Free Stock Market Simulation

April 11, 2009

How the Market Works.com was my favorite of the online Stock Market simulations teachers can do with their class. I chose it because it has a teacher option to set-up a private game as well as monitor your students progress. I used the game for a quarter and was able to make worksheets to go along with the game. I will be glad to post the worksheets if anyone has any interest. This site has many features: it has a calculator for students to calculate how many shares they want to purchase, it is a FAQ explaining the basic questions about the stock market, you can download an excel spreadsheet that shows comparisons of your students progress, and a whole lot more. If you know of a better free site please let me know.

Algebra Help dot Com

April 5, 2009

I am always looking for sites where students can help themselves. In this modern age, we need students to realize the internet is a source for information and not just video games and music. I brought my students to the computer lab to search for sites that would help them on the Algebra problems I had assigned. They came across AlgebraHelp.com, a site with a bunch of helpful resources. Our favorite item was the equation calculator. With the equation calculator a student can type in an equation with a variable and receive step-by-step instructions on how to solve the problem. Since I require my students to show their work, this is a great resource for them to check their work at home.

Arcademic Skill Builders

April 2, 2009

If you don’t know about this site yet, go visit Arcademic Skill Builders immediately then come back and read the review. Seriously look at all the multi-player games, and that isn’t the normal multi-player sense. It should be called multi-computer, because that’s right you can get up to 8 students (or 7 and 1 teacher) competing on arithmetic skills at once.

Arcademic Skill Builders is coming out of the University of Kansas, so they must be doing something right with their funding. I wish they spent some money in marketing because every teacher should know about this site. And its free!!!

Sudoku + Arithmetic = KenKen

April 2, 2009

My wife cannot stop playing it and I have to admit I play it a bit too. Sudoku did not fully grasp by interest, but KenKen makes you practice your Arithmetic skills and makes good use of factors and multiples. You got to check it out. I have not introduced it to any Math Students yet, if you do let me know how they like it.

Bloxorz – Lesson 1

March 22, 2009

Keep track of the amount of moves it takes to complete each board. Complete each board at least 3 times to see if you can lower the amount of moves it takes each time.
(You will need to count as you go, the game does not keep track of each board individually!)

Hooda Math

March 22, 2009

hoodamath

Lets start with my website Hooda Math. I started this website back in August of 2008. I was getting ready for the year to begin, I had not found my job yet, and had no idea of my future. I figured I couldn’t plan so I would learn how to make math games in flash. I wasn’t that creative but knew we needed a free online version of Number Munchers the classic game that helped me memorize all of my math facts. I continued to make other games.

My wife had learned how to web design years ago at her old job, so she volunteered to design and maintain the site.

So, I had to add more content. I figured what do kids need for free online. I came up with short video math tutorials. I just started writing these recently after I ordered a electronic tablet. These have a ways to go, so please send me what you would like to be included.

In the games page, I began to add Hooda Math approved games, because kids are kids and they want to play fun fun games. So I wanted to make sure they were atleast playing games that I believe to use math thinking skills. To prove their relevance I have began to publish the worksheets I make my class fill-out when playing these games: Coffee Shop and Bloxorz, so far.

It also has a math links page and a contact form. I originally had a forum page, but now it will be changed to a blog link back to this blog.

please enjoy and tell your friends about Hooda Math.
