Welcome to Our Game Page
AIMS Puzzle Corner Grades 4-8 - AIMS Education Foundation - Puzzles are highly motivational tools that capture the imaginations of students. To infiltrate the classroom with a vibrant brand of problem solving, this site offers a tantalizing educational bait-and-hook in the form of a new puzzle each month. Clearly illustrates puzzles and solutions.
The Changemaker Game - Grades 1-5 - This interactive game challenges students to come up with the correct change from purchases in two categories: amounts less than $1 or amounts less than $100. The game provides feedback and reinforcement to encourage the hesitant.
Classroom Compass - Southwest Consortium for the Improvement of Mathematics and Science Teaching- Grades 5-8. This site is an on-line version of Classroom Compass, a quarterly publication. Instructional activities are linked to TIMSS and include excerpts from the National Science Education Standards and the Curriculum and Evaluation Standards for School Mathematics. A good site for teachers looking for interactive science or math ideas to illustrate abstract concepts. A great source for daily problem solving questions.
Developing Geometry Concepts - Grades 2-4 - NCTM's Illuminations collection offers this simple game - get the turtle home to his pond - for elementary students. You'll need to try it yourself first, because the directions are minimal. Once students understand the navigation, they can experiment with lots of different solutions.
Egyptian Mathematics - This British site introduces students to the ancient Egyptians' surprisingly simple yet sophisticated mathematics system. It's a colorful, well-illustrated introduction to another system of counting and numerical notation. Useful resource for students who are ready for an "out of the box" look at numerical concepts.
Figure This! - Grades 4-12 - This new but promising site from NCTM offers guidance and "math anxiety" advice for students and parents. The site includes sample problems which students can try, along with convenient explanations showing teachers and parents how the problems apply to real-life situations. This one's worth a look.
First Grade Backpack - Arithmetic - Grade 1-2 - Here's a selection of simple math sites compiled expressly for primary students. They provide quick access to a group of games, puzzles, and other math resources for first or second grade. Some can be used by students directly; others may require some help from the teacher. This site also contains geography and reading sections.
A Fractals Unit for Elementary and Middle School Students - Grades 4-8 - Cynthia Lanius, Rice University Math Teacher - This site contains lesson plans centered around Internet researching. It can be used for cross-curricular work in Math, Art, Writing, and History. Fractals use Arithmetic and Geometry also. There are print versions of lesson plans available for classroom use.

Kids Consumer Corner - Grade 3-6 - Social studies/math - Teach basic consumer skills of saving and buying wisely by having students investigate this student-made site, then have students test themselves with the crossword included in the site.

Kids Web - Math from Syracuse University - Grades 4-12 offers a wide range of sites involving General Math, Chaos Theory, Geometry, and Puzzles. Great resource for a math Web-based scavenger hunt.
Life by the Numbers - Grades 6-12 - This web site, from the PBS series of the same name, includes extensive program synopses, as well as lesson plans for each program segment. Many lesson plans include worksheets in Adobe Acrobat format that you can download and print. (You'll need the Adobe Acrobat plug-in for the worksheets. It's available on the TeachersFirst Toolbox page.)
Math Appetizers and Lessons for Math and Reason - Grades 6-12 include problems, curriculum guides, and links on various algebraic topics. The information is listed in chapter format from the author's book; text heavy.
Math Celebration Fair - Grades 5-8 - TeachersFirst's own game fest! Students create math games, then develop an "advertising campaign" to promote their creation. Combines math and language arts skills in an end-of-term celebration!
Mathemagic Activities Grades 4-8 - Cyberspace Middle School - The Mathemagic tricks described here are all based on simple mathematics and not on magic; though to those who do not understand the mathematics they may seem magical. Since these tricks are based on mathematics, they are relatively easy to do and pretty close to foolproof. They do require that you practice them a few times before you perform them.
MathMagic on the Web! - K-12 - Alan A. Hodson of El Paso Texas - This site - part of Swarthmore's extensive math resources - provides strong motivation for students to use computer technology while increasing problem-solving strategies and communications skills. MathMagic posts challenges in each of four categories (k-3, 4-6, 7-9 and 10-12) to trigger each registered team to pair up with another team and engage in a problem-solving dialog. When an agreement has been reached, one solution is posted for every pair. You need to use the Internet with this site. This site is easy to use and looks like it has many different resources.
Mathmania - Schoolnet (Canada) - Grades 6-8 - Though temporarily under construction as they update the site, they expect to be up and running soon. The site is usable to some degree now. It helps young mathematicians explore and research math topics. It also strengthens math skills. It includes lesson plans and activities to help review basic concepts and skills, glossary, and tutorials.
