About The Math Forum
The goal for this presentation is to give an introductory overview of selected Math Forum features, services, and resources.
The Math Forum Home Page - http://mathforum.org/
The Math Forum is an online community of teachers, students, researchers, parents, educators, and citizens at all levels who have an interest in mathematics and math education. The Math Forum has been consistently recognized as the leader in its field, and continues to provide high quality content and useful features, attracting about 4 million pageviews each month.Problems of the Week - http://mathforum.org/pow/
The Problems of the Week are designed to challenge students with non-routine problems, and to encourage them to explain their solutions. There are six Problems of the Week (PoWs): Elementary, Middle School, Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry & Calculus, and Discrete Mathematics. Each PoW is a mentored environment -- i.e., every student submission is responded to by a mentor, and students are encouraged to strengthen their solutions.Internet Mathematics Library - http://mathforum.org/library/
The Math Forum continues to collect, organize, catalog and annotate thousands of math related web sites from diverse sources to create its Internet Mathematics Library. You can search or browse through over 7,000 items in the collection, organized under the headings of Mathematics Topics, Resource Types, Mathematics Education Topics or Educational Level. "Drilling down" from a heading takes you to a set of categories, then to a page showing subcategories, selected sites, and all sites in the category.Suzanne's Mathematics Lessons - http://mathforum.org/alejandre/
Middle School Web units with activities and procedures for teaching on topics from algebraic factoring to tessellations. Some units include software links, standards connections, and interdisciplinary ideas. Some units are interactive Web units, and the site includes links to Web units created by others.Math Forum Searches - http://mathforum.org/grepform.html
We have over 300,000 pages of content, so this is quite an extensive search field. Given that ours is a full text searcher, you may want to focus a search in a specific area, or use the "that exact phase" and "complete words only" options.
