A site developed as a resource for professors wishing to enrich their courses with mathematical 'fun facts': more than 100 5minute math tidbits that can be used at the beginning of class to get students interested in mathematics. They are best used in lowerdivision 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.
