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..

Interested in learning how to use your interactive Smartboard (or any brand of whiteboard) to support good math instruction? View interactive activities by Kentucky Math standards, grade level, or content. Preview the resource or download (SMART Notebook format only) for use in the classroom. SMARTboard software is required for using downloaded files. Other activities feature activities using content from another site and a description for using the resource. Many of the outside sites are interactive (and fantastic).

The activities are divided up by grade level. There is something here for all grade levels. You can also search activities by name: clock templates, Pythagorean theorem, graphing coordinate pairs, spinners, and many others.

tag(s): charts and graphs (195), counting (120), fractions (239), iwb (31), numbers (204), patterns (85), volume (45)

In the Classroom

Unlock the power of the interactive whiteboard by using these activities to introduce or reinforce concepts in a variety of Math subjects. For example, teach geometry using the "Geometry in Action" activity which uses architecture to teach geometric concepts or use "Cubic Volume" to fill a rectangular prism with cubes to determine the volume. Be sure to check out the external sites also, there are some gems! If you have a different brand of whiteboard, preview the ideas for the downloadable files, then check your company's software for an equivalent activity. Many offer very similar resources.

Online games CAN help students learn! Use this free site to play math games against other opponents or a computer. Learn about fractions, factors, multiples, and symmetry among others. Practice important skills using basic multiplication and have fun learning math. In order to play all games, a log in is required. However, you can do some of the activities using a "Guest Pass." Just click on the "Guest Pass" link to begin. With this option, you can't play against other players - only the computer. At the time of this review, all five interactives were available to guests. Log in to play against others in and out of your class. Registering with the site also allows you to save your game.

Specific activities include "Square Off," "Factor Dazzle," "Fraction Feud," "Times Square," and "Slam Ball". Click on the "For Parents and Educators" tab to learn more about each game and the content area being addressed.

tag(s): decimals (133), fractions (239), multiples (35)

Use this free learning tool that combines the best research of game theory to learn about pre-algebra. A compelling story is woven through multi-level puzzle play to build pre-algebra skills in proportions, fractions, ratios, variables, equations, and operations. Lure of the labyrinth is an underground world inhabited with monsters and really gross food and slimy materials sure to make a middle school student smile. Students operate in this activity as a monster avatar in a shadowy factory. The mission is to rescue and save their missing pet as well as others. Play this game individually or in teams. Players can communicate online to exchange ideas and strategies which encourage collaboration. Click on the "educator's guide" for great ideas and suggestions for integrating the game into your curriculum and the "quick start" for learning the basic ins and outs of the game. Videos are also available for learning the basic skills. Most students, however, know how to approach games and learn as they go. Registration with an email address for this site is required. Teachers should record student logins and passwords for students who may forget. Be sure to read the recommendations on the site for login creations as well as your district recommendations for student registrations. You may want to create your own Gmail account with up to 20 subaccounts for each group of students (by code name or number) within your classes. Here is a blog post that tells how to set up GMail subaccounts to use for any online membership service.

tag(s): equations (155), fractions (239), puzzles (208)

In the Classroom

Share this site on your interactive whiteboard or projector. Use this site to sharpen and advance pre-algebra skills using problem sets in this fun filled activity. Students groups can work collaboratively on solving problems. You may want to provide this link on your class website for additional enrichment at home (even if you don't have the time to do the activities during class).

Looking for extra practice and better ways to track student progress? Use this free site for explanations of concepts, see example problems, and answer a practice problem. The English is British style, so remember that "revise" on this site means the same as "review" to Americans. Teachers can register their students to follow their progress. Registration is free, but does require an email address. If you plan to have students register individually, you may want to create your own Gmail account with up to 20 subaccounts for each group of students (by code name or number) within your classes. Here is a blog post that tells how to set up GMail subaccounts to use for any online membership service.

Data on correct and incorrect answers as well as strengths and weaknesses are kept for students. This site does include some minor advertisements. Watch out for a link to "essay paper" buried at the far bottom right on the home page: a place to purchase essays online!

Visit the Seasonal Items link to find even MORE resources related to Read Across America, 100th Day ideas, Daily seasonal writing prompts, and much more! Many of the links will take you to other sites, but the onsite printable worksheets and calendars make it worth a visit. Note: the site is laden with advertising, something TeachersFirst users may not appreciate! This site requires Adobe Acrobat. You can get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page.

