Mathematical
Skill Downplayed To Get Out Of Splitting Check 
Do
two people who don't know what they're talking about, know more or less, than one person who doesn't know what he's talking about? 
Area
of a Circle Applet: A
computer animation that demonstrates where the formula for area of a
circle comes from.

Life:
A computer
simulation that explores patterns and chaos when cells on a grid follow
a set of simple rules. Depending on the number of neighboring cells,
each cell either lives or dies. A new cell is born under certain
conditions as well. Parameters can be changed and there are preloaded
patterns that can be used.


Flipping
the Classroom: I started
flipping my classroom in the fall of 2012. Organizing the class using
this approach allows me to differentiate instruction and it gives
students more opportunities to collaborate with classmates and engage
in problem solving activities. 
Pearson
Online Learning: Online
Learning has the benefits of instant feedback and easy access to
relevent videos, notes, definitions, and other resources. 

Inquiry
Based Learning: A studentcentered
method of teaching Mathematics. I was introduced to IBL when I was a
math student in Dr. Margaret Morrow's class at Plattsburgh State. I
consider that semester to be a major turning point in my own
educational career and it altered my vision of effective instruction. 
Purple Math: An excellent resource to brush up on Algebra. The lessons are straightforward and are organized by topic. There are also links to other relevant lessons and prerequisite skills.  
Monty Hall Problem: This link provides an introduction to a famous mathematical paradox. When we think that a solution to a problem is obvious or trivial, but in fact the opposite is true, we call this phenomenon a mathematical paradox. Mathematical paradoxes defy our intuition and can lead to a deeper understanding of our world. Enjoy! 
National Library of Virtual Manipulatives: The National Library of Virtual Manipulatives (NLVM) is an NSF supported project that began in 1999 to develop a library of uniquely interactive, webbased virtual manipulatives or concept tutorials, mostly in the form of Java applets, for mathematics instruction (K12 emphasis). The project includes dissemination and extensive internal and external evaluation. 

Optical Illusions: An interesting site dedicated to optical illusions and visual phenomena.  The Math Forum at Drexel: A great collection of math resources!  
Frogger: Frogger is an arcade game introduced in 1981. The object of Frogger is to guide frogs to their homes one by one. To do this, each frog must avoid cars while crossing a busy road and navigate a river full of hazards. Use the keyboard arrow keys to guide the frog along. 
Sudoku: Try out this classic puzzle. There is a tutorial on this site that will help you get started. Try to develope your own strategies!
