Math Websites & apps for Ipad
These are some of the websites (top webmix) and Ipad apps (bottom webmix) we use for math. Just click on a logo!! Many have the passwords on the icon so please jot them down before you click the link as the website will open directly and you will no longer see the screen with the password information. :) Be sure to scroll across and up and down to view the entire symbaloo webmix and check back often as I update continually.
Here is a mix of apps for the Ipad that help students practice Math skills! >
I am including a video here that demonstrates SUBTRACTION on an OPEN NUMBER LINE strategy. We use this as a way to check and model out work. We will be working on open number lines often in our Math. This might help clarify how it works for some parents and families.
We have been doing some Fun Friday Math activities and wanted to share them!
We wanted a Fun Friday Flashback Math activity and I had some bags of marshmallows left over......then looked in my drawer and saw graham crackers when it hit me! BAM! Why not have the kids use them to find area and perimeter? I remember seeing a cute pin on pinterest of area and perimeter with cheez-its......and we will do that lesson too, but this was on the fly--and fit in perfectly with our flashback on area/perimeter! The kids first did Math Talks with their partners and made predictions, then they used the marshmallows to find the area and perimeter of the graham crackers. Next they did FRACTIONAL parts of the graham cracker (which we identified was already pre-cut into fourths :) so that meant we had to find the area and perimeter of 1/4 of the graham cracker too. It was so interesting to see how students talked through their thinking with the Math Talks. One student discovered a faster way to find perimeter and we had her share her thinking with the document camera for the whole class. (It was using one side's length to figure out the other side's length and not having to actually measure around the entire object!) This was a natural progression for learning perimeter and also applying what we know about shapes so I was super thrilled that she shared her thinking for the class! Here's a few pics. I've already got plans for doing another flashback with measurement, line plots and data using .......gummy worms!!! Now to get the materials!
Fun Friday Flashback Math Activity:
Measurement and Data
Here's a pic of our Measurement and Data activity. I bought some bags of gummy worms and cut them into various lengths to the nearest 1/4 inch (yes, that was a fun Thursday night activity for me!) The students then predicted the lengths, measured and recorded the lengths (some even went as far as to name their worms ;)
The last step was to create a line plot of their data. They did a great job on this!
