Welcome to the weekly round up of FREE math teaching resources here at Math Geek Mama! I love finding the best math resources from around the web to try and make it easier for you to find good quality lessons and ideas. Check back each week for more fun and free math! Have a great freebie to share? Send me a link!
I love this fun marshmallow addition set from The Measured Mom! My kids saw this open on the computer and said, “Cool! Do we get to do that!?” So I’ll definitely be using this this week 😉
I’m also enjoying a book on number sense from Mathematically Minded. You have to submit your e-mail to get this free book, but it is a very valuable resource. Look for it on the right hand side of the page: 4 Relationships That Will Increase Your Students’ Number Sense.
There is also a link at the top of the page with free teaching materials for grades K-2.
I also think this popcorn data idea is super cute! This freebie is really easy to put together, and a great way for kids to practice finding the mean, median, mode and range of a data set!
And I love this idea for using and working with a “fraction of the day!” This handy printable page gets kids thinking about a single fraction multiple ways, and can be used each day. (And if you’re not ready for fractions, there are also Decimal of the Day and Number of the Day pages!)
If you have older kids, try teaching integers using temperature! This post offers some good discussion questions, as well as free slides to use to get your kids talking about math and understanding integers.
With spring coming, you may also be interested in this free Peeps game for adding and subtracting integers.
And if you’re working with right triangles and the Pythagorean theorem, your students might enjoy this wordless proof (includes a simple printable to cut out). (Or, if you have a pile of Legos handy, try this Lego proof!)
