Math-Facts and Problem Solving

This week ’ s clicks are all about Math. If you find something in your search for resources, please let me know so that the resource can be shared with others. I hope you are able to find something in here you can use in your classrooms.

1. NOYCE Foundation – This site focuses on Math and Science. The link will take you to a long list of activities at
many different levels. The main focus is Problem Solving. Some are simple questions that could be used as warm-ups and others could be used as questions to provide more practice for students. You might also want to make some of these a “ Problem of the Week ” and award a prize for all those students who get it correct.

2. – Here is a great site to practice basic math facts and have fun.

3. – This site has many different Math activities with topics like money, geometry, and basic facts. It
also is organized by grade levels.

4. – This site is good for Smartboard or mimeo activities and is divided into subjects and
grade levels. The link will take you to the math portion of the site but many other subjects are available.

5. Thinking – This site has instructional videos and independent practice that can be tracked. Certificates
can also be printed for levels that have been completed. It was designed for homeschooling or classroom use. The main topics it covers is addition, multiplication, fractions, and ratios. There is a modeling tool that students can use to model problems from their homework.

6. BONUS:– Here is a site that is great for a rainy Saturday or a holiday when you need
something to do. There is a potpourri of wonderful activities and interesting stuff but the link takes you to the problem solving page. This might be a good site to have to give those kids who are done with everything and tell them to “ Explore this site and let me know what you found.”

I hope you can find something you can use. If you do, please make a comment.
