In this fun workshop, we will be exploring the integration of technology in


teaching mathematics by introducing you to some great math sites that are chock
full of lessons, activities, games, and videos that you can use in your classroom.
Both presenters will be showing you their favorite sites for making math both
useful and entertaining to increase classroom participation and retention.

Eunice’s Wicked Good Math Sites


1. Rhythm Wheels
http://csdt.rpi.edu/latino/rhythm/rhy_intr.htm

Musical rhythms make use of ratios. This website will provide you with some
cultural background on Latino-Caribbean music. The software will allow you to
simulate traditional musical rhythms, and create new rhythms of your own

Let’s take this out for a spin…

2. Radical Math
http://radicalmath.org/categories.php

Excerpts:

• “It is a bit like trying to explain football to people who not only have no
understanding of the word 'ball,' but are also rather hazy about the
concept of the game, let alone the prestige attached to winning the Super
Bowl,'' wrote Dr. Ian Stewart, professor of mathematics at the University of
Warwick in England.

3. Visual Fractions
http://www.visualfractions.com/

How do you think these fractions compare?

Lets give subtracting fractions a go !

4. Algebrator:
http://www.softmath.com/demo.html

Would you agree that Math shown step by step helps the student
understand the concept?
Lets look at this site …think how would you use this in your class?

Circle Equations

Choose which version if you want use:

Animated – is a movie
