Close that new window to return tothis page.  Due to the increasing length of this page, it's notpossible to check to make sure all links are working at all times. I try to check all links about twice a year.  Again, if youfind a link that doesn't work, please e-mail me (use the link above).

Possibleworkaround for links that no longer work: If you encounter abroken link, click your right mouse key on it and choose the selectionthat allows you to copy the URL.  (In Netscape, that's "Copy LinkLocation." In Internet Explorer, that's "Copy Shortcut." In Opera,that's "Copy Link Address" or keyboard shortcut Ctrl+Alt+C.) Then go tothe web site and find the box marked with "The Wayback Machine." Click inside thebox and press Ctrl+V (or choose edit > paste from your drop downmenu.)

General Math Sites
  • TheMath Forum --this must be one of the two most-linked math sitesI've encountered. (This is at a new address: mathforum.org)
  • Mathematics Archives -- University of Tennessee,Knoxville.  (This is the other most-linked site I see.)
  • GIMPS--The Great Internet Mersenne Prime Search --A page devoted to Mersenne primes (prime numbers of the form 2 p - 1).  Lists the most recent ones found and howyou can use your office computer to aid in the search for additionalMersenne primes.
  • The PrimePages -- Information on prime numbers at the University ofTennessee-Martin.
  • "Why Must I Learn Math?" ,teacher at J.S. Morton East High School in Cicero, IL.  (Note: GeoCities page, which means it has popup ads)
  • ExactlyHow is Math Used in Technology? -- Page from British Columbia(Canada) Institute of Technology.  Gives several examples of howmath is used in technical fields such as electronics, surveying,occupational health, biomedical technology, and forestry. Examples range from algebra and geometry to to calculus anddifferential equations, so this could be useful to you also if youteach non-developmental classes also.

Developmental Math Sites

Sites that would make good activities/ pages for students
In this category you'llfind sites where you could send your students, as well as sources foryou to use.
  • Graphing applet --put in a function that can be written y = f(x) and it graphsthatfunction.
  • More Javagraphing applets with instructions onhow to include them in your own page.
  • AdultNumeracy Page --from Boston.  Activities for adultslearning math.
  • Glossary of Mathematics Mistakes -- articles dealwith common mistakes made by politicians, reporters, activists,etc.  Includesreal-life examples.
  • Web Quests--A Web Quest is anactivity in which you direct students to specific web sites tofind certain information and do something with it. Here are someexamples:
    • Mr. Schick's High School Math WebQuest Archive--David Schick, a teacher at Meridian High School, Bellingham,Washington, has put together a collection of several really goodexamples of WebQuests for high school math. He also has a number ofother good activities on his pages, so check them out if youhave time.
    • Planning for Population Growth --my attempt for aclass I took. Designed for elementary or intermediate algebra,depending on where you teach graphing linear equations, slope, etc.
