From an unlikely source - America's codebreakers - comes this collection of very thorough lesson plans dealing with mathematics concepts for elementary, middle school, and high school students. These lessons are all Adobe Acrobat files written by teachers, not cryptographers. Each of the three sections is subdivided into age-appropriate thematic areas, and the lessons include student activities, standards correlations, and evaluation rubrics. This one's well worth a look.

tag(s): mental math (29)

This site provides practice with patterns, relations, and functions through the tale of the the Tortoise and the Hare. The amount of the tortoise's head-start can be changed, then take the racers through the various stages to find out who wins! Students will enjoy predicting the winner while watching the race unfold. The instructor's section provides detailed information on standards addressed, classroom questions, and links to similar resources. There is also a link to downloadable exploration questions that can be used in conjunction with the site.

tag(s): estimation (47), functions (71), measurement (164), patterns (85)

In the Classroom

Provide students with a copy of the explorations questions to complete alone or with a partner. Use on your interactive whiteboard for a quick 5 minute filler, change the amount of the tortoise's head-start each time to offer different outcomes each time. Ask students to predict the outcome of each race before beginning, allow changes midway, and discuss what is happening to change students' opinions.
