The Super Sequencer lets you practice number patterns using any number including decimals. Just input your starting number, decide on the increment (change), and you are off! You can even choose a counting speed of slow, medium or fast. Sound effects are included! This would be a great resource to practice counting by two, five, etc. or multiplication facts. Increase fluency and number sense.

tag(s): counting (119), decimals (133), fluency (23), fractions (239), multiplication (227), number sense (96)

In the Classroom

Use on your interactive whiteboard or projector to practice multiplication facts. Start at 0, input the number fact you want to practice, choose a speed and challenge students to keep up! Demonstrate the change when adding decimals by inputting decimal amounts and watching the increasing values. Create a learning station with this site on your whiteboard for small groups to practice multiplication, number patterns, basic counting, or decimals.

This site offers 30 probability activities based on questions. Answers are deliberately left out. The reasoning behind the site and the activities is thoroughly explained in the Teacher Support Section. Two different types of activities are offered - essential questions which are more generally and offer exploration of conceptual understanding, and QHE which are based on a hypothesis-experiment-instruction model. The activities include Java applet interactives. There is also a student support section which links to a student forum. Use of the forum isn't necessary to complete the activities on the site. In addition, there is a technology support link that offers information on technology found on the site such as information embedded onto Excel spreadsheets. The site is aligned to the IB curriculum but can be used elsewhere.
This site includes advertising.

tag(s): probability (130), problem solving (272)

In the Classroom

Introduce the site on your interactive whiteboard or projector then assign students various portions of the site to explore or discuss within small groups. This site is great for gifted students to proceed at their own pace, allowing them many different activities to explore different types of probabilities through activities and essential questions.

This site is a compilation of many math and science resources along with a social networking component. Currently there are almost 2000 activities, lessons, and videos and the site is constantly growing. There are several ways to use the site both as a registered user or without registration. Without registering for the site you can search and access lessons and information through the different search methods such as keywords, subjects, source institution, and more. Free registration allows the site to become much more personalized. After registering, you can make lists of resources for any different topic, share lists or searches with others, add comments, or add your own resources. Most activities on the site are free; however, there are some searches that deliver lessons that are paid - these are clearly indicated and not frequent enough to discourage use of this site. Searches can also filter out any paid activities and return only free items. Teachers may also want to subscribe to the site's blog and newsletter to receive updated information as it is added to the site.

In case you are wondering about the title, SMILE is the Science and Math Informal Learning Educators pathway of the National Science Digital Library (NSDL).

Enjoy NASA's images of planets and spacecraft used in space exploration. This site is a great reference site for concise information about planets, and spacecraft. An online glossary contains space terms, and the origins of names for planets, moons, or spacecraft that are from Greek mythology, Latin, or famous people. Spacecraft information includes the assembly, lift off, and mission information. Spacecraft information comes in an audio format too. A CD is offered for sale from the National Space Science Data Center.

tag(s): earth (228), planets (123), solar system (119), space (205)

In the Classroom

In science, this site easily lends itself to planetary studies. Science classes can compare mass, density, atmospheric components, and surface materials. Math classes can use information provided for many real life math applications comparing distances, revolutions, temperatures, distance from the sun, mass, and diameter. Practice place value and estimation in a universal way. An extra challenge for gifted students can easily lend itself to mean, median, and mode as well as graphing possibilities. Consider Earth day activities to focus on the uniqueness of our planet and the qualities of our planet to maintain life as we know it. Include as a reference on your web site, or as an informational piece to web quests in math or science. Challenge students to create multimedia presentation highlighting one of the planets or spacecrafts. Have students narrate an image using a site such as Thinglink, reviewed here. For quicker projects, create electronic "posters" or word graphics for adopted word using tools such as Piclits, (reviewed here,) or Typogenerator, (reviewed here).

Create graphs by entering an equation or selecting an equation from the drop-down and watch what happens!. Try entering raw data for analysis. MathTrax graphs the equations and provides descriptions of those graphs using both text and sound, which is great for those with limited vision, weaker readers, or who need auditory cues. The text descriptions can be read by Java-capable screen readers such as Jaws for Windows, or can be inputted into speech synthesizing software to create self-voicing applications. MathTrax provides color and line settings for drawing graphs to aid users with different vision-impairments.

tag(s): charts and graphs (195), equations (155), functions (70)

This site provides interactives for practicing many different math skills. Each are categorized by a theme such as number facts, money, and subtraction. For those not sure what activity to try, recommended interactives by grade level are listed on the left portion of the site. On the right is a list of activities included under each category. This site has a lot to explore for all elementary students.

In the Classroom

Make a shortcut to this site on classroom computers and use it as a center. Include a link to the site on your classroom website or blog for student to practice at home. This is a great site for students to use for additional practice on a skill that is difficult. Make your interactive whiteboard a student-run center for student partners to practice as they think aloud with each other. Or use this site for enrichment for your highly able students.

This site provides a scientific calculator and standard calculator that can be displayed on an interactive whiteboard/projector or embedded into a website or blog. The calculator has a dropdown box to display the recent history of calculations which may be useful to retrieve recent problems. To embed the calculator into a blog or website, find the "widget" link in the top, right-hand portion of the website. After clicking the link, copy and paste the code to embed the calculator horizontally, vertically, or with a minimal (just standard calculator) display.

tag(s): calculators (41), operations (125)

In the Classroom

Display the calculator on your interactive whiteboard or projector when working through problems or checking class homework. Display on the interactive whiteboard and have a student "Vanna White" model new procedures on the IWB as others work problems at their seats. (The class can "bump" Vanna if he/she makes an error!) Have students practice this tool at an interactive whiteboard center or sidebar. Embed the widget on your class blog or website for students to have any-time access to a scientific or standard calculator. Display on your interactive whiteboard/projector and play "beat the calculator" - assign a problem and play to see if students can solve the problem mentally before the answer appears on the calculator.
