The single most important feature of the internet is the ability to dig deeper. And with that being said I found some Math web sites that need to be shared (sorry Khan Academy, you’re not included with this group). I was
trolling strolling around the old internet and came across links, suggestions, and more.
- Paul’s Online Math Notes: From his site: “The intent of this site is to provide a complete set of free online (and downloadable) notes and/or tutorials for classes that I teach at Lamar University. I’ve tried to write the notes/tutorials in such a way that they should be accessible to anyone wanting to learn the subject regardless of whether you are in my classes or not.”
- Wolfram Math Worlds: From the Site: “is the web’s most extensive mathematical resource, provided as a free service to the world’s mathematics and internet communities as part of a commitment to education and educational outreach by Wolfram Research, makers of Mathematica.”
- Kathy Schrok’s Guide for Educators: Math. A collection of resources and links in conjunction with Discovery Education.
- National Library of Virtual Manipulatives. From the Site, “Learning and understanding mathematics, at every level, requires student engagement. Mathematics is not, as has been said, a spectator sport. Too much of current instruction fails to actively involve students. One way to address the problem is through the use of manipulatives, physical objects that help students visualize relationships and applications. We can now use computers to create virtual learning environments to address the same goals.”
- PatrickJMT. Video Math tutorials. And lots of them. And at all ages.
- AAAMath. From the site: “AAA Math features a comprehensive set of interactive arithmetic lessons. Unlimited practice is available on each topic which allows thorough mastery of the concepts. A wide range of lessons (Kindergarten through Eighth grade level) enables learning or review to occur at each individual’s current level. The AAAMath.com site contains thousands of pages of Math Lessons.”
If all of these fail just go find a really good math teacher. There’s a ton out there.
If you’ve got sites you use or swear-by let me know and I’ll update this post with them.The photo is a still-shot from A Serious Man.
