Content rich school maths site full of interesting stuff. Cartoons, articles, quotes, animations. Some great maths java games to try, including the fiendish Pannerotto, a proof without words of Pythagoras by David King, books, biographies of mathematicians etc. But perhaps the most interesting thing is the weekly Boardshot direct from Mr Whitfield's lessons. Whatever next, online video links to lessons? Don't be late!
