Scales Reader

This interactive Flash applet, suitable for whiteboard display, challenges learners to read metric weighing scales in four different ranges. The scales read 0-5 kilograms in wholes or halves, 0-500 grams, 0-1000 g, and 0-5 kg in decimal tenths. The student requests a weight, places a cursor, enters a reading, and checks the answer to receive a score.
