How I Use It
Illuminations is a website created by NCTM, with a wide variety of math resources, including lessons, activities, digital tools and more. These resources can be searched by grade, topic or standard to help teachers and students navigate the wealth of material that is available.
My Take
Pros: A wealth of material to draw from. A nice variety of quick interactive pieces that can be easily incorporated into a lesson. Full lesson plans that can be used or adapted as needed. Cons: There is so much there that it can be difficult or time consuming to sift through some of the materials. Some of the digital tools are a little dated and aren't always tablet friendly.
