Founded in late 2003 and heartquartered in France, we are **non-profit** and **independant**.

We believe in the open web, think internet services should be sustainable, build for the long term.

While we are re-launching the service, we only accept new members through invitation.

This website offers motivational and interactive class activities to learn more about 3D shapes. It also shows how to calculate surface area and volume, as well as other mathematical properties about the 3D shapes. Specific topics include surface area and volume, platonic solids, Euler's Theorem, and several others. The Test Your Skills link provides an interactive quiz complete with photos, illustrations, and animations. The About This Interactive link provides standards, goals, lesson ideas, and more.

GeoGebra is a free and multi-platform dynamic mathematics software for schools that joins geometry, algebra and calculus. It received several international awards including the European and German educational software awards. It is open sourced, can be web-based or installed locally. Very similar to Geometer's sketchpad.

Google has some free software that some Math Teachers may want to look at and use with their classes. The software is called SketchUp and it’s a simple but powerful tool for quickly and easily creating, viewing and modifying your 3D ideas.lick on a shape and push or pull it to create your desired 3D geometry. Experiment with color and texture directly on your model. Real-time shadow casting lets you see exactly where the sun falls as you model. Select from thousands of pre-drawn components to save time drawing. I was very impressed with the ease of use of the software along with the video tutorials and user guide that is on the site. It’s worth taking a look if you teach Geometry.

Complete the quest to see how well you know your quadrilaterals.

Design a quilt by clicking on the squares. Each square has 6 possible positions.
Change COLORS by clicking the color palettes
Make a quilt by clicking REPEAT, REFLECT or ROTATE

The students will measure the diameter and circumference of many circles and will estimate their relationship. By doing so, they should discover the approximate value of pi. By discovering it on their own they should feel rewarded and gain a deeper understanding of the fundamental concept of pi.

Pentominos are the names of shapes created by 5 squares connected together. The objective of the puzzle is to place all pentominos inside the square after marking 4 boxes to remain empty.

Many cultural designs are based on mathematical principles. This software will help students learn standards-based mathematics as they simulate the original artifacts, and develop their own creations.

Video tutorials and interactive activities with audio. Strands include: Numbers and Operations, Patterns and Relations, Geometry, Statistics and Probabiity
Activities - Adding and subtracting Fractions, Fractions and Equivalent Fractions, Fractions, Multiply & Divide, Percent., Equations, Pattern Puzzles, Area

This activity can be used to:recognize and explore the properties of tessellations, identify and examine symmetry in geometric figures,describe, and classify polygons, examine the role of mathematics in society and nature
