Slider Bar Upgrades

A slider bar with navigation controls that allow users to fast forward, rewind, stop and play instructional slides was added to the following lessons during the month of March:

  • Algebra II
  • Author's Purpose
  • Customary (US) Measurement
  • Figurative Language
  • Geometry II
  • Percents
  • Telling Time
Standards Alignment Upgrades

Members searching for resources using our state standards alignment search tool now have the ability to view an activity before visiting the site. A screen shot has been added to the description of each resource link. Clicking on the screen shot enlarges the picture for a more detailed view of the site. Please contact us with questions you may have about this upgrade or any of the features in the new standards alignment system!

ICT Games Website

Activities from the website: http://www.ictgames.com were previously included in StarrMatica's resources section. ICT Games has recently added banner advertisements to their activities. This prevents StarrMatica from including them on our site because of our no advertisements policy. Most of the time, the ads can be hidden below the page break when using the activities. Because many of this site's resources are excellent, we wanted you to be aware of them in the hopes they may still be of assistance in your classroom!
