Leyden Lessons

The internet is an incredible resource for online lessons and tutorials, so learning doesn't have to happen 7:30 am to 2:30 pm. We will start to list resources for students here as we find them, but because this is a wiki, anyone can add content. If you know of any resources, please share them.


1. Khan Academy: There are almost 2000 YouTube lessons posted on such topics as basic math, algebra, geometry, calculus, statistics, chemistry, history, and economics. It's amazing. Khan has expanded to include quizzes and formative assessments. 


2. SAS Curriculum Pathways: SAS Curriculum pathways offers free online curriculum modules in each of English, math, science, social studies, and Spanish. They can be used as demos, or as practice for students.
