  • Sage

• Software - cost


• Software - other maintained mathematical software lists/pages:


• Virtual Manipulatives (interactive mathematics) - Simulation/Modeling


• Video (dynamic, but not interactive)


• Math Tutorials

  • Free math videos.
  • Mathsmaster - www.mathsmaster.org
  • Math A Tube – This site offers a collection of videos from users and websites that are arranged by mathematics topics and sub-topics. Just by watching a video, you can learn very basic skills and problem solving, as well as more advanced material like Geometry.
  • Math TV – This site is full of high quality math tutorials. Many different levels are covered, from basic mathematics to Algebra. You are able to create your own playlists so you can arrange them by lesson or subjects you are teaching or learning to help enhance learning.
  • Tutor USA – Teachers and students can find a lot of helpful links on this site. Along with the tutorials, there are also tons of free worksheets and lesson plans that you can use in your very own classroom. The videos range in length and style, so you are sure to find something that fits your needs.
  • Brightstorm – Here you will find great online study materials for math, as well as for tests like the ACT and SAT. All mathematics tutorials feature videos of math teachers explaining and demonstrating how to solve certain problems. You can view them right on the site or you can embed them in a wiki, website or classroom page.
  • Mathtrain.TV – This site was made from a group of students from a middle school in California. You can watch videos made by the students themselves. The student explanations may offer a different and more familiar approach to problem solving for many students. There are also videos by teachers that can be viewed.
  • Khan Academy -

• Ebooks

  • Math and Parents: Teacher-to-Teacher has developed resources for you to use in implementing the findings of the National Mathematics Advisory Panel. The panel has highlighted promising interventions to improve the mathematical knowledge of young children before they enter kindergarten. Teacher-to-Teacher has created a short film for schools and teachers to share with parents about what they can do to support their children's math knowledge and skills. We hope that you'll share it with parents during open house, conferences, or parent math night. This video and other digital learning opportunities are listed in the new Digital Learning tab on our website.
