    Sometimes if I want something more straightforward than a puzzle book to finish my homework, I go to ask the folks at MathCrunch http://mathcrunch.com/ for help with my homework. Turnover rate is quite fast but I wish they also handled computer science questions.

  2. So appreciating “Becoming Invisible.”

    “It is necessary for the teacher to guide the child without letting him feel her presence too much, so that she may always be ready to supply the desired help, but may never be the obstacle between the child and his experience.” Maria Montessori

    “The most difficult thing to make clear to the new teacher is that because the child progresses, she must restrain herself and avoid giving directions, even if at first they are expected; all her faith must repose in his latent powers.” Maria Montessori
