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.
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.
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.

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.
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
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
- 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:
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:
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:
The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics Standards
for math education.
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
