For May 15, 2006: Here's a resourceful teacher story for you: An Australian primary teacher needed a reference resource for her students. In her quest to meet that need, she learned Flash and created the Maths Dictionary for Kids, a dictionary that is animated, interactive, and allows students to practice. Click on "billion" and discover that you have 10 billion brain cells working for you right now! (Doesn't that make you feel resourceful!) Roll your mouse over the world time zone chart and you instantly know the time for that part of the world. Over 500 terms are explained in simple language. Every math teacher should bookmark this Web site.
