                   MULTIFLYER - Dan Perkins

               http://www.gdbdp.com/multiflyer/

  A game for learning or brushing up on multiplication. As the
  pilot of a space ship far in the future, you must save the
  solar system from gravitational anomalies while learning and
  memorizing the multiplication tables. Flash 6 plugin required.

        MATH STARS SOFTWARE FOR THE PC - Roger Clary

     http://www.kidsdomain.com/down/pc/mathstars2.html

  Clary offers a Windows shareware version ($10) of his Math Stars
  software, previously available only for Macintosh. Students
  can practice the four basic math functions: addition,
  subtraction, multiplication, division. There is also a
  setting to include both positive and negative numbers so
  that students can practice operations with integers.

  Macintosh version:

                       THE MATH LIFE

         http://www.maa.org/reviews/mathlife.html

  The Math Life, a fifty-two minute movie by Wendy Conquest,
  Bob Drake, and Dan Rockmore, shows the general public that
  the inside of the head of a mathematician is not such a
  scary place. There are interviews with Freeman Dyson,
  David Mumford, Ingrid Daubechies, Persi Diaconis,
  Michael Freedman, Fan Chung Graham, Kate Okikiolu,
  Jennifer Tour Chayes, Peter Sarnak, Steven Strogatz, and
  other mathematicians.

  The film is divided into nine sections: Doing the Math, Shape,
  Working, Number, Proof, Uncertainty, The Real World,
  Connections, and The Last Word. It's now available for
  distribution through Films in the Humanities and Sciences,
  and will soon be appearing on a public television station.
