Spring break came and went so quickly. School is back in full swing now. Students in high school are starting to prepare for the AP and SAT tests. This is the first time I see my daughter studying seriously for a test.

I begin to really appreciate the project-based method of teaching and learning. Can math be taught using a project-based system?

Did you know that students can earn points on our site? Once they earn enough points, they can get fun prizes, selected through our website. I want to congratulate two students from Tennessee who claimed prizes in the past month! Check out the prizes we offer at Points and Prizes.
