Homestyler is a free online interior design planner. Users choose a layout plan, add details such as doors, windows, and furnishings, and then decide on color schemes for interior decorating. Designs are viewable in both a 2D and 3D format. This is a free online program that requires no downloading. Registration does require an email address. This site may or may not be fully accessible inside your school filtering. Check to make sure all portions of this site are available when using your school's network. Homestyler does have a retail component that suggests certain name brands for appliances, and building supplies but the 3D designing capability outshines this form of advertising.

tag(s): architecture (84), area (71), design (89), volume (53)

#### In the Classroom

Users click and drag design components onto the main layout page. The free draw tool is a bit trickier to control but is similar to drawing tools in other programs. The perimeter measurement scrolls alongside the line you are drawing. The interface for such a complicated concept is intuitive. Students will need explicit instructions on how to operate this program.

Use an interactive whiteboard or projector to share the tutorial presentation and demonstrate how to use the design tools. Divide students into cooperative learning groups to explore the site. Consider this resource to help math students visualize how to compute the surface area of three-dimensional shapes and understand how area and volume change with scale. Social Studies and History teachers can ask students to re-create the interior of an early American home, Greek Temple or even their own classroom. With guidance, this could be a wonderful tool to help younger students understand interior mapping skills. Classrooms focusing on "real-world learning" may find this a valuable resource tool to help students create design plans for an alternative environment.

Put On Your Thinking Cap as you enter Flossville Town Park and Windjammer Environmental Center! Students are encouraged to think critically and problem solve as they encounter unique geometry and measurement challenges at this highly interactive website. How does it work? As students work through the tasks, they can access hints to help them along. These hints are brief math tutorials with explanations and examples. At any time, students may check their work to get feedback on how they are progressing. When students successfully complete a task, they are asked to "Make the Math Connection." This additional question was designed to reinforce students' knowledge of the math concept and provide another opportunity for students to apply their knowledge. Students can sign in to save their work. No email address is required to sign-in/register. Registering is especially helpful if a planned project takes several days. Students can also view "Math in Action" videos to see how people such as architects and cake designers use geometry and measurement concepts everyday in their jobs.

Be sure to visit the Teacher Resources section which includes standards, lesson plans, tips, and math in action videos.

This applet provides great opportunities to explore experimental and theoretical probabilities by changing the area of the colored regions of the circle. When a section is added it reduces the other sections by an equal amount in order to add the new sector. When this occurs, the probability that that particular color will be landed on will change. The number of sections of the circle can be changed from 1 to 12, as each spin is made, the color is recorded along with the percentage of time each color has appeared.

Be sure to visit the learner section of the site which contains a nice description of probability and how it is used in the real world. The instructor section also has a lot of valuable information including links to standards and textbooks, classroom information, and related resources. In addition, there is a link to a printable sheet of exploration questions to be used with the site.

tag(s): probability (135), statistics (125)

#### In the Classroom

Introduce this site on your interactive whiteboard or projector. Then have students explore this site independently or in small groups to complete the exploration questions.
