It All Adds Up! 25+ Math Resources, Apps, & Tools

“It isn’t that they cannot see the solution. It is that they cannot see the problem.” – GK Chesterton

Math doesn’t live inside of a book. That is the wrong way to teach math. Math is useful for solving problems, and necessary to figure out the world around us.

Instead of having students solve problems in a book, give them learning missions where they use the principles and equations to explore the school grounds, their households, or the world around them. For example, students can research the statistics of their favorite team or players and create an interactive infographic displaying these statistics using Thinglink, EduBuncee, or Piktochart. Students can code a game, learn geometry and trigonometry while building structures in Minecraft, or interview math experts virtually. My recent presentation, It All Adds Up?, is full of more ideas.
