I like this simple resource for students to practice exponentials. It is just a matching activity but the kind of thing that would take a bit of time to create and low and behold, someone has created it and shared it. I love the internet. For the actual slides, follow this link.

Dan Meyer's 2009 Annual Report from Dan Meyer on Vimeo.

Vi Hart's latest symmetry installment. Sphereflakes continues on her journey dealing with symmetry and creating snowflakes. This time she does a great job of talking about symmetry by cutting through solids with planes. That part could even be used for some 3D plane discussions in Calculus & Vectors.

I have pointed out the falling dominoes chain reaction before but now, it seems, we have some more rigorous mathematics to explain why it happens. Of course you can also look at Dan Meyer's 3Act task that breaks up the video seen below and eventually asks how many dominoes would be needed to knock down a domino the size of a skyscraper (http://mrmeyer.com/threeacts/dominoskyscraper/).
