ThatQuiz is a free online resource for math practice and testing. It was written in the summer of 2004 and later expanded according to teacher needs and requests. The original goal was to provide easily accessible software for schools which were not fully utilizing the computers they had in their classrooms. The site has also become popular for students who want extra math practice at home. Although the first tests available were most suitable for elementary school students, new areas have been added for higher grades: algebra, angles, triangles, probability and geometry.
This presentation highlights some of the key features and educational applications for Google Earth, Google Sky, and Google Maps. It includes links to tutorials, videos, general and educational resources for all three of these Google applications. Attached is a Powerpoint version of our presentation.
