Math Can Take You Places

(Grades 4-6)


(Middle School & Up)
“What does this mean? When will I use this?”
If you’re a math teacher, you’ve probably heard these questions before. We’re here to help you answer them.
At Mathalicious, we believe that math isn’t something to learn, but a tool to learn about other things. Our mission is to help transform the way math is taught by providing you with the best, most meaningful and most relevant math content available. Our lessons are aligned to traditional state standards but, unlike most content, emphasize conceptual understanding through engaging real-world applications.
What does this mean for you and your students?
It means you can use linear equations to pick the right cell phone plan, and percents to get healthier. It means you can use proportions to compare the iPhone and the iPad, and explore whether the Olympics are fair. Our approach means that you as a teacher can foster real conversations, real learning about topics that students really care about.
And best of all, Mathalicious means that math can be…fun again.

Math Cats

At this site, designed "to promote open-ended and playful explorations of important math concepts," students will have so much fun, they might not even notice they’re learning math.

What's this fuss about true randomness?
Perhaps you have wondered how predictable machines like computers can generate randomness. In reality, most random numbers used in computer programs are pseudo-random, which means they are a generated in a predictable fashion using a mathematical formula. This is fine for many purposes, but it may not be random in the way you expect if you're used to dice rolls and lottery drawings.
RANDOM.ORG offers true random numbers to anyone on the Internet. The randomness comes from atmospheric noise, which for many purposes is better than the pseudo-random number algorithms typically used in computer programs. People use RANDOM.ORG for holding drawings, lotteries and sweepstakes, to drive games and gambling sites, for scientific applications and for art and music. The service has existed since 1998 and was built and is being operated by Mads Haahr of the School of Computer Science and Statistics at Trinity College, Dublin in Ireland.
As of today, RANDOM.ORG has generated 937.7 billion random bits for the Internet community.
Coin Flipper will give you heads or tails in many currencies
Dice Roller will roll a single die or multiple dice
Playing Card Shuffler will draw cards from multiple shuffled decks
Integer Generator makes random numbers in configurable intervals
Sequence Generator will randomize an integer sequence of your choice
Integer Set Generator makes sets of non-repeating integers
Gaussian Generator makes random numbers to fit a normal distribution
Decimal Fraction Generator makes numbers in the [0,1] range with configurable decimal places
Raw Random Bytes are useful for many cryptographic purposes
