This is a list of helpful Mathematics websites. You can either scroll through the entire list as a whole, or click one of the following bookmarks to get to a specific subject of Math.
All About Addition
This site has bright colors that would catch the eyes of a young child. This is a wonderful site. This site took every aspect of math and turned it into addition. Not only was addition with two or three numbers covered, but also addition of fractions, decimals, and place value. These games for fun and a younger child who is sharp on his/her math facts would feel challenged. I would not use the games for younger children who are just learning their addition facts because they might feel pressured against the clock. The games that the students can play are Countdown, Give Me Time, and 20 Questions.
I had so much fun on this site. This site is book marked on my computer. This site is interactive and provides the student to associate math with an event that they enjoy. If you have a boy in your classroom that you know loves baseball, and they will not participate in learning their math facts, this site would be wonderful. You can select the kind of game and the level of difficulty for the problems. They give the student a problem and if they get it correct, they get on base. The difficulty of the problem determines if the pitch is a single, double, triple, or a homerun. This site is highly recommended.
This site is great for a tutorial. This site is semi-complicated. The student can click on math and then a person comes on and begins to talk to you. He uses beach balls to teach addition. After going through the teach section of this site, I selected to play. After the students learn, they can play. This game is semi-slow. Instead of hitting enter, the student must use the mouse and go and click on the answer. It tells them if they are right or wrong.
Cool Math 4 Kids
This site is similar to drill and practice. Everything is a race against the clock. I like this site because they allow the student and/or teacher to select operation at the highest and lowest number. Teachers could use this site as a form of assessment of the operations.
This site is great for two students to play. The student clicks on the dice and uses the number as an addition problem. The more they get right, the higher up they move. The first one to the top is the winner.
Farm Stand Math Game
This site has the best graphics. This site is great for practicing addition with money. Students will love the colors and the graphics. The students add or multiply the food and then they put the answer in the block and hit enter.

This site allows teachers and students to choose any type of math problem to work from addition to division. This site quizzes the students by using the flashcards. There are three levels that the students by choose from: Easy, Simple Or Complex. Number sizes may very between 0-999. The computer will keep score and run the timer for the students. The student may choose to read the problems on-the flashcard vertically or horizontally.
This site allows teachers/parents to download the files for a free Demo that could be used as a full program. This site allows students to practice their addition and other mathematical skills. This site reviews numbers up to 20. This site provides score keeping and controls penalties and rewards for the players. It students get a problem wrong, the computer will repeat the missed question later on in the game. This is a great, interactive way to get the students interested in math and technology.
This web site is truly for the older student (grade 8-). The site offers puzzles set up like an addition problem in which digits can be substituted for letters to make the formula true. This can get confusing. There are rules provided when trying to solve the puzzle. A teacher should allow the students to work on this independently or in groups, but the teacher should allow the students to get frustrated with his flash her self and working this problem.

