Visual fractions
The purpose of Visual Fractions is to picture fractions and the operations on them.
Thinking blocks
Thinking Blocks was developed by Colleen King in 2003 to help students who were struggling with math word problems. Before creating Thinking Blocks, Colleen was using problem sets from Singapore Math texts in a course for accelerated students at a math enrichment center. The model drawing approach in these texts gave upper elementary students a path to more advanced concepts and algebraic reasoning. Colleen sought a more flexible solution for struggling learners and designed a model drawing application called Blocks. The first group of students to test the program often made comments about how smart they were when using Blocks and how Blocks made "their brains work better". Colleen observed students who were reasoning, understanding, and problem solving. Her students were using thinkingBlocks.

*These are books that have been recommended by at least one Oklahoma educator. The links provided are to the Amazon website. We are not recommending purchase through Amazon, but we wanted to link to something.
Good Questions for Math Teaching
Open-ended questions, coined "good questions" by the authors, can prompt children to think creatively and critically. This useful book helps teachers define good questions, offers teachers tips on how to create their own good questions, and presents a wide variety of sample questions that span 16 mathematical topics, including number, measurement, geometry, probability, and data.
Essential Questions
Whether you are an Understanding by Design (UbD) devotee or are searching for ways to address standards local or Common Core State Standards in an engaging way, Jay McTighe and Grant Wiggins provide practical guidance on how to design, initiate, and embed inquiry-based teaching and learning in your classroom.
I See What You Mean
Some educators may view diagrams, pictures, and charts as nice add-on tools for students who are visual thinkers. But Steve Moline sees visual literacy as fundamental to learning and to what it means to be human. In Moline's view, we are all bilingual. Our second language, which we do not speak but which we read and write every day, is visual. From reading maps to decoding icons to using concept webs, visual literacy is critical to success in today's world.

The app takes advantage of the iPad’s visual and touch features to demystify complex algebraic concepts.

The original Hands-On Equations program, using physical game pieces, has already helped more than a million students gain confidence with algebra. Now that same, proven method is available virtually in the palm of your hand.

Level I of Hands-On Equations consists of six lessons and one review lesson. The student learns to solve equations such as 8+2x+3-x=2x+1 and 2(2x+1)=3x+8. There are more than 80 equations for the student to enjoy and solve!

Hands-On Equations is the ideal first introduction to algebra for elementary and middle school students. Not only will these students have FUN and be fascinated with the program, their sense of self-esteem will be dramatically enhanced as they experience success with sophisticated looking algebraic equations.

Older students who need help with algebra will also benefit from Hands-On Equations. These students may, for the first time, understand key concepts of algebra that have held them back.

More information on Hands-On Equations can be found at www.borenson.com and on YouTube.

Fill The Cup
Fill the Cup App.PNG
Four math games allow children to experience math concepts through manipulation. Rods is an addition/subtraction game that uses different sized rods side by side to show how two numbers make up another one. The child selects the rod that makes up the missing piece.

Fill the Cup allows the addition of fractions. Eight cups are filled by some fraction which shows on the cup. The child selects one to pour into a target cup, trying to fill it exactly. As the level goes up more difficult fractions are used.

Balance 1 is also an addition game. Two or three weights are placed on a pan on the computer side of the balance, and, depending on the level, the child must place one or two weights on the pan on their side of the scale to make it balance.

Balance 2 is for multiplication. This time a weight can be placed in various position on the balance to make its effect lighter or heavier. Depending on level, the computer places one or two weights, and the child is given one or two weights that they must place to make the scale balance.

The games provide instant feedback - the cup still isn't full or overflows, the balance thunks on one side, the rod is sticks out or doesn't reach - and allow correction. This builds confidence in the concepts and process of math rather than focusing on a single right answer.
