Building Smarter ways to use the SMART Board and Support Math Core Content K-8
http://www.kenton.k12.ky.us/SmartBoard/smartmath.htm

Various interactive activities arranged by category:
http://www.shodor.org/interactivate/activities/

Use this to demonstrate translations, rotations, reflections of squares, triangles, parallelograms on a grid, this is a really nicely done site (I do not believe that you can draw your own figure from scratch, but hitting the “new triangle/square, etc” button brings up a different one each time)

.

This is a pretty neat graphing calculator simulator (similar to the Ti-83/84) in functionality. Use the onscreen buttons to enter y=formulas (be sure to turn the checkbox on to show the graph), use data points, or include the coefficients a,b, and/or c into your formula to allow them to change “on the fly”. For example, use Y1=a*x+b so students can use the sliders at the bottom of the page to observe the effect on the line immediately

Create a Graph is a basic online graphing tool – only does the basics so it is easy to use – graphs can be printed out or copied into a word document
http://nces.ed.gov/nceskids/graphing/classic/

A y=mx+b interactive graphing page. Students can change the values of m and b to see what happens

A virtual Geoboard - students take the rubber bands and stretch them across pegs, has a measurement tool to show slope and distance as well
http://nlvm.usu.edu/en/nav/frames_asid_172_g_2_t_3.html

Change the rate of filling of a tank and observe the changes on the graph

A Quia quiz on Graphing terms has four activities: matching, a concentration matching, flash cards and a word search (features definitions that students must find the words in the puzzle) – all are interactive
http://www.quia.com/jg/65535.html

A word type problem on reading graphs for cost per minute, has slider to change location on graph
http://standards.nctm.org/document/eexamples/chap6/6.2/index.htm#applet

Another word type problem with real life type numbers on eliminating medicine from the human body
http://standards.nctm.org/document/eexamples/chap7/7.2/index.htm

Creates a line of best fit for given data points – students can enter their own data points and estimate the best fit or have the computer generate one
http://illuminations.nctm.org/ActivityDetail.aspx?ID=146

This has some real life data and ides for lesson plans, but is not interactive
