This site employs relevant, engaging, and meaningful lesson plans and materials. The site also employs interactive teaching tools to encourage collaborative learning.

Technical Remarks:

Users will need the current flashplayer to utlize many of the interactive tools, but the site is easy to navigate.

I like some of the information presented and will be looking at using it in one of my courses along with adding to an online component.

Technical Remarks:

A fill-in version of some of the documents would be recommended for online students.

NCTM has created a wonderful resource for teachers and students.  There are lesson plans, interactive games and opportunities for learning for both in-service and pre-service teachers as well as their students.  Take a look at this one!
