REVIEW:
This is a great online resource for elementary math classes. Numberland features a giant magic square that reveals number poems, limericks, facts, and pictures that encourage students to learn about numbers. Top Jobs gives readers information on how math is used in everyday work. The Games section is filled with interactive Java games and links to other math games on the Internet. Students will enjoy the Explorer section, where they can explore primes, patterns, fractions, origami, anamorphic art, and much more. There is a prime and factor calculator for finding the factors of a number, and the Randomizer simulates the roll of dice or the flipping of coins. This site provides enough activities to supplement the math curriculum for the entire school year.
