Internet Minute Award On Monday, January 18th, 1999, Math Goodies was featured on Internet Minute with Harley Carnes on WCBS Newsradio 880.

Math Goodies - today on Internet Minute.

Anything that gets kids engaged in math is a good thing. And when you can get them not only engaged, but enjoying it, you're hitting a home run. Mrs. Glosser's Math Goodies are designed to do that. It's a web site run by Gisele Glosser, focused on interactive math lessons. The lessons are mostly aimed at 5th through 8th grade students. Each Volume of lessons comes in related groups - like geometry - and includes a set of Challenge exercises.

For example, do you remember how to find the area of a parallelogram or a trapezoid? How about the perimeter of polygons? No? Maybe you and I could benefit from a visit to too. Then, there are things called factors, composite numbers, and exponents.

Incredibly useful site of the dayMath Goodies was reviewed in Yahoo Internet Life on August 11, 2000

Is your child having a tough time with geometry? Maybe it's time for a visit to the Math Goodies site. Choose a topic such as 'Integers' or 'Perimeter & Area of Polygons,' and you'll get interactive lessons with sample problems. You'll also find puzzles, message boards, worksheets, and homework help on this site, targeted mainly at fourth- through ninth-graders but great for anyone who needs a math refresher course on topics from conditional probability to prime numbers.

Math Goodies was reviewed in the October 28, 1999 issue of the World Wide Learn Newsletter.

This award-winning site is home to free interactive math lessons. While primarily geared to the K-12 audience, one can never have enough math skills! (Any of you remember what an integer is?) Lesson plans, puzzles, math chats and homeschooling support contribute to this excellent site.


Math Goodies was reviewed by ScienceNetLinks.

The Math Goodies Web site is one of the finest sites of this nature I have ever seen or used... I found the questions challenging and the explanations comprehensive and clear... For the teacher, especially a new teacher, areas can be found for Interdisciplinary Studies, Classroom Gems, and Real World Connections. I found the last one of great value because Mathematics teachers are always looking for real world connections in terms that a student can identify with. This helps answer the old complaints of, “Why do we have to do this?"... In conclusion, let me restate that this is a great site. I plan to use it for myself and with my students. I am also giving the site address to all the Math teachers in my department. There is definitely something for everyone concerned with Mathematics (i.e., Students, Parents, and Teachers) in this terrific site. — Robert Burchell, Paramus Catholic High School
