  1. I use a wide variety of materials. Mathematics: A Human Endeavor by Harold Jacobs has some good ideas. I have also used some of the "math tricks" from Jacobs' Elementary Algebra textbook. I collect inexpensive puzzle and brainteaser books from bookstores. I love many of the puzzles from this site: http://dkmgames.com; they have given me permission to print from their site and copy for use in my classroom as long as I give them credit. I also like this site: http://www.puzzle-nonograms.com/ I subscribe to the weekly KenKen puzzle collection for teachers through this site:
  2. My favorite-to-teach Co-op class is one I call Thinking Out of the Box. I use a variety of brainteasers, math puzzles, word puzzles, spatial visualization puzzles, logic puzzles, etc. to get the kids to develop critical thinking skills.
  3. Coming in a little late, but have you all seen Paul Hewitt's "60 Questions Physics Students Should Know"? You can find them on the Arbor Science website. (link removed -- just google it) His Next Time Questions are also available on the ArborSci site -- they are great, too.
  4. I recently posted about some FREE online virtual labs that I use in my co-op Physics class. Here are the ones that are specifically related to Chemistry: http://phet.colorado.edu/en/simulations/category/chemistry (I'm not sure why the Wave on a String comes up on the Chemistry page.)
  5. I caught the thief!

  6. MyThreeSons stole 19 cookies from the cookie jar!

    Rules of the game: if you find this (anyone except the cookie thief themselves) then post here to say "I caught the cookie thief! BUT... someone else took two cookies from the cookie jar!" That way we know this player has been caught and we'll look on another profile. Next, copy this entire post and paste it onto someone else's profile (player must have more than 100 posts and must have been active in the last month.) Lastly, change the type in red so that the numbers each increase by one. It will be easier to track that way. Please post your findings in the thread entitled SOMEONE STOLE A COOKIE! Forum Game. Have Fun!
