Resources To Start Off Your Week 79

     You might have noticed that a lot of my posts lately have discussed the math classes that I am teaching. Of the 6 courses, I have 3 math classes (Grade 8, 9 & 10). As such, here are two AWESOME math-related resources to start off your week! As always, I will be adding these to my lists of resources under the Fav Websites heading.

1 ) Resource Lists To Accompany Grade 8: Math Makes Sense
- If your school has the Math Makes Sense set of textbooks from Pearson
  then you might find this website really helpful! The Hastings & Prince
  Edward District School Board has put together a list of online resources
  that align with each of the chapters in the Math Makes Sense textbook.
- Resources include activities for the SMART Board, supplementary
  practice, and enrichment options. If you follow the textbook closely in
  your classroom then you will appreciate that they've even gone as
  detailed as to list the page numbers that they are aligned with!
- If you are like me and don't necessarily use a textbook, this website
  still has a lot of supplementary math resources that can be used to teach
  the concepts in Grade 8 math!

2 ) Explore The MathTwitterBlogosphere (MTBoS)
- This 8-week series of challenges are designed to assist
  educators in exploring the online resources that can be found
  through Twitter, Blogs, etc. This is the perfect challenge for educators
  who are interested in expanding the PLN and connecting with other
  educators who are sharing about their experiences with math.
- As a new math teacher I am really looking forward to finding other
  educators who are blogging about math. I hope to connect with
  educators and find some lesson plan ideas that I can modify for my
  classroom.
