This site offers information about how to organize and assess a math fair, but more importantly, provides puzzles and resources to use. SNAP is an acronym for student-centered, non-competitive, all-inclusive, and problem-based. The purpose of a SNAP math fair is to provide a meaningful, problem-solving experience for all students. Puzzles are offered in 2 levels, plus there are river-crossing, and Sodoku puzzles. Each puzzle is explained and illustrated with the problem. One dilemma for the site creators was in how to provide the solutions as they realize that there are several methods for solving each puzzle. Answers are not provided; however you can email the site creators for answers.

tag(s): critical thinking (108), logic (235), problem solving (272), puzzles (208)

In the Classroom

Use puzzles as a center activity or challenge activity for students. Challenge students to complete the puzzles and explain the problem solving process to their classmates. Have them use use the puzzles and create your own Math fair, Math Fun Day, or Family Math night. Provide a puzzle of the week throughout the year for students to solve. Be sure to allow students time to solve puzzles on their own without any hints or tips!

This excellent site consists of ideas for projects to use in Math fairs; however, there are many other uses for the ideas presented on this site. Titles and subjects such as Juice Box Geometry, Play-Doh Math, and more, are intriguing and sure to capture students' interest. Topics include geometry, estimation, measurement, and probability. Each project contains detailed directions including background knowledge required, materials, and variations to try. General grade level suggestions are also provided (for grades 1-10.) One activity includes a video to help understand the directions. Perhaps most interesting is the section at the end of each project that is composed of links to careers in mathematics that tie-in to the activities.

tag(s): estimation (46), experiments (71), probability (130)

In the Classroom

Choose a project to use as a center activity to complement current units being taught. Assign gifted students a project and then challenge them to share their findings with other classmates. Assign a project as homework or for extra credit. Allow students to videotape and present their project to the class then share on your website or class blog (with parental permission of course). Use a tool such as SchoolTube reviewed here or Prezi reviewed herefor students to present their findings to the classs.

This is a simple, but highly engaging math trick that would be great for a problem-solving activity or class starter. To play, choose a 2-digit number, then subtract each of the digits from the original number (25 - 2- 5 = 18). Once that is done, go to next, find your original number and identify the gift associated with the number, at the next screen Robin will be able to tell you what the gift is. Students will enjoy experimenting with different numbers and solving for why this will work. The key is that all answers will be multiples of 9 and all of those multiples contain the same gift item!

tag(s): critical thinking (108), multiples (35), problem solving (272), puzzles (208)

In the Classroom

Display on your interactive whiteboard or projector and allow students to experiment with different 2-digit choices. Ask students to explore different options on how this works, then journal their solutions.

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 (22), mass (23), measurement (159)

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.

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.

tag(s): charts and graphs (195), coordinates (32), decimals (133), estimation (46), fractions (239), measurement (159), money (193), number sense (97), operations (126), rounding (22), time (144)

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.

In this activity, you take turns removing fruit from the table, in accordance with the rules. Whoever takes the last fruit from the table is the winner. This is a one player game - you versus the computer. Although it is deceptively easy, it is enjoyable to plan a winning strategy based on the different amount of fruit presented for each game. Rules are included as an overview before playing.

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.
