This interactive and entertaining site offers many opportunities for students to learn and discover a variety of math concepts including higher- level thinking skills. The visuals aide in teaching skills in a real-life way. Topics include equalities and inequalities, patterns relationships and functions, tessellation, Venn diagram, fractal tool, basic addition, estimation, transformations, and several others. Even the youngest of students will be able to do Algebra, follow multi-step directions and more. Instructions for each game are clearly given and students can progress in levels as they complete different stages. All games are research-based and are developed to teach math in fun and engaging ways. Most games also include learning objectives as the game is loading.

tag(s): angles (88), counting (111), critical thinking (119), problem solving (286)

In the Classroom

When introducing the concepts of Algebra, display the "Pan Game" on your interactive whiteboard or projector. Challenge students to see if they can solve the problems. After students become comfortable with balancing the pan, introduce the term variables and apply this to what has already been learned through the activity. Reinforce math vocabulary through the use of the activities. After introducing the term "multiple" allow students to try "Sleeboz" to help develop speed with recognition of multiples and to reinforce the definition of multiple. Save this site in your favorites. You may also want to provide this link on your class website for students to use at home.

Math Open Reference is designed to teach High School geometry and functions. The site is organized into modules by geometric topic with specific lessons for each concept. The main topics include Plane Geometry, Coordinate Geometry, Solid Geometry, and Tools (Math/Scientific Calculator, General Function Explorer, Graphical Linear Function Explorer, Graphical Quadratic Function Explorer, and Graphical Cubic Function Explorer). Each module includes interactive elements that allow you to experiment with the topic concept. The interactive activities make abstract concepts more concrete.

In the Classroom

Math Open Reference modules are effective in a lab setting or using an interactive whiteboard or projector with the entire class. Although the lessons are designed for High School students, some of the activities are appropriate for Middle School students. The ability to make and print custom graph paper is a very useful feature. Have student groups explain a geometric concept on the interactive whiteboard, putting the explanations in their own words. For example, have them use the congruence tools on this site, then draw examples using the whiteboard tools, challenging their classmates to identify congruent examples.

Find great websites and activities for use with an interactive whiteboard, projector, or on individual computers at this well organized site. Find great resources for Length, Time, Money, Perimeter/Area, Temperature, Weight, Volume/Surface Area, or Angles. Although TeachersFirst does not usually review "hotlists" of links, this one is extremely useful to share as is. This collection of resources pulls from across the web to organize interactive math skills practice into topics the way teachers and curriculum specialists "see" them, saving you load of time in finding just the right math practice activities.

tag(s): angles (88), area (72), measurement (164), money (182), perimeter (32), temperature (31), time (139), volume (48)

In the Classroom

Use any of the great resources interactively in the classroom. For example, click on "Weight" and then "Reading Scales" to access a great site. Choose a different scale to use on the interactive whiteboard (or students can use on a single computer.) Choose the measurement, and then "Generate." Practice reading the scale using the whiteboard as a class or in groups. Require students working individually to use a screen capture (print screen in PC or Apple-shift-4 in Mac) to capture an image of the screen. Use Paint or another lettering program to write their scale readings on their picture. Print or present to the class. Take a few minutes to check out this site and find some great resources for units and lessons in your classroom. Share this link on your class website.

This math site is a MUST SEE for teachers of all grade levels. Much of this site is designed for K-8 teachers, but there are a few activities for the high school grades. Although the site is mainly a drill and practice, it offers such an array of topics and levels that there is something for everyone here (and it is terrific for differentiating lessons in the classroom). Sample topics include roman numerals, Algebra II, pre-algebra, measurement, absolute value, early childhood math, telling time, money, place value, fractions, decimals, mixed operations, and more! And did we mention, each topic include rich, colorful interactives for students to practice skills! Most topics also include options to specify content (for example, choosing to practice addition, subtraction, multiplication, or division).

tag(s): decimals (125), fractions (228), money (182), place value (52), preK (292), roman numerals (9), time (139)

In the Classroom

Introduce this site on your interactive whiteboard, then allow students to explore on their own. This is a great site to use as a learning station or center. Be sure to list this link on your class website for extra practice or advanced materials for gifted students. Save this site in your favorites, since there are so many topics you are sure to find materials throughout the entire school year.

