This presentation was put together collaboratively by an international group of teachers. One slide at a time. It grows, slowly, all the time. If you want to contribute contact information for Tom Barrett, a teacher in the UK who started it, is on the last slide.

There are two files you can download below. One is a collection of tools for your SB gallery. Just download it and double click; it will install automatically. It's mostly math stuff but I'm sure other teachers will find valuable stuff there too.


The second file is a Notebook file with over 170 teaching tools you can use in your classes. They can be added to your Notebook Gallery by clicking on them in the Page Sorter view as shown in the screen capture below.
