I have listed below some resources that I have used in developing the lessons for an algebra class (Essentials of Mathematics). The 4 units we cover in this class are (1) Solving Linear Equations, (2) Graphing Linear Equations, (3) Rules of exponents and polynomials, & (4) Factoring/Solving Polynomials. The sites below include many more lessons that I did not cover in this class (e.g. piece-wise functions, probability). Feel free to download the template that will help you when creating your lessons. Here’s a flow chart to give you a sense for how my class works.

**http://www.graphingstories.com ** Show students a short video during class. They have to gaph the situation. ( I used graphingstories.com/pwQ and graphingstories.com/21f for introducing functions.)

**http://threeacts.mrmeyer.com** A spreadsheet view of the 3-Act tasks. I used http://mrmeyer.com/threeacts/pyramidofpennies/ and http://threeacts.mrmeyer.com/duelingdiscounts/

**http://www.101qs.com** Contains several of the 3-act problems plus many more interesting problems. You need to register to download the lessons. It’s free.

**http://www.mathalicious.com **I used several lessons from this site (Domino Effect, iCost). While they do have a handful of free lessons, I do pay a small monthly charge for full access. It’s totally worth it. They are constantly adding new lessons and just recently did a complete overhaul on their site. I will often take their lesson and slightly modify it. For example, I used the Domino Effect lesson, which has a 30 second video of someone ordering a pizza from the Domino’s website. I just redid the video (and slightly modified the lesson) using my zip code when ordering. I find that to make the lessons my own, I need to re-edit them. But you don’t have to.

**http://www.numberphile.com/ ** Some really thought-provoking videos on a range of mathematical topics. For example: How does the sum of 1 + 2 + 3+ 4…=-1/12? Problems with zero; Zeno’s paradox. These videos often end with a questions to ponder.

**http://www.cyclesoflearning.com/** Ramsey Musallam’s homepage. He is the pioneer (if not the creator) of the **Explore-Flip-Apply** paradigm. He has several resources and ideas on productivity and inspiration for course content. Although he teaches Chemistry, ~~many~~ most of his resources can be used for any area. He has a great list of tools that can be used to help you in your development. He also posts semi-regularly on his blog.
