Mrs. Pereira's Fun Math Links!  
for practice and play  


Welcome to my web page! I have lots of links here that can help you practice basic math ( like flashcards) or more advanced or fun math – just click on the links and see what you can find!
We are starting to work on integers. Here is a cute video with an introduction to integers. This link gives you the integer rules, and has a story (The Party in Mathland) to help you remember them. You can practice adding and subtracting integers here, using an interactive board. Have fun! Previous attractions: Some of us have been studying the Pythagorean theorem. Click here to see the animation with the squares on the hypotenuse, and you can also see the animated proof here.
Let’s look at a page about fractions Try adding fractions – Review Factors, multiples and prime factorization, then move on to percent We have several great geometry links: You can find a good explanation of what a plane is on a web site called "mathsisfun" . We are going to start by studying angles, so have a look here for a good review. If you scroll down on the "angles" page, you can find links to pages about various kinds of angles, and even an explanation of degrees. I especially like the page that explains how to use a protractor. You can look at a great page on quadrilaterals. There is also a page about on polygons, which is good for review, and a page with interactive quadrilaterals, where you can manipulate their shapes and find out more information about them. First, we can make some very simple tessellations here. Then we can move on to making tessellations where the orientation of the shapes can change. Many artists use this technique with much more intricate shapes than simple polygons. You can try this yourself on the shmuzzle web page One of the most famous artists who used this technique was M.C. Escher, and we can see some of his work online.. We will make some slightly less intricate shapes for our own tessellations, using a technique similar to this one. We can try something like this online to see the effect.. And finally, just for fun, here are some animated tessellations.
Use this "Measuring Measurement" web site to review . Then you may use the FunBrain measurement site to get more practice! If you want to see the web site I showed you all on the last day of term, zooming from outside the galaxy to within a cell, by powers of 10, it's here. Prealgebra class: Work on Equations using this Balance scale representation  it's fun, and shows how the equations work. Use the Grapher with the worksheet to see how the parameters of the function change its graph
A great interactive site to take you through 2step equations step by step A timed practice site  see how many equations you can solve correctly in 60 seconds!! And.... 2step equation flash cards Standard students: click here for lots of fraction practice sites
This is a fun place to practice coordinates. Here is a web site that helps you understand the difference between mean and median
Here are some sites to play with when you want t work on probability: Play with compound events, both dependent and independent This page helps to show the difference between theoretical and experimental probability If you want to review what we studied in graphs, here are some great links to help you undertstand and create graphs: There are some circle graph examples here, to help you understand how to read them. This website helps you to create circle graphs  if you try it, use the fraction option to start with. Create a graph is a fabulous web site which helps you with all sorts of graphs, and this graphing page also has activities with several kinds of graph. There is another page which can help you make a circle graph here.
PreAlgebra students, this is an interesting applet to compare box and whisker plots with histograms Lessons on Key Math Concepts – great for review! Vocabulary Games and Math Dictionaries Equivalent Fraction Games and Practice FCATExplorer – this is great practice for FCAT! Number Line – this is a good demonstration of what happens when you add integers. Drag the dots from side to side Line Jumper – this is great practice for adding and subtracting integers for FCAT!
