Christopher Cooley teaches seventh-grade Pre-Algebra and Algebra at Franklin Regional Middle School, which is located in Murrysville, Pennsylvania. His classroom Web site is used daily by him and by his students as a tool for teaching and learning.
How to use the site:
Designed specifically for use with his students, Cooleyâ€™s Web site is not sophisticated graphically, and it takes some exploring to find some of the great ideas described here. But itâ€™s worth the effort. For example, Cooley uses an interactive whiteboard and Web-based manipulatives with his students on a daily basis. Click on the â€œCool e-Infoâ€ link and the â€œElectronic Whiteboardâ€ link to see how this tool is being used. The Links area highlights a variety of interesting Web resources including virtual manipulatives, an interactive math dictionary for students, and more.
