The Math Forum -

An online community of teachers, students, researchers, parents, educators, and citizens at all levels who have an interest in math and math education.

Ask Dr. Math -

The Math Forum's ask-an-expert service for K-12 math students and their teachers. A searchable archive is available by level and topic, together with a FAQ and Classic Problems section.

Teacher2Teacher -

The panel of teaching professionals, Presidential Awardees for Excellence in Mathematics Teaching, is available to answer questions. Topics can range from classroom teaching techniques to finding good Internet resources for professional development.

Discussion Groups, Special Discussion Projects -

The Math Forum's epigone discussion archives include mathematics and math education-related newsgroups, mailing lists, and Web-based discussions. (Math-Teach, Numeracy, Geometry-Pre-College, K-12 Math Education,Math History List, NCTM Standards 2000)

Math Forum Internet News -

An electronic newsletter sent out via e-mail once a week to those who subscribe, archived on the Web and as a Web discussion. It offers site tips (what we have at the Math Forum and how to find it), notes about new math onsite or on the Internet, questions and answers from the Math Forum's interactive math projects (Ask Dr. Math, Problems of the Week), suggestions for K-12 teachers and students, and pointers to key issues in mathematics and math education.

Problems of the Week -

A project designed to challenge students with non-routine problems and to encourage them to verbalize their solutions.

Math Resources by Subject -

Recommended resources by subject for K-12 students (Arithmetic, Algebra, Geometry, Pre-Calculus, Calculus, Probability & Statistics, Discrete Math); College students (Geometry, Pre-Calculus, Calculus, Probability & Statistics, Discrete Math, Linear Algebra, Differential Equations, Modern Algebra, Analysis); and Advanced level (Modern Algebra, Analysis, Discrete Math, Geometry, Numerical Analysis, Differential Equations, Game Theory & Programming).

Forum Web Units and Lessons -

The Math Forum is committed to being a resource built upon the activity of the teachers, students, and researchers who use it.

Math Forum Search Engine -

We have over 300,000 pages so this is quite an extensive search. You may also search each specific area, which may give you a more focused, and in the case of the discussion groups, a more thorough search.

The Internet Mathematics Library -

The Math Forum's Internet Mathematics Library is an annotated catalog of mathematics and mathematics education web sites. The Math Library features: hierarchical categories for browsing; a searcher on each browse page; power searching for more precise searching; a description of each entry; suggested starting points for each category; a monthly highlighted "hot spot"; and a link submission page, so you can help us add sites we may have missed.
