Henrico County Public Schools Mathematics Pages


Henrico County (Virginia) Public School mathematics teachers are developing interactive web pages for their students to use in their mathematics classes.

Current resources:

  • C.a.R. (Compass and Ruler)
  • GeoGebra Geometry
  • Middle School Course 1, 2, and 3
  • Integrated Math 1, 2, and 3
  • Geometry - IGO
  • Algebra 1 and 2
  • Advanced Algebra/Trig
  • Statistics Sites
  • Discrete Math Sites

Times Table Practice


Susan Jones presents her strategy to memorize multiplication facts. "Studying 3 facts until they are mastered, then studying 3 more, then putting all six together, is a much more effective strategy than looking at 10 facts and going over them again and again."

Jones provides "fill in the chart" interactive pages organized in six stages for students to practice the times tables.

Mathematical Moments


The American Mathematical Society's latest "Mathematical Moments" connect mathematics with the world: From global warming to Sudoku; racing for America's Cup to reconstructive surgery; preserving archaeological treasures to burying carbon dioxide.

Intended for students, parents, teachers, administrators, elected officials -- everyone -- these introductory "snapshots" in the Mathematical Moments program help to promote appreciation and understanding of the role mathematics plays in science, nature, technology, and human culture.

Download PDFs of the 64 topics, a few of which have been translated into Spanish and other languages. Six Math Moments feature audio presentations; listen to them as free-standing podcasts or embedded within the Moment, so you can hear the expert as you view the PDF.
