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.

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.

The site calls itself the "YouTube of Quizzes." This site allows you to create ONLINE quizzes. You MUST register to use this site. Registration does require an email address, user name, and password. Registration takes less than ten seconds, and is very simple.

Once registered, you click to create a quiz. Then you are asked to choose between a personality quiz or a scored quiz. This site offers extraordinary details. At the scored quiz, you are able to provide a title, tags, description, and choose the type of questions (multiple choice, essay, or fill in the blank). It is simple to insert images, change font styles, insert links, and even score the online quiz. You can create a pass/fail quiz, a graded quiz (with YOU determining what qualifies as an A, B, etc..). You are also able to set a time limit, issue a certificate of achievement, and fill in the possible total score.

Once students have taken the quiz, immediate feedback is provided (including a scale of all participants, the correct answers, final score, and grade). This is a fantastic tool to use to create online quizzes!

Caution: this site does include some minor advertisements. At the time of this review, all advertisements were appropriate. But it would be wise to advise students NOT to click off of the quiz onto any of the advertisements or links.
This site includes advertising.

tag(s): quiz (85)

In the Classroom

Use this site to create online quizzes. Create a quiz as a review to share on your interactive whiteboard or projector. Have students take the quiz independently or in cooperative learning groups.

This online calculator is able to graph in two or three dimensions. The advantage is the ability for all students to have the fastest, most capable calculator in class. Calc5 can be used to graph sin graphs, logarithms, and likely any graph needed in High School Math classes. A graph can include multiple functions. In order to see them, simply drag the graph. It is easy to zoom in and out of the graph. Students can take a screenshot of the graph in order to show in assignments or an online space. In Mac, simply hold the apple, shift, and number 4 key at the same time. Use the cursor (now a cross-hair) to drag a box around the picture and let go. The picture will be saved to the desktop. For PC, use the "Print Screen" button, then PASTE into any document or PowerPoint.

tag(s): charts and graphs (195)

In the Classroom

Use this site to allow all students access to a powerful calculator. Students can graph class problems and notice the differences in the graphs and account for them. Students can predict the shape of 2D and 3D graphs from the equation being used. Share the site on an interactive whiteboard and use the board's tools to draw atop or annotate the graphs.

Math train is a "kids teaching kids" math project created from Mr. Marcos (and his students) of Lincoln Middle School. Browse student created, teacher created, or captioned math videos easily found using the search function. Videos can be viewed without a login. Most videos focus on a very specific topic and are short in length. Use the url or the embed code to share the video and add comments. Teachers and students can join math train and upload videos to teach math concepts to others. Registration requires an email account. Check your district's acceptable use policy regarding student use of email addresses. This site requires Flash. You can get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page. Note: the "we are upgrading" message does not prevent you from using the site!

tag(s): area (66), decimals (133), fractions (239), square roots (24), tutorials (47)

In the Classroom

Use this site as a resource to teach students basic and more complex math problems. Use your interactive whiteboard or projector to share this site with your students. Students can also be assigned a similar project in the classroom for peer teaching and learning. Use a class website or wiki to show your student-created video or register on the Math train site to upload video in this education-specific environment. (Of course you will want to check your school policies on sharing student work online. You might even use the Record feature of your interactive whiteboard software, if your computer has the memory to handle it. Have students view a video and create problem sets for other students to solve. Students can identify potential real life problems and the math skill necessary to solve it. This is definitely a site that you will want to save in your favorites and visit often (they add new videos frequently). Be sure to provide this link on your class website, so students can search the site when confused about a specific concept or for some extra practice before a test.

Created by the BBC, this website offers higher-level algebra information and practice activities for algebra students ages 16+. Some of the information would be useful in pre-algebra classes also. Specific algebraic topics include Function, Polynomials, Recurrence Relations, Quadratic Theory, & Logarithms . Each topic includes a link to review activities (referred to as "Revise" on this British website) and online practice tests.

The website also includes a Site Guide (to assist teachers, parents, and students in navigating the site) and an "Ask a Teacher" link for students to read previous questions from students (and the answers) about specific difficult algebra concepts. Since this site was created by the UK, Americans may notice some slight language differences. Much of the information is available in a printable format. A few of the activities require Flash. You can get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page..

In the Classroom

Be sure to list this link on your class website, so students can use the information to review and practice at home. In the classroom, use an interactive whiteboard or projector to share the information and take the online test together. The Revise activities could be used as an anticipatory set for a new lesson or a review prior to a test. Have students try their hands at the online test using individual computers. If individual computers aren't available, print out the tests and send them home for additional practice.

This unusual website shares the "uniqueness" of a multitude of numbers. The numbers range from 0 - 9,999. This website teaches you what the only even prime number is, what a narcissistic number is, what the smallest number with 14 divisors is, and a LOT of other interesting mind-stretching information. The highlight of this website is the ability to click on math terms to learn more about the topic.

tag(s): angles (88), median (22), numbers (204), roman numerals (9), vocabulary (324)

In the Classroom

This is one of those sites that you have see to appreciate. Share the site on an interactive whiteboard. In more advanced classes, project a number on the screen as students walk in. Have students try to figure out what might make this number "special." Have students share their responses. This is a great "number of the day/mind-stretcher of the day" activity.

Or have students work on individual computers. Choose several of the numbers that relate to a topic that you are teaching (such as the square root), and have individual students learn about the number and then teach the class what they learned. Extend the idea by having students create "what's special" PowerPoint slides or wiki pages about favorite numbers. What better way to develop true number sense and excitement about math as a mental game.

This website is truly a rare find - combining math and reading skills. Although the main page is aesthetically plain, the activities are very challenging. Most are set-up as word problems that require reading, comprehension, math skills, and more. The "outline math problems" provide students with 3-5 choices. You simply click on the blank and the choices for the answers are provided. There are activities for primary grades (such as basic addition practice) as well as advanced activities for secondary grades (such as geometry concepts). Many of the activities require JAVA. Get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page..

tag(s): angles (88), logic (235), multiples (35)

In the Classroom

These activities are perfect for an interactive whiteboard (or projector). You could also provide a link to this website in your class newsletter or on your class web page. Many of the activities would provide excellent at-home practice and/or enrichment. Challenge your students to answer a question of the week for extra credit.
