The formative tool QUIZIZZ will change your life!

  • Students work at their own pace. Unlike Kahoot, the timer is not ticking down on the screen.
  • Memes pop up identifying if the students are correct or not. 
  • It gives these beautiful green and red lines for each student. I just hop from red student to red student helping fill in their holes. 
  • It gives you the ability to review before and after the Quizizz using the exact Quizizz. 
  • It allows them to retake it until they earn the percentage that you feel that they should.
  • Easily printable data for individuals for the tier 2 and tier 3 meetings.
  • The questions are on the screen not just on the Smart Board.

Hi Patrick, 

I have been using the program IXL and Fraction Nation in my math classroom for the last year and both have been wonderful! I use IXL and Fraction Nation to support students with any math standard/concept aligned to common core.

I teach 6th grade math in Massachusetts. I'm looking for recommendations for:

1) excellent middle school math resources: websites, apps, books, lessons, etc; and

2) other great online math groups like this one where I can benefit from others' work.

So far, my challenge has been finding too many online recommendations that require hours of sifting through. Ideally, I'd like to get recommendations for what are regarded the best of the best. Something akin to Jane Hart's "Top 100 Tools for Learning," which provides a list of the most highly regarded learning tools.

Thanks for your help.

Do you know of anyone that has used the Intel math projects? I am looking at using them in a cooperative teaching environment during a probability and statistics unit.

Has anyone checked out Itunes and looked at the podcasts.  They have some great video clips dealing with math.

LiveBinders is just what I was looking for! I have been using One Note and love it. My classroom computer is a MAC and I needed to have something for accessing my plans. tyou

Hi! I'm joining this group because we plan to make Maths our focus for the year, specifically using inquiry methodology (IB PYP) as the approach for teaching all of the stand alone areas as well as the more easily integrated areas.

As a middle school math teacher, I have always struggled to find good online resources to teach more effectively. I recently came across a post on http://www.freetech4teachers.com/ about a new math resource site for teachers - TeacherZone. They have tons of math video lessons covering grades 3-10 absolutely free for teachers you can check it out at http://teacher.tenmarks.com).

I''ll periodically post other relevant resources which have helped me teach more effectively :)

Thus, students who were lucky enough to have compassionate teachers growing up have been trainedto develop gratitude and compassion. These…See More

Track Android device

Apps can secretly track an Android phone’s whereabouts and traffic patterns without needing access to GPS or WiFi, researchers have found.Researchers from Northeastern University in the US found that instead of using those features, you could do similar tracking by using a phone’s sensors, most of which don’t require permissions to use.Such sensors include the accelerometer and pedometer,…See More
