Math Resources

Math Resources
 
 
Hello Families and Students,

Here are some links to websites that support mathematics.                                                                                                                                                            
Our current math textbook, Math Expressions, can be viewed through Blackboard. (Another way to access Blackboard is also on Glebe's homepage in the top right corner.) Once you enter the site, go to the top "For Students" and the Language Arts page opens up. The Math tab is at the top right of Language Arts. All of the classroom activity books are on this page. Students can hit the green speaker icon next to the text they are reading to have the book read aloud.                                                                                      
The second link provides you with the most recently adopted state standards, the 2009 Mathematics Standards of Learning for Virginia Public Schools.  The next three sites provide activities that engage in play while building skills.                                                                                                                                                           
A first rate math resource for families, students and teachers has been created by the National Council for Teaching Mathematics. Not only does it have activities, lessons, and standards, but it has links to many more websites.
 
A variety of math activities is found at the National Library of Virtual Manipulatives. One can find activities in Number and Operations, Algebra, Geometry, Measurement and Data Analysis & Probability based on approximate grade level.
 
Another plentiful site is mathplayground.com. This is a great site for families who are looking for more ways to challenge children or to provide them with more practice building skills. For me, this is the best site to explore and just have fun with math. 
 
Families, please feel free to share these resources with tutors or anyone who is helping your child with math.

Sincerely,
Math Coach
