Below you will find information about tools, games, books, and other sites devoted to middle school mathematics. Each entry contains a brief description and link for further information.
For questions about existing resources, or to make suggestions for resources to be added, please contact Jill Parker.
Math Tools from the Math Forum website
A math tools project from the Math Forum. Posted October 6, 2009.
Nets for 3-D Shapes website
This generator prints a selection of nets for the construction of common 3-D shapes. Cube, cuboid, cylinder, cone, regular pyramid, octahedron, rhomboid, tetrahedron, pentagonal prism and pyramid are included. Posted December 12, 2007.
Graph Paper website
Print free graph paper. Posted April 20, 2008.
Graph Paper website
Online graph paper.
Create a Graph (Grades 3 - 8) website
This site helps students create their own graphs and charts. This online tool can be used to make 5 kinds of charts and graphs: bar graphs, line graphs, area graphs, XY, and pie charts.
Graphic Organizers website
Presented by Houghton Mifflin Education Place. A variety of graphic organizers available for teachers to use in their classroom (Venn Diagrams, T-chart, KWL Chart and many more).
Math Activities from Texas Instruments website
Choose from activities in your mathematics subject area and TI graphing calculator.
Algebra Manipulatives website
The website provides users with a pattern to print to make their own Algebra manipulatives.
Algebra and Geometry Manipulatives website
The use of manipulatives enhances concept formation when both the concrete and the connecting stages are fully understood before moving to the abstract. Many concrete and virtual manipulatives are available to support the teaching of an array of concepts from number sense through algebra and geometry. Here you will find general information about manipulatives as well as instructions for the use of specific materials.
Hands-On Equations website
Hands-On Equations is algebra for elementary and middle school students. Hands-On Equations gives students a concrete representation of the symbols and processes utilized in solving algebra problems. The symbols are represented by game pieces and a representation of a balance scale. The processes are represented by physical actions upon these pieces. As the algebra problems are solved students are actually seeing, touching and moving the pieces.
Fractions, Decimals, Functions and More website
This is a great website for online manipulatives covering fractions, decimals, functions, algebraic equations and more.
Math Games website
This website has math games appropriate for elementary and middle school students.
Math Solutions, Marilyn Burns website
Free math and literature lessons posted on the Marilyn Burns' website. Posted April 8, 2011.
Living Math website
Links to math and literature books arranged by mathematics concepts. Posted April 8, 2011.
S.M.A.R.T. Books website
Supporting Mathematics and Reading Through Books, from Kansas State University. Searchable by grade level or mathematics strand. Posted November 9, 2009.
ACT College Readiness Standards for Mathematics website
From the ACT. Posted December 20, 2012.
NCTM Standards and Focal Points website
From the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics. Posted April 8, 2011.
Achieving the Common Core Standards website
This site provides free, high-quality resources to educators doing the hard work of implementing the Common Core Standards. Posted June 17, 2013.
Video Illustrations of the Standards of Mathematical Practice website
This site provides video excerpts of mathematics lessons to illustrate the Standards for Mathematical Practice. Also, Inside Mathematics has resources that align with the Common Core Standards for Mathematical Content. Educators can make use of these standards through searching by grade level as well as by progression. Posted June 17, 2013.
