Allows students to use a function machine at varying levels in order to practice seeing patterns in number and fills input & output values into a table. http://www.mathplayground.com/functionmachine.html
I am teaching translations, reflections and rotations next week. I found this catchy song/video that I am going to share with my students to help them remember the meanings of each. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jg46J8Oqjzw&feature=player_embedded
Solving one-step equations: http://www.math-play.com/One-Step-Equation-Game.html
Solve equations by using a numberline to balance the equation. Decide on the correct operation in order to solve the problem. http://mathsnet.net/algebra/l1_equation.html
Dimension U Fantastic 3D Math (LA & Science) video games from Pearson. Students LOVE these! Fantastic on the Smart Board! Free download for singleplayer. Free sign up (with parent) fro online multiplayer for scholarships and other rewards.
Teach by Magic Nice ideas to add to the DI "bag of tricks" for Math instruction (and other content as well).
My students adore this. They learn the words and sing along, learning real-life applications of linear equations and the concepts of slope and y-intercept.

Some excellent web sites for exploring the Pythagorean Theorem, which I am using in 8th grade math:
To review/introduce polygons: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5g23w0LKNQQ&NR=1
To review/introduce parallelograms: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rpkjb4Tx844&feature=related
To practice plotting points on a 4 quadrant grid: http://www.oswego.org/ocsd-web/games/BillyBug2/bug2.html
For fractions, decimals percents unit here are 2 good links:
Angles Jeopardy Game: http://www.math-play.com/Angles-Jeopardy/Angles-Jeopardy.html
Game that students can practice their ability to estimate angle measures. http://www.mathplayground.com/alienangles.html
I really like this lesson on rounding: www.educationextras.com/PowerPoint/Rounding_Numbers.pps
Rounding Flashcards http://www.aplusmath.com/Flashcards/rounding.html
This site is a great interactive site I use for the kids to get them warmed up before the lesson starts! http://www.coolmath-games.com/0-fraction-splat/index.html
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. http://www.mangahigh.com/en_us/maths_games/data
A line graph is a good visual for students to use to organize and picture their data. It shows them the range as well. http://www.glencoe.com/sites/common_assets/mathematics/mc2/cim/interactive_labs/M2_02/M2_02_dev_100.html
