Grades9 to 12
In the ClassroomBookmark this site for use during your unit on data and probability or to provide hands-on activities throughout the year. Share interactives on your whiteboard or during small group lessons and discuss problem-solving ideas with students. Add a link to interactives along with other online games to your class website for game play at home. Consider adding favorite links from this site to a bookmarking tool for student use. Padlet, (reviewed here), offers several options for sharing and organizing bookmarks. After completing lessons or activities, ask students to reflect upon their learning and share problem solving ideas through a blog post. Telegra.ph reviewed here, creates "quick and easy" blogs to be used one time only. A unique URL is provided, and with Telegra.ph you just click on an icon to upload images from your computer, add a YouTube or Vimeo, or Twitter links. It's as easy as using a basic Word program!

In the ClassroomThis site began with the owner's desire to share lessons with homebound students making it a perfect accompaniment to classroom instruction. Be sure to take advantage of the free worksheets and resources to use with your students. Share a link to videos on your class website for students to view at home. Ask them to watch videos before you teach content in class. If you typically view videos then discuss questions in class, try using Flipgrid, reviewed here, to take questioning and collaboration to a new level. Upload a WooTube video to your Flipgrid account, then have students record their questions and thoughts. Have students respond to comments made by peers, then discuss both content and student responses in the classroom.
In the ClassroomUse the Desmos calculator in place of expensive graphing calculators that many students may not have. Be sure to provide the link on your teacher page or wiki for easy access. Before assigning tasks in your 1:1 classroom, check for access on devices. Some tasks work on all devices; others may not work on mobile devices. These activities are perfect to accompany any graphing tasks. Assign more difficult tasks to higher achieving students, then ask them to create video explanations of their work using an online tool such as Free Screen Recorder Online, reviewed here, or Rooclick, reviewed here, and share them on a site such as SchoolTube, reviewed here. Visual learners will love the activities on this site as they learn math vocabulary and concepts.
