Mateo y Cientina


The cartoon kids, Mateo y Cientina, present thirty experiments and activities for kids 7-10 and their families. The site includes resources and ideas for families and teachers.

The activities are intended to:

  • help adults and children alike to overcome their fear of math and science;
  • encourage families to spend time on subjects important to academic achievement;
  • introduce families to local resources that support the project's mission.

Lawrence Hall of Science at UC Berkeley teamed with New America Media, a network of ethnic media, and with the Children's Museum of Houston and the Miami Science Museum, with funding from the National Institute of Science, to develop this project.

12 Theorems by Women Mathematicians


Robin Whitty, whose "Theorem of the Day" site we featured in 2007 and 2008, offers a calendar for 2010, featuring a different theorem for each month. You may download the PDF files for free.

Baseball Hall of Fame Online Thematic Units


The Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York, offers sixteen standards-based curricular-oriented modules, one of which covers mathematics:


The "Mathematics: Batter Up" program (grades 3-9) focuses on batting average and slugging percentage.

The new "Circling the Bases: Baseball & Geometry" program addresses grades 7 and up.
