Content

http://illuminations.nctm.org/

NCTM’s free lesson and resource center, with many online applets. Note the Calculation Nation link leads to some excellent 1 and 2 player games, but require a free login account. (Guest access to try it.)

http://ohiorc.org/for/math/

An Ohio Resource Center with links to many topics by grade and content. Some high quality resources.

http://nrich.maths.org

From the British equivalent of the NCTM. Once you get past how they say ‘maths,’ there’s an excellent supply of interesting problems, some clever student solutions, and open challenges. Also features some interactive applets.

Internet Resources for in class use

http://math.hippocampus.org/

An extensive collection of online exposition of topics from algebra and calculus. (As well as Bio, Chemistry, Physics, etc. Some support for Spanish.) Includes a voice delivering reading of the text (with a skip forward feature), and assessment along the way. Not clear what the purchase of a license adds, but everything I’ve seen was free.

GE’s interactive whiteboard, open to collaboration, optional graph paper background. Colors and some shapes are possible. You can save files.

http://www.wolframalpha.com/

Wolfram|Alpha, a free computational engine online. Amazing and worth exploring. Also some encyclopedia function. Supercedes some of the older online utilities.

GeoGebra, a free dynamic geometry program that can be used as a web app or by downloading and installing. Some powerful algebraic applications, too.

Games

http://www.funbrain.com/brain/MathBrain/MathBrain.html

K-8 math games. Not very challenging, but there are students for wom this will be just right. Connected with Poptropica, which my kids love, and features some decent problem solving.

http://gprime.net/game/

Huge collection of flash games – not all kid appropriate. Some excellent math and reasoning games, though. Try 3D logic, a maze game on 3 cube faces (http://gprime.net/game.php/3dlogic), gridlock, the classic game (http://gprime.net/game.php/gridlock) or grow island, a deductive reasoning game (http://gprime.net/game.php/growisland), and one of a family of grow games (http://www.eyezmaze.com/grow/v3/index.html).

Very challenging puzzles by a very interesting man, Robert Abbott. Also links to some games of his creation.
