                  HOW EVERYDAY THINGS ARE MADE

               http://manufacturing.stanford.edu/

  The Alliance for Innovative Manufacturing (AIM) at Stanford
  has developed an introductory website for students of all
  ages showing how various items are made. It covers over
  40 different products and manufacturing processes, and
  includes almost 4 hours of manufacturing video.

  Due to the amount of video, it is optimally viewed with a
  high-speed connection. After clicking on the link "How
  Everyday Things Are Made," use the tabs on the left sidebar
  to navigate the site. Choices include:

    - Products 1
        Introduction
        Transportation
        Candy
        Packing It Up
        What You Wear

    - Products 2
        Play Time
        Materials
        Summary
        Extras
        Careers in Manufacturing

    - Processes
        Casting Metal
        Molding Plastics
        Forming/Shaping
        Machining
        Assembly

                 NICK'S MATHEMATICAL PUZZLES

                http://www.qbyte.org/puzzles/

  The puzzles presented by Nick Hobson are selected for the
  deceptive simplicity of their statements, or the elegance of
  their solutions. They range over geometry, probability, 
  number theory, algebra, calculus, and logic. All require a 
  certain ingenuity, but usually only pre-college math. Some 
  puzzles are original.

  Explaining how an answer is arrived at is more important than
  the answer itself. To this end, hints, answers, and fully
  worked solutions are provided, together with links to
  relevant mathematical topics. Further references are provided
  with many of the solutions. The puzzles are intended to be
  fun, with an educational element.

  Nick plans to add one new puzzle each week and invites
  everyone to stop by often to try the newest puzzle.
