Professional Development has podcasts, classroom assessments, using data to make decisions, and ESOL. The link to Podcasts (Make Math Matter) is bad. Instead use this Make Math Matter to find 54 free professional development podcasts (4-9 minutes) for middle school and high school math teachers. The first podcast is a discussion of how to make homework appropriate, reasonable, and useful. Classroom Assessment is a two course that can be used for self-study or Continuing Education Units. Using Data To Make Decisions is a five-lesson course that can be used for self-study or CEUs.

Cross-Curricular Activities offers three literature and social studies resources that can be used in math classes. For example, the Lit2Go Mathematics features books and passages that use or are about math. One book, Flatland, offers a reading, PDF, and student activity for each chapter. The passages included many counting and math rhymes.

Technology in the Mathematics Classroom links to five resources. One, Multimedia in the Classroom: Engaging Students, is a course that focuses on using multimedia to help students visualize, synthesize, convey, and construct knowledge. The five-lesson course, which includes a segment on classroom management issues, can be used for "self-study" or CEUs.

In the Math Class has three sections: conic section lesson presentations, cross-curricular activities, and elementary counting activity sheets. The printable activity sheets let students practice counting by fives and tens using dominoes, bundles of sticks, and currency. For example, Pennies Counting by Fives.
