Discover a huge collection of interactive illustrations to help explain complex concepts in science, technology, art, math, and a range of other topics. The activities also give you the power to create interactive visualizations. There are thousands of Mathematica Demonstrations. A demonstration is a Mathematica notebook that takes advantage of Mathematica's manipulate command. Use the manipulate command to create sliders or buttons or check boxes to change the values of parameters in the displays in the demonstration. The result is you control the animation. View demonstrations on topics ranging from odd and even numbers to odd and even functions, fractions to fractals, and from linear functions to linear algebra and linear programming. In addition to mathematical topics, there are demonstrations illustrating the time in different cities around the world, global demographic information, the solar system, and art and music concepts. You need to download the Wolfram CDF player to use and interact with the demonstrations.

tag(s): addition (227), animals (322), architecture (85), computers (102), division (161), fractions (228), geometric shapes (173), gravity (46), logic (248), maps (298), money (185), multiples (32), multiplication (211), plants (174), psychology (66), statistics (127), subtraction (187), weather (201)

#### In the Classroom

Explain how to use the Demonstrations on your interactive whiteboard (or projector). Allow students to explore on their own classroom computers. (Remember to download the CDF player onto each computer or request it in advance from your tech department.) Challenge students to create a talking avatar using a photo or other image (legally permitted for reproduction). Use avatars to explain activities performed using a Demonstration. Use a site such as Blabberize (reviewed here). The beauty of the demonstrations is that it allows students to manipulate and "play" to view the impact of changes made, allowing many opportunities for classroom discussion. Ask students to predict the impact of changes using the manipulate command; then discuss the actual impact as it occurs.

tag(s): book reports (36), creative writing (164), social networking (112)

#### In the Classroom

Engage and create interest in classroom learning with Fakebook. This site is wonderful for creating interest in many subjects. In social studies, instead of a typical biographical report have students create a Fakebook page about their famous person. Write about presidents, founding fathers, famous scientists or artist, a civil war soldier, and much more. Have students create a timeline of any historical event (the page should be named for the event). Use Fakebook to outline the plot of a book, play, or film, then share with students while studying the material. To use Fakebook to study literature, create a page for the central character, book's author, or the setting of the book or play. For a unique twist is science class, create a Fakebook page for a periodic element or another science topic. Use the page to describe "the life" of that atom or element. In world language classes, have students do this activity (about themselves) in the second language they are learning. Create a Fakebook page for the first day of school to introduce yourself to students or at Open House for parents. Challenge students to create and share a page about themselves during the first week of school. Share a Fakebook page with students to demonstrate proper netiquette and social sharing. Be sure to share a rubric with students for all expectations of what should be included on their page. Make Fakebook one of the options for your gifted students doing projects beyond the regular curriculum. With no membership required, this tool is simple enough for younger gifted students who have parent permission to post work to the web. We could pretend that they do not know what Facebook looks like, but we would be deluding ourselves!

tag(s): qr codes (22)

#### In the Classroom

All it takes to use a QR code is a device such as an iTouch or phone to aim at the code. Even very young students can aim at a code to open a web page or game. Make objects in your classroom play a song (on a web page) or teach. Choose one of the ideas suggested in the slideshow as a starting point for using QR codes in your classroom. Try additional ideas a little at a time. Share the slideshow with other teachers and split up the ideas for each to become an "expert" in one of the strategies. Share your experiences as you learn together. Form a classroom "tech team" of interested students to try out an idea before launching it with the full class. Let them become experts along with you. Meet together over lunch or before/after school to become QR masters.

tag(s): creative writing (164), descriptive writing (41), expository writing (43), paragraph writing (17), persuasive writing (57), process writing (48), writing (365)

#### In the Classroom

Create books on any subject for your students to review or learn. Set up a whole class account or use individual accounts with those 13 and older if school policy allows it. Challenge students to create a book as a multi-media presentation instead of a typical book report. This would be great to use for a student/star of the week presentation. Each week add a student's information. Do this together as a class on your interactive whiteboard or projector. Create a link (and log in) on classroom computers for students to view the book when they wish. Use this tool for groups to collaborate on science concept tales, poetry books, general writing, math problem solve-its, and more. ANY grade can use this tool with a whole class account, depending on the amount of direction by the teacher. Have students create a book as an end of the year culminatng/review project.

This is the go-to site for Promethean flipchart downloads. Most files were created by teachers. The only downside is that the files are hit-or-miss. There are many gems, but you might have to browse some not-so-great files to find them. Tim, , Grades: 0 - 6

Create online image phrases with this clever tool. Type any phrase into Phrasr's search box to find images to "match" the words. Narrow down your image choices for each word by choosing from many offerings. When complete, provide a title and name to publish your image phrase. The one misnomer here is that you can actually use a sentence, not just a phrase. Published phrases show the words in a slow left to right scroll easily read by anyone, with your selected images above each word. Make rebus-style messages by simply keeping the word with the "no image" option in some spots. View archives to find image phrases created by others (viewer discretion advised). Send phrases via email or other social tools when complete. You can also click to see your just-published phrase in the "archive" to copy the url directly. See a sample here. Our editors found that the image selections are rather unusual, unlike typical "clip art" collections.

tag(s): figurative language (16), images (277), phrases (6), poetry (219)

#### In the Classroom

Use this site to make lessons grab your students' attention (which isn't always easy). Create images for content-related phrases and display on your interactive whiteboard for students to guess the phrase. "What goes up must come down" could introduce a lesson on Newton's laws! Use as a unit starter to provide image phrases related to upcoming lessons. Have students create their own phrases with images for classmates to guess the phrase (cover the sentence with a notebook tool or similar). Use pictures to display your morning message. Use this site during a poetry unit to talk about the many visual images used in poetry and for students to compose figurative language phrases that they can test in Phrasr. In art class, use Phrasr to discuss the way we relate images to meaning.

Create artwork and posters about the ocean creatures using a tool such as Web Poster Wizard (reviewed here). Have students move as the creature would move, and have ocean inspired snacks and lunches. For extra counting or color practice, have students place a certain number or color of creatures at an interactive whiteboard "center."

Use curriculum connections included with every article for an instant lesson plan or discussion starter. View by choosing category selections such as news, entertainment, science, politics, and more. One interesting and helpful feature is the use of tags with each article. Choose from clearly labeled tags to find other articles with similar topics. Included on the right side of the site are tags used most often on the entire site. Larger and bolder text indicates most widely used tags. Share articles easily using social media links included to most common sites such as Facebook and Twitter.
