Get The Math

(Modified from Donna Murray’s Blog:  Explore the Possibilities.)

Click the Icon to check out the Get the Math website.

Looking for ways to incorporate real world experiences into middle and high school math classes?

Get The Math provides algebra-based real-world challenges for middle and high school students. The challenges focus on fashion, videogame design, and music production.  Students are provided with an interactive problem to solve. By watching video segments where professionals encounter algebraic problems, students become engaged and use interactive tools within the website to try and solve problems themselves.  Students then return to the video to see the professional team’s solution.

This site includes lesson plans and related resources for teachers as well.

Watch this short video to see how you can use Get The Math to support algebra instruction in your classroom. http://www.thirteen.org/get-the-math/teachers/overview-of-the-lessons/26/

Navigating the Resources

I love tech tools that can enhance classroom instruction, and there are so many out there that searching for just the right tool can be overwhelming.  I am working on a Delicious Stack to support teachers who are looking for some innovative and cool Internet sites and tools to use inside and outside of the classroom.



Check out my stack on “Super Cool Web 2.o Tools” by clicking here.  And…if you have suggestions regarding sites you would like to see me add, just let me know!
Happy surfing!
