Math Links for Week Ending Apr. 22nd, 2016

I made this quick online web sketch for students to practice measuring angles. Often when measuring angles student's are careless when placing the protractor or the read the wrong set of numbers. When you notice kids having this issue, this sketch will allow them to practice measuring angles until they are proficient.

Having just shown some posts from @MrSoClassroom about coding and math, I found myself at @MrAspinall's site with more info about the connection of coding and math. Having just purchased a Sphero, this fit right in and you can really see the connections that he makes to geometry but I see even more connections to proportional reasoning when the kids are making the code. Else ware on the site you can see him connect using math to the "math wars" that are going on. Check it out.

Do you need some help for your students with simple stats and organizing data? Try Furbles. Near as I can tell this is a commercial software but there is a link to a "lite" version here. But it seems like a nice resource you can do to introduce organizing data at any grade level. Thanks to @ColleenYoung for this one.

I was reminded of Calculus the Musical this week. Check out their site for all sorts of goodies but here's a sample on the unit circle. And if you can ever see them live, it's pretty entertaining.

And why not have another math related song, this time it's the fight between Math, Physics, Chemistry and Biology sung to a Star Wars theme.  Thanks to @dilasue4 for this one

Nice animated gif on the generation of sinusoidal functions via a unit circle. I have done this before but it never occured to me to also include the tangent function.
