I’m linking up with DocRuning to share Teacher Treats, just in time for Halloween this weekend! At the bottom of this post, you can find links to other blogs that are sharing Teacher Treats too!
There are several websites that I used ALL THE TIME when I was teaching. I thought I’d share them with you! In no particular order…
- Wolfram Alpha - This website is essentially an academic google. You can search all kinds of stuff and it will give you an encyclopedic type answer. However, it is made by the same company as Mathematica. It will do all kinds of math computations for you without you having to code anything. It has greatly contributed to my laziness while making keys for homework and tests :) You can type in things like you would in Google and get answers. Check out the beauty below.
- Youtube - Youtube is great for finding video clips to enhance lessons. I have written about videos for teaching slope. Lots of teachers have also posted videos of themselves teaching lessons. This could be a great alternative if you need to be out sick, but still teach content. It’s always nice to have options!
- Pinterest - I don’t think Pinterest is new to anyone, but it’s still a great place to get ideas. I often use the search function like google to search for topics or keywords for lessons. I have a Pinterest board for each high school math course and lots of boards for other school related things too.
- Teachers pay Teachers - I talk about Teachers pay Teachers quite a bit, but it really has been so helpful for me. There have been several times that I’ve been in a bind and needed something quickly. TpT has always come through for me. It’s nice to get the free resources, but if you’re willing to pay, you’ll get very high quality resources. You can find my store here.
- Graph Free - This is my favorite online grapher. I like the Geometer’s Sketchpad software, but it has limitations. My favorite part about Graph Free is that it is so easy to plot piecewise functions. You can change the “Plot Function” from Function to Piecewise. The “Grid Type” can also be changed for trig graphs. There are video demonstrations if you want a tutorial as well.
While there are tons of great websites out there for math teachers, these are my favorites!
What website could you not do without?
