Khan Academy--We have used this in math. It provides videos and practice for all skills (and other things students may want to learn). This identifies and helps fill gaps from previous years and would be great to practice in the summer as well.
These are basically online flash cards that can be used to study vocab words. Students can create their own sets to study whatever they may need.
HES has a new math series. Available online are the interactive student edition, math tutor, and homework helper. This includes videos on how to solve problems, additional practice problems with feedback, as well as access to the entire textbook.
