2011 Mathematics Game
http://mathforum.org/yeargame/2011/
The year game puzzle is back to challenge students in grades
312 to write expressions for each of the counting numbers 1
through 100, using the digits in the year 2011, standard
operations, and grouping symbols.
Students may start submitting solutions January 1, 2011;
revisit the site after February 1, 2011, to see the
first solutions.

Now taking place: math education conversation of the hour

"Rusin's list contained 74 total combinations. There are total
43 interesting combinations which are nontrivial and non
obvious. I have solved 42 of them, one case is still unsolved."

Graph Pro Basketball Statistics
http://ptrow.com/perl/basketball_stats1.pl
Name a pro basketball player or pick his team (NBA or ABA),
and see bar graphs charting
 points per game
 rebounds per game
 assists per game
 steals per game
 blocks per game
 turnovers per game
 field goal percentage
 free throw percentage
 3point percentage
Paul Trow's site also lets you analyze the same hoops data with
histograms, slicing statistics into bins, or intervals
of numbers:

Other interactive web pages by Trow perform modular arithmetic,
including square roots; and model the trajectory of a
cannonball for different muzzle velocities and angles of
elevation, and see the projectile's flight path plotted
over time:
