A Maths Dictionary for Kids is a fantastic animated, interactive online math dictionary for students which explains over 600 common mathematical terms and math words in simple language. Enter the site using the link on the home page and choose (or browse) math terms. Math terms come to life with a click of the mouse! Virtually all terms have an animated or interactive component - for example, choose quadrilateral to view a definition along with an image of a quadrilateral, the next button changes the quadrilateral to a square along with the new definition, choose next again to see the square change to a rhombus, and so on. Virtually all standard math terms are included so users are likely to find anything they want along with some new terms! A link is included at the bottom of each section to print each definition easily.

Another wonderful portion of the site is a new section titled Math Charts. Search this portion by choosing from areas such as numbers, operations, decimals, or much more then choose one of the sub-topics. Each chart includes a visual description of the topic and is specifically created to be printed for classroom use, choose the print button at the bottom of the page and the content will enlarge to fill the most it can in whatever size paper is chosen. Be sure not to miss the blackline masters located at the bottom of this section that contain many printables for classroom use such as fraction strips, hundreds charts, and much more.

tag(s): addition (251), charts and graphs (195), data (148), decimals (133), division (172), fractions (239), measurement (159), money (193), multiplication (227), order of operations (33), percent (82), ratios (53), subtraction (208), time (144)

In the Classroom

The math charts are a wonderful resource for classroom bulletin boards, wall decorations, and more - simply laminate for increased durability. Print onto standard sized paper for use in math notebooks or journals. Create a scavenger hunt for students to perform to find words in the math dictionary, have students write definitions and illustrations in math notebooks. View the site using your interactive whiteboard when discussing, introducing, or reviewing math concepts. Share this site through your classroom website or newsletter for reference at home. Share with ESL/ELL and Special Education teachers as a resource to use with students.

Improve your students' understanding of geometric concepts with this outstanding site that strengthens spatial skills. Start by perusing the excellent background information for teachers that highlights the importance of geometry in math education, then investigate the collection of interactive classroom activities designed to provide concrete practice with abstract concepts. The first set of activities is concerned with identifying properties of shapes; the second focuses on visualizing how objects will look when moved. Check out the overviews for each activity which describe the rationale and connection to NCTM Standards.

tag(s): geometric shapes (163), measurement (159), space (205), symmetry (55)

In the Classroom

Share the one or more of the interactive activities with your interactive whiteboard or projector. Then set up a computer station for students to rotate through and practice the activities on their own.

This site allows you to create and print different types of graph paper in a PDF format. The site is easy to use and takes you through each step needed. First choose the type of graph paper from the eight different offerings including Cartesian (the most popular) and hexagonal. Next choose paper size, measuring units (inches or millimeters), then choose the paper created from the list offered. Just print after the graph paper is created.
This site includes advertising.

tag(s): charts and graphs (195)

In the Classroom

Save the site as a link for quick printing of graph paper when needed. Provide the link to students and parents to use at home when graph paper is needed. Quickly print graphs onto transparency film to use on overhead projectors.

This applet is perfect for practicing finding the area and perimeter of regular and irregular shapes. After a shape is shown, there are boxes to input the answer to the area and perimeter of the provided shape. Options are also provided to adjust the size of shapes, to allow only rectangular shapes, and to allow scoring. The learner portion of the site provides an overview of area and perimeter. Be sure to check out the instructor section for links to standards, information for classroom use, standards addressed, and links to similar resources. There is also a printable exploration questions worksheet that can be used in the classroom.

tag(s): area (66), geometric shapes (163), perimeter (32)

In the Classroom

Introduce this site on your interactive whiteboard or projector. Then have students complete the exploration questions either on their own or with a partner. After exploring the site, have students create their own shapes for other students to solve for area and perimeter. Ask students to write in their math journals about how the different shapes create differences in area and perimeter. Create a link on your classroom website or blog for students to practice at home.
