Do you want to learn math?

 

Nearly every math concept has explanations written out, one or two short video tutorials, and interactive applets (written with GeoGebra). Use this site as your math resource to help you learn math.

 

"Here's how to use this site:

> Choose a math topic from the list on the left.
> Click the specific math concept you are looking for or just browse through the "book".
> Read the examples and then watch the math video tutorial.
> Play with the interactive math applet to further deepen your understanding."

 

Why UDL?:  In general it offers multiple means of representation and engagement.

From CAST's UDL Spotlight, Shodor Interactivate is featured.  Learn how this virtual manipulative tool for math supports these two UDL principles:  multiple means of representation and multiple means of action and engagement.

 

"The Interactivate website has over 150 java-based interactive tools and activities (aka, applets) categorized by topic, that allow students to explore mathematics. It’s a free (donations accepted) resource developed and maintained by Shodor Educational Foundation and it’s as useful for teachers as it is engaging for students. All the tools and activities have explanations of how to use them in the classroom and most are aligned with common math texts. All are aligned to the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) standards."
