A Fun Selection of Mathematical Webquests

Webquests utilize the Internet and all the world-wide-web’s resources in order to obtain information to be used in a group project. A math Webquest focuses the project on math and uses relevant data to be used in varying mathematical exercises. They also involve students working in cooperation within a group to understand and study mathematics. Most math Webquests involve critical thinking and reasoning in order to reach the right conclusions. This involves problem solving, communication, corrections, representation, and reasoning, which meet the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics process standard.

Webquests are excellent tools for teachers; they offer a different approach and allow students to become more Internet savvy. Teachers can also use the websites available for the creation of webquests that can focus on the needs of the students in any particular classroom.
