# HYE Math Fun

Happy New Year Community Members!

As we start back to school, I thought it might be beneficial if we share some resources for math activities.  I found one that use a bunch - it has graph, dotty, triangular, hexagonal, etc. paper for free: https://www.mathsphere.co.uk/resources/MathSphereFreeGraphPaper.htm

I would be interested in hearing from people who have lessons they like using Desmos or other free resources.  Let's share out with each other.

Here is to revealing a wonderful mathematical world and helping learners to see it.

### And for your number lines:

Though I figured out how to make them in Powerpoint/Word (you make the lines and say "distribute evenly" and it does!!!)   too.

I use a table and only use the gridlines that make a number line.  The numbers under the lines are 2 cells merged together so that the number is centered on the line.  I use this for making my own documents and worksheets.

### MathLearningCenter Number Line and Other Math Apps

This resource was shared by The Adult Numeracy Network in one of their newsletters. The number line was featured in the article. Here's a link to what a number line might look like after students moved the values around:

I like this number line because it's interactive (if students are able to access it).

Hi all,

My favorite math teaching tool is Mathigon's Polypad (https://mathigon.org/polypad). It's hard to describe how many tools are in one place, and they keep adding new features. Here is a small sample of the tools:

• Polygons (rotate, duplicate, tile, etc.)
• Numbers (number lines, number tiles, number frames, cuisenaire rods, prime factor circles, abacus!)
• Fraction bars and circles
• Algebra (algebra tiles, balance scale, coordinate plane, sliders)
• Probability (dice, spinners, playing cards)

You can also create a class, use a teacher dashboard to see students' work, share Polypads that you create, etc. All free with a Google login.

Every time I look at the site I find a new something that I want to play with.

... have they organized it by standards or antyhing brave like that?
