I will be creating a BRAND NEW heading on my Fav Websites page to include these resources (coming soon)!
1 ) Math Landing
- This website is one of those websites that has it all! It is the go-to resource
for math teachers, especially teachers who may not be strong at math (like me)!
- Teachers can search through different Professional Development articles regarding
math-related topics like understanding how learning disabilities affect math and
- There are also seven sets of Classroom Collections that feature learning tools,
videos, games and much more to assist in developing different math skills.
2 ) Sumdog
- Sumdog is a host of countless math-based online games that cover over 120
numeracy skills; everything from adding and number order to variables and
- Teachers can sign up their students as a class and they can then work towards
collective goals or compete against one another! Games can also be played
against other schools in a safe online environment.
- This was the FAVOURITE website of my Grade 5 students during my student
teaching placement at "C-School", they couldn't wait to get on it during free time.
3 ) Mudd Math Fun Facts!
- Created by the Havey Mudd College Math Department, this website features
fun and creative puzzles, riddles and images that highlight a specific math skill.
- Students can work their way through different math concepts through poker
games, sports scores, music and much more! This website could be a great
activating strategy and a good way to show students how math is important in
their daily lives.
4 ) Illustrative Mathematics
- Illustrative Mathematics features lesson activities for every grade from Kindergarten
through High School. Lesson activities may include illustrations, diagrams and
- Teachers could pull material for their own lessons or use the website as an
enrichment activity for students to work through independently (depending on their age).
5 ) Math Mistakes
- This GREAT website features a different incorrectly-solved math problem
each day. Teachers and students can go over the problem together to determine
what the student may have been thinking. Why did they solve it that way? Where
did they go wrong? What should they have done differently?
- Seeing what went wrong is a great way to teach different math concepts and this
could be a great activating strategy to do at the beginning of each class!
- Teachers can also search by concept or grade if you would like to find a specific
mistake for your class.
6 ) Geometry Daily
- Geometry Daily is a Tumblr account, operated by a graphic designer from
Germany that features a new geometric shape each day.
- Teachers could use these images when teaching angles, symmetry, perimeter,
area, rotation, reflection, translations... the options are endless!
Happy Monday everyone!
