Can You Fill It?

In this online math game from Cyberchase, learners are challenged to fill containers with water using three different sized pots. Learners select the combination of pots that will fill the containers with the fewest number of pours, without spilling over. This online activity could be used as an introduction to a hands-on measuring activity, or as a cleaner alternative to a hands-on measuring activity.
