Originally featured in the 06-11-2016 Scout Report, Interactivate offers a number of resources for mathematics teachers and students in search of hands-on activities.
Interactivate is a website created and maintained by Shodor, a North Carolina-based non-profit organization dedicated to developing resources that help students engage with computational science. Interactivate contains dozens of interactive online activities to aid in mathematics instruction. Activities include interactive probability games, graphing tools, and statistical analysis. Mathematics instructors can search for interactive courseware by subject (including fractions, statistics, algebra, and calculus) or by student grade level. Resources are available for instructors teaching all levels of mathematics; activities range from those that can be used in a 3rd grade classroom all the way up to activities for the undergraduate college classroom. While much of this resource consists of stand-alone activities, Interactivate also provides numerous detailed lesson plans that allow instructors to integrate courseware into their curriculum with ease. The website also identifies how each activity aligns with a number of national mathematics education standards, including the Common Core.
