#### In the Classroom

Have students try these interactives on a math game day. To prepare for standardized testing, have students play one or two games from each strand and then have them describe what kind of problems fall under each strand. Ask students to identify strong and weak strands. Students can practice more of the activities in their weaker strands. Be sure to list this site on your class website so students can access the site both in and out of the classroom.

Syracuse University developed several self-instructional tutorials to assist students who may need review of certain topics. The self-instructional tutorials provide detailed information on functional math like ratios, proportions, fractions, graphing, and percentages. Several tests allow students to see how math plays a role in other content areas. Even though tutorials were created for postsecondary learners, most of the skills and concepts are more than appropriate for high school students.

tag(s): decimals (125), fractions (229), percent (80)

#### In the Classroom

Use this site to review foundational concepts in fractions, decimals, algebra, and graphing by introducing on an interactive whiteboard or projector. Students can then use the site independently as needed. Have students take the content area math tests to prepare them for math in other subjects like chemistry, psychology, and economics. Provide this link on your class website for students to use to practice outside of the classroom.

This site is an interactive, collaborative project that uses Google maps with you and your students to provide content. You can also see Math maps created by others. By following the directions, you can create math problems utilizing information from your own city or town. Once the math problems are posted on the map, you can tweet or blog to inform others about them. In addition to creating problems, your students can view the contributions of others and solve real world math problems. Be aware: pop-up messages do appear across the bottom of the screen. These messages are recent posts to the site. Teachers who wish to contribute must submit a Gmail address to be offered access to add their own "Maths Maps." (Note to U.S. educators and students: What you know as "math" is known as "maths" in the UK, Australia, and some other countries. The "s" is NOT a typo!)

tag(s): map skills (80), maps (292), measurement (179)

#### In the Classroom

What makes this site special is that the content comes directly from educators and students. Use the existing math problems as a challenge activity or to demonstrate how math can be used in the real world. Share the maps and math questions on your interactive whiteboard or projector. The different pin colors represent different age groups so you can choose appropriately leveled math problems. You can easily differentiate for individuals by telling them which color to explore. This site is a great way to get your students to learn more about their community. Have your students research a community spot and create a math problem about it as a class. Enter the information onto the map together or under teacher supervision for other classes all over the world to use. Allow students to explore on their own and keep a math log of all the problems they found and solved on a "trip around the world with math."

"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 (57), careers (145), equations (153), measurement (179), ratios (62), STEM (199)

#### 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.
