Websites to Support Enrichment
There are countless websites devoted to math and mathematical investigation! Explore away!
NRich.maths.org, out of the UK's University of Cambridge, is one of math specialist Ms. Laib's favorite websites. Use the "student" navigation on the left to explore many rich and engaging problems and games. This is best if explored with a buddy, since there is so much to discuss!
Lower Primary = Grades K-2
Upper Primary = Grades 3 - 5
Lower Secondary = Grades 6 - 10
Wild Math @ NRich
"Wild maths is mathematics without bounds. Here, you are free to roam and develop as a mathematician.
Mathematics is a creative subject. It involves spotting patterns, making connections, finding new ways of looking at things and using what you already know in new contexts. Creative mathematicians play around with examples, draw good pictures, have the courage to experiment and ask good questions."
MathMunch.org is a "weekly digest of the mathematical internet." Updated each week by three math teachers in New York, it offers links to some of the most engaging sites and mathematical connections around the web. Ms. Soltani (Gr. 6 & 7 Math) recommends the section dedicated to art and math.
Ms. Soltani (Gr. 6 & 7 Math) recommends Brilliant.org, which lets you share and solve engaging math problems with students and learners all over the world.
Visual Patterns builds algebraic thinking and reasoning. This is recommended for students in grades 5 - 8. The site features different growing patterns, represented visually through pictures. Can you figure out the pattern? What algebraic equation matches (e.g. y = 2x + 3, where y represents the total number of objects and x represents the number of steps it takes to reach that image)?
