I like this idea. A homework assignment could be to print a page and then be required to make up a problem that fits the subject area. Thank you, Heather Heather, CA, Grades: 9 - 12

If you are looking for many different variations of math puzzles, look here. This site contains many puzzles of all kinds, together with links to other puzzles and mathematical recreation pages. The puzzles are marvelous, though many are a bit hard to understand -- often the author starts talking about a group of puzzles without explaining what the puzzle is. You may also have to work your way through some other random thoughts by the author; however, the puzzles on the page are worth sifting through the page to find them. Puzzles are listed in order of being added to the site, it may be easier to find items by looking on the right-hand side of the page and following the links listed under "Math Games". Activities are listed here by title without any explanation or picture, it would have been easier if they were in alphabetical order; however, this is still easier to find than scrolling through the long page of activities.

tag(s): logic (239), problem solving (273), puzzles (207), trivia (18)

In the Classroom

Introduce the site on your interactive whiteboard or projector then challenge students to choose a puzzle to solve. Have students explain the solution to the class. Use puzzles as a Problem of the Week for homework or extra credit by posting on your classroom website or blog.

This site lets you keep study notes with you anywhere you go! Create flashcards and study even on your mobile phone. Share notes, flashcards, study guides, and quizzes with others for excellent collaboration. Study Blue also provides hints to help students study. Create a folder in "My Backpack." Make flashcards to get started or search flashcards already created by others.

tag(s): flash cards (47)

In the Classroom

Use as a study aid for students. This is a great tool for older students (who own cell phones). Students can study their flashcards on the bus, in the backseat of the family car, or while waiting for their dentist appointment! Have students create individual accounts and collaborate with others or create a class account for all to use. Have groups collaborate on the creation of flashcards for students to use or have groups create flashcards for specific parts of the unit. Learning support students can take their extra help along with them.

This is the official website for the first math museum in the United States, opening in 2012. At the time of this review, this site is in its infancy but certainly shows potential as a wonderful math resource. Currently there are several videos from their "Math Encounters" presentations that help bring math to life. Topics include Symmetry, Art and Illusion, the Geometry of Origami, Geometric Sculpture Barn Raising, and more. One especially interesting portion of the site is Math Monday - a weekly column discussing fun, experiential topics in Mathematics. Previous topics include shadow folds, cut and fold Escher, and pencil star.
This site includes advertising.

tag(s): critical thinking (112), logic (239), origami (17), sculpture (22), video (276)

In the Classroom

Use activities from Math Monday during Math nights or competitions at school. Challenge students to choose one of the activities to create while discovering math concepts such as symmetry and angles. Show videos from Math Encounters to students on your interactive whiteboard (or projector) as supplements to classroom activities. Have older students create projects found on the site, then share and create them with younger students. Share the site with the art teacher and work together to have students create mathematical art projects.

"Aesthetic computing" is an approach to algebra that focuses on students representing algebraic equations as pictures and stories to increase student involvement and understanding. The goal is to engage students who would benefit through hands-on and visual approaches to learning. The site includes a 5 minute video describing the approach, an introduction to the theory including lesson plans and handouts, and learning outcomes. Lesson plans are divided into Middle School and High School categories. One interesting inclusion to the site is the online chat and group for teachers interested in trying the approach. The group is very small but might be worthwhile to use for networking with others using this approach.

tag(s): operations (123), problem solving (273), visualizations (13)

In the Classroom

Share this site with Special Education and Gifted teachers as the hands-on approach will appeal to both types of learners. Display and share students' pictures and stories in your classroom or on your classroom website. Challenge students to find the equation within the pictures and stories.

This site provides practice with addition of three digit numbers with and without regrouping, shown via base 10 blocks. Students input their own numbers to add, so you can use the site without repetition of problems. Once you choose two numbers, the representation of both numbers shows vertically using as base 10 blocks. The tool adds up each column for the student to see where they need to regrouping. If regrouping is necessary, the blocks combine and move to the appropriate column. Turn on audio by clicking on the yellow volume icon. What a fabulous way to learn the thousands, hundreds, tens, and ones.

tag(s): addition (239), regrouping (6)

In the Classroom

Use this site as an anticipatory set to introduce a unit or lesson on regrouping on a projector or interactive whiteboard. Have a student operate the site with classmates helping to direct him/her. Stop and discuss each step of the problem to demonstrate how and why regrouping takes place. Ask students to follow each of the steps with base 10 blocks at their seats. Make a shortcut to this site on classroom computers to use it as a center. Create a classroom bulletin board using a problem created by the class to demonstrate steps needed when regrouping.

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 (31), decimals (131), estimation (46), fractions (234), measurement (158), money (185), number sense (94), operations (123), rounding (22), time (139)

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.

This site offers dramatic, visual views of changes when zooming in or out by powers of ten. Simply click on the start page to begin the journey by looking at roses as we normally see them. By clicking on each of the numbers on the ruler below, you can see what happens at +10 squared and beyond up to 10 to the 26th value (the largest scale picture ever taken). You can also go to negative powers of 10 up to -15, the study of quarks. According to TeachersFirst user C.G., this site is based on a video. Watch the video here. Consider offering this site as a starter and the YouTube video (if accessible at school) for students who wish to know more. If your district blocks YouTube, then this may not be viewable. You could always view that at home and bring it to class "on a stick" to share. Use a tool such as KeepVid reviewed here to download the videos from YouTube.

tag(s): exponents (42), negative numbers (21), place value (55), square roots (23)

In the Classroom

Share this site on your interactive whiteboard or projector to help students visualize the dramatic changes between powers of ten. Allow students to experiment with the site on classroom computers. Provide a link on your class website to this interesting activity. Make ten even more "powerful" by having students write abstract poems about what they might see at different "powers."

Comments

Show your students video "The Powers of Ten" which is what the site was based on. It's fascinating. I don't know who was more amazed - my 5th graders or me. [Ed note: thanks for the video link. We have added it to the review!] Cindy, TX, Grades: 5 - 6

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.

Enter algebra problems and receive the solutions! Also included are many sample problems. Choose sample problems using the options on the right of the screen, from categories such as algebra concepts and expressions, simplifying or factoring polynomials, vectors, and much more. After creating a problem, select "solve" to find an answer. One major downfall of the site is that the option to see the steps needed to answer the problem leads to a pay site. However, the site is still worthwhile for students to check problem solutions.

In the Classroom

Share the site with students as a resource for checking homework. Provide this link on your class website. At the beginning of a unit, display the site on your interactive whiteboard or projector showing the solution to a new problem, and then allow students to investigate and discover how to find the answer. When they complain that the site does not explain how it "got" the answer, you have the perfect teaching moment to point out why you require students to "show their work" to remove such mystery.
