Math Fortress

Stumbled upon this site and surely wish I had this when I was struggling through secondary math! Math Fortress provides videos and teaching supports for Algebra I and II, Geometry, Pre-Calculus, Calculus I, II, III, Linear Algebra, Differential Equations and the GRE. The resources are free, but you’ll notice a Paypal icon in the upper right hand corner…it’s there for donations to keep the site active/updated, but it is NOT required for use.


Youth on the Move

Just learned of this cool resource today! Definitely worth the time to dig through!!! Youth on the Move

A new website from the Institute for Community Inclusion, University of Massachusetts at Boston, Youth on the Move offers information on this crucial transition from high school to the adult world. Learn how to plan comprehensively, support young people with disabilities to become more independent, and help them use their interests and skills to guide their job search. There’s also a Transition Timeline to show professionals exactly what steps are essential between the ages of 14 and 18.

This website is designed to provide information, strategies, and resources to transition navigators-teachers, counselors, family members, and community providers-to guide youth on the move.

  • STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Math)
  • ELL (English Language Learners)
  • SE (Special Education)
  • RTI (Response to Intervention)
  • E (elearning)
  • EI (Early Intervention)

Study Skills

With the onset of fall semesters in both secondary and post secondary learning, I thought I’d share a link regarding study skills. I’ve mentioned CAST previously, but directing you in this post to a particular book Learning to Read in the Computer Age and in particular, Chapter 3 Developing Reading Strategies. Great insight for teachers and parents for helping to develop strong(er) study skills for our students/kids…and maybe ourselves as well!


VoCal

VoCal is another cool app for iPhone and iPad. This isn’t a stand alone calendar system, BUT it is a voice created audio reminder system and a voiced calendar. Record your voice to set an alarm clock or task reminder…no need to type! The Lite version (free) has ads or you can pay $5.99 for the full app with no adds and unlimited reminders!


myHomeWork

Here’s a free app for iPhone and iPad, well, the app is free, but it’ll cost you $1.99 to create an online account. You’ll be able to track classes, homework, tests and assignments and since it’s on the web, you can sync and access your info from your desktop/laptop at home at  myhomeworkapp.com
