Moreover, it includes math spacermath for teachers (resources, support and ideas) and math for parents (resources, support, ideas) including spike’s game zone and Coolmath.commath spacer.
Coolmath4kids.com is a math site specially designed for what kids like and how they learn! Math really can be fun and really can be easy to learn. One “thank-you” email I received from a parent said, “No more tears at homework time!” That’s what it’s all about! So, look around… Parents and teachers play together with kids and learn!
For teachers there is a whole new area of information that includes, among others: Survivor Algebra (it is a completely new way to teach math to middle school, high school and college!), Karen’s Tricks of the Trade (it is a set of different -and often goofy- things teachers have done in the classroom to get the kids involved and motivated), Make a Rewards Chart (Kids love rewards and goals. Here’s a Coolmath rewards chart you can use at home or in the classroom. Go here for the chart, details and instructions!), Continuing Education for Math Teachers (The best teachers are always learning! Find out about e-portfolios, WebQuests, educational theorists, copyrights and fair use rules for the classroom, online forums for teachers, Standards links, cooperative learning and suggesting reading) and much more.
