Math Goodies

Last week, the 7th grade math class spent several days working on integers using  Math Goodies.

Math Goodies is a free math help site for teachers, students and parents that has lessons, printable worksheets, webquests, games, and puzzles. There are seven "calculators" available---though two are actually number generators and two are referred to as "obsolete clocks"---and the site has recently added a new glossary.

 Since I am not a math enthusiast, the most interesting thing about Math Goodies was the webquests page which sends students on web adventures to discover that math is connected to everything in life: shopping, sports, space, and even bananas! Mark it on your calendars: March 14 is Pi Day! There is a webquest for that as well.
