Dunk Tank is a maththemed game show created by the producers of Cyberchase and starring Harry from Cyberchase For Real. Using a combination of video and interactive gaming, each program addresses a single topic in the 6th grade math curriculum and s...tudents compete with themselves for high scores. Dunk Tank is an independent learning experience for students to complete in 1530 minutes, depending on their proficiency, and can also be used to support teacherled instruction. In this interactive, Harry explains key concepts about finding the area of squares, rectangles and composite shapes, including measuring with unit squares and using the formula Length x Width to calculate area. Students play Polygonathon, a minigame that challenges them to make simple polygons and find their areas; watch a comic video about using a nonstandard unit of measure – sleeping bags! – to calculate how many friends can come for a sleepover; and answer other questions designed to help them further their understanding of area. Students can access support using a glossary, defining key math terms, and a menu of short segments to rewatch.
