This ativity provides positive reinforcement of correct math answers with a basketball player taking a shot at the basket. Click Start or any of the questions in the Table of Contents left of your window to see a mathematics question and animation. If you answer the question correctly, the result will be a basketball shot animation; incorrect responses yield the correct answer. Questions include various strands and levels of mathematics such as rounding numbers, perimeter, word problems, common factors, and much more. At the completion of each round, the score appears with the number of correct responses and percentage correct. You must either click the back button (if you want to remain within the same topic) or click on a new topic to move on to the next question. The game is available in Spanish.

tag(s): charts and graphs (198), decimals (125), exponents (43), factors (39), fluency (24), map skills (84), number sense (96), operations (123), perimeter (31), problem solving (294), rounding (19)

This site offers a vast amount of resources for elementary math teachers. Activities are described within the site and also available for PDF download. The site was originally intended as a digital storage place for the creator's resources used in consulting work and evolved into a place to share math resources with other teachers. Included topics are numbers, geometry, and measurement/data. After choosing a topic, activities are divided by grade level. Be sure to look at other grade levels for activities that can be modified for your teaching situation. Also available on the site is extensive information about Math Journals (warning - their math journals are for sale on the site; however, information to make and use your own is free). Other topics include math games, centers, projects, mental math, and resources - including some for interactive whiteboards.

tag(s): data (161), geometric shapes (173), journals (20), measurement (175), mental math (30), rhymes (30)

#### In the Classroom

Use this site as a resource to supplement current classroom activities. If you are just implementing math journals, this site is a wonderful resource for ideas and implementation. Print out game directions for use at centers or in folders. Share this site on your class webpage for students to access both in and out of the class for extra practice and/or enrichment.

This site has proved an invaluable resource for teachers at my school. Lots of great resources for Math Centers/small group work and the journal tasks for K-5 are all really good! Highly recommend it to any teachers and/or math coaches trying to get their head around the Common Core Standards. Jane, , Grades: 0 - 5

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 (87), fractions (228), polynomials (28), symmetry (51)

#### 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.
