Help Wanted: Creative Thinkers!

It is time to unleash your imagination and create the ultimate math classroom! Riverton Middle School, in Huntsville, Alabama, wants to develop a state-of-the-art math lab, and they want your ideas. They are creating a lab for teachers to take their classes for large-group, small-group, and individualized instruction. They want to remediate, challenge, and enrich their students. In the planning phase, the sky is the limit! Once they have a plan in place, they will begin the search for funding through grants, fund-raising, and donations.

The room is large enough to divide into four areas:
  1. Presentation area - smart board, projector, narrow tables, responders
  2. Small group tables
  3. Large tables for whole-class group work
  4. Fifteen computers
The room has an office with windows, a sink, and great storage areas. There is also video recording equipment available.

They are looking for recommendations for the best software, manipulatives, and other materials for sixth through eighth graders. What would you include in The Ultimate Math Classroom?
