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): equations (152), integers (40)

#### In the Classroom

Use this site over the interactive whiteboard to work and solve on equations as a class. Have students attempt to solve the problems on a whiteboard before allowing them to use the site to check their work. This will be a more inclusive way to solve problems as a class over the calculator that only one can see. A very useful resource for the advanced math classroom!

This site offers several different resources for math practice. The Investigations portion contains several different activities to practice critical thinking and problem solving skills. Investigations included are number squares, leapfrog, diagonal differences, and more. Games include word search, broken calculator, mathionaire, and others providing practice with basic number operations and problem solving. Test Yourself provides quizzes for functions, number properties, Pythagoras Theorem, and Algebra. The Revise portion of this site provides review and practice for different math skills such as making pie charts, using a protractor, and solving linear equations. Teachers may also want to check out the Resources section for downloadable stationary, puzzles, and worksheets.

#### In the Classroom

Make a shortcut to this site on classroom computers and use it as a center. Have students try out this site on individual computers, or as a learning center. Challenge students to complete the Investigations in the site, then write about their thinking process in Math journals or on the class wiki. Not comfortable with wikis? Check out the TeachersFirst's Wiki Walk-Through.

tag(s): engineering (132), STEM (183)

#### In the Classroom

Use as some great starters to a unit where students can question what needs to be understood to solve the problem. Brainstorm questions, research information, or use these as starters for daily lessons. Provide time for students to view videos and report their understandings via a blog or report. Create student reviews of videos to be placed on a blog and allow for commenting on the videos and the reviews themselves.
