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 (126)

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.

Find exceptional activities, interactives, and lesson plans at this free site that focuses on real life math to raise the achievement of middle school students. Read about the "Project Descriptions" with great summaries and other information about the resources, view the "Standards and Concepts," and find other "Additional Resources." At the time of this review a few examples of the activities included "Scale City," "Math By Design," "Rock-n-Roll Road Trip World Tour," and "Proportionland." Click on the links to go to the appropriate resource. Be sure to test out the resources using a student computer prior to using in class.

tag(s): architecture (84), counting (120), measurement (159), ratios (53)

In the Classroom

Use any of these great resources to show how math concepts are used in everyday life. For example, use "Math by Design" as a scenario of how math and architecture are connected. Use the resource to design a nature center or park. Allow students to work in collaborative groups to make decisions and identify the math used to solve the problem. Demonstrate their understanding with a presentation that justifies their choices and how they arrived at their final project choice. Use conventional or multimedia resources to showcase the results and find a public audience. Consider using a wiki or Google Docs for collaboration and presentation. Use a variety of mind mapping applications such as Diagrammr to collaborate and create a flowchart. Take these projects one step further by proposing nature areas in your school campus. Students can take their ideas and resulting understanding of math to justify their design and propose it to the local school board or town council. Use many of these ideas to create your own real world math projects and activities.

BrainPops are 3- to 5-minute animated movies that provide a clear and concise explanation of Algebra 1 topics in an engaging manner. You may be familiar with BrainPop as a terrific, but fee-based service. A subset of their videos are available here for FREE. Videos are sorted by chapters in the textbook; however, they can be used in any Algebra classroom. Topics include commutative and associative properties, solving equations and inequalities, prime factors, Pythagorean Theorem, probability, and more. Most videos also include a short movie explaining the topic along with a quiz.

tag(s): equations (155), factors (42), fractions (239), inequalities (29), probability (130), pythagorean theorem (35)

In the Classroom

Share the videos on your interactive whiteboard or projector as an introduction to Algebra 1 concepts or as review. Share links to the videos in your classroom newsletter or website for students to access at home or for parents to use when helping students. Challenge students to create their own multimedia presentation of these concepts. Have students create their own simple videos using a site such as TeacherTube reviewed here. The two main characters of the BrainPops are engaging; maybe your students can create character pairs of their own to "explain" concepts.

Create your own motivational posters easily and simply. Choose a random picture (one from Flickr or Facebook) or use one already on your computer. Choose colors and other options as well as the type of text to be used. Enter your text and preview the result. Once complete, save to Flickr, your computer, or print. Remember you can use a saved image in PowerPoint shows and on a class wiki, as well as blogs and other sites.
This site includes advertising.

tag(s): collages (17), images (266), photography (160), posters (36)

In the Classroom

Make sure students are aware of copyright laws. Use this site to encourage proper use of photographs that students have the authorization to use. Model including appropriate photo credits on the posters. Check out the Big Huge Labs educator account. Easily pre-register students to avoid creating logins, view and download their creations, and view the site advertisement free. You will find information about the Educator Account here.

Younger students can use this tool together as a whole-class activity or simply enjoy the posters their teacher creates. Have students create a picture about a unit topic with a caption using new terms learned. For example, create posters about predators and prey or classifications of animals. Students can create a poster of a study skill or learning activity that helps them learn. Create a caption that explains how the student learns the best. Every subject area can use this resource to create interesting presentation posters for display or as springboards to talk about what was learned. For example, in Biology, students could create a poster about a cell part with a clever caption about the importance of the job. In Literature or History, students can create posters about the perspectives of others in the story or at that time of history. Rather than a traditional research project, have cooperative learning groups use this site to show their knowledge in any subject area. Ask students to apply concepts such as constitutional rights by illustrating them in poster images with captions. Teachers can create bulletin board images, as well. Have a classroom motivation poster competition to start off the school year! Share the winners on your class wiki or in a PowerPoint presentation at back to school night/open house. As special occasions approach, have students bring in or take a digital picture they can make into a poster as a family gift with their own inspirational saying. Create a portfolio of 6 word stories, utilizing a powerful picture and 6 words to demonstrate the concept that was learned. Assign students the task of placing their project on a blog with a larger explanation of their understanding of the concept used in the picture.

This site offers 17 problems and exercises for practice with basic Algebra skills. Concepts include terms and definitions, equations, formulas, expansion, simplifications, and factorization. Registration is available for the site, but not necessary to use the practice exercises and quizzes. Quizzes are offered in multiple choice and match the column formats. Feedback is immediate after choosing an answer, and quizzes can be printed out onto a worksheet form. Within each quiz there is also a link to review which offers further information about the topic contained within the question.

Be aware: this site does include many advertisements. Although the content is good enough to be worth the distracting ads!

In the Classroom

Introduce this site on your interactive whiteboard or projector, then allow students to access quizzes for review and reinforcement of concepts being taught. Share the site on your classroom website or blog for students to access at home for practice of skills. Print out quizzes for students to use as review. This site is perfect for gifted students to work ahead and practice upcoming concepts. Have cooperative learning groups create multimedia presentations to share a new concept with the class. How about creating a talking avatar explaining what they have learned using a site such as Blabberize (reviewed here). Or have students create online flashcards for practice using a site such as Brainflips (reviewed here).

This site offers practice with math and challenging problems for all grade levels. If you teach math to grades 1-12, this site is a MUST SEE. It contains a graduated set of over 1,000 problems starting from very easy and working up to very difficult levels. Each problem contains a short description and an image to help visualize the problem. Problems adapt to the skill of the person answering problems, grade levels cannot be increased until 5 correct problems in a row have been solved. The tests concentrate on understanding, spatial reasoning, and problem solving rather than math rules and theorems.

tag(s): decimals (133), fractions (239), logic (235), operations (126), order of operations (33), test prep (96)

In the Classroom

Share this site on your classroom newsletter or blog for students to access at home. Introduce the site on your interactive whiteboard or projector then create a link on classroom computers. Challenge students to progress through different grade levels and share problems with the class.

Put On Your Thinking Cap as you enter Flossville Town Park and Windjammer Environmental Center! Students are encouraged to think critically and problem solve as they encounter unique geometry and measurement challenges at this highly interactive website. How does it work? As students work through the tasks, they can access hints to help them along. These hints are brief math tutorials with explanations and examples. At any time, students may check their work to get feedback on how they are progressing. When students successfully complete a task, they are asked to "Make the Math Connection." This additional question was designed to reinforce students' knowledge of the math concept and provide another opportunity for students to apply their knowledge. Students can sign in to save their work. No email address is required to sign-in/register. Registering is especially helpful if a planned project takes several days. Students can also view "Math in Action" videos to see how people such as architects and cake designers use geometry and measurement concepts everyday in their jobs.

Be sure to visit the Teacher Resources section which includes standards, lesson plans, tips, and math in action videos.

tag(s): critical thinking (108), measurement (159), problem solving (272)

In the Classroom

Introduce the site on your interactive whiteboard or projector then allow students to explore on their own. This site is perfect for independent projects - students can create a multimedia presentation of information learned through the challenges, respond through journal entries over several days, or use this site as a resource day for career day projects. Include a link on classroom computers for students to use during free time.
