WebMath - Learn and Understand Math Processes

WebMath - Learn and Understand Math Processes | Math | Scoop.it

WebMath has been around for over a decade and it is a site that  contains explanations and tools for learning and practicing dozens of math-related exercises, from simple functions to complex calculus.  Composed of forms to fill-in it returns analysis of a problem and in many cases provides a step-by-step solution.  This can support students in understanding math processes.

 

The only downside is that kids could potentially put in problems and get their answers (and work shown) without actually doing the legwork.

 

Parent or teacher involvement is key when kids use this site for homework.

Splash Math Apps - Leveling the Playing Field in Math

Splash Math Apps - Leveling the Playing Field in Math | Math | Scoop.it

Each app for Grades 1-5 are comprehensive with virtually infinite number of questions covering wide range of topics. All the content is aligned to common core standards.

 

These apps are used to differentiate math instruction and assigned practice. What you may like so much about this app is the variety of concepts that you are able to individualize. For example, if a student needs additional work on the concept of time, then you can setup the app to only give questions related to time. Questions first appear simple, but then become more challenging as questions are answered correctly. If you prefer, Splash Math will send you a weekly update indicating the progress of each student.

Do you want to motivate kids in math? Math Apprentice engages learners in how math is actually used in 8 different careers.

 

Here is some insight from the designer of this program that is sure to make at hit with your learners:

 

"Designed for students in grades 4+, Math Apprentice invites students to play the role of an intern at one of eight businesses that use math. Students are given an overview of the math by an animated, virtual employee. They may then choose to freely explore math concepts or solve a specific problem."

Barbara's curator insight, August 13, 2013 12:20 AM

This is a great source for ideas on real world problem solving. Grant Wiggins wrote a post last year on students ability to transfer learning and apply it to problem solving.

Specifically he says:

"Students are typically required to make four different cognitive moves to transfer learning successfully: 1) independently realize what the question is asking and think about which answers/approaches make sense here; 2) infer the most relevant prior learning from plausible alternatives; 3) try out an approach, making adjustments as needed given the context or wording; and 4) adapt their answer, perhaps, in the face of a somewhat novel or odd setting " http://grantwiggins.wordpress.com/2012/10/03/a-clarification-of-the-goal-of-transfer-and-how-it-relates-to-testing/


I think this site gives us a way in....Creating an approach to applying math learning.

An Interactive Way of Learning Math Times Tables in Many Languages

An Interactive Way of Learning Math Times Tables in Many Languages | Math | Scoop.it

Matt Bergman has shared an excellent online resource to have students learn their times table in many different languages. 

 

"In order to make connections with materials, our students often need different ways to express how they learn and understand information. Learn Your Tables International is a very unique site that helps students learn their times tables in an interactive way. Simply choose the language of your choice and begin.

 

An automated sequence of times tables will appear on your screen. Need to review your 10's, 7's, or 3's? The website will automatically go through different times tables to help you review. It also provides you with an interactive way of learning a single table (10's) or random tables."

 

Thank you Matt for sharing this site and UDL tool!
