I enjoy teaching out of our math textbooks and using the nifty manipulatives, cross-curricular centers, leveled readers, and other integrated activities which come with our math series. However, sometimes, it’s nice to shake things up a bit and jump on the computers or tablets for a little online math fun. My favorite websites are those that my students and I can use without any preparation or hassle, and they must be FREE. You can start using any of these 7 math websites in your classroom immediately!
