This site offers practice with length, mass, and capacity using metric units. Objectives are included for each topic and can easily be printed from the site. After choosing one of the 3 topics, there are several pages of resources labeled by the name of the activity. Some resources are for interactive whiteboards and others are printable worksheets to accompany whiteboard activities. The site was created in the UK, so some of the pronunciations and spellings may differ from those in American English; however, it shouldn't create any problems for students to understand. The background of each of the interactive whiteboard resources AND printable pages has a watermark stamp of "For Evaluation Only" which may be distracting to students; however, the activities and worksheets make it worth ignoring.

tag(s): conversions (23), mass (23), measurement (157)

In the Classroom

This site is ideal for an interactive whiteboard or projector. Have the students open the site and use the whiteboard tools to complete the activities. If the watermark is distracting, you can recreate the activities on your own to use in the classroom. Follow-up a class lesson using the whiteboard resources with one of the printable worksheets included on the site. Be sure to post this link on your class website during a unit on measurement.

If you are looking for many different variations of math puzzles, look here. This site contains many puzzles of all kinds, together with links to other puzzles and mathematical recreation pages. The puzzles are marvelous, though many are a bit hard to understand -- often the author starts talking about a group of puzzles without explaining what the puzzle is. You may also have to work your way through some other random thoughts by the author; however, the puzzles on the page are worth sifting through the page to find them. Puzzles are listed in order of being added to the site, it may be easier to find items by looking on the right-hand side of the page and following the links listed under "Math Games". Activities are listed here by title without any explanation or picture, it would have been easier if they were in alphabetical order; however, this is still easier to find than scrolling through the long page of activities.

tag(s): logic (237), problem solving (273), puzzles (209), trivia (18)

In the Classroom

Introduce the site on your interactive whiteboard or projector then challenge students to choose a puzzle to solve. Have students explain the solution to the class. Use puzzles as a Problem of the Week for homework or extra credit by posting on your classroom website or blog.

"Aesthetic computing" is an approach to algebra that focuses on students representing algebraic equations as pictures and stories to increase student involvement and understanding. The goal is to engage students who would benefit through hands-on and visual approaches to learning. The site includes a 5 minute video describing the approach, an introduction to the theory including lesson plans and handouts, and learning outcomes. Lesson plans are divided into Middle School and High School categories. One interesting inclusion to the site is the online chat and group for teachers interested in trying the approach. The group is very small but might be worthwhile to use for networking with others using this approach.

tag(s): operations (125), problem solving (273), visualizations (13)

In the Classroom

Share this site with Special Education and Gifted teachers as the hands-on approach will appeal to both types of learners. Display and share students' pictures and stories in your classroom or on your classroom website. Challenge students to find the equation within the pictures and stories.

MrNussbaum.com was developed with the idea that crucial concepts, themes, ideas, and fact sets taught in the classroom can be enhanced over the internet through interactivity. Furthermore, for teachers to have a reliable k -8 internet site to use in the computer lab or in the classroom, that likely covers one or many themes currently being taught. The Math portion of the site contains dozens of interactives labeled by grade level and topic. Directly below the links to all different topics offered on the site there is a color coded display to help correctly identify grade-level suggestions for activities. For example, red for 1st Grade, orange for 2nd, and so on. Many different topics are offered including fact practice, estimation, rounding, fractions, decimals, money, time, coordinate grids, metric and standard units, and more. Many of the games offer an introductory video explaining how to play. 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 KeepVid, reviewed here, to download the videos from YouTube. Some activities require a name, Mr. Nussbaum recommends that students never use their actual name but make up something. Names are not stored and login isn't required to play.
This site includes advertising.

tag(s): charts and graphs (195), coordinates (32), decimals (133), estimation (46), fractions (239), measurement (157), money (192), number sense (96), operations (125), rounding (22), time (144)

In the Classroom

Make a shortcut to this site on classroom computers and use it as a center. This site offers multiple levels, so it is easy to differentiate for ability levels within your class. Share this link on your class web page and/or in a parent newsletter for practice at home.

This site is a tutorial that models fractions with number lines or circles through several different options. Applets are divided into categories such as identify fractions, rename fractions, compare fractions, investigate fractions, and much more. Each category contains different options for exploration with flash applets to practice that skill. The "investigate" option offers step-by-step explanations of the different categories and would be very useful to offer students when reviewing skills such as comparing fractions and using order of operations. Some of the slide shows are also available in PDF form along with practice worksheets. Another component of the site allows you to input your own fractions to practice your own examples.

tag(s): decimals (133), fractions (239), percent (82), test prep (95)

In the Classroom

Introduce this site on your interactive whiteboard or projector. Have the students open the site and use the whiteboard tools to explore and practice different aspects of fractions. Then have students explore this site independently or in small groups. Use this site on a projector or interactive whiteboard to discuss and informally assess prior knowledge as you start your study of fractions. Create a link to this site on classroom computers, and your classroom website or blog for students to explore.

This site offers many opportunities for math exploration for both teachers and students. Although they have a store and ads on the site, much of the site is free and worth a visit. One especially helpful portion of the site is the link to different types of calculators from basic to graphing to mortgage and loan calculators. Students and parents will find the homework section of the site helpful as it is categorized by different topics, then each topic is further divided into sections. For example, under fractions you will find definitions, reducing, adding and subtracting, multiplying and dividing. In each of those portions there is a section with a first glance (overview), in-depth, examples, and workout. There is also a unit quiz for each section. Another helpful area of the site is the practice section which offers practice in many different math skills such as square root, percent, and integers. The games section offers practice with critical thinking skills through logic puzzles and games such as chess.

Harcourt School's website offers many different activities for practicing Math skills taught in their 4th grade program; however, the activities are free and available to everyone. Activities are divided by math strands - number sense, algebra and functions, measurement and geometry, and statistics, data analysis, and probability. Most activities have a printable recording sheet that can be used. You can also input your own figures which makes the activities less repetitive and more interesting.
