4434Cool Math
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=450992
Designed to help frustrated students who hate math and students who love math. This resource has lessons, games, applets, dictionaries, and so much more to help students in pre-algebra to calculus learn math in a fun and engaging way.Decimal Place Value StAIR
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=554351
This is a stand-alone instructional resource for use in an elementary classroom (grades 3-5). It reviews decimal and whole number place value. The presentation requires input from the learner and provides feedbak based on this input.Double Bar Graph elementary lesson and activity
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=641835
This is an activity to teach third-fifth grade students learn how to conduct a survey and create a double bar graph on their own. They will also input their information into a computer program that will generate a graph. They will use a tally table for their survey.GeoGebra
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=436264
Algebra and Geometry shape and graph maker. Multi-use.Description by developer:GeoGebra is dynamic mathematics software for all levels of education that joins arithmetic, geometry, algebra and calculus. It offers multiple representations of objects in its graphics, algebra, and spreadsheet views that are all dynamically linked. Grid and Percent It
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=449423
In this lesson, students use a 10 × 10 grid as a model for solving various types of percent problems. This model offers a means of representing the given information as well as suggesting different approaches for finding a solution. This lesson is adapted from "A Conceptual Model for Solving Percent Problems," which originally appeared in Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, Vol. 1, No. 1 (April 1994), pp. 20-25.Math 6 Spy Guys
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=450660
Interactive lessons that cover multiple Grade 6 standards from the Mathematics Framework for California Public Schools.Numbers and Operation: Place Value lesson for Grade 3
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=673565
Students recognize patterns in place-value, show the standard form of a 5-digit number, write the number in expanded form and word form, and apply their knowledge and evaluated for accuracy using individual white boards.Quadratic Transformer
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=418382
This Java applet demonstrates visually how changing the coefficients in a quadratic function changes the graph, and shows the relationship between roots and x-intercepts. An included activity handout guides students to develop rules for how changes to the quadratic and constant coefficients of a quadratic function change its graph, and to briefly explore the "polynomial," "root" and "vertex" forms of a quadratic function. Solving Multi-Step Equations StAIR
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=705961
Stand Alone Instructional Resource for Algebra 1 on Solving Multi-Step Equations.The FunWorks: Career Resources
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=405844
This website is great for inspiring our youth to explore various careers. The site offers a fun formula for exploring careers depending upon one's interest. It is cleverly divided into "interest" categories such as; music, medicine, law, technology, art / design, sports, exploration, science and math. The goal is for students to explore different areas while relating them to what they enjoy. Students will find many games and job descriptions and might be cleverly surprised to find careers that they might have not known existed. It is enormously helpful for planting a seed on the importance of college in respect to career choices. What a great tool for getting students to start thinking about how they can use their talents and interests professionally!
