 IMPACT IIThe Teachers Network
TeachNet is a World Wide Web site for teachers sponsored by IMPACT IIThe
Teachers Network, the premier nationwide, educational, independent nonprofit organization that
supports innovative teachers who exemplify professionalism, independence, and creativity in public
school systems.
I recommend the site if you're looking for general lesson ideas and ways to get kids interested in math (or other disciplines for that matter).
