Math Goodies  today on Internet Minute.
Anything that gets kids engaged in math is a good thing. And when you can get them not
only engaged, but enjoying it, you're hitting a home run. Mrs. Glosser's Math Goodies are
designed to do that. It's a web site run by Gisele Glosser, focused on interactive math
lessons. The lessons are mostly aimed at 5th through 8th grade students. Each Volume of
lessons comes in related groups  like geometry  and includes a set of Challenge
exercises. 
For example, do you remember how to find
the area of a parallelogram or a trapezoid? How about the perimeter of polygons? No? Maybe
you and I could benefit from a visit to www.mathgoodies.com
too. Then, there are things called factors, composite numbers, and exponents.

Is your child having a tough
time with geometry? Maybe it's time for a visit to the Math Goodies site. Choose a topic
such as 'Integers' or 'Perimeter & Area of Polygons,' and you'll get interactive
lessons with sample problems. You'll also find puzzles, message boards, worksheets, and
homework help on this site, targeted mainly at fourth through ninthgraders but great for
anyone who needs a math refresher course on topics from conditional probability to prime
numbers. 

Math Goodies was graded A+ when reviewed
by Education World in May, 1999. 
Mrs. Glosser has been busy
putting together a first rate site on upper elementary and middle school math. The site
offers a set of interactive lessons on a variety of math topics that can be downloaded as
shareware and used offline. Click on Resources for a set of calculators, puzzles, and a
good list of tips for parents about helping their children with homework. The site also
features Mathchat  a set of discussion groups on a range of topics including:
Homeschooling Support, Homework Help, Teacher Talk, and several others. Look under
Connections for more teacher related discussion threads. You can even set up personal
discussion groups for class projects. Math teachers and homeschoolers, bookmark this site!


Homework Central featured Math Goodies as
a "Top 8 Academic Internet Research Site" in one of its April, 1999 newsletters. 
There are four sets of lessons:
Understanding Percent, Number Theory, Circumference and Area of Circles, and Perimeter
& Area of Polygons. Lessons on Integers are promised soon. Each lesson explains the
basics of its topic and provides interactive practice. These excellent teaching pages,
from the Website called Mrs. Glosser's Math Goodies, provide explanations that are, like
mathematics, crisp and beautiful... 

In April, 1999, Math Goodies was featured
in the Class Collections at 4teachers.org 
Math teacher Gisele Glosser has
been doing Web design since 1995... Gisele has taken advantage of Internet commerce to
help fund her online efforts, but don't worry, you won't find banner ads on the pages for
students. These areas contain interactive lessons, puzzles, and math applications. Be sure
to visit Connection Corner to get ideas and lesson plans for math and interdisciplinary
projects, and to learn about those 'real world' connections your students are always
asking for when it comes to learning math! 

Math Goodies was featured in Web This
Week in March, 1999. 
...The Math Goodies web site is
an indispensable site for any student or child who wants to improve their math skills and
teachers and parents will also find Math Goodies a valuable tool in teaching their
children problem solving skills. 

In July, 1999, Math Goodies was featured
in Tech Museum Of Innovation. 
Today's children will enter the
work force in the twentyfirst century. Regardless of the path they choose, they will need
good problemsolving skills to be successful in their careers. This web site is dedicated
to teaching math concepts with a problemsolving approach, and to providing online
resources to enhance math and other instruction. Aimed mainly at 5th to 8th graders, the
grouped interactive lessons and challenges are a worthwhile addition to any teacher's
bookmark list. 

Math Goodies was featured by Super Sites
the week of May 5, 1999. 
Mrs. Glosser's free educational
web site is designed with both the teacher and student in mind. Teachers, the interactive
math lessons are complete NCTM Standards for Teaching Math. In addition, the students in
your classroom will find the lessons to be fun as they will be actively engaged in the
learning process. Also, homework help and suggestions are available. 

Math Goodies was selected as a CLN
Network Nugget on April 20, 1999. 
This site uses a problem
solving approach to teaching various Math concepts. At the present time the
following areas contain lessons: Understanding Percent, Number Theory, Circumference and
Area of Circles, and Perimeter and Area of Polygons. In each of the lessons, various terms
are hotlinked to an easy to understand dictionary meaning. Diagrams are included which
help clarify the concept. Each group of lessons also contains one set of challenge
activities for those students who would benefit from such exercises. 
Math Goodies was reviewed in the October 28,
1999 issue of the World Wide Learn Newsletter. 
This awardwinning site is home to free
interactive math lessons. While primarily geared to the K12 audience, one can never have
enough math skills! (Any of you remember what an integer is?) Lesson plans, puzzles, math
chats and homeschooling support contribute to this excellent site. 
Math Goodies was reviewed by
ScienceNetLinks. 
The Math Goodies Web site is one of the
finest sites of this nature I have ever seen or used... I found the questions challenging
and the explanations comprehensive and clear... For the teacher, especially a new teacher,
areas can be found for Interdisciplinary Studies, Classroom Gems, and Real World
Connections. I found the last one of great value because Mathematics teachers are always
looking for real world connections in terms that a student can identify with. This helps
answer the old complaints of, “Why do we have to do this?"... In conclusion, let
me restate that this is a great site. I plan to use it for myself and with my students. I
am also giving the site address to all the Math teachers in my department. There is
definitely something for everyone concerned with Mathematics (i.e., Students, Parents, and
Teachers) in this terrific site. — Robert Burchell, Paramus Catholic High School
