These are a few of my favorite Mathematical sites.

  • Ask Dr. Math
    Ask Dr. Math is a question and answer service for K-12 math students and their teachers. A searchable archive is available by level and topic, together with a FAQ.

  • AIMS Puzzle Page
    The goal of the AIMS Puzzle Corner is to provide teachers with a variety of interesting puzzles that can be used to create a learning environment where students engage in doing mathematics just for the fun of it! With the proper encouragement and enthusiasm on the part of the teacher, students can learn to enjoy puzzles and the mathematics behind them.

  • Dynamical Systems at Boston University.
    This project is a National Science Foundation sponsored project designed to help secondary school and college teachers of mathematics bring contemporary topics in mathematics (chaos, fractals, dynamics) into the classroom, and to show them how to use technology effectively in this process. It is directed by Robert L. Devaney of the Department of Mathematics at Boston University. At this point, there are a number of Java applets available at this site for use in teaching ideas concerning chaos and fractals. There are also several interactive papers designed to help teachers and students understand the mathematics behind such topics as iterated function systems (the chaos game) and the Mandelbrot and Julia sets.

  • Eisenhower National Clearinghouse
    The Eisenhower National Clearinghouse for Mathematics and Science Education (ENC) is located at The Ohio State University, and is funded through a contract with the U.S. Department of Education's Office of Educational Research and Improvement.

  • Fibonacci Numbers
    Information about the Fibonacci series, including a brief biography of Fibonacci, the numerical properties of the series, and the ways it is manifested in nature. Fibonacci numbers are closely related to the golden ratio (also known as the golden mean, golden number, golden section) and golden string. Includes: geometric applications of the golden ratio; Fibonacci puzzles; the Fibonacci rabbit binary sequence; the golden section in art, architecture, and music; using Fibonacci bases to represent integers; Fibonacci Forgeries (or "Fibonacci Fibs"); Lucas Numbers; a list of Fibonacci and Phi Formulae; references; and ways to use Fibonacci numbers to calculate the golden ratio.

  • Hands-On Equations
    Hands-On Equations is a visual and kinesthetic teaching system for introducing algebraic concepts to students in grades 3 to 8. Developed by Dr. Henry Borenson, this patented teaching system (U.S. Patent No. 4,713,009) enables young children, as early as 3rd grade, to gain access to algebraic concepts normally presented in the 7th, 8th, or even 9th grades.

  • MacTutor History of Mathematics archive
    The archive was created and is maintained by John O'Connor and Edmund F Robertson. It was developed initially as part of the Mathematical MacTutor system for learning and experimenting with mathematics. The archive contains the biographies of more than 1300 mathematicians. You can access them from a selection of Alphabetical or Chronological Biographical indexes.

  • Manipula Math with Java
    The material presented in the following pages are for middle school students, high school students, college students, and all who are interested in mathematics. You will find interactive programs that you can manipulate and a lot of animation that helps you to grasp the meaning of mathematical ideas.

  • Math Forum
    The goal of the Math Forum is to build an online community of teachers, students, researchers, parents, educators, and citizens at all levels who have an interest in math and math education. Areas of interest include:

  • MATHMANIA or Erdos for Kids
    This site is dedicated to helping young students and other explore some topics in higher mathematics. As of the summer of 1996, the math topics that are showcased on this site are:

  • MegaMath
    Mathematics is a live science with new discoveries being made every day. The frontier of mathematics is an exciting place, where mathematicians experiment and play with creative and imaginative ideas. Many of these ideas are accessible to young children. Areas of interest include:

  • NCTM Standards
    The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics Standards for math education.

  • POPMathematics
    A list of math related sites maintained by The Mathematics Archives. In their own words: Did you ever wonder what made your teacher get so excited about some topic in Mathematics? On this page, we will try to collect items about Mathematics one of which hopefully may explain this weird behavior.

  • Texas Instruments
    Texas Instruments calculator resources: product information; program downloads; classroom activities; discussion groups; news items; and calculator history. Many resources to incorporate TI calculators into the classroom are provided: educational resources for calculators include training opportunities; math and science associations; supplementary workbooks, newsletters, and videos; and other WWW resources. Product information, accessory store; customer support and services; free downloads, and international information.

  • The following MC Escher links provide a look at the works of this famous artist/mathematician.
