On-Line Communtiy

When researching activities to use with my math class, I found Ask Dr. Math as a helpful on-line community. The web-site had interesting games and activities, but also had a resource where math teachers and students could ask for help with math concepts. The tutors who responded to the questions answered by writing step-by-step instruction of how to work through the problem. Not only is it helpful for a teacher to receive an explanation of how to work through a math problem that they find troublesome, but they are also given a clear way to teach the concept.
