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 circles including: parts of a circle, how to calculate diameter and circumference and pi. Students play Find Tuffy, a minigame that challenges students to measure and use the radii of circles to find a missing dog; watch a lighthearted video highlighting confusion between a circle’s diameter and its circumference; and answer other questions designed to help them further their understanding of circles. Students can access support using a glossary, defining key math terms, and a menu of short segments to rewatch.
