Hi All -
Just a quick list of some recent math related finds.
Have a great weekend,
1. Rainforest Maths
I thought this site was better than typical drill types; nice sets of visuals accompany math problems organized by grade level. The same web author publishes a math dictionary and a writing help site. You can find these links at the bottom of the Rainforest Maths home page.
This is a project from the state of Georgia that seeks to improve the content knowledge of middle school math teachers. I was struck by the links within lessons to "constructionaries", small web demonstrations of various mathematical principles. The lessons seem to refer in general to many interactive sites including Interactivate, a site dedicated to math and science interactive tools. This page, in particular, has some great tools.
3. That Quiz
Create customized online math quizzes for students and track their progress at this web site.
This is a video library of math TV shows produced at Loyola University in Chicago. I used to watch this show with my students two schools ago, and I think it's great that the materials are now archived online.
5. Math.com's Homework Help Everyday Math
Everyday Math is a popular math program currently used in my previous and current schools.
6. Everyday Math Resources - Center School District
Find more resources here for using the Everyday Math series.
