Graphing linear equations:

Great free printable math worksheets.

This is the most amazing game for understanding the Pythagorean Theorm.

This is a game that allows kids to fill orders for soda for ounces, and at the same time practice mental math to fill the order the quickest by adding ounces.

Rounding Flashcards

This site is a great interactive site I use for the kids to get them warmed up before the lesson starts!

Website for comparing fractions and equivalent fractions.

Lets kids practice solving inequalities & reading graphs of inequalities.

I like these data games.  We are doing probability and data this month.  There is a lot of reading involved.  It is the most benificial if the student signs up for a membership because the games adjust the level the student is working at based on their accuaracy.

A line graph is a good visual for students to use to organize and picture their data. It shows them the range as well.

Whiteboard activities and virtual manipulatives for Science and Math

This is a fun, engaging video "Probability and Odds with Shaq" about the difference between probability and odds.

Continuing with the basketball theme, here's a teen-directed, animated video about correlation and line of best fit:

Here's a thorough, professional, interactive lesson on line plots:
