This site provides countless books, films, plays, and television shows that all relate to specific math concepts. What a fabulous way to integrate math, language arts, history, and more! The site includes the title, year, and brief description. Teachers can browse by genre, medium, motif, and/or topic. Media include everything from comic books to plays to television series. Genres include historical fiction, children's literature, adventure/espionage, fantasy, science fiction, and more. Sixty-three fiction offerings are even available FREE (in their entirety) online! The site is still developing and frequently adds additional fiction titles. Students who enjoy fantasy will also enjoy choosing books from this site, since the author admits that not all math mentioned in all the books is "real" math!! The site allows teachers to search by keyword and also to browse new offerings in the compilation of titles.

tag(s): logic (235), probability (130), statistics (122)

In the Classroom

Use this site to find extra reading choices for reluctant readers who are interested in technology and math. Use it also to show students that math processes are inherent in a lot of life's experiences. Search the site for your current math topics. Share this link on your class website for students (and parents) to use at home. Share it with your school librarian for a featured reading shelf. Challenge your more verbal/linguistic gifted students to write similar stories that feature a math concept and create an online book using a tool such as Bookemon, reviewed here.

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!

tag(s): coordinates (32), exponents (42), fractions (239), integers (41), percent (82)

In the Classroom

Use this site for extra practice or answering a problem after initial teaching. Identify strengths and weaknesses for grouping students in solving problems. Share this link on your class website for students to use for extra practice and as a resource outside of the classroom.

Tutpup allows students to practice math skills and spelling skills with students from around the world. Users can choose from the following categories: Spelling, Maths 101, Maths Mix, Algebra, and Time Tables. Topics include addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, algebra, spelling (by listening to the word), and more. Students can also choose a skill level from very easy to very difficult. Results are posted at the end of the game. Teachers can sign up for free under a class name that tags students to that id number.

Caution: this site is still in beta, so you may notice some slight changes as it grows. The site does offer you the option to "Join," you can access all activities (at this point) without registering. The site was created in the UK, so some of the pronunciations and spellings may differ than in American English. Also, this site requires Flash. You can get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page.

tag(s): addition (251), division (172), listening (91), multiplication (227), spelling (168), subtraction (208), vision (87)

In the Classroom

What a great site for those competitive-spirited math junkies as well as for students who may need remediation on particular skill areas. This is an all-around great practice site. Share this site on your interactive whiteboard or projector. Set up learning stations for students to try out the activities. If individual computers are available, have students work at their own math or spelling levels. Have students keep a log of activities they complete and how well they do, since you will not be able to monitor a center. List this site on your class website for students to access both in and out of your classroom, to practice both math and language arts.

Ever wonder what it would be like to have open access to lectures at Harvard? Stanford? MIT? Academic Earth gives you that access in a limited fashion. This site contains thousands of video lectures by some of the most well regarded professors at several of the top universities in the US. You can sort the lectures by subject, by lecturer, by university, or by "playlist." The playlists sort lectures from various topics and multiple professors into thematic groups. Within individual subjects there are individual lectures and courses--collections of lectures by the same professor on a general subject. Watch a lecture on "The Civil War and Reconstruction Era, 1845-1877," or "The American Novel since 1945," or "Linear Algebra." The topic possibilities go on and on. This site requires Flash. You can get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page.

tag(s): college (43)

In the Classroom

These are college-level lectures given at Ivy-league universities. The subject matter and the complexity of the subject matter will be beyond many high school students, and the delivery format (video-taped lecture) means there is a certain "MEGO" (my eyes glaze over) effect when viewing these offerings. However, for gifted or academically talented students, these lectures may be exactly the kind of enrichment they have been thirsting for. Provide a link to these lectures for times when a student or two has gotten way ahead of the rest of the class. Let parents know about this site for home use. Refer students who are doing in-depth research. And in your own copious free time, check one out yourself! It may provide an idea or two to apply to an upcoming lesson of your own.

Although this website may appear as an in-depth informational algebra site, there is A LOT more to explore! AlgebraLAB includes 10+ links to various topics: Lessons, Practice, Careers (how Algebra and science are used in countless careers), Directions (offers insight on how to use this site), Word Problems, Study Aids, a Glossary, and several others. Many activities are interactive. This site requires Windows Media Player. You can get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page.

tag(s): calculators (41), coordinates (32), equations (155), vectors (25)

In the Classroom

This informational site is a MUST HAVE in any secondary math class. Be certain to save this site in your favorites. The site highlights countless algebra topics (and other math areas). Share the information on your interactive whiteboard or projector. Share the link on your class website so students can access the site both in and out of the classroom. Have cooperative learning groups explore one of the topics presented at the lessons or activities link. Have the groups create a video to share what they learned. Share the videos on your interactive whiteboard or projector using a tool such as TeacherTube (explained here). Differentiate! You can easily find extension activities for your more-able students to do while you reinforce the basics with others.

