Khan Academy  Created by Sal Khan, formerly an arbitrage specialist, this site is completely free (donations are welcome, but voluntary). Sal has a great approach to teaching. A little goofy sometimes, but well worth it: He helps students find the intuition–not just the answers.

Khan Academy has teamed up with the College Board to help students prepare for the new SATs.  And Sal has written an amazing book, The One World School House,  laying out his vision for education in the future.