This creative website allows you to create a personalized snowflake (perfect for winter). It is the virtual version of construction paper and safety scissors snowflakes minus all the mess. Some visual and mechanical dexterity is still necessary, but not nearly as much as complex paper snowflakes require.

tag(s): snow (22), symmetry (54)

In the Classroom

This site would work well in an elementary art class as a winter project or when teaching about the seasons in primary grades. All of the saved snowflakes are assigned an ID number. The flakes can be downloaded as jpeg files, EPS files (to be manipulated in your own graphics programs), or emailed to you. Use downloaded images to create a winter "big book" along with winter poems by your young students. Use this site in upper grades in both graphic design classes as part of a winter webpage project or in a geometry lesson on angles or reflections. The website could be previewed on the interactive whiteboard or projector. Then students can create their own on laptops or in the computer lab. What an entertaining way to teach symmetry to younger students!

Challenge basic counting skills and problem solving using classic sliding puzzles. Not only will you find numerical sliding puzzles, but also colorful shape puzzles. Java applets make an interactive version of each puzzle appear below the "goal" you are trying to reach. There is also a targeted number of moves to reach the goal. There are many different types of puzzles, some more familiar than others. Be sure to be patient as puzzles load. Sometimes the interactive (drag to slide) portion does not appear right away.

tag(s): logic (236), puzzles (203)

In the Classroom

Share these puzzles on your interactive whiteboard (or projector) as a mind-bending challenge. Help students develop problem-solving skills such as thinking several steps ahead by offering the link on your class web page. Higher level and gifted math students can try to determine a formula for calculating the number of moves it may take to solve a puzzle. Give awards to students who accomplish the "goal" in the stated number of moves, then ask them to explain their strategy or think aloud as they repeat it on an interactive whiteboard. Offer a puzzle club for your mathematical/logical thinkers or simply develop visual thinking skills by sharing these challenges.

This site offers a ton of links to math videos with supplementary support problems. There are many topics, and most include subtopics: everything from rounding to exponents to decimals to pre-algebra! It is a very cool place to find homework help or an alternative teaching approach for various math concepts from things as simple as adding whole numbers to more advanced topics such as geometry. The site is divided by click-able math topics. The site does have some advertisements, but they are fairly easy to overlook. If your district blocks YouTube, the videos may not be viewable. You could always view them at home and bring them to class "on a stick" to share. Use a tool such as Freemake Video Converter, reviewed here, to download the videos from YouTube.

tag(s): decimals (125), estimation (47), homework (43), money (182), ratios (58), statistics (126)

In the Classroom

Teachers could add this site to their class web pages to provide extra support. Specific videos can be shown on the interactive white board as part of learning centers to allow the math classroom to become more like a math laboratory. If you can't find the specific topic you are looking for here, why not challenge cooperative learning groups to create a simple video teaching the new concept(s). Use a site such as TeacherTube reviewed here, to share the videos.

"When will we ever use this math stuff?" Answer this question using Math Apprentice. Choose a character and then begin the journey. Walk (or skateboard) to different work sites, buildings, or businesses. Learn how math is used every day in these work places: architecture, bike and toy makers, cafes, and more! Listen to a brief introduction of the concept. Solve problems or free play to identify math concepts in real life. No account or login is required.

tag(s): business (58), careers (140), equations (149), measurement (164), ratios (58), STEM (164)

In the Classroom

This site is a terrific example of STEM integrated learning. This is a great site to share on your interactive whiteboard or projector. Have cooperative learning groups explore different careers or buildings and share how math is used at their locations. Why not have groups create a video using a tool such as Teachers.TV (reviewed here) or a podcast using PodOmatic (reviewed here), to share their mathematical discoveries! At the end of an introduction of a concept, use this site for specific math practice using a real life concept. For example, visit the bike shop to use math to determine pedal gear to wheel gear ratios and resultant bike speeds. Use as an individual activity, a team activity, or with the entire class using an interactive whiteboard. Follow up with a personal problem to solve. In this example, students can measure the two gears on their bikes (or their teachers bike brought into the classroom) to use the information for further understanding.

