Most people think science is more fun than math, because science does all these cool experiments and you get to play and manipulate cool things. What if I told you math could be the same way. Everyday in mathematics everyone is learning something new and you are using your brain to manipulate formulas and numbers to the way you want them. But, there are also websites and other manipulative you can have in the classroom that is more hands-on learning. One of my favorite new websites is http://www.exploratorium.edu/explore/ where there are hands-on activities, articles, videos, and more. The website features different subjects each week, a few of the categories this week is Geometry Playground, Walk a Math Trail, and my favorite Pattern of Cracks.
Other websites that I have found that incorporate math experiments is Math Experiments, Activity Center, and 200 Free Math Experiments. All of these websites include lessons include full experiments in mathematics and they will keep the kids interested and wanting to come back tomorrow (if block schedule) or sooner (if not).
