The lessons include interactive activities to practice concepts. Students can shoot fruit, pop balloons, and even play math man (the math version of pac man!). Fractions, place value, money, and basic operations are some of the areas that are covered. Check it out at " --Shannon Jakeman , "Online math games, like the ones that you'll find for free at Sheppard Software, provide a valuable opportunity for children to learn a great deal while they're having fun. It can be very difficult for parents to find productive and worthwhile activities for children on the Internet; however fun online math games do offer a wonderful alternative.

This free section of Sheppard Software was written for children. From the main page parents or children will find a simple and easy to navigate menu featuring the different levels of math games and the various math concepts that are available.

This versatile collection can be taught in sequence or used individually as needed to supplement any curriculum. Hands-on explorations are easily adapted to fit changing classroom situations, diverse student backgrounds, and various grade levels. Each unit contains four to twelve activities that use models, manipulatives, sketches, and diagrams to develop and reinforce mathematical concepts and processes. See also Math and the Mind's Eye, Secondary. For more information about manipulatives and optional items see Component Detail Reference Chart.

Communicating in the Math Classroom: Part 1 Comments (0)By Shelby Strong, posted July 4, 2016 – Walk down the halls of most schools, and you’ll no doubt hear students talking.


In English language arts, or ELA, classrooms, students may be heard discussing an author’s intent or characterization. In social studies classrooms, there may be debate on events that lead to war or the resulting fallout. During science class, students collaborate in labs and compare their results. Knowledge is acquired through active participation in classroom discussions.

During this time, I have learned not only a great amount of the history of mathematics, but also have gained experience on how to integrate math history ideas into my normal teaching of mathematics. In an attempt to share some of this gained knowledge and experiences, I now announce the release of a new website Teaching Mathematics History.

It is a collection of materials directed at either teaching a math history class or including math history ideas in other math courses.

CME Project

The CME Project, developed by EDC’s Center for Mathematics Education and published by Pearson, is a coherent, four-year, NSF-funded high school mathematics program designed around how knowledge is organized and generated within mathematics: the themes of algebra, geometry, and analysis. The CME Project sees these branches of mathematics not only as compartments for certain kinds of results, but also as descriptors for methods and approaches—the habits of mind that determine how knowledge is organized and generated within mathematics itself. As such, they deserve to be centerpieces of a curriculum, not its by-products. The Program’s Structure. The CME Project uses the traditional American structure of algebra, geometry, advanced algebra, and precalculus.

What Is Math Anxiety?

Coping With Math Anxiety

A famous stage actress was once asked if she had ever suffered from stage-fright, and if so how she had gotten over it. She laughed at the interviewer’s naive assumption that, since she was an accomplished actress now, she must not feel that kind of anxiety. She assured him that she had always had stage fright, and that she had never gotten over it. Instead, she had learned to walk on stage and perform—in spite of it. Like stage fright, math anxiety can be a disabling condition, causing humiliation, resentment, and even panic. When I look at a math problem, my mind goes completely blank. Art of Problem Solving.
