The HOT Math! website is a resource website for maths teachers. The site presents ideas for hands-on tasks in the mathematics classroom (approx grade 8). "Learning by doing" gives added value to our teaching. Students are motivated by hands-on tasks for various reasons. Hands-on tasks offer a change from the daily maths class work. They connect our subject to daily life, to other school subjects and to constructive discovering activities.

My user comments apply to the English Version at http://projects.edte.utwente.nl/hotmath/home.htm. As the author states, "No lesson plans are offered, as each idea will need adaptation to class level." So the user would need to develop lesson plans for the learning objects on this site.


I spent approximately 1 hour reviewing the material at this site. I did not use it in class.


Quality of Content


On the website it states that in December 2000, this site was proclaimed Web Byte of the Month by the NCTM. At the time of this user's reading, this site had some spelling errors (Backgrounds section).


Potential Effectiveness


The planned learning experiences could be valuable. For example: Task: Folding + 1 cut. The animated graphics make the idea come alive, but the graphics go fast, without pausing, so the graphics don't necessarily help. There are some good ideas, such as trial version, among the suggestions for "Making worksheets." I didn't see any comment about creating a rubric that assesses students' understanding the concept.


The other tasks look stimulating.


The "Backgrounds" section is really an essay. It offers a nice touch, but no substantive information is provided in that section.


This item will be reviewed by the Teacher Education Editorial Board." 7

Technical Remarks:

Ease of Use


The site is easy to follow. It would be easy for first time users.
