Mathematics Classroom Resources

This collection of lessons and web resources is aimed at classroom teachers, their students, and students' families. Most of these resources come from the National Science Digital Library (NSDL). NSDL is the National Science Foundation's online library of resources for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics education. See

Math Forum
Resource: Educator (grades 4-12)
Math Forum is a leading online resource for improving math learning, teaching, and communication. Math Forum offers problems and puzzles, online mentoring, math tools, problems of the week, a teacher exchange, and professional development. Students have fun and learn a lot. Educators share ideas and acquire new skills.

Teachers' Domain: Mathematics
Resource: Educator
This Web site contains a multitude of resources for the educator in elementary and middle school.

Fresh Baked Fractions
Resource: Students (grades 4-6) and Parents
"Fresh Baked Fraction"—part of the Web site—lets kids in grades 4–6 test their fraction skills by reading and answering multiple choice fraction questions. Kids who answer 24 problems correctly can put their name on Jackson's "List of Master Pie Bakers."

Math Cats
Resource: Educator (elementary) and Students (elementary)
This Web site is a highly interactive site geared to children ages 12 and under. It includes a math art gallery, Microworlds and Logo programming and math questions on a "magic chalkboard." The site also features a teacher section when clicking on "Site Map and Info" where teachers can get and share ideas for teaching math. Great for kids and teachers for in classroom use.

Welcome to Zona Land
Resource: Students (high school and above) and General Audience
Ed Zobel, the author of Zona Land, created this Web site to function as a resource for students and teachers, as well as any interested individuals, who want to study physics, the mathematical sciences, or mathematics in general, but are having a difficult time with textbooks or other approaches. The goal of Zona Land is to present the fundamental ideas of these subjects at the introductory and intermediate levels by presenting pictures and explanations through graphics, animations, and text.

Statistics Online Computational Resources
Resource: Students (college)
The Statistics Online Computational Resource (SOCR) was established in 2001 to design, implement, validate and freely disseminate new methods and approaches for integration of technology in the educational curriculum. The SOCR Resources are developed by joint efforts of faculty, researchers and students from various UCLA departments and centers.

Mathematical Moments
Resource: Students (high school and above) and General Audience
The American Mathematical Society's Mathematical Moments featured on the Web site shows how math affects us all, with examples that range from origami to robotics to fractals through easy to read, one-page presentations. Pod casts are also featured to describe in more detail the concept presented.

World of Mathematics
Resource: Educator and Students (high school and above)
As part of the Math Forum Internet Mathmatics Library, this site offers a variety of resources specifically focused on Fractals and Scales for high school and college level students and teachers.

Mathematics Research Overview
Resource: All Audiences
Mathematics is about numbers, shapes, symmetry, chance, change and more. It is not only the most rigorous mental discipline ever invented, it's among the richest, most wide-ranging and most useful in all of modern life. As part of the National Science Foundation's Web site, this Web page assembles information together through research into a "Big Picture".
