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 student-centered 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 straight-forward 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, web-based virtual manipulatives or concept tutorials, mostly in the form of Java applets, for mathematics instruction (K-12 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!
