Illuminations (National Council for Teachers of Mathematics)

Illuminations is designed to: · provide standards-based resources that improve the teaching and learning of mathematics for all students. · provide materials that illuminate the vision for school mathematics set forth in Principles and Standards for School Mathematics, Curriculum Focal Points for Prekindergarten through Grade 8 Mathematics, and Focus in High School Mathematics: Reasoning and Sense Making.

National Library of Virtual Manipulatives

The National Library of Virtual Manipulatives (NLVM) is an NSF supported project that began in 1999 to develop a library of uniquely interactive, web-based virtual manipulatives or concept tutorials, mostly in the form of Java applets, for mathematics instruction (K-12 emphasis). The NLVM is a resource from which teachers may freely draw to enrich their mathematics classrooms.

 XtraMath is a non-profit organization dedicated to math achievement for all. Their goal is to develop effective, efficient, adaptive, and intrinsically rewarding supplemental math activities.

 The website's goal is to develop effective, efficient, adaptive, and intrinsically rewarding supplemental math activities.
 Open Middle
 Most of the problems on this site have:
  • a “closed beginning” meaning that they all start with the same initial problem.
  • a “closed end” meaning that they all end with the same answer.
  • an “open middle” meaning that there are multiple ways to approach and ultimately solve the problem.

Open middle problems generally require a higher Depth of Knowledge than most problems that assess procedural and conceptual understanding.  

Math Snacks

 Smart educational animations, games, and interactive tools that help mid-school learners better understand math concepts
