This site offers information about how to organize and assess a math fair, but more importantly, provides puzzles and resources to use. SNAP is an acronym for student-centered, non-competitive, all-inclusive, and problem-based. The purpose of a SNAP math fair is to provide a meaningful, problem-solving experience for all students. Puzzles are offered in 2 levels, plus there are river-crossing, and Sodoku puzzles. Each puzzle is explained and illustrated with the problem. One dilemma for the site creators was in how to provide the solutions as they realize that there are several methods for solving each puzzle. Answers are not provided; however you can email the site creators for answers.

tag(s): critical thinking (112), logic (243), problem solving (277), puzzles (207)

In the Classroom

Use puzzles as a center activity or challenge activity for students. Challenge students to complete the puzzles and explain the problem solving process to their classmates. Have them use use the puzzles and create your own Math fair, Math Fun Day, or Family Math night. Provide a puzzle of the week throughout the year for students to solve. Be sure to allow students time to solve puzzles on their own without any hints or tips!

Create a free account to this great resource site for teachers. After verification of your account, a login code is displayed for use with your students. Students use the login and type in their name before starting an activity. The site has resources for all subjects in the Middle school and High School levels. Audio support is available for the text. The engaging activities use lower-level thinking skills that engage higher order skills. The products work in the classroom in large part because teachers shape every phase of the planning and production process. This site uses standards and the Common Core to clarify the content in the core academic disciplines. The value of the resource lies in the focus on difficult to explain concepts that are enriched through the use of technology based resources using audio, video, and interactivity. Students "do" and "see" in order to understand the difficult concepts. Lessons have the following parts: classroom activity, web lesson, and project. InterActivities allow students to explore, apply, and analyze using online tools.

tag(s): africa (175), architecture (84), cells (105), europe (74), evolution (102), genetics (95), grammar (214), literature (275), motion (61), numbers (203), operations (126), probability (133), statistics (126), verbs (41)

In the Classroom

Use the more than 200 Interactive activities and 855 ready-to-use lessons to provide technology-rich lessons to teach many of the most difficult concepts in the core subjects. Use the variety of assessment options that are found within each lesson. Note the Quick Launch numbers on the resource you will be using to direct students to the correct activity. Example activities include a Web Inquiry which is a guided and self-paced investigation that is built around a focus question.

This excellent site consists of ideas for projects to use in Math fairs; however, there are many other uses for the ideas presented on this site. Titles and subjects such as Juice Box Geometry, Play-Doh Math, and more, are intriguing and sure to capture students' interest. Topics include geometry, estimation, measurement, and probability. Each project contains detailed directions including background knowledge required, materials, and variations to try. General grade level suggestions are also provided (for grades 1-10.) One activity includes a video to help understand the directions. Perhaps most interesting is the section at the end of each project that is composed of links to careers in mathematics that tie-in to the activities.

tag(s): estimation (47), experiments (73), probability (133)

In the Classroom

Choose a project to use as a center activity to complement current units being taught. Assign gifted students a project and then challenge them to share their findings with other classmates. Assign a project as homework or for extra credit. Allow students to videotape and present their project to the class then share on your website or class blog (with parental permission of course). Use a tool such as SchoolTube reviewed here or Prezi reviewed herefor students to present their findings to the classs.

Vi Hart's math videos, featured on this blog, have become very popular. They have even been featured on various cable shows. She also includes her Twitter information, so you can follow her. In the link, "Math Doodling," are several videos on doodling in the math classroom sure to entertain Math teachers and students alike. Each video also includes a written transcript. Titles include Stop-Motion Silly Band Fight, Sick Number Games, Snakes + Graphs, Stars, Binary Trees, and others. Be sure to also check out the link to Mathematical Food which contains demonstrations of slicing apples into Platonic Solids, slicing a cubic apple to find a regular hexagon, and how to arrange candy corn into Sierpinski's Triangle. Another wonderful resource is the link on balloons. Directions for making tetrahedrons, icosahedrons, and other shapes are all included.

tag(s): geometric shapes (170), humor (15)

In the Classroom

This site is perfect for a Math fun day! Share the video clips on your interactive whiteboard or projector or set them up as stations on laptops. After catching students doodling during Math class, show one of the doodling videos to show students how their doodles can really be productive! Your visual learners will love it. Have fun with balloons creating shapes demonstrated on the balloon page. Challenge students to create the shapes after being shown a picture -- but before seeing directions. Use some of the topics when researching ideas for Math Fairs or Math Nights at school. Provide this link for student to explore outside of the classroom. Even girls may find they like math presented in such humorous ways.

The videos are hosted on YouTube. If your district blocks YouTube, then they may not be viewable. You could always view that at home and bring them to class "on a stick" to share. Use a tool such as KeepVid reviewed here to download the videos from YouTube.

In the Classroom

Find a variety of topics for each subject area. For example, use learning objects in biology topics: How to use a Microscope, Life Cycles of Animals and Plants, and Cell Division. Choose from many others. Use as an introduction to a new unit. Additionally, these learning objects can be used for reinforcement or as a review. Under the Written Communication subject you will find 50 Learning Objects from parts of speech, commonly confused words, to how to summarize, brainstorm, and many others. Share direct urls to specific review activities to help students who need extra practice or as links on a class web page or wiki for all students to access outside of class. Encourage students to comment on your wiki about the learning objects they found most helpful in explaining tough concepts (use the discussion tab).

This is a simple, but highly engaging math trick that would be great for a problem-solving activity or class starter. To play, choose a 2-digit number, then subtract each of the digits from the original number (25 - 2- 5 = 18). Once that is done, go to next, find your original number and identify the gift associated with the number, at the next screen Robin will be able to tell you what the gift is. Students will enjoy experimenting with different numbers and solving for why this will work. The key is that all answers will be multiples of 9 and all of those multiples contain the same gift item!

tag(s): critical thinking (112), multiples (36), problem solving (277), puzzles (207)

In the Classroom

Display on your interactive whiteboard or projector and allow students to experiment with different 2-digit choices. Ask students to explore different options on how this works, then journal their solutions.

This site provides a resource for teachers who use, or are only beginning to use, a problem-centered approach. Varying in difficulty and approaches, these problems are useful for teachers, students, parents, math clubs, and home-schoolers. Problems are classified by topic, time required, suggested technology, required mathematical background, and habits of mind that students develop or use as they work. Synopses of the problems are keyword searchable. Answers and solutions are provided, and many problems include hints. Problems are available as html and as pdf documents. Each problem also has a link to view/add reader comments - this section may be useful for finding problem extensions or difficulties found when using problems. To become familiar with the site, there is a guided tour of the site, links to readers' favorite problems, and technical requirements. There is an extensive selection of teachers resources with answers to problems, goals and objectives, and preparations for class use.

This very simple looking site offers some valuable resources for Arithmetic, Trigonometry, and Functions. Each of these links provide basic information and facts for each of the topics through written explanations and images. Some of the explanations tend to get complicated and may be overwhelming; however, they may be useful as a starting point for classroom conversations when introducing or reviewing topics. Gifted students may appreciate this site as a way to receive more in-depth information on common math topics.
