List of web-based Mathematics resources:

1. Khan Academy: https://www.khanacademy.org/math
2. TED Ed Lessons: http://ed.ted.com/lessons?category=mathematics
3. PBS Learning Media: http://www.pbslearningmedia.org/
4. teAchnology: http://www.teach-nology.com/subjects/math/
5. The Math Forum: http://mathforum.org/
6. MIT OPEN COURSE WARE: https://ocw.mit.edu/courses/mathematics/
7. Interactive Mathematics: http://www.intmath.com/

For the list of annotated web-based resource list I focused my research on resources that would help Mathematics teachers and students. I have researched seven Mathematics web resources and evaluated them against level, currency, coverage, accuracy, and objectivity. Please find in the following link a table that summarizes my evaluation of these web resources.

With Khan Academy, I found short lectures in the form of YouTube videos as well as the tools for educators most useful for both teachers and students. All resources are available for free to anyone around the world. These resources cover almost all the topics of Mathematics and they are suitable for delivery of separate lessons, a unit, and a course. Other features such as progress tracking, practice exercises, and a variety of tools for teachers.
I liked the videos of TED Education that introduce new topics to learners in an exciting, curiosity-inspiring way. I analyzed the lessons that represent collaborations between expert educators and animators. TED Education supports instructors in their course delivery through a library of video lessons and a platform for lesson design.
As a teacher, I was impressed by the productivity tools that PBS Learning Media offers for teachers. Some of these tools are Lesson Builder, Storyboard, and Quiz Maker. With these tools, students can deeply engage with content. Moreover, educators can create personalized, interactive activities for students that can be used in the classroom or as homework assignments. I stopped by the tool Storyboards where students 13 or older can bring their digital projects to life through video, images, and text. Every resource of PBS Learning Media showcases the subject, grade level and alignment to national and Common Core standards.
I explored the repository of worksheets in the web resource teAchnology that address the daily needs of teachers and students. These worksheets cover a wide range of topics in different levels. Moreover, teAchnology presents a collection of worksheet makers, rubric makers, lesson plan makers, and graphic organizer makers that help teachers in their mission.

I recommend the website Math Forum for communication throughout the mathematical community. Groups can use mailing lists, Web-based discussion areas, ask-an-expert services, See Discussions, Bridging Research and Practice (BRAP) and the T2T Teachers’ Lounge. The site offers thorough images related to mathematics and also gives some insights about the math behind the images.

MIT OpenCourseWare (OCW) is a web-based publication of virtually all MIT course content. Video lectures using YouTube as the primary digital video streaming platform accompany the text and Pdf versions of the course material.
The educational materials support undergraduate and graduate-level courses.

Interactive Mathematics offers comprehensive Math Lessons in HTML format that covers the majority of Mathematics topics that support various units and courses. IntMath is a summary of the various interactive graphs, calculators, and other manipulatives. Most of these interactive applets work on mobile devices.

    Hi Yehia,

    These are some outstanding math-based websites! I love how you linked the course discussion of the MOOCs and used one as a resource (the MIT OpenCourseWare). I agree with you that the Khan website is an outstanding and diverse resource. I hadn’t visited the PBS Learning Media website before but I can see myself using it in my planning! Thank you for introducing me to it. I enjoyed visiting all of your links and reading your critique of them. Thank you for your helpful post!

    Best regards,

    Andrea

    Good evaluation Yehia. I did mine from a science perspective and looked at a lot of the same sites you did. When I was looking into the MIT resources I came across a project that they did called “MIT + k12 videos”. You can find all of them on the PBS Learning Media site, just put it into the search. I know they had a lot of good science stuff in there, they may also have some good math resources in there as well. Check it out when you have time.
