Put math (and related science) fears behind you with podcasts with text transcripts from The Math Dude. The Math Dude makes complex math problems easy to decipher with his easy to follow explanations and tips. Listen to podcasts while viewing text explaining common math questions from basic algebra through SAT prep questions. Be sure to check out the "The Math Dude's Most Popular Tips" and "The Math Dude's Archives." Download podcasts as MP3 files and play through iTunes, QuickTime Player, and RealPlayer installed on a local computer. You can also simply play them from the site. Just be sure you click on the podcast play button and not one of the annoying videos or other ads! This site is loaded with advertisements. However, there is some great material underneath them all. NOTE: This site includes tools for blog users to interact with others. Any visitor can comment on the posts and podcasts or participate in Forums. There are also links to other tip blogs on the web page. Check your school policies on students posting comments, etc. to the web and whether they are permitted to do so anonymously and/or with name or initials.
This site includes advertising.

tag(s): measurement (164), operations (123), podcasts (57), problem solving (286)

In the Classroom

Check ahead of time to be sure this site is not blocked at school. If it is blocked, consider subscribing to the blog via iTunes to avoid all the ads. External speakers connected to the computer will help broadcast the sound throughout your classroom. Help students follow along by opening the podcast article (transcript) ad-free using the Readability add-on reviewed here for your web browser. Project the ad-free article as you play the podcast. Share the link on your class web page or select specific episodes links to offer support for concepts you are studying, such as absolute value or sine/cosine. Extend the concept of The Math Dude by having students write and produce their own math tip podcasts or English tip podcasts to explain the grammar demons that haunt their writing. Use a site such as Spreaker (reviewed here).

This tool is much like a trip advisor for your online learning. Find information to help with courses, learn for personal enjoyment, improve professional skills, or develop a hobby, passion, or interest. Choose your path, then select from subjects or topics. Topics vary from Psychology to Literature to Engineering and countless others. Choose your learning style: from visual, audio, interactive, words, structured learning, learning at your own pace, or blended (a variety of the rest). Choose the time you have to spend as well as cost you are willing to pay, including free. What you get is a list of online courses and materials from which to choose. As these are mostly university open courses, the resources are useful to increase your knowledge or those of upper level students. Copyright law would prohibit teachers from using the materials on this site as their own.
This site includes advertising.

tag(s): advanced placement (24), learning styles (20)

In the Classroom

Use this resource to learn information to increase your knowledge and extend learning beyond the textbook. Link to this site from your gifted resource page.

Explore this free curriculum for applying algebra in the creation of videogames. Students create code and learn the basics of program design and not just writing code. Though workshops are available to attend, at a cost, materials for teaching are also found online in HTML or PDF form. After Bootstrap I, continue with Bootstrap II which applies the fundamentals of Trigonometry. The activities align with Common Core Math and Engineering standards. Code writing in Bootstrap uses a tool that requires a Gmail account. Some of the video clips are hosted on YouTube. If your district blocks YouTube, then they may not be viewable. You could always view the videos 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.

Solve Calculus and Algebra problems step by step using cym@ath's problem solver. Begin by choosing an action from the drop-down box: solve equation, simplify, or other choices. Then enter the problem. Problems automatically format as you enter them. Click Solve to view the step by step process to obtain the answer along with rules used, if applicable. Click on the rule to view an explanation and example. Scroll through links to all reference material. Never before has "solve for X" been so instantaneous! You can even copy a direct link to the solution to share it with others.

tag(s): equations (149), factoring (31), fractions (228), problem solving (286), quadratics (33), quotations (25)

In the Classroom

This site is perfect for use on your interactive whiteboard or projector. Use with practice problems or when comparing different processes for obtaining solutions. Create a link on classroom computers for students to use when checking work. Share a link on your class website for students to use at home. Have students provide their attempts at problem solving. Print the solution using cym@th. Have students share where they were stuck or having problems in finding a correct answer. How do you prevent this from becoming an instant homework "cheat"? Always start with actual word problems, not equations, so students must first generate their own equations. Require students to "show their work" on paper as they solve, including the explanation of each step. Even if they are copying from the web site, they are still copying down the explanations. If they use their own words, that will show comprehension. How else could you prevent using this tool as a "cheat"? Feel free to add a comment!

Glean offers a repository of over 14,000 Math and Science videos from many sources across the web, curated and organized by teachers. Explore and find videos by browsing through topics or type your keyword into the search bar to find available topics. Glean provides the video most relevant to your search along with alternatives. Unfortunately, many Glean video pages do not show the creator/source of the original video. Most videos offer an option to click below the video to view a description of contents. Help Glean know what learning style works best for you by choosing icons to indicate your satisfaction. Choose from options including humor, hands-on help, or challenging thinking. Ask questions using links or go to alternative videos for additional choices. Register on the site to subscribe to specific teacher-curator feeds and to make the most of your viewing choices as you continue to rate and watch videos. Many of the videos are hosted on YouTube. If your district blocks YouTube, then they may not be viewable. You could always view the videos 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. Click the YouTube icon below the Glean display to view the video from its YouTube page and get the direct url to use with KeepVid.

If you integrate children's literature with math (and who doesn't?) this is a must-see site. Choose from several different elementary topics or go to links for middle and high school teachers to find book suggestions. Each topic provides a list of matching books including author, grade, and comments. This site, though rather "plain vanilla," offers highly useful booklists that you will want to save!
This site includes advertising.

tag(s): counting (111), decimals (125), fractions (228), literature (272), logic (236), measurement (164), money (182), number sense (98), operations (123), percent (80), preK (292), probability (131), ratios (58), statistics (126), time (139)

In the Classroom

Bookmark and save this site for finding literature to match to math content throughout the school year. You may want to list this link on your class website for parents to use to find literature to read to their younger student. Challenge your secondary students to read one of the books... for math class! For further math-related, leveled book suggestions for student independent reading, try TeachersFirst's CurriConnects list, Math in Use.

This tool (currently in Beta) is an amazing geometry playground. Select points on your screen and connect them. On tablets, draw roughly with your finger (such as a circle), and the tool will generate a real circle. Use the Help page to identify the gestures that can be used on a tablet. The interface uses icons that are easy to find and follow. This web tool is designed to work on mobile browsers on any device.

tag(s): DAT device agnostic tool (173), functions (70), geometric shapes (171), perspective (11)

In the Classroom

This tool is great for creating and visualizing math concepts from basic geometric shapes and area to complex constructions and trig. Use on a whiteboard or with a class projector for interactive classroom use. Save or retrieve creations with Dropbox, reviewed here or Google Drive, reviewed here. Use for hands-on work with any geometry or trigonometry functions. Since this tool works on such a variety of devices, it would be ideal to use in a BYOD (or 1:1) geometry class. Art teachers who want to "draw in" their more mathematical students can offer this as a design option, especially when teaching about perspective.