This math website is a resource for basic information on math concepts. Although it is rather "plain vanilla" in design, it provides some valuable information. Concepts include: Basic Math Skills, Pre-calculus, Calculus, Beyond Calculus, and Other Stuff. Dan also provides links to neat math extras like paradoxes and riddles.

tag(s): decimals (125), exponents (43), fractions (228), numbers (195), operations (123), order of operations (39), percent (80), prime numbers (33), square roots (23)

In the Classroom

The basic information on the concepts of math could easily be used in online teaching as an option to a formal textbook. The reading is easy to understand, and to-the-point. The problem of the week section of the site could be used as a challenge activity for students once a week in different math classes. Provide this link on your class website for help to struggling students or for your math lovers to explore on their own.

Pick your subject for Keystage 3, roughly equivalent to grades 6-8 in the U.S. (English, Math, or Science anyone?) Find interactive activities and lessons in a variety of topics in each subject area. At the end of each lesson is a review that recaps the main points. In the English section you will find Reading, Writing, Speaking, Listening, and Shakespeare. The Math section features Numbers (basic arithmetic), Algebra, Handling Data, Measurement, Shapes, and Space. Science includes Organisms, Behavior, Health, Chemical and Material Behavior, Energy, Electricity, Force, The Universe, Environment, and Earth. Within each area there are interactives, tests, and review (referred to as revise at this site, created in the UK). There are also specific activities within each of the categories, educational "games," and message boards. Use of the message boards requires registration but it is not required to use the other materials.

tag(s): data (150), measurement (164), shakespeare (112), space (217), symmetry (54)

In the Classroom

From Life Processes to Solids, Liquids, and Gases in Science, Orders of Operation to Probability in Math, and Writing Structure to Shakespeare in English, find a topic for any material you are covering. Share the interactive (or other sections) on your projector or interactive whiteboard). Provide this link on your class website for students to use to practice both in and out of the classroom. After viewing a topic, brainstorm the main points together as a class and use the information on additional problems or interactives within the classroom.

Find free interactives in Math, Logic, and Language Arts using this colorful site. Choose your grade level (K-6) and then your specific topic. Some examples of topics include: Time and Money, Problem Solving, Reading and Comprehension, Range, Mean, Median, and Mode, Grammar, Literature, and countless others. Find help in the homework help section along the right side of the site. You may also do a more generalized search by using the links for "Popular," "Math," or "Language Arts." Many of the activities have been created by other sites or educators (you may even notice some familiar characters, such as Big Bird). Some activities may have ads appearing beside them. Students should be advised to ignore these ads.

tag(s): equations (149), fractions (228), homework (43), keyboarding (38), measurement (164), poetry (222), probability (131), statistics (126)

In the Classroom

Share this site on your interactive whiteboard or projector. Make it a kinesthetic "center" for students to explore using your interactive whiteboard. Use these activities to strengthen skills, provide practice, and identify weaknesses. For example, use math games that teach graphing, analyzing, and counting. There is a wide variety of topics here, so be sure to peruse this site before your new unit or lesson! Using examples on this site, students can create their own homework help using a wiki, blog, or other site to help others. Allow students to "rate" the games using stars or smiley faces and comment on how the game helps them learn. Play a variety of word and other language arts games. Be sure to list this link on your class website or wiki for students to access both in and out of the classroom.
