|A site developed as a resource for professors wishing to enrich their courses with mathematical 'fun facts': more than 100 5-minute math tidbits that can be used at the beginning of class to get students interested in mathematics. They are best used in lower-division courses such as calculus. On the site you can pull up a random fun fact, or search by subject, keyword, or level of difficulty. Subjects covered include Algebra, Calculus/Analysis, Combinatorics, Geometry, Number Theory, Probability, and Topology.|
|Levels:||High School (9-12), College|
