Numbernuts – maths site

leave a comment »

Rader’s Numbernut has such a visual draw to it that it makes the learning of maths fun and appealing. Just look at how striking it is.


Now for me you can’t beat simple and these icons are so nice, and they indicate exactly what area of maths they link to. And they link to some great activities that quickly engage children, along with explanations of what the maths terms mean. The activities are set up in such a simple format; but that’s not to say the maths is simple. I’d suggest giving this one a try.

Maths videos via Tutor-USA

leave a comment »

Tutor-USA is split into four sections (three of them currently active). It focuses on Maths. The Worksheets section has a collection of worksheets for access, provided you login. With the Math Tutoring section you can get access to maths tutors online. However, the section that particularly interested me was the Video Lessons, has embedded videos split down into separate sections, including Basic Math, Pre-Algebra, Algebra, Geometry, Trig, Prob & Stats, and Calculus.


There are also some good online maths games available:


Then there are lesson plans available. A set of maths tools and calculators, including quadratic equation solver, fraction calculator, and the like.
