                 LET'S COUNT! - Cynthia Lanius

             http://math.rice.edu/~lanius/counting/

Colorful, animated activities for learning to count. The 
images are sometimes too busy for adults, but children are 
drawn to them.

The activities can be done on computers with Internet access, 
or can be printed out and used as a paper-and-pencil exercise. 
Answers are hidden under tabs so that students can easily 
check their work. A Spanish-language version (Vamos a contar) 
is provided:

From Cynthia Lanius' math lessons, which feature subjects
as diverse as infinite series, fractals, cartography,
duelling pinwheels, a hot tub (interpreting graphs), 
and more:

            MATHS POSTERS IN THE LONDON UNDERGROUND
       Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences

           http://www.newton.cam.ac.uk/wmy2kposters/

During World Mathematical Year 2000, a sequence of maths
posters will be displayed month by month in the trains
of the London Underground. Designed by Andrew D. Burbanks
to stimulate and fascinate, they bring maths to life,
illustrating the wide applications of modern mathematics
in all branches of science: physical, biological, 
technological, and financial.

The archive of posters includes explanatory notes for each
topic. The subjects of the first three months are: 

- January - Maths Counts: Fibonacci
  http://www.newton.cam.ac.uk/wmy2kposters/january/

- February - Maths Stirs: Hurricanes
  http://www.newton.cam.ac.uk/wmy2kposters/february/

- March - Maths Predicts: Chaos
  http://www.newton.cam.ac.uk/wmy2kposters/march/
