Math Anchor Charts

Today I was asked by a teacher about creating some Anchor Charts to help student learning in mathematics.  It got me exploring and here are some of the initial findings from my search.  (On a side note, if you haven't heard of Pinterest yet, it is like a digital corkboard that many teachers are using to share visuals on all sorts of educational topics.  Think "Live Binder" but with images as opposed to website/documents.)  Here are a few to get you started...

Small Number and the Old Canoe from The IRMACS Centre on Vimeo.

Filed under: "Where were YOU all this time???" or what is sometimes termed as WTF?, I amazingly failed to notice this math website until this year:  Math Catcher.  I will let Math Catcher's own description speak for itself:  The Math Catcher: Mathematics Through Aboriginal Storytelling project includes the creation of a series of short animated films that accompany picture books, as well as the development of related activities that introduce math topics and techniques through stories that follow Aboriginal storytelling formats and contain elements of Aboriginal traditions and cultures.

I've added Math Catcher to the Math Websites for Teachers Link List on the right sidebar.
