This is a great resource.  It blends mathematics content into an engaging website and most importantly the site is made in a way that fosters curiousity and exploration.  

Technical Remarks:

The embedded applets demonstrate elegant arguments that model for students how to think mathematically.

This is a wonderful assignment. I'm very excited to use it in my Transformation Unit next year. I will let you know how it goes.