This site features engaging movie scenes (in Quicktime and Flash formats) that involve Math problems. Beside each clip and title is an explanation of the Math concept in the clip. Most are secondary level, but a few are for lower grades. If you click on the TITLE of the movie, you will be lead to a site to purchase, rate, and/or view the movie in its entirety. To avoid this confusion, be sure to click on the "Play the Flash Version or QuickTime" links. These links lead directly to the "math clip." Links at the bottom lead to other movie collections websites.

tag(s): logic (235), movies (64), patterns (85)

In the Classroom

Use the links "Begin of Lectures in College teaching" and "The end of lectures in college teaching" to identify effective and ineffective teaching elements at all levels. Use these clips for anticipatory set or activators at the start of a lesson or introduction of a concept. Share the video clips on your interactive whiteboard or projector. Discuss the concepts as a class or have students work in cooperative learning groups. See if students can identify any other movie or television show that has used math concepts. If time permits, have students create their own mini-dramas that include discussion of math concepts within the story.

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.

This site, designed especially for middle school students, highlights the basic foundations of math, geology, chemistry, physics, and biology. Although this site is recommended for middle school students, it is also appropriate for high school students studying the subject areas. It is mainly a "text" site, without interactives. However, this is a great resource for explaining complex topics, researching specific topics in science and math, and much more. Each general area (i.e. geology or biology), includes several sub-topics. There are also links to activities for students, project ideas, and Teacher's Guides. There are two caveats: there are some advertisements -- nothing too distracting -- AND some of the suggested activities include "buying" a book from Amazon. You do NOT need to purchase anything to take advantage of this free resource!

tag(s): atoms (55), diseases (66), earth (228), earthquakes (48), electricity (89), medicine (67), rocks (49), weather (188)

In the Classroom

Use portions of this site as an anticipatory set in your science or math class. The information is simple to understand and would be useful for students struggling with a topic. Use the site for research about specific topics. Have teams of students explore each of the "sub-topics" within the main topic and then create an interactive presentation (Powerpoint, video, or wiki) to share the information with their class. Why not list this link on your class website, so students can access the page both in and out of the classroom.

Use this site to introduce, practice, and review intermediate calculator skills. Scroll to the bottom of the screen to find the interactive. There are three options at this site: Revision Bite offers a great introduction (or review) of the skills, there is also an interactive calculator with several questions to challenge your students, and finally an online quiz. Most of the questions are designed for middle school math classes. The interactive provides sound clips and motivation (a skateboarder). This site requires Flash. You can get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page.

Looking for some challenging ways to practice number patterns and sequence? This "kid-friendly" site offers practice activities for a variety of patterns (including negative integers). Scroll to the bottom of the screen to find the activity. You can try the activity again and again with new patterns to figure out. Sound clips and interesting "surprises" are provided when students find the correct patterns.

In addition to the practice activity, there is also an online quiz (multiple choice) and a Revision Bite which offers detailed information about patterns and sequence (useful for introducing new material or review.

The entire interactive is embeddable by copying/pasting the "code" into your class web page or wiki. Many of the activities at this site require Flash. You can get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page.

tag(s): negative numbers (22), numbers (204), patterns (85)

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 number patterns. 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 number activities using PowerPoint (plus graphics),creating a blog, or even creating their own educational videos demonstrating interesting patterns and sharing them on TeacherTube (explained here).

Provide this link in your class newsletter and on your class website so students can practice math and number patterns at home.

This site offers FREE interactive math tools: qualitative grapher, piecewise linear grapher, linear transformer, function analyzer, quadratic transformer, system solver, plopit, and proportioner. Originally the interactives required special software, but they now run directly from the web site without any special installation or download. The interactives all include a real-time connection between math concepts (graphical or symbolic) and the representations. The activities provide visual illustrations to enhance algebra class. They allow for accelerated learning. And you are even able to save images to share with classmates.

The "Qualitative Grapher" demonstrates the meaning of a function and see how it can be seen as something changing over time. The "Proportioner" highlights scale and proportion and allows you to compare image dimensions. All of the other individual activities highlight other upper level math skills. This site requires Java and Adobe Acrobat. You can get both from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page.

tag(s): mean (25), median (22), statistics (122)

In the Classroom

Share this site on an interactive whiteboard or projector to help students visualize concepts learned in class. Have students work in pairs to try some of the activities that enhance your secondary math units. List this link on your class website, so students can practice these math skills at home.
 This resource requires PDF reader software like Adobe Acrobat.

This site, created by a college professor, offers a great deal of information about algebra and the general fundamentals of upper level mathematics. The site features tutorial videos, online lessons (non-interactive), study skills tips, a learning style inventory, internet homework assignments, and more. Although the site was created for beginning college students, it could easily be used in high school algebra classes. Some of the interactives require Flash. You can get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page.

tag(s): equations (155)

In the Classroom

If you teach algebra or other high school math subjects, save this site in your favorites. Use the homework assignments and online lessons for instructional purposes or additional practice of newly learned skills. Share the tutorial videos on an interactive whiteboard or projector. Be sure to provide this link on your class website so students can access the site (and practice math) at home.
