                 KEVIN BROWN'S MATHPAGES

            http://www.seanet.com/~ksbrown/

If you've been wondering about Zeisel Numbers, Machin's
Merit, How (or How NOT) to Prove Pi is Irrational, Golf
Tournaments and Latin Squares, or The Importance of Being
Urnest, this is the site for you. It contains over 300
articles on a variety of mathematical topics, including:

 - Algebra 
 - Calculus and Differential Equations 
 - Combinatorics 
 - Geometry 
 - History of Mathematics 
 - Music 
 - Number Theory 
 - Physics 
 - Probability and Statistics 
 - Set Theory and Foundations 

and a 'Most Wanted List' of elementary unsolved problems,
link-referenced and updated by Brown as others solve them -
'elementary' because no special background is required to
understand them, 'unsolved' because Brown doesn't know the
answers and they've been posted on the newsgroup sci.math
but no one has answered them.

          FINITE MATHEMATICS AND APPLIED CALCULUS

        http://www.hofstra.edu/~matscw/realworld.html

Designed to be a complete Web resource for the subject, this 
site is based on three applied texts by Stefan Waner and 
Steven Costenoble of Hofstra University. 

Online interactive tutorials, topic summaries, true/false
quizzes, and review exercises correspond to chapters in
these textbooks on finite mathematics and calculus applied
to the real world.

The site also provides three complete online texts for 
Liberal Arts and Business Majors, with exercises and 
applications: 

 - Introduction to Logic
 - Trigonometric Functions and Calculus
 - Probability and Calculus.

  TYPESETTING MATH - GUIDELINES FROM PRINCIPIA HYPERTEXTICA

                    William I. Johnston

    http://world.std.com/~wij/web-design/typesetting.html

Mathematics can be difficult to convey in HTML. Johnston, a
former math teacher and current editor of textbooks for
Houghton Mifflin, writes in detail about the problems, gives
suggestions for using ASCII and GIF files, and supplies notes
on proposals andexperimental projects such as MINSE, the
Integrator, Java applets, and Portable Document Format (PDF).

Typesetting Math is an essay from a larger collection wherein
Johnston offers advice about speed, accessibility, validity,
and navigability on the Web, with links to information about 
these issues:
