Websites such as Khan or MathTV.com also help students "hold on" to the moment they understand a subject before it slips away. They can relive that moment through video instruction.

Bright and creative kids, support at the ready, and another great idea comes to fruition.

Kudos all around!

Great idea, student driven teaching, this can bring a great deal of good for our schools. Is this only for high school or lower grades as well.
