This "drag and drop" activity challenges students to put fractions in order from the lowest to the highest. Scroll to the bottom of this teacher page to find the activity. The activity continues to offer new numbers and options, so you may "play" as often as you wish. The activity offers a full screen option. There is also a link for reviewing information or introducing the topic (Revision Bite) and an online quiz. The entire interactive is embeddable by copying/pasting the "code" into your class web page or wiki.

tag(s): fractions (239)

In the Classroom

Share this site with your students on your interactive whiteboard or projector. Use the Revision Bite as an anticipatory set for a lesson about fractions. Then use the activities and online quiz as enhancements to your lesson (or even AS the lesson). The site is ready to go, easy to follow, educational, and simple for both teachers and students to use. Why not have students work in groups and create their own interactive fraction activities using PowerPoint (including graphics), or even create their own videos demonstrating fractions and share them on TeacherTube (explained here).

Provide this link in your class newsletter so students can practice fractions at home.

This is a fabulous website for all levels of fraction instruction (there are five difficulty levels). The website offers both interactive challenges and printable worksheets. Students will love the pizza fun and other graphics used at this website - check it out. Level 2 is a TERRIFIC way to help students read fraction markings on a ruler, always a challenge for some. Some of the activities require Flash, get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page..

tag(s): fractions (239)

In the Classroom

Use an interactive whiteboard to introduce this activity. Then differentiate the instruction and allow students to work on their own computers at their own levels. For more instructions on how to use this website, visit the "support materials" link.

Wired Math organizes a variety of math interactives, challenges, lessons, and enrichment opportunities from various sources to be used by students, teachers, tutors, and parents. The original site was created for middle grades, but some of the topics are useful at lower and higher levels. Math topics included range from fractions and simple multiplication to ratio, rate, and proportional relationships. The activities are simple to play and have a convenient help feature just in case you feel confused. Most of these activities require Shockwave.
This site includes advertising.

tag(s): area (66), decimals (133), enrichment (13), exponents (42), factors (42), fractions (239), integers (41), multiplication (227), percent (82), polynomials (32), prime numbers (31), ratios (53), square roots (24)

In the Classroom

Try integrating these activities into (or as an alternative for) traditional math practice. The beauty of this type of practice is that students receive immediate feedback, before they have already started to internalize the wrong procedure and in time to learn the correct methods. Share this site on your interactive whiteboard as one of several learning stations or practice options. If individual computers are available, allow students time to explore and log their progress against an individual math nemesis. Provide this link on your class webpage for students to access both in and out of class.

The goal of this site is to demonstrate the beauty of mathematics. The creator also wants to show the wonder and intellectual playfulness of math. Included on the site are many videos and essays exploring higher level mathematics. Titles include "How to Think Like a School Math Genius", "A Cute Finger Trick for Trigonometry", and "What is Zero to the Zeroth Power?". Most video titles are approximately 10 minutes in length. Also available on the site are two free PDF downloads: Guide to Everything Quadratic and Guide to Fractions. Be aware: parts of this site require some navigation (a few clicks) to get to your destination. But the "clicks" are well worth the time. At the time of this review, the link to "Curriculum Tidbits" was not active, but the Think Curriculum tab works. Although the author's books are available for sale on the site, there is plenty of free material available making the site worth exploring.
This site includes advertising.

tag(s): critical thinking (108), fractions (239), gifted (96), prime numbers (31), probability (130), puzzles (208), video (254)

In the Classroom

Use your interactive whiteboard (or projector) to view videos available on the site. This site is perfect for advanced or gifted students to use for learning new concepts or exploring different approaches to mathematics not typically covered in classroom materials. After sharing this site on your interactive whiteboard, allow students to explore the site on their own. Challenge your students to create their own videos demonstrating a tough math concept. Share the videos using a site such as TeacherTube reviewed here.

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 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.

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.

The DeciFractor converts fractions to decimals from numbers you input. Fractions are then converted to their decimal value. There are several fractions already available on the site to use as demonstration; however the option is there to enter any fraction you would like. The numerator and denominator are clearly labeled and each of these numbers can be increased or decreased to demonstrate how the decimal will change by changing each part of the fraction.

tag(s): decimals (133), fractions (239), number sense (97)

In the Classroom

Use on the interactive whiteboard or projector to demonstrate and practice fraction to decimal equivalences. Before clicking to converta fraction you enter, have student predict the result. Use your whiteboard (and this site) to create a learning station for students to "try their hand at." Have students investigate patterns made by changing fractional parts. Be sure to click on the Ideas button towards the bottom of the page to get more ideas about how to use DeciFractor with your students.

This site provides students the opportunity to visually relate fractions within a square or circle to the representation of the same fraction on a number line. The activity begins with empty shapes, with the pointer pointing to zero. As the desired sections are colored, the pointer moves along the number line corresponding to the fraction of the shape that bas been colored. The instructor area of the website provides information on how the activity corresponds within the math curriculum, links to standards, classroom preparation and links to related resources.

tag(s): estimation (46), fractions (239), number lines (22), numbers (204)

In the Classroom

Demonstrate the activity on your interactive whiteboard or projector, then allows students to explore on their own on classroom or lab computers. For assessment or accountability, have students recreate several fractions found during their exploration. Provide a link to the site on your classroom website or blog for practice at home.

This site connects your knowledge of fractions and length to musical pitch through many visual explanations and hands-on activities. The introductory page explains using fractions to create notes on a scale along with an interactive activity to create your own song using the fraction bars. Be sure to visit the page with instructions on creating your own fraction musical tubes using PVC pipe. You can even play your own song using virtual musical tubes right on the site! Other interesting parts of the site include drum notes from Ghana and ancient melodies from Mexico.

tag(s): fractions (239), musical notation (35), songs (52)

In the Classroom

Share this site on your interactive whiteboard or projector. Have students create their own fraction tubes using PVC pipe (or drinking straws) based on instructions on the site. Create a link on classroom computers for students to explore tones created by fraction tubes (virtually). Share this site with the music teacher to use when coordinating math and music lessons.

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 (88), fractions (239), polynomials (32), symmetry (55)

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.

Finding fun and varied activities to keep students moving isn't always easy. The Teacher Toolbox on this site is the perfect find for quick and easy daily activities. After finding the toolbox, click on the black bar near the top of the page with the link to calendars. Here is where you will find monthly calendars (in English and Spanish) and divided by age levels - Early Childhood, Elementary, and Secondary - with a quick and easy physical activity to accomplish for the day. Calendars are also archived back to 2009 so there are several options for each month.

tag(s): calendars (44), fitness (49)

In the Classroom

Plan with the Physical Education teacher to incorporate suggested activities into the curriculum. Use the calendars during math class when teaching calendar skills such as days of the week, elapsed time, and more. Have students graph how many activities they completed each month and challenge students to improve each month. Use on online graphing tool using a site like Statistic - Johnnie's Math Page reviewed here. Practice fractions by comparing activities completed to activities performed each month, compare different students' calendars and fractional representations. Share on your classroom webpage or blog with parents as examples of fun, simple activities to improve student's healthy and decrease obesity.
