Math Education Resources on the Internet

The links below contain resources for teachers and for students. Some are tutorials and some are good research sites. Enjoy!

Following these links will take you out of the SUNY Orange Web site. The college cannot be responsible for the content on these pages, although the links on this page have been reviewed and are recommended by the members of Math and Computer Sciences Department.

Ask Dr. Math : This site has some really neat things that are organized in such a way that it isn't always easy to find what you are looking for, but your patience will be well rewarded. There is both a college level and high school level breakdown. Some interesting Linear Algebra items, although that is just the beginning.

AtLast : (Augmenting the Teaching of Linear Algebra Through the use of Software Tools) And the software tool in question is MatLab. A neat place. Precisely what it sounds like. The AtLast Lab Manual works with the downloads from this site. You can request information on ordering the Manual here.

Cut the Knot : A site that bills itself as a collection of Interactive Mathematics Miscellany and Puzzles. In short, lots of fun and well worth the time.

Dave's Math Tables : Much more than what it sounds like, it has very good graphics and some nicely done explanations. Graphics for algebra, trig, and geometry - includes conics. Tables as you expect from the title but lots more as well.

David Joyce's Home Page : A NEW ADDITION - Here is a treat just waiting for exploration. From Millifliori! to Euclid's Elements there is something here to intrigue anyone who enjoys math. Wonderful resources dealing with the history of mathematics. Also features some nice Java applets. Overall the site has a strong geometry slant.

Famous Curves Index : A fine collection of interactive graphs. Links to information on the mathematicians associated with particular graphs as well. Very well done.

Franklin Institute Home Page : A very diverse set of education listings, not just mathematics. Other subjects are handled in as fine a fashion as math, be sure to look over the entire site.

Geometry Junkyard : A NEW ADDITION - For all you geometry fans, here it is, just what you've been waiting for! More geometry than you ever expected to find in one place. Have fun digging around, courtesy of David Eppstein.

Guide to Available Mathematical Software : Exactly what it says and nothing else. There is a searchable database that helps you find very specific software solutions. The more languages you can handle the more help this site will be!

History of Mathematics : This one is included because I enjoy the topic!  It is broken down by years as well as an alphabetical search of names. Very easy to find what you are after or just browse around. (This is also the home of the "not to be missed" Famous Curves Index).

Internet Resource Collection (a.k.a. Steve's Dump) : A very nice collection that has items to intrest anyone. This site also has a searchable data base of links to other sites that is without equal in my opinion.

M.S.T.E.'s Math Resources : Another good collection of sites, this one also features some excellect lesson plans with a searchable database- a welcome touch. You can also view a complete list of the titles for inspiration if you prefer.  It also has a Calculus and Mathematica section, as well.

MATH-abundance : "An 'upper secondary' Math Tutorial" is the way this site describes itself and it certainly is precisely that. Includes lots of solved problems, too. Perhaps not very exciting, but very thorough.

Math Archive :This is the site that first started me on my investigation of educational resources on the web and I still think this is one of the best. Well organized and very diverse. Arranged by topic with level of difficulty noted, and many interactive or Java pages. A fun place to spend some very fruitful time.

Math Forum : A wonderful resource for all sorts of things. Includes articles, lesson plans, student work, links to other sites. Steve's Dump is here and an excellent web search, too. Lots of resources of different types and very well cross referenced.

Mathematica: Wolfram Research's home. What list of sources would be complete without this one? Poke around to find lots of great help if you use the Mathematica software.

Mathematica Related URL's : Find Calculus & Mathematica and Mathematics Archives-Other Software here. Naturally, also contains a link to Wolfram Research.

Mathematics Quotation Server: Another quotation server, courtesy Furman University.  More good stuff to spark lessons or just give you a moment's thought.

MatLab : A tremendous resource for use with the MatLab software.  User donated m-files for free use and online help, etc., etc.,etc.  Some very high power applications.

MEGA Mathematics : This site is included because this is the home of the Infinity Hotel. There are other good topics here which are well developed and presented.

National Council of Teachers of Mathematics: Professional resources for math teachers.

Purple Math : This is the site for help with your algebra homework, from Elementary through College level.  Also lots of practical suggestions regarding study habits, homework, etc.

Selected Math Resources by Subject : Part of the Math Forum, this site has some good stuff, noted by education level (i.e., K-12, college, advanced) as well as by subject. (This is actually part of the Math Forum.)

The Teacher's Place : Geared to the teaching professional, this is another site that is multi-layered. By going to Community Colleges you will find a very nice directory. Education Resources could keep an indepth researcher going for quite some time. There are also annotated versions of most lists, very helpful. Find Software Publisher's on the Net here. (This is a part of the Math Forum)

Yahoo! Mathematics List : Feel like browsing? - this could be the place for you. The folks at Yahoo! have done their best to gather lots of different sites from light reading to peer reviewed journals. Whatever you may be after is probably represented here, although it could take a while to locate! From Ask An Expert to Mathematical Humor with bunches of other topics between, this list must have something to appeal to you.
