I know I’m late to the party on this one, but I am really liking Let’s Play Math, a blog by homeschooling mom Denise about teaching math.
Denise has such enthusiasm for the subject, and on the first pass she hit all the right notes for me: emphasizing problem-solving rather than repetitive exercises, understanding the reasons behind the rules, enjoying math, and trying lots of different approaches (as per this quotation from a recent post):
You don’t understand anything until you learn it more than one way.

Now that I have discovered the glories of Google reader (and the annoyance of being unable to post a widget for it on WordPress until I get Eggmaster to do the funky workaround) I am looking forward to starring and sharing lots of her great ideas!
