    National Council of Teachers of Mathematics

    What's the best way to teach young people about geometry? Or general data analysis? The National Council of Teachers of of Mathematics (NCTM) has a few ideas on the subject and they have brought them together in the Core Math Tools Suite. This downloadable suite of interactive software tools for algebra, geometry, statistics, and related topics can be used in a range of educational settings. The General Purpose Tools area contains five tools that require strategies and skills that are highly applicable to a range of analytical skills. The site also contains How-To Pages, along with Advanced Apps such as the "Ranked Choice Voting" app, which can be used to determine voting outcomes based on various ranked choice voting methods.
