It’s Monday, April 24, 2017, and time for **Math**** **at *ClickSchooling!*

* *

**Recommended Website:**

(mypages.iit.edu/~smile/index.html)

**Age Range: 5-18 **(Grades K-12, with parental supervision)

This website archives lessons from the Science and Mathematics Initiative for Learning Enhancement (SMILE) program that trained teachers and educators in effective classroom and lesson presentations. Participants contributed **tried-and-true lesson plans in Mathematics (as well as Biology, Chemistry and Physics) for elementary and high school grades that you can print out and use for free**.

When you get to the website you’ll see a brief introduction and an icon menu. Click on the RED circle with the word “Mathematics” underneath it. A new page will open containing a menu of math lessons divided into the following categories:

- Geometry and Measurement
- Patterns and Logic
- Probability and Statistics
- Recreational and Creative Math
- Practical and Applied Math
- Arithmetic
- Graphs and Visuals
- Algebra and Trigonometry
- Miscellaneous

Click on any lesson and a new page opens with the objectives, a list of materials required, and instructions or strategies on how to present the lesson or activity.

The lessons and activities are not obviously sorted by grade range – so you’ll need to read through the titles to determine which ones will be better suited for your particular child/student.

There are no bells and whistles here, and no multi-media enticements. This site just offers **classroom-tested lessons and activities that you can print out and tweak for use offline at home**.

Just FYI: We opened quite a few lessons and found an occasional “rogue” incomplete lesson. Don’t let that deter you from using this resource.
