General Math Sites
 TheMath Forum this must be one of the two mostlinked math sitesI've encountered. (This is at a new address: mathforum.org)
 Mathematics Archives  University of Tennessee,Knoxville. (This is the other mostlinked site I see.)
 GIMPSThe 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 ofTennesseeMartin.
 "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 nondevelopmental 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. Includesreallife examples.
 Web QuestsA 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 ArchiveDavid 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.
Technology for Classes (Calculators,etc.)
Math SelfHelp Sites
Sites Faculty listed in alphabetical order
 Kim Brown, Tarrant County College, Northeast Campus Has some interesting ideas. Check out her musical way ofremembering the Quadratic Formula!
 MarySusan Hall, Georgia Perimeter College Her page is titled" and Rainbows." Yo may have seen her speakat several recent NADE conferences. She has online materials(notes, sample tests, etc.) for three levels of developmentalclasses, as well as for precalculus and calculus. Information ongraphing calculators. The Math 99, 1101, and 1113 are actuallycomplete online courses, so if you're thinking ofan online course at your institution, you may want to check these outto see how she did hers!
