WEISSTEIN'S WORLD OF MATHEMATICS (MATHWORLD) - Wolfram http://mathworld.wolfram.com MathWorld is back! Eric Weisstein reports: "Although it may have seemed as if nothing were happening, behind the scenes Wolfram Research, their lawyers, and I were working the whole time to bring MathWorld back. Now, after a huge amount of effort on all of our parts, the case has been settled and MathWorld has been returned to the Web." For details on the shutdown and return of the site see: http://mathworld.wolfram.com/authors_note.html MathWorld is a full-text searchable, comprehensive alphabetical encyclopedia of math terms, equations, and derivations, with explanations, examples, references, and much more. Features include: - Index by Subject Algebra, Applied Mathematics, Calculus and Analysis, Discrete Mathematics, Foundations of Mathematics, Geometry, History and Terminology, Number Theory, Probability and Statistics, Recreational Mathematics, and Topology - What's New http://mathworld.wolfram.com/whatsnew.html - Animations http://mathworld.wolfram.com/animations.html - Live Graphics 3D http://mathworld.wolfram.com/live.html - Code Snippets http://mathworld.wolfram.com/code-snippets.html - FAQs http://mathworld.wolfram.com/faq.html \|/ TREASURE TROVES OF SCIENCE - Eric Weisstein http://www.treasure-troves.com/ -|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|- PBS TEACHERLINE http://teacherline.pbs.org/teacherline/ TeacherLine is a professional development Web site for content, community and collaboration amongst college instructors, K-12 teachers, and future teachers.
