#### Session Description

The most important thing in teaching and learning math is finding it interesting. By interviewing math-teachers and students from different grades, it is found that the use of different interactive teaching resources helps the cognitive learning of a student significantly. The project aims to collect and share the interactive and free teaching and learning math tools such as math games, videos, interactive graphical tools, worksheet, activities for solving math problems, blogs, and math teaching forums etc. These learning kits will help teachers and parents in developing lesson plans as well as will help students to be able to develop skills in mental math, fast calculation, and number-sense. Most importantly, it will bring variety in the learning method. The audience will see different techniques of teaching on the same concepts (such as multiplication) by using the above mentioned tools. They will also get a handout listing of the some of the free resources, helpful key words, and instructions on how to find and use the resources from the internet.

Three learning outcomes:

- 1. Motivate teachers to use more interactive methods to teach math
- 2. Encourage the use of currently available interactive math learning tools
- 3. Help students to get in touch of funny part of math learning
