Last month, I posted a list of 5 Free Digital Resources for Math Teachers. Since then, I have stumbled upon several more to add to the list. Let’s take a look at five more great resources to teach match in the digital classroom!
1. Gooru is a search engine with more than 2,600 standards-aligned resources, called study guides, in 5th-12th grade math and science. Composed of free open educational resources (OERs), the collection includes digital textbooks, animations, instructor videos and more. Gooru also will adapt to students’ learning needs by looking at topics studied and self-assessments to suggest resources that will help students master concepts.
2. Math Chimp is a collection of free online math games organized by the Common Core State Standards for 1st – 8th grade. You can search by the CCSS to see a list of appropriate digital resources, which includes a description and rating to help you determine which ones are best for your students.
3. WowMath.org – For high school math teachers and students, WowMath.org contains over 600 tutorials on algebra and calculus created by Brad Robb, a high school math teacher in California. You can also find the videos on his YouTube channel.
4. Brightstorm contains over 2,000 free videos from math teachers explains difficult concepts and working out sample problems. Topics include algebra, geometry, trigonometry, precalculus, and calculus. They also have the Brightstorm Math Homework Checker for students to check answers and a Questions and Answers Forum to communicate with others for help with math.
5. Interactivate is a site containing a variety of interactive, Java-based virtual math activities and lesson plans for students and teachers in grades 3-12. You can search through the activities by subject, topic, audience, or resource type, or narrow down by standards for several states or the Common Core. For iPad users, they have also created an app called Math Flyer.
