A Tour of Fractions - Math Forum
The Web often seems more like a maze than an organized set of resources. To help you find what you need, the Math Forum presents a 'tour' of fractions, offering links to lessons, activities, and materials, questions and answers from Ask Dr. Math, and recommended software, grouped by level (elementary, middle school, high school). Material on fractals is included. more>>
A Tour of Measurement - Math Forum
A central resource for people teaching and learning about measurement. For teachers there are links to lessons and materials, questions and answers from Ask Dr. Math, and recommended software, grouped by level (elementary, middle school, high school). For students there are general reference materials and questions and answers from the Dr. Math archives. more>>

This is MegaMathematics! (MegaMath) - Nancy Casey; Los Alamos National Laboratory
The frontier of mathematics is an exciting place, where mathematicians experiment and play with creative and imaginative ideas, many of them accessible to young children; others (infinity is a good example) whose profound mathematical importance is not widely known or understood. MegaMath is a project of the Computer Research and Applications Group at Los Alamos National Laboratory intended to bring unusual and important mathematical ideas to elementary school classrooms so that young people and their teachers can think about them together.
