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 :)

Comment for Kareen:

I have this unit I do with US students about how to purchase a house. I gear it towards my graduating 8th graders.

Hello! I have nearly completed my MS in Teaching Mathematics Grades 6-8. This group will be helpful to me, and I hope to share ideas with you!

To Kareen, I like to combine data and statistics with my year 8 work in fractions decimals and percentages. I do this by having students practice the f-d-p work while creating a frequency table of the data that they have collected. My colleague also includes an 'edible math' component, where the students must somehow represent their data in a visual form - eg pizza or cake pie graph, bar graph made up of food, etc. It is important to emphasize that accuracy and the inclusion of scales is important in the creation of the edible math project. You could even incorporate the edible math component with a study of fractions when measuring ingredients during an in-class or at home cooking exercise.

I am looking for math projects for a Grade 8 option that involves real life situations. anyone know of a resource or have a project they put together. I would like fractions,decimals and percentages to be a part of the project.

Lessons from the locker room

I've learned two things since I've joined the gym.One-I thought you just had to join a gym. Nope, you have to keep going to the gym. Over and over.Two-you can't rest when you reach a milestone, you always have to try something harder.When I first walked in, I was pretty overwhelmed. There's lots of complicated machines and scary equipment. Everyone there looks like they know what they're doing and they certainly could beat me up. Needless to say, I felt very out of place.The one smart thing I…See More
