## PhET Interactive Math Simulations

What it is: Math simulations that are essentially virtual manipulatives for math. The simulations can be sorted by sub topic or grade level. They can be embedded on any other webpage or used directly from the site. Each simulation comes with a place to explore and a game where kids can practice their understanding.

Levels: A, B, C, D, E

How to use it: This is an awesome collection of virtual manipulatives. These are great for number talks and exploration of concepts, as well as for practicing math concepts. The labs can be used directly from this site, they can also be downloaded or embedded on another webpage. These virtual manipulatives are fantastic for remote learning activities!

## Open Up Resources Math

What it is: Open Up Resources has great comprehensive math curriculum for middle and high school level math that is project and problem based.

Levels: D, E

How to Use it: This curriculum is comprehensive and could be used as a major component of student’s math work. Use this as one of the rotations in a student’s math work each week.

## Home Learning Resources: Math

What it is: Math Learning Center has a collection of ideas for ways that families can continue supporting math learning at home.

Levels: A, B, C

How to use: Recommend this site or ideas from this site home to families to continue math learning at home!

## Which One Doesn’t Belong

What it is: A math exploration and critical thinking exercise collection.

Levels: A, B, C, D, E

How to Use it: Students explore images and come up with conjectures and proofs about which one doesn’t belong.

## Product Game

What it is: An interactive game for one or two players that exercises skills with factors and multiples. The goal is to get 4 products in a row by moving a marker to the factors to form products. Students can play against the computer or with a partner. (Full instructions for how to play can be found under the game board.)

Levels: C, D, E

How to Use it: Multiplication, factor, multiple practice, activity, game.
