Math lesson plan sites

LESSON PLANS: 

I have been clipping websites with good math lesson plans into my Evernote account. I have made the list public:

https://www.evernote.com/pub/compsciteach/teachinglessonplans

I tried to organize it by adding a descriptor at the beginning –

Assessment – can be used for assessment purposes

General – websites with lots of different math lesson plans

Real Life – websites that generate lesson plans based on real life examples

Short – Can be used for entrance tickets/transition activities

Virtual Filing Cabinets – Bloggers who share the lesson plans they use

Some initial thoughts:

1)  Dan Meyer (dy/dan) and Fawn Nyguyen rock.

2) The lesson plans at the Shell center are amazing – not only do they give you everything (including common student mistakes) – they have been tested in classrooms and revised.  I haven’t had the chance to look at many of the other ones.

 

MATH TEACHING TOOLS:

I also have been trying to keep track of the cool math (and general) teaching tool websites (Desmos etc…). Check out my list:

1)  Desmos and Geobra are incredible.

2) At the end of the Beyond Graphing Calculators pdf there is a list of good ipad apps.

3) Screencast -O-Matic is how the Khan Academy guy makes his videos.

4) Check out the msmathwiki – it is the Twitter math camp resource page – awesome collection of links.

Please let me know websites you think are awesome, by leaving a comment and I will try to add it to the list.