Number Patterns* This page could not be found
This web site introduces students to number patterns. It also includes a brief history of patterns.
Learning box: base 10
In this activity, the students are given a number and they have to put you their stripes or cubes on the mat to make the number. You can also include hundreds block for larger numbers. It shows a number line and moves along the line while the students are placing the stripes, cubes, or number blocks on the mat so they can see the number on the number line. There is a set of drums (3) and the number moves on it to show the place value of each number.
Learning Box: Catch Ten* Page cannot be found
In the activity Catch Ten, there is a bear named BT bear that catches blocks and then turns them into stripes of 10 cubes. They have set of three, four, two, and a cube that float down the river. Then students click on the blocks and the bear catches them; when he has 10 cubes, he tosses them to the edge of the river. The object is to make as many stripes of 10 with 50 blocks floating down the river. It is an excellent way for the children to learn to make stripes out of cubes
Harcourt School Elab
This was a neat site that models regrouping. It comes with an activity sheet with problems on it. You work the problem on the computer and then you record your answers. It helps to show when you need to regroup in the problems.
On this site, you may enter a number or the computer gives you a number. It then has the number and the place value written out. You can point to a number and it will tell you the place value. It also writes out the way the number is a written or how you would
pronounce the number. At the end of the activity, it askes what number is in a particular place, and you can click on the number you think it is. It then tells you if you are right or wrong.
Funbrain.com: Place Value Puzzler
In Place Value Puzzler, the students are given a number. The computer asks for a place value and you have to click on the correct number. If you get the answer right, then a puzzle piece is turned over. There are three levels in this game, so you can choose the difficulty level. There is also a part of the game where you can round a number to the nearest place value that is given. It gives practice on two different skills. This is a great site!
Digi-Blocks* This page could not be found
This site looked like it would be a lot of fun for students. I was only able to get where the first activity was. It was taking a while to download. It deals with place values and using the little green blocks to add, subtract, and solve problems. They use the same idea with the cubes, strips, and hundred blocks. The only difference is the students make the strips and hundreds blocks by placing the smaller blocks into the holders (you could say). I wish that I had been able to get into the activity; I would have liked to see it
There were about four activities on this site that had to do with place value and base 10. The only problem with it is that you have to subscribe to this site. From my understanding, you subscribe as a school and then the students have user names and passwords. I think that this site would most likely be very good to use in a classroom. It dealt with a lot more math concepts than just place value.
Base 10 Block Programs
I really liked this site because you could do a lot with it. You have a workspace that is a grid, but changes to the traditional mat that is divided into hundred, tens, and ones; you have a place value chart with decimals, and also one that is a XY axis. So you can get multiple uses out of it. You use the hundred blocks, tens strip, and the cubes to make numbers or whatever you are working with. Then, there is a hammer icon that will break the blocks into tens and then the tens into ones. You can also glue them back together. When you are finished, you can sweep the workspaces clean with a broom to the recycle bin.
Cool Math 4 Kids
This site is more of an instructional site. If you place your mouse pointer over a digit, it
will tell you what place value it is.

To access the probability information, use the Probability and Data Analysis link or scroll down to near the bottom of the page. This web site has a variety of links to pages that show a variety of probability online experiments and games. Most of these are examples for middle school math, but many of the activities are adaptable to the lower elementary classroom.
This web site is much too advanced for any elementary school classroom. However, I selected it because it does provide some historical information. This might be a web site to give to a gifted student and allow him or her to explore the probability concept. This link will not provide much teachable information for the elementary classroom.
New Zealand Math Statistics
This is a New Zealand Math web site that gives a sequential look at how students should learn probability in the primary grade. It provides a detailed look at the learning sequence and provides units that build on each level or sequence. One of the more important and helpful sites I have found.
This site is a glossary of probability and statistics terms and theorems. This site also shows examples of meanings. This would be helpful in later elementary and middle school, but some of these definitions can be adapted to younger children. This is a good site for teachers to get some background information on probability.
Data Management And Probability: Grade 1* This page could not be found
This web site shows the grade 1 requirements for data management and probability. What I am interested in is the links at the bottom of the page. A variety of links to Math sites pertaining to probability over the elementary years. Most of the sites do not limit themselves to just probability so they could be quite useful.
The Beginnings of Probability…
This web site briefly to tells the history of probability as a math. It is a fictional account of what was said between Pascal and Fermat. This web site has some problems and is a part of the "Famous Problems" section. This web site is not real helpful to probability, but give students a background on where it started. This could be used in some kind of supplemental activity or be the central theme for a math center or bulletin board.
This web site is called Probability Central and was designed by high school students in 1997. This web site is a type of WebQuest (I think). The site provides a learning section that concludes with some quiz-like exercises. It also has a probability calculator and a gaming section (a poker game which might not be appropriate for younger students), as well as links to other probability web sites. This is a very good web site to allow students to explore. The gaming section incorporates probability facts associated with poker. Again this is not appropriate for younger elementary students, and may not be appropriate at all depending on your location and administration.
This web site is designed to provide a collection of probability resources for teachers, researchers, etc. the web site has a variety of links to probability online tutorials, textbooks, resources, an interactive demonstrations. It also provides a variety of probability related quotes. This site also provides names of those doing research in the probability field.
Probabilistic Learning Activities
This web site is also a good slide for student and teacher exploitation. It might be better for upper elementary and middle school grades. This site also has a link to student projects and an activities page. This site is somewhat confusing; however, I think it is under construction.
