            http://www.wmueller.com/precalculus/

  These materials by William Mueller introduce precalculus,
  using Mathcad or StudyWorks as calculation and visualization
  tools. Many interactive examples let students explore the
  concepts and practice the skills necessary for understanding
  calculus. The materials cover the three central themes of
  functions, rates of change, and accumulation in these
  sections:

    - What Is Precalculus?
    - Functions and Their Changes
    - Functions as Models
    - Families of Functions
    - Functions Defined by Data
    - New Functions From Old
    - Advanced Numbers & Functions
    - The Number e
    - Am I Ready for Calculus?

         MUSIC THAT TEACHES MATH FACTS AND CONCEPTS

         http://www.songsforteaching.com/Math.html

  After listening to thousands of songs, S. Ruth Harris has
  selected and categorized a small percentage that she
  personally enjoys musically and would use in her own
  teaching. Math Facts and Concepts is one of the categories
  she has and the songs are subdivided into:

    - Early Number and Counting Skills
    - Multiplication and Division Tables
    - Addition and Subtraction
    - Miscellaneous Math Songs
    - Teaching Advanced Math, Algebra, and Geometry
    - Books with Fun Ideas for Learning Math
    - More Math Recordings and Books

  Sound clips are available for some of the songs.
