Khan Academy

My stepmother sent me this today:

I've only looked at half of one video, but I've already got ants in my pants to share it with you. The one I watched on linear equations was anti-climactic: procedural, superficial, kind of the opposite of what I want to do with my students. But I bet it's helping somebody, maybe lots of somebodies, and maybe it's of interest to you.

My friend Amy just clued me in to this:
"this dude was on NPR recently. i think it's pretty awesome, especially considering the whole thing was borne out of his distance-tutoring for his cousin."
