EducationCity's Math module is a diverse collection of activities, interactive tools, tests, tutorials, games, and word problems. You can use the handy standards map to see how the different resources address various Common Core standards. All of the activities come with valuable support materials including teacher notes, lesson ideas, and worksheets. Grades 2 and 3 seem to include the largest number of activities.
Spend some time searching through all the offerings before introducing any one of them in a lesson. You can use the resources here individually, in small groups, or in whiteboard mode for whole-class instruction -- some will work better than others in certain scenarios. The interactive Topic Tools are probably best for whole-class instruction, and the Learn Screens (tutorials) are a great way to reinforce learning. The worksheets that accompany most activities could work well for independent classwork or as homework. The Thinkits take concepts a step further and promote critical thinking; it's probably best to use these as extension activities, once students have mastered a topic.Continue reading Show less
Key Standards Supported
Counting And Cardinality
Understand the relationship between numbers and quantities; connect counting to cardinality.
Count to answer “how many?” questions about as many as 20 things arranged in a line, a rectangular array, or a circle, or as many as 10 things in a scattered configuration; given a number from 1–20, count out that many objects.
Measurement And Data
Tell and write time in hours and half-hours using analog and digital clocks.
Operations And Algebraic Thinking
Fluently multiply and divide within 100, using strategies such as the relationship between multiplication and division (e.g., knowing that 8 × 5 = 40, one knows 40 ÷ 5 = 8) or properties of operations. By the end of Grade 3, know from memory all products of two one-digit numbers.
Solve multistep word problems posed with whole numbers and having whole-number answers using the four operations, including problems in which remainders must be interpreted. Represent these problems using equations with a letter standing for the unknown quantity. Assess the reasonableness of answers using mental computation and estimation strategies including rounding.
