Math and Science Resources

Today I wanted to share a couple Math and Science resource websites.

The first is Khan Academy which "is a not-for-profit organization with the mission of providing a high quality education to anyone, anywhere. We have 1000+ videos on YouTube covering everything from basic arithmetic and algebra to differential equations, physics, chemistry, biology and finance which have been recorded by Salman Khan." It's amazing how many links and resources this one site has and makes me think about how great it would be if more of our lectures were shared online.

The second is 10 Ideas for Innovative Math Instruction from the Innovative Educator blog. "Innovative educators know that math doesn't have to be boring or abstract. There are several innovative ideas for spicing up your math class." These vary from lower to upper school resources.
