This website, designed by the BBC for geometry students ages 16+, could be useful in lower levels of geometry instruction. The website features three main topics; The Straight Line, Vectors, and The Circle. Each of the topics includes buttons for "Revise" or "Test." The "revise" button offers a detailed review of the topic. (Revise is the word used by the British to convey the American word Review.) 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 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..

tag(s): vectors (25)

In the Classroom

Use this site in your geometry classes on an interactive whiteboard or projector. Share the "Revise" information to review for a test or quiz on the specific topic. Then have students work on computers in pairs or independently to take the online test. If computers aren't available, simply print out the online test and have students work together or independently.

Be sure to list this link on your class website, so students can use the information to review and practice at home.

This site has great simulations in Math that can be used with an Interactive Whiteboard. Math categories include "Algebra," "Data Handling," "Number," "Shape, Space, and Measure," and "General Maths." Specific topics include "Reading Scales," "Rotational Symmetry," "Shop Addition," "Prime Snakes," and "Number Cylinder." Information and ideas for use on each Interactive can be found both on the site and as an Adobe PDF download. This site requires Flash. You can get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page..

tag(s): addition (238), data (148), division (167), multiplication (220), numbers (199), prime numbers (32), subtraction (198), symmetry (54), vision (86)

In the Classroom

Show difficult-to-understand concepts on the interactive whiteboard or projector. Use these Interactives by having students predict outcomes and then carry out the experiment, such as in rolling die to determine probabilities. Students can then apply the information to a new set of problems. Use many of the interactives as a class game. Though perfect for the whiteboard, they can also be used on individual computers or as a computer learning station.

Are you looking for a new twist in your math lessons? Why not use these ready to go math mysteries! Most of the mysteries present students with a short story to read and then a quick math problem to solve at the end. These mysteries are sure to engage your students and promote creative thinking. Although the website may appear as a simple list of activities, this website is a gem. The list of mysteries includes the title, difficulty level, and skill necessary. There are three difficulty levels and eight varieties of skills (including Geometry & Spatial Relations, Fractions & Ratios, Whole Number Operations, Logical Reasoning, and others). There is also a teacher's guide that includes objectives, standards, how to use the activities, extension activities, and assessment.

tag(s): decimals (131), equations (154), fractions (236), logic (237), measurement (160), money (190), patterns (85), probability (130), ratios (54)

In the Classroom

These activities are ideal for a learning center, computer cluster, or individual computers. Why not make a list of all of the mysteries at this site. Have students record the correct answer to each of the mysteries as they complete them.

The mystery activities would also work on an interactive whiteboard or projector. Project the "Mystery of the Day" and have students keep a "Mystery Journal" with all of their answers. Review the answer (and process) together. Challenge students to write some mysteries of their own and share them on a class wiki or blog.

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 (87), median (22), numbers (199), roman numerals (9), vocabulary (325)

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.

Use Math mistakes to uncover the most common math errors and perhaps learn a little more math as well. This site has "Real Mistakes from Real Student Work" and "Math Facts Students Should Know." Browse "Common Algebra Mistakes," "Common Trigonometry Mistakes," and "Common Calculus Mistakes" by using the drop down menus along the top or through the brightly colored buttons. Each area is also broken down into smaller subject areas such as "Pre-algebra" and "Radical Expressions" with several examples given for each. Each example provides the problem and the example mistake that is made. Rolling your mouse over the problem provides a clue to the error, while rolling over the correction area provides the right answer. There are also explanations of the errors and how to avoid them. Choosing the drop down on the example page allows the student to view as a plain web page or as a pdf file. Other links include "Algebra facts," "Trigonometry facts," and "Calculus facts" which contain flash cards and learning center activities. Note: Links to Amazon for math books of interest are listed, as well as a blog link and links to apparel for sale. Steer students clear of these areas. This site requires Adobe Acrobat. You can get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page..

tag(s): equations (154)

In the Classroom

Use the flashcards and learning center information to reinforce material taught in class. Students can also look at the examples to make a class hint list of "how to avoid mistakes in our math class." Students can use this information to review incorrect homework and test questions. Have students take turns presenting the most commonly missed questions and how to find the correct answers. Have students correct their own mistakes from a test or homework assignment by using the site. Have students analyze the mistakes first before they roll over to view the hints and the corrections. If you use an interactive whiteboard, the rollovers will not appear as easily, so you can ask students to find them first.

Will The Simpsons TV show engage your students? Peruse the site to find examples of Simpson clips that can be used as a springboard for discussions or instruction of math functions. The "Guide to Mathematics and Mathematics on the Simpsons" link includes episodes from each season. Another link, "Girls just want to have Sums," has several math and cognition articles worth reading, and a text transcript of a presentation providing a class example of engaging students using the Simpsons.

Of greater use is the link to "Classroom Activity Sheets" that provides engaging ideas for using Simpsons' scenarios to solve problems in class. Note: These are thought-provoking activities that are open ended and require considerable critical thinking. Examples include: "Are the Simpsons 2D or 3D?", "2D universes," "Pi," "Blackboard Equations," and "The Simpsons Lottery." At the top of the Activity Sheet page is a link for "suggestions" for successfully implementing these activities as well as cautions for changing math gender bias in society and the classroom.

tag(s): critical thinking (110), equations (154), pi (22)

In the Classroom

Use these as a springboard for problem solving group work in class. These activities can also be used to jumpstart your own ideas for tying pop culture and other media into your classroom. The articles on gender bias and promoting math and science for girls can help promote math and science education for all students.

As the name suggests, this website offers numerous math videos. The videos answer specific questions (sent in by students). General topics include numbers and their properties, addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions, decimals, percents, geometry, measurement, data, word problems, and advanced topics. The website currently features 20-30 videos. New ones are frequently added. Students and teachers are able to send in specific math questions, but the response time is currently "on delay." The videos are mainly audio with simple illustrations. Each video is short in length and requires Flash. You can get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page..

tag(s): decimals (131), fractions (236), measurement (160), numbers (199), percent (81)

In the Classroom

The possibilities at this website abound. The website offers both audio and visual descriptions for each math topic, thus enabling you to reach your visual and audio learners. Use your interactive whiteboard or projector to share a specific topic with your students. Or make the videos a learning center for students to explore independently, and view the videos that relate to their individual needs. Be sure to provide this link for home use via your class newsletter or on your website.

This simple, "hands-on" website offers PDF files of numerous paper models of polyhedra. The files are ready to print and share with your students. The various geometric solids include platonic solids, Archimedean solids, Kepler-Poinsot polyhedra, and numerous others. The files are available in PDF format and require Adobe. Get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page..

tag(s): paper folding (5), visual thinking (10)

In the Classroom

Why not print a pattern onto cardstock or other thick paper. Then project the image (that you printed for your students) onto a projection screen or interactive whiteboard, while students work independently at their seats. Before you pass out the paper copies, have them view the projected image and predict what it will be.

These shapes can also serve as creative study aids for all subject areas, especially for students who need engaging ways to review. Have students write key terms and questions on the "faces" before assembling the figures, then "roll" them as a study game, testing each other to define or explain terms.

The collection of over fifty interactive math activities was organized by a math specialist (former 5th grade teacher). Some topics are for primary grades (such as the count aloud and sequence activities). Other topics are more complex (such as factorization and equations). Specific topics include base 10, counting, sequence, ordinals, odd and even numbers, place value, addition, equations, subtraction, integers, number line, Venn diagrams, algebra, factorization, cuisennaire rods, and others. What a fabulous resource for any elementary math class. All of the activities require FLASH. Get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page..
