Wish you could find out what a pre-calculus class does on a daily basis? Read this blog and the diary entries, conversations, and reflections from students within the class. Students are assigned as scribes responsible for reporting on the day's events down to the reminder of the homework assignment. This blog is a great way for students to recap learning for the day, correct misunderstood information and continue class conversations. Use their musings as a great review of material covered in a pre-calculus class. Be sure to check this site at school as many filters will block blogs.

In the Classroom

Allow students the opportunity to review posts of related information being studied. Teachers, find a great variety of different ways to introduce, explain, and enhance the learning of pre-calculus topics. Many of the ideas use an interactive whiteboard and computers for students to access. Why not start your own Pre-Cal wiki. Want to learn how? Check out the TeachersFirst's Wiki Walk-Through.

This math site is a MUST SEE for teachers of all grade levels. Much of this site is designed for K-8 teachers, but there are a few activities for the high school grades. Although the site is mainly a drill and practice, it offers such an array of topics and levels that there is something for everyone here (and it is terrific for differentiating lessons in the classroom). Sample topics include roman numerals, Algebra II, pre-algebra, measurement, absolute value, early childhood math, telling time, money, place value, fractions, decimals, mixed operations, and more! And did we mention, each topic include rich, colorful interactives for students to practice skills! Most topics also include options to specify content (for example, choosing to practice addition, subtraction, multiplication, or division).

tag(s): decimals (133), fractions (239), money (193), place value (56), preK (279), roman numerals (9), time (144)

In the Classroom

Introduce this site on your interactive whiteboard, then allow students to explore on their own. This is a great site to use as a learning station or center. Be sure to list this link on your class website for extra practice or advanced materials for gifted students. Save this site in your favorites, since there are so many topics you are sure to find materials throughout the entire school year.

"When will we ever use this math stuff?" Answer this question using Math Apprentice. Choose a character and then begin the journey. Walk (or skateboard) to different work sites, buildings, or businesses. Learn how math is used every day in these work places: architecture, bike and toy makers, cafes, and more! Listen to a brief introduction of the concept. Solve problems or free play to identify math concepts in real life. No account or login is required.

tag(s): business (58), careers (132), equations (155), measurement (159), ratios (53), STEM (134)

In the Classroom

This site is a terrific example of STEM integrated learning. This is a great site to share on your interactive whiteboard or projector. Have cooperative learning groups explore different careers or buildings and share how math is used at their locations. Why not have groups create a video using a tool such as Teachers.TV (reviewed here) or a podcast using PodOmatic (reviewed here), to share their mathematical discoveries! At the end of an introduction of a concept, use this site for specific math practice using a real life concept. For example, visit the bike shop to use math to determine pedal gear to wheel gear ratios and resultant bike speeds. Use as an individual activity, a team activity, or with the entire class using an interactive whiteboard. Follow up with a personal problem to solve. In this example, students can measure the two gears on their bikes (or their teachers bike brought into the classroom) to use the information for further understanding.

This math website is a resource for basic information on math concepts. Although it is rather "plain vanilla" in design, it provides some valuable information. Concepts include: Basic Math Skills, Pre-calculus, Calculus, Beyond Calculus, and Other Stuff. Dan also provides links to neat math extras like paradoxes and riddles.

tag(s): decimals (133), exponents (42), fractions (239), numbers (204), operations (126), order of operations (33), percent (82), prime numbers (31), square roots (24)

In the Classroom

The basic information on the concepts of math could easily be used in online teaching as an option to a formal textbook. The reading is easy to understand, and to-the-point. The problem of the week section of the site could be used as a challenge activity for students once a week in different math classes. Provide this link on your class website for help to struggling students or for your math lovers to explore on their own.

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.

This incredible site is a database of videos on an abundance of topics! They are arranged by topic and very easy to access. The general subjects include physical science, life science, earth and space, social studies, math, English, and the human body. Each of the subjects includes 10+ topics. And each of the topics includes countless videos. You truly have to see this collection to believe it! There are lessons "ready to go" on video: Civil Rights Movement, Ice Age, Allergies, Subtracting Negative Numbers, Electricity, and MANY others.

NOTE: Although the videos are listed on this site, they actually "live" elsewhere on the Internet, so some videos may be blocked in your school (those on YouTube, for example). Always pretest to be sure the video you hope to use is accessible at school!

tag(s): ecosystems (88), insects (69), phonics (75), probability (130), solar system (119), speaking (24), statistics (122), writing (358)

In the Classroom

Share these videos on your interactive whiteboard or projector. This is a great site to use when planning for substitute teachers, as an introduction to a new unit, or even as additional information on a specific topic.

Challenge cooperative learning groups to create their own videos about topics being studied in social studies, science, math, or nearly any other topic. Share the videos using Teachers.TV reviewed here. Include this link on your class web page for students to access outside of schools for reinforcement and further exploration of concepts.

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.

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.

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."

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.

View math screencasts for grades K-7 or by topic (algebra, trigonometry, calculus, pre-calculus, or financial math). The topics for grades K-7 range from number sense to mathematical reasoning to statistics, data analysis, & probability. Follow common problems, example exam questions, and problems of the day. View video clips (some made by students)!. The videos require Flash. You can get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page.

tag(s): addition (251), counting (120), measurement (159), numbers (204), probability (130), statistics (122)

In the Classroom

Use this site for homework help, explaining solutions to problems, and extra credit problems to solve. Share the video clips on your interactive whiteboard or projector as an introduction to a new topic or for review, especially for your visual learners! Have students think out loud and create their own instructional videos for math concepts and share them on a tool such as SchoolTube (reviewed here). Be sure to list this link on your class website for students to use both in and out of the classroom. Note: since content is user-contributed, you will want to talk with your students about who created the materials (students, teachers, professors) and how to tell.

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.
