OVERVIEW: This online dictionary provides a very comprehensive list of terms frequently encountered in middle school math. It gives a brief explanation, examples, and interactive visual aids for each term. The site is aesthetically pleasing and appealing to students since it is so easy to navigate.
Students with a learning disability in math or students who simply struggle with visualizing abstract terms are able to click on the term and see a visual representation of it. The site also allows them to do interactive problems that more clearly explain the concept than a textbook. The examples are very clear and are a great supplement to the definition of the term.
A helpful aspect of this site is that it allows the student to manipulate and create their own examples. For example, if a student is confused by factorization, he or she can type in any given number and observe its factor tree. Additionally, the site is free for all users, so this would be a great homework aid for students with access to a computer.
