A Little Help With Math
Math is one of those subjects that I am always trying to make more 'fun'. Perhaps it stems from my deep, abiding hatred of math. Okay, maybe not hatred. Loathing? Anyway, as kid I had terrible math anxiety.
Here are some links I have come across that have made math a little more fun.
Xtra Math is a free website that aids in mathmatical fluency. My daughter is in the 4th grade and honestly needs a little extra practice where math is concerned. My son grasps math well, but improving speed is always a good thing...right? Both children have enjoyed to speed drills and the 'race the teacher' games on this site.
MathMagician ( http://www.oswego.org/ocsd-web/games/Mathmagician/mathsmulti.html ) helps with multiplication tables.
Math Playground ( http://www.mathplayground.com/ ) has games that extend into middle school. It includes logic problems and word problems and algebra, oh my!
Edheads ( http://edheads.org/index.shtml ) focuses on science, math and logic. Good stuff.
Manga High ( http://www.mangahigh.com/en_us/games/ )
Number Nut ( http://www.numbernut.com/ )
Arcademics ( http://www.arcademicskillbuilders.com/ )
These 'round out' the list.
How about you? Are there any cool online math sites that you use for your students?
