Wolfram Tones is a different and dynamic approach to thinking about music. Instantly create music and download it to your computer. Choose tone style, select a variation, and adjust the tone by using the generator, instrumentation, pitch mapping, or time controls. Save your "tone" to your collection or email it to friends. Your collection is associated to the computer where you make it using web browser cookies so no registration is necessary. Tones are packaged as midi files. Mathematical rules create these complex forms of music on Wolfram Tones. The program takes the mathematical pattern and turns it onto its side to produce a musical score. Here, the height of the pattern is the pitch of the note. More than just a musical resource, this website allows you to see and hear math. This site requires Real Player.

tag(s): music theory (42), musical instruments (48), patterns (85), sound (100), sounds (68)

In the Classroom

In math class, have students choose and analyze a musical pattern as part of a unit on algorithms. Have them change the parameters using the program controls to produce a sound that they like. Then have them relate the changes they hear to the changes in the math. In music class, have students create their own portfolio of music using Wolfram Tones. Encourage students to replicate their tones with their own musical instruments. Your talented math/music students and gifted students will love this site! Be sure to share the link on your class web page for easy access.

LearnZillion is a video platform that combines video lessons, assessments, and progress reporting. Lessons highlight Common Core Standards in Math for grades 3 - 9. Each lesson is given in a video format, generally about 5 minutes per lesson. The lesson ends with a practice video. You are also presented with practice problems, and the answers are demonstrated and discussed. Teachers can sign up for a free account offering many special features of the site. Create customized playlists for students by dragging and dropping videos onto your playlist. Many lessons have a behind the scenes commentary just for teachers to watch before teaching a lesson to explain the rationale behind what is included. Featured materials can be downloaded for use in class. Short quizzes at the end of each lesson are scored and updated in student profiles, providing you with quick assessment information. Create individualized playlists for students to customize and differentiate instruction. Find lessons by using the Explore link on the site, choosing a general topic, then a more specific category. Each lesson includes the Common Core Standard addressed above the video lesson.

Math Pickle goes WAY beyond traditional math drill and skill games or math problem worksheets. There are mathematics videos for kindergarten through twelfth grade. The videos feature real students engaging in inspiring math problems and puzzles. The videos often speak to unsolved math problems throughout history. In the unsolved problem, you must use developmentally appropriate math to work out the problem. To begin, choose a grade level to search. Each video for that grade level has a short description of the task to be completed. Most videos are fairly short, from 3 to 10 minutes, and are accompanied by a PowerPoint and a Keynote presentation of the lesson. Many also include some additional worksheets or handouts. Read video explanations to find out whether they are intended for teacher or student viewing-- or both.

tag(s): logic (235), number sense (97), operations (126), problem solving (272)

In the Classroom

Bookmark this site to use as a resource for challenging math activities for the classroom. Use these videos and activities with gifted students to promote problem solving, trial and error, and exploration of concepts. This collection includes a wealth of professional material to inspire new teaching strategies. Videos are hosted on YouTube. If your district blocks YouTube, then they may not be viewable. You could always view that 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.

Zoo Whiz is an education site that encourages kids to be "whizzes" in math, reading, and word development. There are levels and content for students from 5 to 15 years old. There are over 11,200 interactive activities to help unleash the whiz in every student. Once sign-up (free) is complete, you are guided to provide the age range (5-6 is the youngest). This tailors activities to the individual child (great for differentiation). As students master the skill, more difficult activities are presented. Parents and teachers can easily view progress. The activities go beyond simple drill and skill to build higher order thinking skills and problem solving strategies. As students play games, they earn Zoo Whiz "money" that will allow them to purchase animals to build up their zoo. It is necessary to create an account on the site. Teachers can set up a class account with individual accounts for each student. Students can use the same account on home computers. Premium accounts are available with additional activities; however, there are many items available on the free portion of the site.

tag(s): audio books (32), grammar (216), logic (235), operations (126), preK (279), problem solving (272), punctuation (43), sight words (37), word choice (26)

In the Classroom

Create a classroom account and accounts for each student to monitor students' progress. This is an excellent tool for differentiating. If you don't want individual accounts, create one classroom account and have students can take turns earning money for the zoo and deciding how to spend it. Share this site with parents through your newsletter or classroom website as a resource for practice at home.

Discover irreverent, creative new projects featured every week in Evil Mad Scientist blog. This blog features applied science and math concepts in unique or unusual ways. A few of them push the envelope, but all will get you thinking. Every Wednesday, new projects tickle your imagination. Watch videos, read the latest stories, or comment on existing projects. Browse the shop,-- not to buy, but to see and analyze remarkable inventions. Join a mailing list to never miss new projects. Note: a few of the ideas involve hacking electronics and computers, so the site may be blocked by school filters. Preview to know for sure. See notes below on ways to share specific articles.
This site includes advertising.

tag(s): creativity (109), inventors and inventions (101), scientific method (64), STEM (134)

In the Classroom

Inspire creativity and original thinking with Evil Mad Scientist. Use as inspiration or examples for student projects in art, science, or music, research, or applied creativity. If you share a link with students, you may want to link to a specific post or use Readability (reviewed here) to provide a "clean view" of the post. Evaluate projects together on the IWB to help students identify characteristics of creativity and talk about how the ideas may have come to be. Use this site during a unit on scientific method so students connect the discipline of research with the creative results. What kind of experimenting took place? What principles of science? Compare the inventions available in the Shop with inventions from the Industrial Revolution. How is today a different environment for inventors (or is it?) Begin your own Evil Mad Scientist blog to feature your students' creativity or slightly irreverent ideas in a safe and school-appropriate environment, almost as an STEM graffiti wall.

Take a different look at math (and many other topics) through intriguing word equations! View a series of slides with many different equations such as secret = whisper - whisper again, unicycle = bicycle + oddness, among many others. Some of the concepts relate to life, government, and current events, not "math." Slides can be viewed in several different ways: choose random to view a random slide from the selections, or change the view to scrolling to go down the catalog of slides offered. Each slide contains a link so you can share it in through Facebook, Twitter, email, and more. The SHARE button is on the bottom left side of the screen.
This site includes advertising.

tag(s): creativity (109), logic (235), puzzles (208), vocabulary (324)

In the Classroom

Display a new slide on your interactive whiteboard (or projector) weekly as a conversation-starter in a math class, social studies class, or gifted classroom. Ask students to explain what the equation might mean. Challenge students to create their own new math word equations and share them using a talking avatar using a photo (legally permitted to be reproduced). Use a site such as Blabberize (reviewed here). Much of the vocabulary used with the equations is very advanced. Use this in English class for vocabulary development. Then challenge students to create some of their own "equations" with other new vocabulary words.

In the Classroom

Use this resource to create homework help for students to peruse when they are stuck on their own trying to complete assignments. Create mini lessons for students to review or learn the material they may have missed. Consider allowing students to use your account to write a script and record mini lessons for use by other students. Even two recordings of the same lesson is valuable as information can be explained differently from more than one person.
