Love the Top Marks site, it has lessons for whiteboards on almost everything. I did the lesson recently on angles and the lesson here was a dream. Old way back to class, and trying to look cool using an oversized protractor on the chalk board, new way let the whiteboard do the work and discuss what is happening with the students. Students loved it and I loved it.
