Mathwizz.com provides help with many math related topics ranging from arithmetic to decimals to financial math. Interactive calculators allow students to test their own knowledge. Brief lessons or descriptions provide simple explanantions to various concepts.

tag(s): calculators (42), decimals (124), fractions (225)

In the Classroom

Use this site as an informal assessment by having students complete a number of questions and then report their results to you. Many of the tests will require additional paper for solving problems. This activity would work well for individuals or pairs of students in a lab or on laptops, and would also be a great way to have a team competition as students use the site on an interactive whiteboard and try to solve problems.

The Common Core State Standards Initiative is a nationwide effort led by the National Governor's Association and the Council of Chief State School Officers to establish a common set of educational standards which aligns benchmarks and expectations across state lines. This system builds on what states are already doing by providing an opportunity to share experiences, best practices, and lessons, while maintaining high expectations that insure the quality of education across America to enable our students to maintain a competitive edge in the global economy.

Visit this website to find out exactly what the national K-12 standards are for English language arts and literacy in history/social studies, science and technology, as well as mathematics, and to find out if your state is one many states (at the time of this review) that have already committed to adopt the Common Core State Standards. Watch videos and the recorded webinar, and read about the key points and rigorous curriculum standards, including the content and skills related to the use of media and technology for critical analysis and production.

tag(s): commoncore (96)

In the Classroom

Take a look at exemplars and sample performance tasks and students' writing to consider how you can integrate these ideas into your own planning to prepare students for the growing challenges of today's world. You can also sign up to receive updates via email. For more information about the Common Core and implementing it in your classes, see TeachersFirst's Common Core: The Fuss Over Non-Fiction, a Q/A article for elementary teachers, and TeachersFirst's resources tagged Common Core for many helpful sites.

"When will we ever use this math stuff?" Answer this question using Math Apprentice. Choose a character and then begin the journey. Walk (or skateboard) to different work sites, buildings, or businesses. Learn how math is used every day in these work places: architecture, bike and toy makers, cafes, and more! Listen to a brief introduction of the concept. Solve problems or free play to identify math concepts in real life. No account or login is required.

tag(s): business (58), careers (139), equations (147), measurement (163), ratios (58), STEM (164)

In the Classroom

This site is a terrific example of STEM integrated learning. This is a great site to share on your interactive whiteboard or projector. Have cooperative learning groups explore different careers or buildings and share how math is used at their locations. Why not have groups create a video using a tool such as Teachers.TV (reviewed here) or a podcast using PodOmatic (reviewed here), to share their mathematical discoveries! At the end of an introduction of a concept, use this site for specific math practice using a real life concept. For example, visit the bike shop to use math to determine pedal gear to wheel gear ratios and resultant bike speeds. Use as an individual activity, a team activity, or with the entire class using an interactive whiteboard. Follow up with a personal problem to solve. In this example, students can measure the two gears on their bikes (or their teachers bike brought into the classroom) to use the information for further understanding.

Pick your subject for Keystage 3, roughly equivalent to grades 6-8 in the U.S. (English, Math, or Science anyone?) Find interactive activities and lessons in a variety of topics in each subject area. At the end of each lesson is a review that recaps the main points. In the English section you will find Reading, Writing, Speaking, Listening, and Shakespeare. The Math section features Numbers (basic arithmetic), Algebra, Handling Data, Measurement, Shapes, and Space. Science includes Organisms, Behavior, Health, Chemical and Material Behavior, Energy, Electricity, Force, The Universe, Environment, and Earth. Within each area there are interactives, tests, and review (referred to as revise at this site, created in the UK). There are also specific activities within each of the categories, educational "games," and message boards. Use of the message boards requires registration but it is not required to use the other materials.

tag(s): data (150), measurement (163), shakespeare (112), space (217), symmetry (54)

In the Classroom

From Life Processes to Solids, Liquids, and Gases in Science, Orders of Operation to Probability in Math, and Writing Structure to Shakespeare in English, find a topic for any material you are covering. Share the interactive (or other sections) on your projector or interactive whiteboard). Provide this link on your class website for students to use to practice both in and out of the classroom. After viewing a topic, brainstorm the main points together as a class and use the information on additional problems or interactives within the classroom.

Interested in learning how to use your interactive Smartboard (or any brand of whiteboard) to support good math instruction? View interactive activities by Kentucky Math standards, grade level, or content. Preview the resource or download (SMART Notebook format only) for use in the classroom. SMARTboard software is required for using downloaded files. Other activities feature activities using content from another site and a description for using the resource. Many of the outside sites are interactive (and fantastic).

The activities are divided up by grade level. There is something here for all grade levels. You can also search activities by name: clock templates, Pythagorean theorem, graphing coordinate pairs, spinners, and many others.

tag(s): charts and graphs (192), counting (111), fractions (225), iwb (32), numbers (195), patterns (85), volume (48)

In the Classroom

Unlock the power of the interactive whiteboard by using these activities to introduce or reinforce concepts in a variety of Math subjects. For example, teach geometry using the "Geometry in Action" activity which uses architecture to teach geometric concepts or use "Cubic Volume" to fill a rectangular prism with cubes to determine the volume. Be sure to check out the external sites also, there are some gems! If you have a different brand of whiteboard, preview the ideas for the downloadable files, then check your company's software for an equivalent activity. Many offer very similar resources.
  This resource requires Adobe Flash and PDF reader software like Adobe Acrobat.
