itself.

Teaching kids about each page of a puzzle is one way to engage kids and have them make their own equations as they make their way through the story. For example, in the video above, a section of a fish tank in a home contains numbers that are on line with the plants on the floor. Once the stickers are applied, the page becomes much more interesting. Now kids can copy the numbers on the planet — watching out for big bugs, slugs and pill-shredding critters in the video below — and then draw the lines and add things they don’t want to see when the clock strikes 11 p.m.

In an installation meant to be interactive, WKYT is using a mural painting that includes an Instagrammable ocean to exhibit Zillometer. The Instagram filters on the wall can be tracked so a child can see how the life of the ocean is changing.
