Calcoolate is an online, fast, scientific calculator. It has a clean interface and, unlike other online calculators, doesn't clutter your screen with unnecessary calculator buttons that you can input from your keyboard (1,2,3, +, -,* etc). It supports simple and trigonometric or scientific math functions (sin, cos, log, etc), instantly highlights any errors in your input, and automatically saves a history of your previous calculations. The preferences page allows for further customization of the calculator: choose to use either a dot or comma as the decimal point, save the history (or not), and show angles in radians or degrees. In addition to the calculator, there is an online conversion tool. This tool performs conversions for distance and length, speed, temperature, weight, volume, area, and currency. Your computer's calculator history will also show on screen when performing conversions. Although the advertisements on this page can be a bit "flashy," this site is definitely worth using!
This site includes advertising.

tag(s): calculators (41), conversions (23), measurement (158)

In the Classroom

Share this site on your interactive whiteboard or projector when performing operations and conversions in math and science. Use the history as a reference for comparing calculations performed. (Some school computers may "blow out" the computer "cookies" that store this history.) Share a link to the site on your classroom website or blog for students to use at home.

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 (158)

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.
This site includes advertising.

tag(s): charts and graphs (195), coordinates (32), decimals (133), estimation (46), fractions (239), measurement (158), money (193), number sense (97), operations (126), 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.

Discover better perspective on the size of the universe using this interactive. Use the slider at the bottom to move from the atomic, cellular, and human perspective all the way to the size of the galaxy. Units are displayed alongside images. Warning: underneath the interactive, there is a public comment area. You may want to preview this area if allowing students to navigate on their own.

tag(s): atoms (56), cells (102), measurement (158), space (205)

In the Classroom

Use as an introductory unit to measurement, or when discussing atoms or cellular parts. Allow students time to roam the site in groups and notice the units given. Ask them to determine the relationships between the units as they move through the slider from the smallest to the largest. Use this to frame the size of microscopic items observed in class. Create a measurement unit scale for display in the room.

The site was originally intended as a digital storage place for the creator's resources used in consulting work and evolved into a place to share math resources with other teachers. Included topics are numbers, geometry, and measurement/data. After choosing a topic, activities are divided by grade level. Be sure to look at other grade levels for activities that can be modified for your teaching situation. Also available on the site is extensive information about Math Journals (warning - their math journals are for sale on the site; however, information to make and use your own is free). Other topics include math games, centers, projects, mental math, and resources - including some for interactive whiteboards.

In the Classroom

Use this site as a resource to supplement current classroom activities. If you are just implementing math journals, this site is a wonderful resource for ideas and implementation. Print out game directions for use at centers or in folders. Share this site on your class webpage for students to access both in and out of the class for extra practice and/or enrichment.

Comments

This site has proved an invaluable resource for teachers at my school. Lots of great resources for Math Centers/small group work and the journal tasks for K-5 are all really good! Highly recommend it to any teachers and/or math coaches trying to get their head around the Common Core Standards. Jane, , Grades: 0 - 5

This site is the ultimate resource for any measurement or conversion need. Calculators are included for Math, Science, Cooking, Time, and much more. Categories are listed in alphabetical order from Acceleration to Weight/Mass. Within each category are the different converters/calculators. For example, after choosing volume, choices include acres, barrels (dry, federal, liquid, and wine), cubic units, gallons, quarts teaspoons, yards, and more. Other interesting conversions include your weight on other planets, your age in dog years, and translations to and from Pig Latin. You are sure to find exactly the conversion for any need within this site along with others to use just for fun!

This activity offers students practice with problem solving and directional skills. The goal is to follow directions (or create your own) and get the turtle to the pond. Extensions are offered for getting the turtle to the pond in the shortest number of steps, straightest line, and more. Be sure to check out the lesson plan to the right of the applet for instructions on using in your classroom.

tag(s): maps (287), measurement (158)

In the Classroom

Introduce the site on your interactive whiteboard or projector and demonstrate how to create and follow directions, then allow students to explore the site on their own, with a partner, or on the interactive whiteboard themselves. Create a link on classroom computers for students to use as a center. After students complete a path, have them map it on a piece of paper, then post the different routes and sets of directions in your classroom for other students to follow. Extend the challenge further by having students make mystery paths throughout the school!

MathLibs offers multiplication practice and short slide presentations on various math strands. Multiplication practice is in the format of a word problem. Before starting the problems, players input several different names based on prompts. The prompts ask for teacher's names, boys and girls names, annoying boys names, etc. (like Mad Libs). These names are then inserted into the word problems to be solved. The slide presentations offer short tutorials on numbers, patterns, measurement, geometry, graphing, and probability.

tag(s): charts and graphs (195), measurement (158), numbers (204), patterns (85), probability (130)

In the Classroom

Use the slide presentations as an introduction to new math units or as review before quizzes and tests. Create a link on your website or blog for students to practice at home. Use the MathLib word problems as examples, then have students create their own MathLib problems and share them on a class wiki.
