Classroom math projects that use the Internet, many from 
the Kidsphere or Classroom Connect mailing lists.
 
Teachers may register for a project to use it in their 
classrooms, suggest projects, or look for other classes 
to work with. Online projects may be publicized by
emailing a description to projects@hmco.com.

- Tidal Passages 
- Nation of Weatherwatchers

                    Project Pages from
            THE LEVERING SCIENCE MAGNET SCHOOL

              http://www.levering.k12.pa.us/

Web presentations of science and related projects (math, 
architecture, time, measurement...) for primary and 
middle-school grades, and special subjects (music, 
libraries, Web research), have been developed by teachers
at Philadelphia's Levering School in cooperation with the
Franklin Institute Science Museum. 

The pages include lesson plans, journals, pictures, movies, 
and results, as well as standards addressed and links to 
related Web sites.

Examples of math used in projects include measuring and 
calculating (making working kites; finding the circumference 
of an orange, weighing the orange with and without the peel, 
then finding the edible percentage of the orange); 
probability in math (die-tossing and other puzzles) and 
music (Mozart's Musical Dice); logic (toothpick puzzles, 
Geoboard Rectangles); and many more.
