require online resources, HomeworkSpot also provides
reinforcement activities in a variety of subject areas
including mathematics. Resources are grouped by grade level
(elementary, middle school, and high school). Math sections
provide links organized as general sites, topics, quick
reference, fun, and contests for each level:

          Alive Maths/Maths a Vivre - Nathalie Sinclair

                   http://math.ai.iit.nrc.ca/

Alive Maths/Maths à Vivre has two principal goals: to
motivate and encourage students to attend to spatial and
numerical relationships, and then interpret and communicate
them; and to provide students with a means of reflecting upon
and sharing their mathematical work with peers and teachers.

"Play with Lulu" and "Play with Reflectominoes" are the
interactive microworlds for students to use. Both of them
have teacher support pages, "Lulu Math Asides" and
"Reflectominoes Math Asides," including correlations to
curricula.

Students log in to "My Album" to use the note icon to add text
to a page that can be saved. The Web page will keep track of
where they have been and when they visited a particular page.

Created and maintained for SchoolNet (http://www.schoolnet.ca/)
by Nathalie Sinclair, Alive Maths/Maths à Vivre is available
in both English and French.
