This flexible, interactive Flash applet allows students to explore number patterns and to develop number sense and fluency with addition, subtraction, and multiplication. The student or teacher enters a starting number and a step increment. Both values may be up to 4 digits and either positive or negative. The user then mentally carries out the sequence and enters the resulting 10th and 11th terms. The first 9 terms are color-coded in groups of 3 and may be shown or hidden one group at a time. Users have the option of hiding or showing the starting number and/or the increment.

Rating
0.0 stars

This math app intended for upper elementary students using the addition and subtraction level and middle school students using all four operations helps players practice their order of operations. This interactive game encourages students to use higher order thinking to use the five numbers and given operations to solve the "target" number by working backwards given the answer but not the equation. The best feature about this math game is that teachers are able to receive immediate feedback of their students’ progress through email. Students do not have to provide an email address in order to play.

This 440-page report explores how students in pre-K through grade 8 learn mathematics, with a focus on number and operations, and recommends how teaching, curricula, and teacher education should change to improve mathematics learning. (A 39-page summary, Helping Children Learn Mathematics, is catalogued separately.) The authors identify five interdependent components of mathematical proficiency and describe how students develop this proficiency. The report presents a portrait of mathematics learning: research findings on what children know about numbers before they arrive in pre-K and the implications for instruction; details on the processes by which students acquire mathematical proficiency; what is known from research about teaching for mathematics proficiency and developing proficiency in teaching. Visitors to this website may read the full text online, download a copy (pdf), or purchase a hard copy.

Algebra Balance Scales

Rating
0.0 stars

This virtual manipulative allows a teacher or student to represent a linear equation and solve it through the use of a balance beam. Unit blocks (representing 1s) and x-boxes (representing the unknown), are placed on the pans of a balance beam. Once the beam balances to represent the given linear equation, the learner can choose to perform any arithmetic operation to both sides of the equation keeping the beam balanced. The goal, of course, is to get a single X-box on one side, with however many unit blocks needed for balance thus giving the value of x. There is also the option of creating your own equations to solve.

This interactive Wolfram Demonstration helps students visualize the relationship between multiplication and the area of a rectangle. On a 10x10 multiplication table, with 1 in the lower left and 100 in the upper right, users adjust the size of a rectangle by dragging a vertex or sliders, or by choosing a product from a pulldown list. The resulting rectangle highlights the width, height and area (factors and product) as well as other equivalent areas (products) on the board, illustrating commutativity and multiple factor pairs. Wolfram CDF Player, a free download, is required to view this resource.

This brief article describes how one elementary school uses visual arts, dance, drama, or music to teach other subjects like mathematics, social studies, language arts, and science. Students learn geometry kinesthetically with flexible bands called “stretchies.” The integrated activities not only help students retain knowledge but also teach them to work together cooperatively. Guided by ASU Public Events and the Peoria Unified School District Arts Education Department, this model was adapted from the Changing Education Through the Arts (CETA) model developed by the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington D.C. and Partners in Education Department.

This problem, from the collection of Aunty Mathilda challenges, promotes algebraic thinking and problem solving strategies. When Mathilda was ten years old her rich aunties wanted to give her a gift of money for her birthday but she must first decide if she would rather have one more silver dollar then she received last year on her birthday or twice as many dimes then she received last year. Aunty Mathilda's nephew believes she made the wrong decision. Included are links to an easier challenge and to a harder one, and additional background support: alignment to the CCSS standards, explanations, literature connections and extensions regarding the challenge.
