The Growing Math Resources Library

We have added a Resource Library webpage on our teacher platform, Growing Math. We have also organized the virtual manipulatives page.

What’s in the Resource Library?

Are you looking for something to make your lesson just a little more engaging or to reach that student who didn’t understand the first time? Teachers can now access new lesson plans complete with downloadable slides, accessible videos, and online or downloadable activities. Math video game integration is included! Some teachers are looking for a whole lesson plan. Our resources are also geared toward teachers who have lessons and are just looking for extra resources as a fresh update or experience for their students.

Manipulatives and Cards

Some students learn better when there is a physical component to learning. Manipulatives on our site can be physical objects, like cards, or virtual, with the usage of apps and digital downloadables. Our cards and manipulatives page includes augmented reality apps and the cards to use with them, printable flash cards and online flash-card activities. English, Spanish, Lakota and Dakota languages are supported.

Video Library

Our video library is organized by three topics. Teachers can select a category below to view videos by sub-topics (e.g. fractions or idioms):

Virtual Manipulatives

What can you manipulate online? The Virtual Manipulatives section features two random sample simulators for statistics class and digital graph paper for plotting data and instructions in online charts.

Probability and Fruit

Random sample of fruit and probability – Teachers or students can set the amount of each type of fruit in four baskets for a total of 20 fruits. Students will learn probabilities by clicking to select a random fruit sample from the basket. They can view the probability for the amount of each fruit. Students can learn with this tool individually, in groups, or as a class.

Convert a Fraction to a Decimal

Random sample for fractions to convert to decimals – This page generates four random fractions from a bag of 12 pieces of candy for red, green, yellow and purple candy. Students can check their conversion from fraction to decimals by clicking the CHECK button. They click TRY AGAIN to generate a new set of four random fractions.
