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.

Beautiful! This is why I love this area.
Bright and creative kids, support at the ready, and another great idea comes to fruition.

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.
