  4Teachers –                           4Teachers.org works to help you integrate technology into your
http://www.4teachers.org/              classroom by offering FREE online tools and resources. This site helps
                                       teachers locate and create ready-to-use Web lessons, quizzes, rubrics and
                                       classroom calendars. There are also tools for student use. Discover
                                       valuable professional development resources addressing issues such as
                                       equity, ELL, technology planning and at-risk or special-needs students.

                                       COMMENTS: Meteor Multiplication was pretty interesting and would
                                       be a good way to get students motivated to learn multiplication skills.
                                       Listed under ARCADEMIC SKILL BUILDERS: Online educational
                                       games that offer a powerful approach to learning basic math, language
                                       arts, and vocabulary and thinking skills.
                                       Currently in beta testing, you and your students have free access to play
                                       the games online. Just give us your feedback!

RubiStar –                             This site can be used to create rubrics. There is also a link from

The Math Forum –                       The Math Forum Is...
http://mathforum.org/                  ... the leading online resource for improving math learning, teaching, and
                                       communication since 1992.
                                       _We are teachers, mathematicians, researchers, students, and parents
                                       using the power of the Web to learn math and improve math education.
                                       _We offer a wealth of problems and puzzles; online mentoring; research;
                                       team problem solving; collaborations; and professional development.
                                       Students have fun and learn a lot. Educators share ideas and acquire new
                                       COMMENTS: I have personally used the Problems of the Week (POWs)
                                       section with my students. You must have a subscription, reasonably
                                       priced, but lots of hard work (or I made it hard work.)

                                       I like that I am responding to student work with a standard 4,3,2,1 scale
                                       like what students will find on the WASL. The responses are also typed,
                                       so they are easy to read.

Webquests –                            A Web Quest is an inquiry-oriented activity in which most or all of the
http://webquest.sdsu.edu/              information used by learners is drawn from the Web. WebQuests are
                                       designed to use learners' time well, to focus on using information rather
                                       than looking for it, and to support learners' thinking at the levels of
                                       analysis, synthesis and evaluation. The model was developed in early
                                       1995 at San Diego State University by Bernie Dodge with Tom March,
                                       and was outlined then in Some Thoughts About WebQuests.

Sunburst Technology –                  Green Globs – Students explore the relationship between equations and
http://store.sunburst.com/             their graphs in this hands-on learning environment in which they
                                       investigate, manipulate, and understand linear and quadratic
                                       graphs. Software has a variety of levels from ‘write the equation of the
                                       graph shown’ to ‘write an equation so that you hit more green globs for
                                       more points with one graph.’
                                       COMMENTS: Usually fairly inexpensive for 10 computer licenses.

Geometer’s Sketchpad –                 Sketchpad is a dynamic construction and exploration tool that enables
Key Curriculum Press                   students to explore and understand mathematics in ways that are simply
http://www.keypress.com/i              not possible with traditional tools—or with other mathematics software
ndex.html                              programs. With a scope that spans the mathematics curriculum from
                                       middle school to college, The Geometer’s Sketchpad® brings a powerful
                                       dimension to the study of mathematics.

Calculators –                          Lower level math classes. Students still need to be taught how to use the

Graphing Calculators –                 Great for explorations at any level, including lower level. Usually
                                       required at the Algebra 2 or Algebra 3-4 or Integrated 3 level. Can
                                       explore math in greater depth.
