Calling math, engineering and physics game fans who enjoy thinking outside the box - both children and adults! Libra is a multi-level, equilibrium-based physics game and online creative thinking exercise where you must strike a balance on a classic, two-sided scale by adding an equal (or close to equal) weight of Tetris-style blocks on each side.
Featuring a whopping 48 levels, your analytical and lateral thinking skills are sternly tested as you attempt to balance the scales amid some quirky rules and stipulations (for example, complete horizontal rows of blocks on a scale get eliminated from the equation).
This demanding, interactive mathematical and creative thinking challenge requires logic, the ability to think creatively and use your imagination to solve the problems, prediction skills, and the key ability to learn from your mistakes (adding, removing, and re-positioning weights is commonplace).
Engineering enthusiasts and science game buffs should be in their element here, while this game could also be used by teachers as a helpful cognitive development activity and creative thinking reinforcement exercise for elementary school students, middle and high school aged children. Now, are you the one who will finally bring balance to proceedings?
Lever Physics is a challenging, math, physics and equilibrium-based game for upper elementary school / middle school students, high school teens and grownups where you must place and balance weights (fun items and characters) on a ‘seesaw-style’ beam connected to the ground by a pivot (fulcrum). Playing against the clock, you must place any available weights onto the lever (beam), and try to keep it perfectly balanced in the middle.
Some quick physics revision: A lever is a simple mechanical device which consists of a beam or stick or rod, and helps to lift weights with less effort. To be effective (as a lever), it must have a support to pivot on. This pivot is called a fulcrum. Levers can then be used to exert a large force over a small distance at one end of a structure by exerting only a small force over a greater distance at the other end of the same structure (beam). (Physics teachers - Brief correction welcome here if needed..!)
The Law of Equilibrium: A lever is in equilibrium when "the load" and "the effort" balance each other. The effort (weight) multiplied by its distance from the fulcrum = the load (weight) multiplied by its distance from the fulcrum. This law of equilibrium is true for all classes of levers.
For example, 2 pounds of effort exerted 4 feet from the fulcrum will balance 8 pounds located 1 foot on the other side of fulcrum. This effort times (multiplied by) distance about the fulcrum is the "Torque" (rotational force).
Back to Lever Physics Flash game!: Don't be fooled by the fun and playful imagery in this load balancing brain-teaser! It is a tricky, analytical thinking puzzle and logic problem solving challenge that requires good observation skills and hard thinking combined with mathematical and engineering solutions.
This interactive, point-and-click activity allows some trial and error (by quickly placing, removing and re-positioning weights) but you definitely cannot delay your decisions for long as the clock is ticking fast! Ok Balancing Master, can you ‘lever’ yourself to the top of the class?
Nedrago Memory Cards is a challenging tile matching puzzle game where you must match pairs of identical picture tiles on a series of increasingly-large grids.

The result is a set of increasingly-difficult matching puzzles where you must match up counterpart tiles from both the left and right hand sides of the game grid.
This fun and stimulating, point and click, memory-based brain teaser requires good visual awareness, cognitive skills, concentration and short-term memory.

Although this is a math game at its core (some addition math skills are beneficial), keeping control of the sliding tiles is the key aspect. This requires good analytical thinking and problem solving skills, patience, concentration, determination, good strategy, savvy keyboard or swipe control skills - to visually and mentally figure out and make the optimum next move in line with your goal. There is no time limit, so a careful and measured approach is definitely the way to go here. It's time to double up, and double up again, and double up again…!
