Quizlet is a web-based service that allows you
to create flashcards with answers that can help develop students' knowledge and
understanding on certain concepts.
Quizlet also test students on the flashcards they have made.
I like quizlet because it allows you to add manipulatives to your assignments. you only have to type in a few pieces of information and choose a format to use.
