 Angélica Safanova Lincoln Middle School 8th Grade ESL Math Class Website Class Activities/Materials Student Work from the 2005-2006 School Year 2006-2007 Here are some of the websites i found useful for inclusion in my teaching this year: The Flash Mind Reader http://www.cyberglass.biz/flshstuff/mindreader.php I used this as an intro to 6.1 divisibility test then i taught the lesson and then we went back and they had to figure out why this worked every time. Secret Worlds: The Universe Within http://micro.magnet.fsu.edu/primer/java/scienceopticsu/powersof10/index.html I used this one as an intro to 6.8 scientific notation so the kids could get a feel for the magnitude of these numbers Stem and Leaf Plotter http://www.shodor.org/interactivate/activities/StemAndLeafPlotter/ I used this one for 14.2 to illustrate the power of an extreme value on the mean of a group of numbers, and to illustrate why in such cases using the median is a better choice. Chances http://nces.ed.gov/nceskids/chances/ I used this on with 5.8 probability to illustrate why some sums have a higer probability of coming out than others Triangles http://oneweb.utc.edu/~Christopher-Mawata/geom/geom2.htm I used this one with 10.5 and 10.8 to illustrate that the sum of the interior angles of any triangle is always = to 180 degrees Shape Makers: Which is Which? http://www.ciese.org/ciesemath/shapemaker_new.html I used this one with 10.6 exploring quadrilaterals
