Whether you teach online or in person this fall, these digital math tools may come in handy for grades pre-K through 12.

For some math teachers, digital tools that help students visualize math concepts like Desmos or websites that encourage mathematical discussion like Fraction Talks were already a part of their repertoire before the pandemic.. A number of math apps and online tools can help students develop the necessary foundational understanding of arithmetic operations they’ll need as a baseline for more challenging math problems later on, math teachers told us.. In Moose Math, students play math games that earn them points to help build a town.. Curriculum and instructional designer Cassie Tabrizi recommended Happy Numbers (pre-K–grade 5), a subscription-based website ($14.50 per student or $1,450 per site for first-time schools) that breaks down mathematical equations to help students build understanding of higher-order math concepts.. Brittney Paige, a fifth-grade teacher in Seattle, says that even though it is more of a game, she likes that it automatically targets math concepts that students struggled with in its preassessment and tracks how much progress they make on target areas.. close modal Courtesy of Prodigy After successfully answering a math problem, a student's pet casts a spell in a battle.. Open math tasks—problems that typically have more than one answer—help students develop a conceptual understanding of math rather than get hung up on memorizing facts, said math educators we talked to, who consistently mentioned three free websites to use for open math tasks.. (pre-K–grade 12), a similar site, showcases four shapes, numbers, or graphs and asks students to describe which one doesn’t belong, using math vocabulary.. High school math teacher Mary Bourassa has her calculus students identify reasons why each graph in a set of four doesn't belong by indicating graph characteristics like asymptotes and non-differentiable points, and later has her students create their own WODB sets.. Simply asking students, “What do you observe?” can prompt them to share what and how many shapes they notice, while asking “How many shapes are red or shaded?” encourages students to explore and understand fractions.. By prompting students to look at subsections of a shape—and what fractions they created when combined— Bryan Penfound helped his seventh- and eighth-grade students to visualize adding and multiplying fractions .. According to math teachers, simulations, like manipulating an expression and seeing a change in a graph, are great tools to help students visualize math concepts.. close modal Courtesy of Ashley Taplin Ashley Taplin, a secondary math specialist, had her students graph how they felt during the first week of distance learning.

One of the hardest things for a teacher is to build a classroom community with relevant conversations and engaged students. Online it's even harder!

In distance learning, getting students to participate in a virtual classroom can be challenging.. Using online discussion tools can be a great way to help students build conversation skills and increase their engagement.. Video and chat platforms, such as Zoom , Microsoft Teams , GoToMeeting , Webex , come with polling features which allow students to respond to a question or task which pops-up on their screen.. In your virtual classroom, teachers can simply ask questions and ask their students to answer through the chat feature.. These platforms are free for both teachers and students .. Finally, these online quiz platforms are very intuitive and easy to use for everyone who uses them.. Teachers can prompt students in online collaboration activities by creating chat and discussion rooms or building online quizzes featuring the most interesting topics from the lesson.

There are many free of charge apps with each one including their own specific features. In this regard, here is a list of 15 useful apps for teachers.

Stick to private online communities The Facebook Guide for Teachers and the The Twitter Guide for Teachers discuss ways in which to create private online learning communities for yourself and your students..