Although this site has a TON to explore, one of the best places on this site is the daily writing prompt section (find seasonal prompts at the Seasonal Items link). You can share them on your interactive whiteboard or projector with a picture and fact about the day and a question requiring a written answer. This is a great discussion starter or activating strategy with any grade level and it can already be posted when the kids enter the room or used as a prompt for blogging. Whatever subject area you teach, if you are looking for some new strategies to reach your students, check out this site.

Choose from a wide variety of lesson plans and ideas for elementary, middle school, high school, or college, all created using GeoGebra. View concepts on individual pages that house interactive applets (mini-programs) and downloadable, zipped versions. Depending on your computer's security settings, you may need to "tell" your computer to "trust" the source of the activity before it will "Run." Explore Math resources for Art, Music, and Physics. Some of the available activities have demos with audio explanations, as well. Be aware this wiki allows users to add content. You must log-in to add content, but you still may want to preview for accuracy before you share this site with your students. The users appear to all be math teachers, but some activities may be created by students.

tag(s): angles (88), coordinates (32), decimals (133), equations (155), fractions (239), integers (41), percent (82), volume (45)

In the Classroom

Use the applets to demonstrate concepts in Math. Use these as a review or as an introductory lesson for students to identify the rule. Many are well-suited for interactive whiteboards.

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.

Students can practice math skills independently (and in both English and Spanish) with this collection of challenging, interactive practice activities, organized by grade level and topic. Click Spanish version at the top for your ESL/ELL students to have access to the same valuable resources! The website says the activities are designed for students in grades K through eight. Topics vary greatly and include algebra, statistics, counting, comparing, decimals, basic operations, exponents, fractions, and many others. Nearly every math topic taught in elementary or middle school, will be found at this site. Once you click on the general topic area, be prepared for a HUGE list of specific choices to explore. Each math concept is explained in a simple paragraph and then students are presented with practice activities about the specific concept. The practice activities are timed.

Be aware there are several advertisements at this website (all appropriate). But considering this site is free (and full of ready to go math activities), the advertisements are worth the minor annoyance.

tag(s): estimation (46), exponents (42), measurement (159), mental math (27), money (193), patterns (85), place value (56), statistics (122)

In the Classroom

This site has countless possibilities in the classroom. Use the descriptions and activities as an anticipatory set for a new topic in math class. Share the activities on your interactive whiteboard or projector. Set up a learning station for students and differentiate the activities for your lower and higher level math students. Provide this link on your class website for students to use to review at home.

This set of 15 math activities teaches the basics of number theory, counting, and the like. Students click, or drag-and-drop to complete each game. Some examples of the activities include Weight, Bowling, Bus Counting, and many others. The instructions, however, require reading ability, so teachers or parents will likely need to help out. The link "Other Activities" provides additional details for the teacher (mainly about coinciding television programs). All activities require Flash. You can get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page.

tag(s): addition (251), counting (120), fractions (239), numbers (204), subtraction (208), time (144)

In the Classroom

Share these activities on an interactive whiteboard or projector. Have students take turns reading the instructions/stories. Set this site up as a math learning station for students to explore independently. Be sure to list this site on your class website or in your class newsletter (if applicable).

Math train is a "kids teaching kids" math project created from Mr. Marcos (and his students) of Lincoln Middle School. Browse student created, teacher created, or captioned math videos easily found using the search function. Videos can be viewed without a login. Most videos focus on a very specific topic and are short in length. Use the url or the embed code to share the video and add comments. Teachers and students can join math train and upload videos to teach math concepts to others. Registration requires an email account. Check your district's acceptable use policy regarding student use of email addresses. This site requires Flash. You can get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page. Note: the "we are upgrading" message does not prevent you from using the site!

tag(s): area (66), decimals (133), fractions (239), square roots (24), tutorials (47)

In the Classroom

Use this site as a resource to teach students basic and more complex math problems. Use your interactive whiteboard or projector to share this site with your students. Students can also be assigned a similar project in the classroom for peer teaching and learning. Use a class website or wiki to show your student-created video or register on the Math train site to upload video in this education-specific environment. (Of course you will want to check your school policies on sharing student work online. You might even use the Record feature of your interactive whiteboard software, if your computer has the memory to handle it. Have students view a video and create problem sets for other students to solve. Students can identify potential real life problems and the math skill necessary to solve it. This is definitely a site that you will want to save in your favorites and visit often (they add new videos frequently). Be sure to provide this link on your class website, so students can search the site when confused about a specific concept or for some extra practice before a test.
