3 ACT Math Lessons
3 ACT Math lessons present a different take on problem solving. A mathematics problem is presented in three acts, or phases. Act I serves as the introduction to the problem using a short video or image. As part of Act II, the information needed to solve the problem is provided. The resolution to the problem is revealed in ACT III. All 3 ACT math problems are freely available.
We’re offering to all our students a curated source for videos, practice, and activities. The site is based on the Québec Secondary Math program. Major concepts are broken down and links to online resources are provided for the individual topics making it easy to find exactly what you need. The site will be updated regularly and will eventually feature practice exam questions based on the final exams for students to practice.
CK-12 is a non-profit site that offers resources in Math and many other subjects. Modules include instruction and practice through videos and interactive activities.
