Thank you to those of you who were able to join the webinar on resources for teaching math remotely! The presentation part of the webinar is now posted below for those of you who missed it. Boom Learning will upload a video that includes the Q&A portion soon and I will link to that once it's available.
Links and free products mentioned in the webinar are posted below, as well as a few additional resources I think you might also be interested in.
Math Instruction Ideas
1) Kate's Math Lessons: Free math lessons with videos and practice quizzes. These lessons are always free and available for you to use with your students.
2) EdPuzzle: Make a video interactive by adding in your own questions or notes. This is a great way to add in pauses to a video where students have to stop and answer questions before continuing. Their Getting Started page has lots of helpful information if you want to learn more about using existing EdPuzzles or making your own. They have an entire library you can search to see exactly how to create and assign video lessons, see student reports, export grades, and more. Their free version allows you to store up to 20 videos in your account. If you refer another teacher, they increase the number of videos you can store. There's also a Pro version available for schools to purchase that includes unlimited uploads.
Digital Math Activities
1) Google Forms: You can turn a Google Form into a quiz that's graded automatically! You can use this Free Activity for Google Drive that I've created as a template and edit to fit your needs. Or read How to Create Self-Grading Quizzes with Google Drive for step-by-step directions on making your own.
2) Go Formative: You can use this website to turn a paper worksheet into a digital activity. You can upload a worksheet from your computer or take a picture and upload as an image, then add interactive questions! There's also a great "Show Your Work" option, which inserts a whiteboard for students to draw on or they can upload a picture of their work. Make sure to check out their Quick Start guide if you're new to Go Formative. If you learn best by watching video tutorials, they have helpful videos here. They also have a pretty extensive help center to learn how to Create/Manage Classes, how to Create a Formative, how to Assign a Formative, and more.
You can search the Boom Learning Store for decks that have already been created or can make your own decks of Boom Cards. If your school is closed due to Covid-19, you may be eligible for a free Ultimate account, which includes premium features like student reports and the ability to create an unlimited number of your own decks of Boom Cards.
