The Math Images Project

The Math Images Project is a wiki collaboration between Swarthmore College, the Math Forum at Drexel University, and the National Science Digital Library. The Project aims to introduce the public to mathematics through beautiful and intriguing images found throughout the fields of math.

Using Mediawiki, the Project encourages a collaborative atmosphere in which contributors find images, write an explanation, and educate members of the community through discussion.

Maths Is Fun

Rod Pierce's idea in developing his site aimed at basic math skills is to offer mathematics as well as some fun bits, and to combine the two wherever possible.

Areas of the site include:

  • Math Menu
  • Puzzles & Quizzes
  • Illustrated Math Dictionary
  • Worksheets

Disfruta Las Matemáticas

Pierce offers a Spanish language version of the resources on his Maths Is Fun site.


The eCalc site freely offers both a Basic and a Scientific online calculator. On each of the two calculator pages, scroll down to view the available features.

Other links on the site include:

  • Calculator Reviews
  • Video Demo
  • Windows Vista Sidebar Calculator Download
