I saw some really great stuff today at ISTE (the International Society for Technology in Education). Some highlights:
www.educationcity.com – great website teaching subjects through cartoons…math stuff looks great…school site licenses are very affordable and they give free trials…
www.professorgarfield.org – Check out the Knowledge Box section….some math…all free…and site is expanding
www.cyberchase.com….pbs stuff for free and they said they are currently in development of much more math stuff
www.bizworld.org I also saw this great program by a nonprofit group that teaches math through having children create real businesses on campus…even 3-5th graders (bracelet and movie businesses)….they supply everything in a kit for $45….
http://mathworld.wolfram.com/ and http://www.wolframalpha.com/ …this is a good site to generate interesting numbers in real life… you enter a date, a name, anything and the numbers come up for that topic
