Connected Curriculum Project  Coolmath Computational Geometry Pages
CONNECTED CURRICULUM PROJECT (CCP)  Duke University
http://www.math.duke.edu/education/ccp/
The Duke component of a coordinated effort to create interactive learning environments for a wide range of mathematics and mathematically based applications, combining the flexibility and connectivity of the Web with the power of computer algebra systems.
Materials may be used by groups of learners as an integrated part of a course, or by individuals as independent projects or supplements to classroom discussions. They include: modules (Maple, Mathematica), projects, texts, and applications for precalculus; differential, integral, and multivariable calculus; differential equations; linear algebra; engineering math; and math finance.
For more, see the Connected Curriculum Project at Montana State University, in particular Connected Before Calculus, and Calculus:

COOLMATH  Karen
http://www.coolmath.com/
A searchable "amusement park of mathematics" for exploring math: lessons (functions, tessellations, polygons, polyhedra, limits, logs); fractals (with galleries); puzzles and numbers, how to succeed in math, careers in math.
Karen also offers Cool Links for Math for students and teachers (K through college); links for Web design; search engines (and how to use them), and links for just plain fun.
