http://mathforum.org/kenken/

The Math Forum and KenKen have new math games in the works!

While we prepare them, we invite you to play KenKen puzzles
interactively -- no login required.

Fresh 4x4 and 5x5 challenges post daily, along with solutions
from the previous day.

MIT+K12

http://k12videos.mit.edu/

An open platform for educational videos launched last week.

The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), in
collaboration with Khan Academy, invites teachers to submit
requests for the demonstrations of scientific principles or
experiments you need in your primary and secondary classrooms.
Under the premise that "the best spokespeople in the battle to
engage young people in science and engineering are other young
people," MIT undergraduates then accept your requests through a
proposal process before using the Institute's laboratory and
other resources to respond with original instructional
video segments.

Check out the math videos already requested here:

http://k12videos.mit.edu/taxonomy/term/33/assignment

Don't see an assignment you need for your teaching? Want to
work together with MIT undergradutes to make and crowd-curate
STEM videos? Create an account and join the effort:

Now taking place: math education conversation of the hour

"It is an injustice. Math always seems to take a back seat to
Reading/Literacy/ELA. Maybe we need more names for math so it
will sound just as important!"

Math Teachers of New York State's Math Honor Society
