Hope we can share best learning websites and create an academy

Lets offer on the platter….

We plan to build an online or virtual library of Online learning websites (and later Tab/ Mobile Apps). In the long-term, it could become a self-learning library based broadly on say, the CBSE or ICSE curriculum or learning say, English or French or other language skills that a 10 yr old should ideally have.

Just adding links right now…will later add benefits that kids have experienced using them:

Anybody preparing for IMO- International Mathematics Olympiad 2014?

IMO- International Mathematics Olympiad 2014

DATES: First Round- 4th Dec and 18th Dec- choice by school

Class-wise Syllabus at :http://schools.aglasem.com/?p=6046
Samplepapers: http://schools.aglasem.com/?p=6048

TIPS: My best strategy has been to stay a chapter ahead of the class. RD Sharma’s Mathematics book for each class is another life-saver.  Several rapidshare and Torrent downloads of RD Sharma Solutions are available. There is an RD Sharma Solutions YouTube Channel by CBSE Labs.  MeritNation, Topperlearning, GyanPub ,Mathseekho  and other providers have RD Sharma Solutionmaterials (for Higher classes)  .
