Mathalicious: Make Math Authentic
Math can be extremely authentic for students when taught correctly. Mathalicious may be a site that can help teachers find great connections to math content. It was featured on the Freakonomics Blog on the NY Times here. The site's self proclaimed philosophy is: "Math isn’t something you learn, but a tool you use to learn about other things." It has a variety of great lessons for middle school and high school students. (Think: How big is your Plasma? How does your xBox work? etc. etc.) It appears that the site is still being constructed, and I would definitely keep "an eye on it" for more great resources in the future.
