Are you looking for ready-made, interactive lessons for teaching math? Of course, we all love interactive activities so give Interactivate a try.
Interactivate focuses solely on teaching mathematical concepts and drills using interactive games, lessons, and activities. Interactivate is divided into two sections, one for teachers and one for learners. The teacher side of the site contains almost 200 lessons already built that will allow you to use the site and design your own interactive, hands-on activities for the classroom. Interactivate’s discussion boards will help you connect to other math instructors utilizing their tools as well as how the activities align to Common Core and several state standards for mathematics instruction.
The learner side of Interactivate has close to 300 activities that students can browse by name or subjects ranging from basic math through calculus! A built in dictionary allows students to use Interactivate as their own online glossary for math terms and operations as well as links to tutorials explaining several mathematical concepts. Interactivate also has over 100 tools available to use to experiment with different mathematical concepts and operations and to play with number manipulation.
Interactivate can be a wonderful tool to “mix it up” in your lesson plans, either in a one-to-one device setting, in small groups with students or with your class as a whole. Students will love the interaction with the activities on the site, and administrators and teachers will love the level of technology integration available on one site.
