Math journals provide advantages for students to develop a better understanding of mathematics, with teachers learning their student's views and beliefs regarding math.
Thinking Blocks is a suite of learning tools designed to help students solve math word problems accurately and efficiently. Using brightly colored blocks, students model mathematical relationships and identify known and unknown quantities. The model provides students with a powerful image that organizes information and simplifies the problem solving process. By modeling increasingly complex word problems, students develop strong reasoning skills which will facilitate the transition from arithmetic to algebra.
Six math projects that integrate real-world math problems are presented as a teaching strategy for helping students develop a greater understanding of math.
Writing in math is an excellent way to determine if students' understand or do not understand the math they are learning about.
Allowing students to explain how they solved a math problem, how they developed a formula to solve a problem, or how they applied a math concept requires critical thinking.
Get the Math is a multimedia project about algebra in the real world. See how professionals working in fashion, videogame design, and music production use algebraic thinking. Then take on interactive challenges related to those careers.
Big list of flash-based activities, games, and interactives that work well for use with an interactive whiteboard in a mathematics classroom. Includes many areas of math including geometry, numeracy, fractions, probability, and more.
Microsoft Mathematics provides a graphing calculator that plots in 2D and 3D, step-by-step equation solving, and useful tools to help students with math and science studies.
Microsoft Mathematics provides a graphing calculator that plots in 2D and 3D, step-by-step equation solving, and useful tools to help students with math and science studies. I wonder if it is as good as the graphing calculator that has been on Mac forever?
A site developed to help students achieve fact fluency. It's free, and ad free with the goal of remaining that way. It's a non-profit operating on grants and donations.
It only has memorization as a development tool at this time, but I hope that they will start adding strategy development and support.
Want to let students explore with real data then welcome to FRED® (Federal Reserve Economic Data), a database of 25,176 U.S. economic time series. With FRED® you can download data in Microsoft Excel and text formats and view charts of data series.
Students can explore data, create models & hypothesis, and test their models as the year progresses. If their models aren't working they can go back to their original data set and make changes based on what they've learned and see how those predictions work on new data. The best part is the variety of data that is available.
We plan to continually improve FRED® and encourage you to send feedback through our contact form.
