What it says is what you get, but there are lots of calculus-related activities and resources at this site created by a math teacher. The site offers a problem of the week - with the solution the following week(!) as well as "fun stuff" involving calculus. This could be a useful site for students whose motivations range from mere survival to extended study.

This site from the University of Tennessee offers much more than calculus. There are explanations, Shockwave-enhanced tutorials, and downloadable resources for TI graphing calculators for topics ranging from introductory functions on through advanced calculus. Based on a university professor's teaching notes, the result is a very student-friendly study resource.

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.

This site allows students to type in their own integral, or view a random sample generated by the computer. The answer is then displayed. Select "History of Integration" for a timeline of math events.

tag(s): equations (155), integers (41)

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.

tag(s): gifted (96), logic (235)

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.

Have fun exploring Pi with this math site! Play Pi Trivia to test your knowledge of Pi, use the Pi Trainer to test your memory, or discover poems, photos and more all representing Pi. The site is divided into three sections - fun activities, aesthetics, and nerd stuff- making it easy to explore.

tag(s): pi (22)

In the Classroom

Introduce this site on your interactive whiteboard or projector, then allow students to explore on their own. Use the poems, photos, and other aesthetics as examples, then have students create their own Pi aesthetics to share on your classroom website or blog. Have a class competition to see who can memorize the most digits in Pi after training with the Pi memory trainer.

Find online video lessons and free resources on this MIT site. BLOSSOMS features great STEM videos as well as links to other STEM resources on the site. Find great resources that focus on the use of science and math knowledge to bring these topics to life. View a variety of topics such as Using Geometry to Design Simple Machines, Galaxies and Dark Matter, and Classifying Animals by Appearance Versus DNA Sequence. On each video page, click the link to view the video, read a summary of the information, and even download the transcript, teachers guide, and images that are used for the video. Downloads are available in Word or Adobe Reader format. Interested in the topic? Use the links at the bottom to view other sites and resources.

tag(s): engineering (125), STEM (134)

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.
 This resource requires PDF reader software like Adobe Acrobat.
