Their professional development workshops provide an ongoing support community, a lesson plan database, and a discussion board. The site provides mathematical investigations into: - Algebra - Geometry - Number Concepts - Data Analysis Funded by the National Science Foundation, InterMath is a collaborative effort between The University of Georgia, CEISMC/Georgia Institute of Technology, and regional technology centers in the state of Georgia. A searchable middle school-level mathematics dictionary features: - Description - Related Terms - Everyday Examples - Interactive Checkpoint - More Information - Challenge http://www.intermath-uga.gatech.edu/dictnary/homepg.asp -|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|- TESSELLATION EXPLORATION - Kevin Lee http://www.tomsnyder.com/products/productdetail.asp?PS=TESEXP With the Tessellation Exploration software, transformational geometry concepts are reinforced as students create 2-dimensional tessellations, then watch them slide, turn, flip, and glide on the screen. Students also explore tessellations that exist in the world, such as honeycombs, tile floors, and brick buildings.
