`In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:NearpodDesmosIXLBlooketGoogle JamboardGimkit`
```.css-47miec{margin-top:0rem;}We will be using the third-party websites listed below that provide interactive, fun opportunities for building mastery and fluency of math concepts and skills:
Nearpod: Educational, interactive tool for presenting my own slide-show lessons and activities (such as matching, drag-and-drop, etc.) I will post a direct link in the Zoom chat that will take students directly into the lesson, they only need to enter their first name or nickname so that I know who is who within the lesson. * No account or personal information needed.
Google Jamboard: A great interactive tool for collaborative learning and sharing ideas. I will send a direct link in the Zoom chat that will allow students to enter directly into the specific Jamboard without any kind of sign-up * No account or personal information needed
Blooket and Gimkit: Students love playing these fun, fast-paced games with math question banks that I am able to create and tailor  to the needs of the class. The report I see after each game serves as a great informal assessment. I will post a direct link in the Zoom chat, students will simply enter their first name of nickname and begin playing the game. *No account or personal information needed (though with parental permission students can set up free accounts to save their progress and personalized "Blooks" or characters)
Google Slides: I will usually use Google Slides to present lessons through the screen share function, but may at times give students the link for activities or games that I have created. *No account or personal information needed
Desmos: An online graphing calculator and so much more! Fun activities that we can work on together as a class that really make math concepts come alive! I will post a direct link in the Zoom chat that will take students directly into the lesson, they only need to enter their first name or nickname so that I know who is who within the lesson. * No account or personal information needed.
IXL: A comprehensive math skill practice website. I will provide students with individual login information (user name and password), so no separate student or parent account is needed and no personal information is shared ```
