This site offers a growing bank of resources for elementary teachers to use with interactive whiteboards or projectors. If you don't have a whiteboard, files can be opened on computers for individual use. Files include Excel, Flash, PowerPoint, Word and other formats to download. Use the links at the top of the page to find the appropriate grade range beginning with preschool (foundation) through KS3 (roughly equivalent to middle school). Within each grade level are resources divided by topic such as mathematics, literacy or science. Be sure to check out the "Amusements" section as it isn't just for fun; this category includes activities such as jumbled words and memory games. Sign up for the free mailing list to be notified when new activities are added. You can also add your own resources to the site for others to use. While testing this site, the editor noticed a few of the links either take extremely long to open or don't work at all. However, we still felt this was a great find, since nearly everything else worked perfectly.

tag(s): fluency (23), iwb (31), literacy (103), number sense (97), numbers (204)

In the Classroom

Introduce activities to your classroom then use this site as a learning center (use on computer if you don't have an interactive whiteboard.) These activities are perfect for at-home practice so share the site with parents through your classroom newsletter or blog and include practice for homework.

The primary purpose of this site is to offer information and techniques for quilters; however, they also offer 3 lesson plans that can be used in elementary, middle, or high school classrooms. The elementary lesson focuses on learning fractions through dividing up quilt squares including basic and advanced activities. The middle school lesson focuses on proportions. The high school activity is based upon polynomials. These would be fun activities for students to apply these math concepts through hands-on activities.

tag(s): angles (88), fractions (239), polynomials (32), symmetry (55)

In the Classroom

During Black History month or when learning about western expansion or colonial days, students may enjoy making quilts from fabric or paper and learning about the different patterns used in quilt making. Introduce this activity and have students label the different fractional amounts in the quilt squares. Practice adding fractions by writing the equations generated by making different quilt squares. Hang completed quilts in the classroom or hallway for an interesting display of work with fractions and proportion.

Find exceptional activities, interactives, and lesson plans at this free site that focuses on real life math to raise the achievement of middle school students. Read about the "Project Descriptions" with great summaries and other information about the resources, view the "Standards and Concepts," and find other "Additional Resources." At the time of this review a few examples of the activities included "Scale City," "Math By Design," "Rock-n-Roll Road Trip World Tour," and "Proportionland." Click on the links to go to the appropriate resource. Be sure to test out the resources using a student computer prior to using in class.

tag(s): architecture (83), counting (120), measurement (159), ratios (53)

In the Classroom

Use any of these great resources to show how math concepts are used in everyday life. For example, use "Math by Design" as a scenario of how math and architecture are connected. Use the resource to design a nature center or park. Allow students to work in collaborative groups to make decisions and identify the math used to solve the problem. Demonstrate their understanding with a presentation that justifies their choices and how they arrived at their final project choice. Use conventional or multimedia resources to showcase the results and find a public audience. Consider using a wiki or Google Docs for collaboration and presentation. Use a variety of mind mapping applications such as Diagrammr to collaborate and create a flowchart. Take these projects one step further by proposing nature areas in your school campus. Students can take their ideas and resulting understanding of math to justify their design and propose it to the local school board or town council. Use many of these ideas to create your own real world math projects and activities.
