ProveIt! TWO-COLUMN PROOFS PRACTICE TOOL

http://feromax.com/cgi-bin/ProveIt.pl

Michael Ferraro of Balboa High School in San Francisco, CA,
created this tool for students to practice their two-column
proof skills. Choose a topic to begin, and choose statements
and reasons from the list given. As you go, there are options
to remove or move statements and reasons in previous lines.
Complete the proof and check it with the "QED?" button.

Pearson Learning brings you free activities for students to
use with Wolfram|Alpha. The questions teach input and command
syntax or reinforce answer interpretation or the concepts of
intermediate algebra.

WEB-BASED MATHEMATICS ACTIVITIES FOR THE EARLY YEARS

http://resources.educ.queensu.ca/early_years_math/

These materials are a translation of the Spanish materials
created by the Instituto de Informatica Educativa (IIE),
Universidad de la Frontera, Temuco, Chile. The first and
second units have been translated into English, and the
third unit is available in Spanish through this Queen's
University site.

The units offer modeling, practice, assessment, and student
and teacher guides for each topic:

- Counting and Numbers
- Geometry in Our World

through a grant from Microsoft. IIE's original versions, in
Spanish, can now be found via

http://mathforum.org/redirects/iie.html
