Pages are organized for parents, teachers, and administrators. -|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|- MATHEMATICAL AND OTHER MAZES THROUGH MAZES TO MATHEMATICS - Tony Phillips http://www.math.sunysb.edu/~tony/mazes/index.html Mazes that have a complete mathematical description. Classes can build their own labyrinth using nesting segments on the number line. Examples and calculations focus on the simple, alternating transit (s.a.t.) maze, and on exploring the relation between mazes and and mathematics. Count the number of different n-level s.a.t. mazes, see the Cretan maze drawn as a game, learn other facts about maze numbers, and find print citations of mathematical research into mazes. Don't miss his page, "How did I get interested in counting mazes?" http://www.math.sunysb.edu/~tony/mazes/motivation.html \|/ MAZE MAKER - John Lauro http://www.flint.umich.edu/Departments/ITS/crac/maze.form.html A site where you can provide your own specifications to make rectangular, Christmas tree, and Valentine mazes. A message board is also provided: http://www.flint.umich.edu/cgi-bin/maze.other \|/ THE MAZE MAN - John Knoderer MATH MAZES use addition, subtraction, multiplication and division problems to define movement. You may move horizontally or vertically from one problem to another if the answers or the operators are the same. http://users.aol.com/themazeman/mathmaze.html This site also features Pizza, Message, Shape, Movie Maze Madness, Satellite (Circular), and Hexagonal mazes; Hidden Picture Octomazes, and Number Place and Wiggle Word puzzles. http://users.aol.com/themazeman/index.html \|/ For more mazes on the Web, consult Yahoo: http://www.yahoo.com/Recreation/Games/Internet_Games/Interactive_Web_Games/Mazes/ -|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|- MATH EDUCATION and KEY ISSUES FOR THE MATH COMMUNITY http://mathforum.org/mathed/ http://mathforum.org/social/ In an effort to improve navigation, the Math Forum's collections of online resources on math education and key issues for mathematics have been reorganized to include a table of contents on each page.
