Topics include: - Business Algebra - Business Calculus - Calculus I - Calculus III - Euclidean Geometry - Financial Mathematics - Group Theory - Trigonometry Read more about the development of the site's articles and how to use them: http://libraryofmath.com/Home.html -|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|- MATH TV http://www.actionmath.com/index.html Math TV is a learning project for middle school students that covers the topics of: - whole numbers - fractions - percentages - ratios - probability - algebra - geometry Each week, Math TV posts a Flash movie of a new math problem. Follow along as the main character, IQ ("Infinity Quick"), introduces the problem and works through its solution, step by step; then work an interactive word problem similar to the one you've just watched in the online video. The practice area on the site has a calculator and notepad for testing ideas or making a drawing. Students are invited to send their own challenging math word problems to IQ for possible inclusion on Math TV: http://www.actionmath.com/AskIQ_1.html Use the "Roll 'Em" link to view the archive of previous episodes: http://www.actionmath.com/TuneIn_1.html -|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|- 5 NUMBERS http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio4/science/5numbers.shtml On their website, the BBC has archived Simon Singh's quirky radio broadcasts on: - Zero - Pi - The Golden Ratio - The Imaginary '' - Infinity BBC Radio 4 broadcasted two follow-up radio series by Singh, and one more by mathematician Marcus du Sautoy: - Another 5 Numbers - A Further 5 Numbers - 5 Shapes Listen to the broadcasts, download the audio files, and read the accompanying illustrated articles online. -|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|- CHECK OUT OUR WEB SITE: The Math Forum @ Drexel http://mathforum.org/ Ask Dr. Math http://mathforum.org/dr.math/ Problems of the Week http://mathforum.org/pow/ Mathematics Library http://mathforum.org/library/ Math Tools http://mathforum.org/mathtools/ Teacher2Teacher http://mathforum.org/t2t/ Discussion Groups http://mathforum.org/kb/ Join the Math Forum http://mathforum.org/join.forum.html Send comments to the Math Forum Internet Newsletter editors Donations http://deptapp.drexel.edu/ia/GOL/giftsonline1_MF.asp Ask Dr. Math Books http://mathforum.org/pubs/dr.mathbooks.html _o \o_ __| \ / |__ o _ o/ \o/ __|- __/ \__/o \o | o/ o/__/ /\ /| | \ \ / \ / \ /o\ / \ / \ / | / \ / \ ```
