Welcome to the weekly round up of fun math teaching freebies! Every week I share lessons, games and resources that I find around the web for grades K-12. And best of all, they’re FREE! Do you have a fun math teaching resource to share with Math Geek Mama readers? Send me a link so I can share it here! 🙂
I LOVE this set of low prep addition games from The Measured Mom! This set of games encourages using strategies and building number sense rather than simply memorizing facts. I’ve already downloaded them to use with my kids!
And this is not exactly a math teaching resource, but it is a fun way to combine literacy skills with math! I’ve also printed some of these Calculator word riddles for my kids, because they are so much fun! And I think the calculator is an important tool, so this is a great way to start introducing kids to a calculator and how to operate one.
And this post has a fun freebie for displaying the various 3-dimensional shapes and their attributes (scroll to the bottom for the freebie). It is intended for a large chart in the classroom, but you may be able to adapt it for student notebooks.
Introduce kids to shapes in a hands-on way with this free lesson from Mommy Crusader!
And this is a great post on multiplying fractions and whole numbers. Plus, there’s a free sample of some word problem task cards to practice!
Looking to encourage students to persevere or pursue higher levels of math and science? The movie October Sky is a great and motivational film, and while this is not a math lesson, it does provide lots of things to think about and helps students see math in real life.
Do you have a high schooler interested in engineering? This book is currently free for Kindle and introduces techniques and practices to high school students. (Please note: prices on Amazon can change. Be sure that this is still free when you go to download).
And if you’re looking for AP Calculus review (the test is coming up soon!) this site has previous multiple choice questions organized by topic. Looks like a great resource!
I hope you found some helpful teaching materials today!
