 A Database of Sample Statistics Quiz Questions - Brian Schott, Ed.; Business Statistics, Georgia State University In the 1970s the National Science Foundation developed a 3003-page set of statistics quiz questions and answers. This site is a collection of 811 of those questions and answers, with links to the full database, arranged to complement the Introduction to Business Statistics at Georgia State University. Topics include: Problem Sensing; Basic Probability Concepts; Probability Distributions; Data Collection Methods; Making Inferences about One Population; Hypothesis Testing; Analysis of Variance; and Regression Analysis. The textbook for the course is Harvey Brightman and Howard Schneider's Statistics for Business Problem Solving, 2nd Edition (South-Western Publishing Company, 1994). more>> Interactive Mathematics Miscellany and Puzzles - Alexander Bogomolny "The peculiar beauty of Mathematics lies in deduction, in the dependency of one fact upon another. The less expected a dependency is, the simpler the facts on which the deduction is based - the more beautiful is the result." This award-winning site offers games and puzzles, quotes, and much more on a variety of topics from arithmetic and algebra to geometry and probability, and includes solutions and the mathematical theory behind each puzzle. There are also the CTK Exchange (a small discussion group for questions and answers about math problems); the Eye Opener Series (Java applets that illustrate and help solve or prove math problems); a math bookstore; a glossary; a monthly interactive column using Java applets for MAA Online; and the CTK Insights blog. The whole site is available on CD-ROM. more>> K-12 Teaching Materials (Mathematics Archives) - University of Tennessee, Knoxville (UTK) An extensive list of Internet sites with significant collections of materials that can be used in the teaching of mathematics at the K-12 level. Organized into categories: lesson plans, schools, software and other K-12 Internet math sites. more>> Math for Morons Like Us - ThinkQuest 1998 Students talk to students about math: a site designed to help you understand math concepts better. Tutorials, sample problems, and quizzes for Pre-Algebra, Algebra, Geometry, Algebra II, and Pre-Calc/Calculus, designed assuming you know some of the basic concepts but need reinforcement, or want to review things you learned in the past. Interactive resources include a message board, calculus board, formula database, quizzes, math links, and a place to send feedback. more>> Problem Solving in Mathematics - Jim Wilson; Univ. of Georgia Problems in algebra, geometry, conversion, cryptarithm, "mean," trigonometry, and a mixture of all, many with comments and solutions, from a course given in the Dept. of Mathematics Education at the University of Georgia. The site also provides links to papers, including "Mathematical Problem Solving" (Wilson, Fernandez, & Hathaway), a synthesis of research on problem solving [published as ch. 4 in Wilson, P. S. (Ed.) (1993), Research Ideas for the Classroom: High School Mathematics, New York: MacMillan]. more>> The rec.puzzles Archive The index of the rec.puzzles archive. Puzzles are categorized by subject area and include solutions compiled from various sources and supposed to be definitive.
