I spent approximately 45 minutes going through the site. There are good articles written by classroom teachers that would be helpful to practitioners.The quality of content:The advice is based on classroom experiences and the opinions of those with much teaching experience. Having said that, there are examples where the opinions do not address the issues in enough depth. For example, the opinions about timed tests are a bit narrow. There is no mention of when a timed test might be of benefit...and there are some instances. Similarly the discussion about the use of calculators does not take graphing calculators into account. It presents an opinion on using calculators as if the only type of calculator is a four-function calculator.The articles written by classroom teachers can provide some good ideas for effective learning activities. For example, I enjoyed reading "Telephone Number Totals" by Bonnie Tank and Lynne Zolli.The parent site, Math Solutions Online at http://www.mathsolutions.com/index.html , offers more resources and information for teachers.Technical Remarks: Very easy to use this web site.
