I thought it would be fun (and useful!) to choose upcoming math topics and share resources we love to use with students as we explore these topics. I don’t use everything I find or create every year, but it’s nice to have options at arm’s length when I’m planning and while I’m teaching. Consider this a compilation rather than a comprehensive or cohesive plan. As a matter of fact, I’d love to hear how you use these, or other resources!

*{An aside… I like to keep track of such resources using an Apple Numbers document. So many folks share on Twitter using #iteachmath and #MTBoS, and much of what’s shared may not be immediately relevant for my students, but WILL be relevant eventually. It’s been a lifesaver to add these as they come my way to my own Numbers document so I remember them when I’m planning. I literally copy and paste the links to the resources on the specific day(s) I might use them in the future, so they’re ready to consider as I plan each unit/week/day. *

*Here’s a blank template of the Numbers document. Each document serves as a place to plan a 9-week quarter. Each week in the quarter has its own tab at the top, and since I teach two courses, each course has its own row of cells for the week at hand. If I didn’t have this template, I’d probably forget about 80% of the goodies you and I have already created! Using this template has helped streamline lesson planning!}*

**Today’s #MathResourceRoundup Math 8 topic is the Pythagorean Theorem!**

STAND & TALK – Squares and triangles visual

I created this using Apple’s Keynote, and I love using Apple Classroom to airdrop the image to every student’s iPad so they can “Stand & Talk” about the things they notice. Just used this today!

Are there Pythagorean Theorem resources you use every year that I might have missed?

Have a great idea about how you’d use a resource in a unique way?

*Share your tips here!*

And… I’m curious… *how do you keep track of lesson plans and resources?*
