Computer Technology for Middle School

New E-Labs site - This is a new (shockwave based) version of the popular E-labs (java based) we’ve used for years. Part of the Learning Site, from Harcourt School PublishersMath Jingles are new.

Classzone – my understanding is that this site may be used for educational purposes, even if you are not using their books. Lots of nice animations and learning games.

Project Interactivate – For me, right now, this is the Number One Free Math Site on the Internet for interactive applets! (Otherwise known as the “Shodor Applets.”) – That’s it.  Learn about fractions visually.  Includes equivalent fractions, mixed fractions, addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division of fractions.  Learning games included.

Fraction Model – Set, Circle/Area, and length/rectangle models. Version 123 (NCTM).

Huge Virtual Manipulatives Site – Click in the body of the table for the standard and grade level band.

Peanut Software – This is great software and it’s free!  “Wingeom” does many of the same things as Geometer’s Sketchpad (and some new things too).

Powers of Ten – View the Milky Way at 10 million light years from the Earth. Then move through space towards the Earth in successive orders of magnitude until….(try it!).

CyberChase Games – From PBSKIDS. Click here for my descriptions and my evaluation of the games. For K-7 students. Part of Cyberchase.
