Learn about our new math games and interactive learning programs in our September 2006 Newsletter.Math Help from ClassBrain, Inc.
Now that summer is over and school is beginning,
some classes are starting off at a quick pace.
Don't let yourself get behind. It's especially
important to understand the concepts they give you
at the beginning of your first semester, because
those concepts will be the building blocks for the
rest of the year.
Here are a few ways to keep on top of your math classes.
|New Math Games Section
Everyone seems to love the math games we have at
ClassBrain. Over the summer we added some great new
ones and we started to run out of room in our
Brainy Games section, so today we've launched
our new Math Game section. They're easy to
find, and they will keep you on your toes. What a
great way to practice your math!
We have basic Math
Flash Cards which let you practice addition,
subtraction, or multiplication at various difficulty
is similar, but the game is set up as a math drill,
and it includes division.
Games like Numbers,
Action, and Da
Numba are a blast. They are games in the true
sense, and are so much fun that you almost forget
that you're learning something. They tend to be
very addictive little games. Parents: You probably
won't have trouble getting your kids to practice
this sort of homework.
We'd also like to thank Becky Kinney of
moonlightmultimedia.org for the new math flash games
for younger kids including Regrouping,
Tens, and Complements
of Ten. These games help kids learn about place
value by allowing them to combine dots into groups
of ten and dragging them to add them together. You
can drag numbers together to add them, drag
individual dots off to add them, or combine sets of
ten together. These fascinating little
exercises let kids practice rather hard-to-
explain concepts. Even adults will find
these exercises fascinating to do.
Finally, don't miss our Sudoku
game. There are 25 different levels to choose
from, which should keep your local math whiz busy
for at least a little while.
Have fun with the new Math Games section. It's a
great way to exercise your brain, whether you're a
kid or an adult.
|Interactive Online Math Tutors
Do you need help with math? We have added some of
the coolest math lessons we've ever seen with the
help of Nutshell Math! So far, I've primarily put
up the low bandwidth lessons, but I'll be putting up
the rest of the broadband versions soon. There are
lessons available for Algebra 1 and 2, and very soon
there will be additional ones available for
If you haven't taken a look at these, please do.
They are like having your very own teacher in your
computer. You can play the lessons straight
through, or pause them while you catch up with what
the teacher is explaining. Take them at your pace,
and watch they as often as you need.
If you find these helpful, which I think you will,
please consider signing up for a trial subscription.
Your students can choose the math book they are
using in their class at school, and the program will
align itself to their textbook. Wow! It doesn't
get much better than that! I wish I had this
available when I was in high school!
If you are looking for some math worksheets, we have
some worksheets for various levels in the Worksheets
section of Teaching Tools. Some of them are
available under Set
Worksheets, and others. Some of these are great
for preschool students.
|Custom Graph Paper Generator
It seems as though everytime you need a piece of
graph paper and you can't find one, it's late at
night. Having been through this a number of times
ourselves, we decided to solve the problem by
allowing you to create graph paper to your
specifications, and print it out in the comfort of
your home. This Custom Graph Paper Generator lets
you do just that.
So relax! You won't ever run out of graph paper
second version of this graph paper generator is
available in the Parent Teacher Teaching Tools section.
A Variety of Math Help Available at ClassBrain
Math seems to be something that challenges a lot of
students at many different levels. Over the summer,
I searched out math
games, interactive math lessons, worksheets and more to
help. This issue
will introduce you to some of the fun and helpful
math materials available at your fingertips at
ClassBrain. Hopefully this will make the coming
school year easier for students, teachers, and
