Math Web Apps

At the Oklahoma Digital Learning Summit last week, an Oklahoma STEM specialist asked me what math products I liked and I mentioned the following:
Elementary Math
i-Ready.com from Curriculum Associates, is a great K-8 adaptive assessment with engaging content.
Dreambox.com is a K-3 game-based adaptive math product.
ST Math from MIND Research Institute is a visual game-based approach used with great results in over 1,200 schools; ST Math is now available on iPad. They are launching their Seattle Math Initiative this Wednesday.
Middle Grade Math
Mangahigh.com is a games-based online math resource that hosts some 70 million math questions answered per month.  Check out Tangled Web—a complementary angles game or watch a video.
ReasoningMind.com, based on the Russian curriculum with a pretty good adaptive engine and a lot of support from the Hoglund Foundation.
Open Secondary Math
CK12.com, famous for dozens of free math and science textbooks, is now an OER object library.   FlexMath.com is becoming a very cool adaptive product—stay tuned for more.
Hippocampus has solid high school math and science content.  NROCmath.org previews an exciting developmental math sequence.
Of course Khan Academy is another free option with over 3,200 videos now covering topics ranging from math, science, history and more.
What else would you add to the list?
 
Disclosure: Curriculum Associates and MIND Research Institute are Getting Smart Advocacy Partners. MangaHigh is Learn Capital Portfolio Company.

For middle and high school math, I would check out yaymath.org and mathtv.com. Both have their unique qualities and I've used both successfully in the classrom.

I think the link to Flexmath.org should be Flexmath.com instead.
