Middle /High School Math Lessons and Activities

This website was recommended by ClickScholar Nancy Hogan. It was developed to provide classroom teachers with interesting activities (along with printable materials) that reinforce and enhance math lessons for high school students. (Some middle school students may enjoy this as well). It can be tweaked for use in the homeschool environment.

The site has lots of content, but can be a little confusing to navigate. When you get to the homepage read the introduction, familiarize yourself with the menu, and then click on “How To Use This Website” to get a good overview of what is available, along with suggestions on how to use the resources that include lessons, quizzes, tests, puzzles, and more. Again, this is designed for classroom use, so you’ll have to adjust it for your homeschool.

The main content is located under the heading:

LIST OF MATH TOPICS – Click on this menu item to find a complete index of the math lessons and activities that include:
