Khan Academy: Math

You are likely already plenty familiar with Khan Academy as it has already been used by our math department to provide additional tutorials for students. Along with other powerful tutorial sites, a link to this completely free resource can also be added to the sidebar of class Schoology pages or wherever math homework is assigned. While the lessons are not specifically Singapore aligned in their explanations, for our older students it allows for tutorials as an additional accompaniment to their learning.

***Side Idea*** Once students get some experience with evaluating what makes a successful video tutorial, there are a number of platforms featured on this site that we can use to curate and showcase our own student lessons.

This app is great for creating visual representations of “Singapore math style” word problems. There are also self-guided lessons and tutorials that are a great option for extending learning for those students who would benefit from extra activities

This is an extension that you add to Chrome for easy overlay of math equations etc… into a Google Doc and other sharable cloud-based resources. It is a highly recommended resource to explore as it takes seconds to add and could save you, and even potentially students, considerable amounts of time.

Socratic can be used outside of math, but it really is designed and aligned as a math resource (obviously particularly with this version). It is a great extra resource for students who may want some additional breakdown of a particular mathematical concept.

Operation Math

This is a solid option for older students who are searching for a game based app that engages them in “mission style” math practice.

Desmos is a free online graphing calculator that you are likely already familiar with. It is a quick and easy “go-to” for graphing data and can also be used to create images and designs based on that data.

Matholia is a site that syncs extremely well with Singapore Math and has a robust set of tools for students to practice bar modeling, geometry, etc…

Quizizz is similar to Kahoot but with the added bonus of being able to display the quiz questions directly on all student devices. It also has a large library of premade quizzes from teachers and students all around the world.

Quizizz also has an app is on all library iPads so theoretically, a class could borrow them so they all had an iPad in front of them and their laptops could be freed up (or put away) depending on need.

FLIPQUIZ is a resource for making Jeopardy-style games. It doesn’t link you to student responses, in the same way, some of the other platforms like Kahoot or Quizlet do, but it is a good option to have on hand, particularly for students that want to use this as a component to a presented lesson.
