The much anticipated BuzzMath iPad app is here! While the official launch is planned for April at the NCTM Annual Conference, we would like to give our subscribers the opportunity to try it out first. The app is now available to download for free at itunes, and can be used with up to 30 of your students. What’s the catch? […]

Sarah Johnson 6th Grade Math Teacher, DSST Network Math Content Leader Denver School of Science and Tech, Stapleton How did you first hear about BuzzMath? Our math department chairperson forwarded a Google link about the program. How do you use BuzzMath with your students? I use it mainly with our highest level students in the 6th grade as a tool […]

At BuzzMath, we understand that teachers are sometimes just looking for a no hassle solution to improve the efficiency and quality of teaching and learning in their own classroom. For that reason we are excited to announce that we now have Classroom Subscriptions for just $150. Teachers can now subscribe directly from our website at http://www.buzzmath.com/schools and will receive a complete […]

Student accounts: A new school year means new sneakers, new notebooks, and a fresh new look for the Student Portfolio. Check out these new features: Student activities have now been organized into two lists of completed and attempted activities, making it easier to see what has been done and what needs to be done. The addition of each student’s avatar […]

How did you first hear about BuzzMath? I first heard about BuzzMath through Dan Meyer on twitter. How do you use BuzzMath with your students? I have a total of 130 students. I use BuzzMath for practice all year long with my pre-algebra (90 students) students. I also use BuzzMath for review and remediation for my Algebra students. BuzzMath was […]

At ISTE this week, Google announced the launch of Apps Packs for Education. App Packs are grade specific packs of Google Chrome apps for schools. BuzzMath is one of the apps in the Middle School App Pack! As a result of being included in this pack, there has been other improvements made to simplify the sign in process. Google sign-in […]

So, you are going to bake muffins. You are feeling ambitious, so you decide to bake two different types. You need to buy chocolate and sugar. You have a budget. How much of each do you buy? My recommendation is to buy none and go to the bakery! But…if a purchase must be made wouldn’t it be nice to understand […]

There’s not always just one solution to a math problem. Sometimes there is a whole set of solutions! This is the case when graphing linear inequalities. In Linear Inequalities students will explore the difference between graphing linear equations and graphing linear inequalities. Students will use their preexisting knowledge of linear equations as a solid foundation for learning about linear inequalities. Interactive […]

Multiplying and dividing one-step inequalities does not seem to pose too many problems for students. That is until they encounter a problem that requires them to multiply or divide by a negative number. This is where simply teaching algorithms will mystify a student. If we teach a student that when we multiply or divide each side of an inequality by […]

Now subscribed schools can easily manage their subscriptions. With MySchool, teachers and administrators can add, remove, and reassign students to different classes. They also have the ability to create and delete classes, add teachers, print activation codes and view the number of available seats for their entire school. Access Manage My School on BuzzMath.com/MySchool or click on the MY SCHOOL button […]

Common Core 6th Grade (6.EE5, 6.EE.6, 6.EE.8) If the solution to x + 3 = 8 is x = 5, then what is the solution to x + 3 > 8? In the activity, Solving and Graphing One-Step Inequalities with Addition and Subtraction students will explore the difference between equations and inequalities before they move on to solving inequalities and […]

Two points walk into a bar just to drop me a line. OK, so maybe the joke isn’t that funny, but you get the point! Graphing Linear Equations allows students to use their prior knowledge of equations and coordinate points to graph linear equations on a grid. Students begin by randomly selecting x values, finding the corresponding y values, plotting […]

During midterms some students may fill their backpacks with notebooks and textbooks in an attempt to cram for each test. While this may not be the best test preparation strategy, it does have the students making statements such as, “This backpack weighs a ton.” Is a backpack a good benchmark for measuring a ton? Of course not! This statement is […]

Common Core – Grade 6 (6.EE.2) Introduction to Writing Algebraic Expressions may be as close as some middle school students come to cracking secret codes. There is a certain intrigue to representing an entire sentence as 4 simple symbols. In the activity, Introduction to Writing Algebraic Expressions, students will begin by reviewing the meaning of a variable. Is there a difference […]

Common Core – Grade 7 (7.G.4) Students, for the most part, seem to have very little trouble finding the area of basic quadrilaterals. Then we throw in a Greek symbol and ask them to find the area of a circle and it gets a little more tricky. Introduction to Area of a Circle, shows students the connection between finding the area […]
