1) Free Math Lessons, Videos, & Practice Quizzes
As always, my Pre-Algebra, Algebra 1, Algebra 2, and Geometry online math lessons are all free. The lessons include practice quizzes with instant feedback and helpful videos with examples. Many of the lessons have printable study guides that would be helpful for students going through the lesson on their own at home.
2) Self-Checking Google Activities
It's easy to make Google quizzes that are graded automatically. They're a great way to assess learning and give feedback while teaching remotely. You can quickly learn how to make your own Google quizzes or check out my Google activities if you're looking for editable activities that are self-grading.
3) Digital Boom Cards
Boom Cards are digital, self-checking task cards. Students are shown one question at a time and get instant feedback on their answers, which makes them a great option for online learning. Boom Learning is now offering free Ultimate subscriptions for schools that need to close due to the virus. You can reach out to email@example.com for more details. (Never heard of Boom Cards? Here are the Top 7 Reasons to Love Boom Cards.) There are lots of free decks of cards available or you'll be able to create your own with the free Ultimate subscription.
4) Use Zoom for Online Meetings
Don't have access to Google Hangouts? Zoom is another great option to host an online meeting with your students. Their free plan allows you to have up to 100 people in a meeting at once. Zoom can also record your meetings so you can easily upload the video online for students to access.
5) Kahoot & Quizizz
Have you tried making Kahoots? Kahoot is currently offering free premium features for schools facing closures. Students love being able to play live against each other or you can have them complete the quizzes at their own pace. You can also search Quizizz for free gamified quizzes or create your own.
6) Additional Online Tools
