As I get closer and closer to graduation and the future of teaching math, I am starting to gather valuable resources that will enhance the learning of my students. I went searching for websites that help explain or aid the teaching of modular arithmetic in a high school setting. I found the a wiki site called High School Extensions of Modular Arithmetic and I thought it did a nice job providing definitions and examples that made the information more meaningful to students. I especially liked the beginning where it discusses clock-arithmetic and then relates it back to modular arithmetic using examples. I thought this was a great way to help students see that modular arithmetic is not something foreign to them. They have been using it all along but they just didn’t know it.

Here is the link to the site:
