Effective teaching of maths is a major challenge for instructors teaching every grade level.

App to find services and or providers in their area and use it as a meet up type of site as well to schedule events in their community.

The Real Debt Clock

Build the real debt clock based on sound math and accurate numbers.

Many of us think of the national debt as something owed equally by everyone. Even the famous Debt Clock has one large intimidating debt figure per family. However, since debt is paid by taxes and people pay different taxes baed on how much they make, is that number accurate?
