21st Century Skills Roadmap- Math



Interactive Whiteboards (or projected for the class)


  • Interactive Games- very colorful activities to help teach and practice geometry, fractions, decimals, patterns, and more. Take some time to play around and think about how you could use these in your class! http://www.oswego.org/staff/cchamber/techno/games.htm
  • More Interactives- some of the listed activities overlap with sites above, but there are new ones as well- seems good for primary
  • Virtual Spinner- customize this spinner to meet your needs for games or probability
There are great resources for Math at Ed1Stop!
  • Discovery Streaming and Learn 360- videos about math procedures and topics
  • Pokeman Learning League- videos and activities to help teach math skills, including angles, order of operations, and more 
  • Teacher Cadre Projects- interactive projects created by CCC teachers
Web tools
  • Thinkfinity.org- a searchable database of lessons and other resources from ArtsEdge, EdSitement, NCTM Illuminations, Literacy Network, ReadWriteThink, the Smithsonian, and more partners. 
  • Interactives and lessons organized by grade level and topic. Not always the most exciting lessons, but seem pretty good for direct instruction support. http://www.aaamath.com/
  • Ask Dr. Math- check out questions and answers related to some odd math topics


TeacherTube- videos that you can download, created by teachers and students; SCREEN BEFORE USING! http://teachertube.com/
Blogs and Wikis






Sites with Math PowerPoints




Math Jeopardy- http://www.hardin.k12.ky.us/res_techn/sbjarea/math/MATHJeopardy.htm


Student-created math word problems- http://classroom.jc-schools.net/mather/ppt.html

(They have spelling and grammar mistakes, but can serve as a model for how to use these.)

  • Inspiration and Kidspiration have templates for math activities.
  • Kidspiration3 has added many new math tools that could be used on an interactive whiteboard or as a teaching tool with an LCD projector. I especially like the fraction tiles.
  • InspireData has data files that you can use with students to work on data analysis


Document Camera
The common threads among most discussions of using the document camera in math are a) use it to demonstrate with manipulatives, and b) use it to show how to solve problems. Using it with manipulatives seems like a wise way to take advantage of the technology.
