Cool Math Websites

What makes a math website 'cool'?
What makes a math website useful?

There are many questions that students need to reflect on in regards to the worth of some of the 'educational resources' available on the Internet.

Tonight I've added to my website a website review task in which the children need to explore a few math websites that I chose and discuss them. They then have to head to the Internet to see what they can find in the way of 'Cool Math Websites'.

They then have to blog their findings and invite comments. This is a really good activity as so much fantastic discussion and reflection occurs. The other benefit is you might come away with a few new math websites for your Teacher Toolbox :)



PS I'm back up to 3rd in the Bloggers' Choice Awards. Feel free to cast a vote my way if you now have a way to 'Work Smarter, Not Harder' ie you've just learnt how to get 30 students finding teaching resources for half and hour each. That's 15 hours of your time that you don't have to spend on school work (he says with his tongue firmly in his cheek) hehehehehe
