Math
 

This is done by the folks at the Computer Research and Applications Group at Los Alamos National Laboratory. I didn't go real far with it but what I saw looks interesting, especially Welcome to the Hotel Infinity!

This is a great compilation of books, sites, videos and computer software regarding math from a great homeschool Mom, Karen Gibson.  Enjoy.This was posted to another list - since a couple of our favorite math sites are on it, I thought this group might be interested.

The MathCounts website. Great program for competitive math.  Austin's group has won several state and national titles. 

Welcome To Rick Schauer's Math Pages,  an entire K-12 math curriculum that's open for free to everyone but geared toward special education learners with math disabilities and to learners preparing for the State of Minnesota 8th Grade Basic Standards Test.  As of October 26, 1999, there are over 4,600 math problems here for learners pre-kindergarten to high school who need help learning to count, write numbers, understand place value, addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, prime numbers, composite numbers, least common multiples, greatest common factors, factoring whole numbers and  * NEW * fractions. This includes: Tips and Tricks for learning different math operations and supporting worksheets for practice.

I did a search in Yahoo for "Math Symbols" and this has great history of the symbols and how they became in use.

Swarthmore University runs a web site called The Math Forum which has the greatest set of math education links I have seen 
in one place.

My favorite math site is the 2+2=4 Mathematically Correct website.  It tells you what kind of math instruction to avoid in addition to explaining math instruction that works!

This is a site put together by Michael Lloyd, a colleague, good friend and really nice Christian guy. In addition to that he is one of the best calculator programmers in the world. In fact, you don't have to take my word for that. Texas Instruments links to Michael's page. ~Dr. Fred Worth
