Hey mommies:

I am always reading and I just found out that you can get access to most the course materials from MIT for free online. MIT OpenCourseWare | Free Online Course Materials

So essentially you can get a degree in quantum physics for free! LOL. Just incase you have advanced science loving Teenagers this might be interesting for them.

I am digging into the Latin and love it. Any free sources are great.

Hey, wow!
I am a bit late in coming across this post since I joined this forum recently but this looks so good..thank you!

I wish to add to this - for those of you who want your kids to grow into advanced science loving teenagers in the future ;-) .. Here's something that can get them interested in the subject in the early years itself, and that too for free: Hiccup's Science Workshop

Anybody out there who can let me know about similar Math resources as well? Would be a great help - thank you in advance.

Beth, have you heard of Khan Academy? They are an online video-based math academy with lessons from addition and subtraction all the way through upper-level math.

Another great website I found out recently was Beestar. It provides a ton of free worksheets for various subjects. I've been using it for my daughter and also my students at the after-school program. It also helps my daughter and students to track their own progress and find enjoyable worksheets that cater to their needs. It definitely helps strengthen their weaknesses and gives the more confidence on tackling higher levels and more difficult problems.
