Math It Up: Online Math Resources (Part 4)

Well it's time to wrap things up in the "Math It Up" post series.  To start today's post let's check out a few cool websites that could be very helpful to your students.  The first is Math Maps.  For all of you Google Earth users, this is a great site to check out!  This site discusses how to use Google Earth to give math lessons while virtually exploring the world!

Math Open Reference is another great site to check out.  This site provides a great resource for those learning/teaching geometry.  This site describes itself as "A free interactive math textbook on the web. Initially covering high-school geometry."  It provides lots of great lessons and ideas!

While this next site, Conceptua Math, provides an excellent online math curriculum with a pricing plan, it does provide some excellent FREE with registration fraction tools that would be remiss not to mention.  Check them out here.

Math Live is a very fun way to learn mathematical concepts.  It takes math concepts and places them in a "TV episode" format.  This is not only entertaining for the student but each concept is explained in a real-world application.  The site also provides worksheets, teacher notes, parent notes and assessment!   

If you are looking for further ideas and resources to add to your mathematical arsenal perhaps you should get plugged into resources like Plus Magazine and MathAndMultimedia for ideas and links to many more great resources! 

FInally, to close things out, check out these following online tools that you can give your students access to if they do not have access to the proper calculating or graphing tools.  You could also use this easily to work problems via your projector or interactive white board!  Check them out below!

Please let us know what you think of the resources we've mentioned or if you have more great math resources to share.  Enjoy and go Math It Up!
