This site provides a resource for teachers who use, or are only beginning to use, a problem-centered approach. Varying in difficulty and approaches, these problems are useful for teachers, students, parents, math clubs, and home-schoolers. Problems are classified by topic, time required, suggested technology, required mathematical background, and habits of mind that students develop or use as they work. Synopses of the problems are keyword searchable. Answers and solutions are provided, and many problems include hints. Problems are available as html and as pdf documents. Each problem also has a link to view/add reader comments - this section may be useful for finding problem extensions or difficulties found when using problems. To become familiar with the site, there is a guided tour of the site, links to readers' favorite problems, and technical requirements. There is an extensive selection of teachers resources with answers to problems, goals and objectives, and preparations for class use.

tag(s): charts and graphs (195), logic (235), modeling (9), problem solving (272)

In the Classroom

Use this site as a resource for locating problems to use with your existing math program. Assign problems to students based on individual skills and needs or as enrichment for gifted students.

This site offers dramatic, visual views of changes when zooming in or out by powers of ten. Simply click on the start page to begin the journey by looking at roses as we normally see them. By clicking on each of the numbers on the ruler below, you can see what happens at +10 squared and beyond up to 10 to the 26th value (the largest scale picture ever taken). You can also go to negative powers of 10 up to -15, the study of quarks. According to TeachersFirst user C.G., this site is based on a video. Watch the video here. Consider offering this site as a starter and the YouTube video (if accessible at school) for students who wish to know more. If your district blocks YouTube, then this may not be viewable. You could always view that at home and bring it to class "on a stick" to share. Use a tool such as KeepVid reviewed here to download the videos from YouTube.

tag(s): exponents (42), negative numbers (22), place value (56), square roots (24)

In the Classroom

Share this site on your interactive whiteboard or projector to help students visualize the dramatic changes between powers of ten. Allow students to experiment with the site on classroom computers. Provide a link on your class website to this interesting activity. Make ten even more "powerful" by having students write abstract poems about what they might see at different "powers."

Comments

Show your students video "The Powers of Ten" which is what the site was based on. It's fascinating. I don't know who was more amazed - my 5th graders or me. [Ed note: thanks for the video link. We have added it to the review!] Cindy, TX, Grades: 5 - 6

This site allows you to input calculus problems and receive the solution. Also included are many sample problems. Choose sample problems on the right of the screen from different categories such as functions and graphs, integrals, techniques of integration, and much more. After creating a problem, select solve to find an answer. One major downfall of the site is that upon giving the answer, you must PAY to see the steps to finding that answer. However, the site is still worthwhile for students to check problems and self-test.
This site includes advertising.

tag(s): charts and graphs (195), differentiation (47), exponents (42), functions (70), sequences (16)

In the Classroom

Share the site with students as a resource for checking homework. At the beginning of a unit, display the site on your interactive whiteboard or projector showing the solution to a new problem, and then allow students to investigate and discover how to find the answer. This would also be a very effective way to illustrate why you continually ask students to "show your work"! after they experience the frustration of not knowing HOW the answer can be correct.

This site is a compilation of many math and science resources along with a social networking component. Currently there are almost 2000 activities, lessons, and videos and the site is constantly growing. There are several ways to use the site both as a registered user or without registration. Without registering for the site you can search and access lessons and information through the different search methods such as keywords, subjects, source institution, and more. Free registration allows the site to become much more personalized. After registering, you can make lists of resources for any different topic, share lists or searches with others, add comments, or add your own resources. Most activities on the site are free; however, there are some searches that deliver lessons that are paid - these are clearly indicated and not frequent enough to discourage use of this site. Searches can also filter out any paid activities and return only free items. Teachers may also want to subscribe to the site's blog and newsletter to receive updated information as it is added to the site.

In case you are wondering about the title, SMILE is the Science and Math Informal Learning Educators pathway of the National Science Digital Library (NSDL).

This site provides many handy resources and tidbits to help with Calculus 1. Although the site is deceptively simplistic in its look, there is a great deal of information hidden within the links. Advice includes reminders for taking the AP Calculus exam such as 10 Reminders About the Calculator and Top 10 Student Errors. Other interesting downloads are the Word Documents with Calculus Songs. These documents have the words to 33 songs related to Calculus, such as Separation of Variables to the tune of Itsy, Bitsy, Spider. There is even a calculus video! Other links are to Stuff You Must Know Cold (including quizzes), PowerPoints for Calculus Review, and Smart Notebook Files (including a link to the viewer).

In the Classroom

Use the Calculus Songs as warm-ups for class time and have students create their own songs. Share the video on your interactive whiteboard or projector. Challenge students to create their own top 10 lists to share with the class. Use the AP review quizzes to help students study for the exam. Print the Calculus study cards for students to use for review. Challenge students to create calculus flashcards using a tool such as Brainflips (reviewed here). Teachers looking for new ideas to spice up their calc class will find terrific possibilities on this teacher-created site.
