This project at Boston University is designed to help secondary school and college teachers of mathematics bring contemporary topics in mathematics (chaos, fractals, dynamics) into the classroom.
- Frequently Asked Questions in Mathematics
A compilation of Frequently Asked Questions (and their answers) about mathematics. Topics range from trivia and the trivial to advanced subjects such as Wiles recent proof of Fermat's Last Theorem.
- Math and Logic Problems Galore
Word problems, puzzles, and ancient games at a variety of difficulty levels.
- Math and Logic Puzzles
A page with fun measuring puzzles, logic puzzles, symmetry jigsaw puzzles, number puzzles, card puzzles, Einstein puzzles, Sam Loyd puzzles, and algebra puzzles.
- Science and Arts Gateway for Education (SAGE)
Developed by the Cornell Center for Advanced Computing to provide educators and students with links to lesson planning and learning resources in science, mathematics, and the arts.
From the Community of Ordinary Differential Equations Educators, an online repository of materials related to the teaching and learning of ordinary differential equations.
- Journal of Statistics Education Home Page
A refereed journal on postsecondary teaching of statistics.
- The Geometry Center Welcome Page
The Geometry Center is part of the National Science and Technology Research Center for Computation and Visualization of Geometric Structures. This site has some wonderful graphics, multimedia documents, and course materials related to the study of geometry.
- History of Mathematics
This archive contains the biographies of more than 1000 mathematicians. About 200 of these biographies are fairly detailed and most are accompanied by pictures of the mathematicians. There is also a brief topics index on a series of articles on the development of mathematical ideas cross-referenced to the biographies.
- The CHANCE Database Welcome Page
This database contains materials designed to help teach an introductory probability or statistics course. The CHANCE course is a case study quantitative literacy course whose aim is to make students more informed, and critical, readers of current news that uses probability and statistics as reported in daily newspapers and current journals and magazines.
- Mathematics Archives WWW Server
The primary goals of the Mathematics Archives are to organize and provide mathematicians with access to most public domain and shareware software and many other materials that are contained on the Internet, and that can be used in the teaching of mathematics at the community college, college and university level.
- Sprott's Fractal Gallery
Every day at a few minutes past midnight, a new fractal is automatically generated and displayed on this page. Also contains pictures of other types of fractals, strange attractors, Julia sets, quadratic map basins, and iterated function systems. The software used to generated the pictures can be downloaded.
- The Math Forum
The Math Forum (formerly known as the Geometry Forum) aims to provide a one-stop center for teachers, students, researchers, parents, and mathematicians at all levels. The Math Forum offers: Expanded support of the best Geometry Forum features, a comprehensive, fully searchable and annotated collection of Internet math sites, the best math resources organized by role, by topic, and by level, math materials that implement new pedagogy and take advantage of the Internet's latest technology, and extensive sections devoted to math education and key issues of interest to the mathematics community.
