Illuminations: Resources for Teaching & Learning Mathematics!!

Illuminations is a site created by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) filled with resources, activities, games, lesson plans & interactivities to help teachers teach and students learn mathematics and math concepts.  This site has a lot of resources you could use in your classroom for students from Kindergarten to 12th Grade.

My favorites are the 107 different online activities to help make math come alive right in front of your students.  Instead of simply discussing fractions as parts of a whole, Illuminations allows students to actually see fractions visually represented and manipulate them to further understand their relationships to one another.

Illuminations also has over 600 lesson plans, all free to use, that include everything you need to implement in your classroom as soon as today (with a little planning of course).
