The Mathematics Assessment Project aims to bring life to the Common Core Standards by offering assessments for use in middle school and high school classrooms. Assessments are both summative tests or tasks and classroom performance based. Classroom research and feedback led to the development of all tasks. Choose from complete lessons including Common Core standards goals, print-outs as needed, and directions. Also included are tasks separated by middle school or high school level and high school tests for college readiness. There is an excellent professional development portion on the site for incorporating activity based learning in classrooms along with videos, session guides, and handouts. Download modules as needed for offline use. Find a step by step overview of how to use the site at the instructions tab at the top of each page.

tag(s): angles (88), area (66), assessment (100), charts and graphs (195), decimals (133), equations (155), estimation (46), measurement (159), negative numbers (22), percent (82), pythagorean theorem (35)

In the Classroom

Bookmark and save this site as a resource for classroom activities and assessments relating to Common Core standards. Share this site with others in your department as a resource for developing and implementing activity based lessons. View videos as part of your (and your department's) professional development sessions. This is an excellent site for any Math department head or curriculum leader to use when leading fellow teachers.

Find videos recorded by professional educators. These are not just the humdrum lecture type videos you might expect. These are dynamic speakers, energized by their desire to share what they've learned and know. The videos are even more appealing because of the professional animators who worked in the background (with the educators) to get the message across to the audience. You can search these videos by "Series" or by "Subject." Every video has a Quick Quiz with basic comprehension questions, and real time answers. If you get an answer wrong, you will receive a video hint to help you get it correct. Every video has a "Think" section with open ended questions. Every video has a Dig Deeper section with additional resources for exploring the topic. You can take one of these videos, a video from YouTube, or any other video with a URL and "flip" them to make them your own. You can change the title, put in instructions, discard or keep the questions, create your own questions. In other words, you can make the video your own, to suit your needs. Once you save the video it will have a unique URL so you can track the progress and participation of anyone using it. Don't miss such clever offerings as David Hunter's video about the importance of geography concepts in deciding "How do you decide where to go in a zombie apocalypse?" Ted-Ed is only part of the TED offerings. View the full TED site reviewed here.

tag(s): business (58), design (83), literature (275), psychology (64), religions (61), video (254)

In the Classroom

Choose a video or create your own videos for students to use for review. After students view a video that has the questions, show one that doesn't, and have students generate questions for it. Assign videos for students to view at home or in the computer lab. Use them as a springboard for engaging writing prompts or to spark a discussion connected with a unit of study. Challenge students to do a compare/contrast activity using an online Venn Diagram tool reviewed here. Most of the videos are less than twenty minutes, which makes it realistic to use them in a one-period class lesson.

Show a video or two with your class and discuss the set up of the lesson. Discuss the difference between basic comprehension questions and open-ended questions. Show your students an inspirational video or two from TED reviewed here. As a class, pick out eight or ten of the TED videos and allow students to sign up to work on one of the videos. Have cooperative learning groups develop a TED Ed video lesson. You will need to proofread all work using a word processor, before allowing students to upload their questions on TED Ed.

Comments

This is the go-to site for Promethean flipchart downloads. Most files were created by teachers. The only downside is that the files are hit-or-miss. There are many gems, but you might have to browse some not-so-great files to find them. Tim, , Grades: 0 - 6

Rhymenlearn offers twenty-five "squeaky clean" math and science rap videos about a variety of topics. They are constantly adding to this site, so you will probably find even more than twenty-five! Sort by math or science using the tabs at the top. Subtitles are given along with the YouTube video. These videos are perfect for the classroom. While seeing a Heart Rap or Pi Rap may make you giggle, many learn best from hearing words to music. These are simple to understand and include many words and diagrams.You can also sign up for more free math and science raps with your email (no SPAM). YouTube videos use Flash. If your school blocks YouTube, then they may not be viewable. You could always view the videos 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.

Are you interested in numbers? This site has a variety of videos about math theories that are at the forefront of research. Easy, understandable language presents each topic, and this is an entertaining way for anyone to learn fascinating facts about numbers. The Numberphile covers a very broad scope of topics such as Why do people hate mathematics, AMAZING Dice Rolls, and Sounds of PI. Videos vary in length, although most remain well under 15 minutes. Even those who believe they are not good at math will like learning interesting facts about numbers. The site is not in Flash, but all the videos are. If your district blocks YouTube, they may not be viewable. You could always view the videos at home and bring them to class "on a stick" to share.

Choose a video about an interesting number fact that can be used to hook students into a particular lesson or unit. Use the videos to show the fascinating side of mathematics. For example, 666 and its peculiarity in mathematics would be interesting to students. Make a math enrichment center for your gifted students or "hook" math-haters (or girls) by letting them select and critique their own video choice from this site. Embed a video on your class wiki and have students use the discussion tab to comment on what they like about it or were surprised to learn. FLIP your classroom and have students view the videos at home to discuss the next day in class. (This is a great option if YouTube is blocked in your school.) Be sure to provide this link on your class website for students (and their families) to access at home. Consider having students make their own advertising videos about their favorite or "lucky" number using a tool such as and share them on a site such as TeacherTube reviewed here.

This site from Wolfram Alpha and Mathematica offers dynamic tools and materials for learning math topics and MUCH more. The tool has an interactive textbook and lesson plans aligned to the Common Core standards. Check out the supplemental materials that include demonstrations and videos. Currently the portal contains FULL materials for Algebra and some material for Calculus. Coming soon is Pre-Calculus, along with additional features like problem generators. The interactive Algebra textbook uses the CK-12 Flexbook, Wolfram|Alpha widgets and links, and demonstrations created in Mathematica. You must set up a free account to see all that is available. Most content requires the free CDF player software, available for download.

tag(s): ebooks (42), problem solving (272)

In the Classroom

This is an excellent resource for math teachers and students alike. Use the variety of lessons, links, and demonstrations to help students in your class. Set up a computer in your class -- or the computer lab -- with the like problem generator so students who are struggling with a particular concept can practice.

Comments

I like this because Wolfram Alpha and Mathematica are used in the real world for a students future career. It exposes them to tools they can use when they are older. They will be more advanced because they have been using them as students. Thank you, Heather Heather, CA, Grades: 9 - 12
