The COUNTDOWN web site features more than 800 instructional QuickTime math videos and 350 companion worksheets that are devoted to the demonstration and support of effective mathematics instruction. These multi-indexed math movies are organized according to content standards established by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics allowing viewers to explore specific math concepts at their own pace. Whether you are an educator brushing up on formulas, a fifth grader figuring out equivalent fractions, a grad student completing a methods assignment or a concerned parent seeking an electronic math tutor for your child, this site is a rich math resource available free of charge for your repeated use. The video clips found on this site have been edited from hour-long interactive weekly TV broadcasts on Channel 21 in Chicago.
Course Communities in Undergraduate Mathematics is a collection of online resources for undergraduate mathematics courses. The courses done so far are one-variable calculus, multivariable calculus, and ordinary differential equations. These resources were assembled and cataloged by separate working groups for each course. In addition there is a pseudo-course, developmental mathematics, obtained from Tom Carey's project of the same name. A working group is currently identifying and cataloging resources for a course in probability.
An online derivative calculator that computes symbolic derivatives of mathematical expressions. User input and results are typeset as graphical formulas.
This is a free textbook which covers material for an introductory course on differential equations with some partial differential equations material, though it assumes knowledge of matrix theory. It includes a section on computing Fourier series of polynomials. It also includes a link to the freely available student solutions manual.
This site provides information on solutions to various classes of mathematical equations. There are exact solutions and methods for solving ordinary differential equations, partial differential equations, integral equations, and other classes of functions and transforms. The Equation Archive allows authors to post equations and exact solutions, first integrals, and transformations. There is also an index of named algebraic, ordinary differential, partial differential, integral, and functional equations. Other materials include links to online forums, information on mathematical software, and links to educational materials, publications, and related websites.
Freebookcentre.net's mathematics section contains links to many technical books offered free online, either as html pages or downloadable pdfs. Books are arranged by subject: algebra, geometry, calculus, differential equations, discrete mathematics, linear algebra, number theory, differential algebra, probability theory, trigonometry, and others.
An online integral calculator supporting definite integrals, indefinite integrals (antiderivatives) and improper integrals. User input and results are typeset as graphical formulas.
Investigations is a complete K-5 mathematics curriculum, developed at TERC in Cambridge, Mass. It is designed to help all children understand the fundamental ideas of number and operations, geometry, data, measurement, and early algebra. The curriculum has four major goals: to offer students meaningful mathematical problems; emphasize depth in mathematical thinking; communicate mathematics content and pedagogy to teachers; and expand the pool of mathematically literate students. This site includes descriptions of the units in each grade, K through 5; ordering information; and information on professional-development workshops designed to facilitate introduction of this curriculum.
This site offers 18 curricular modules based on primary historical sources for undergraduate courses in discrete mathematics, combinatorics, logic, abstract algebra, graph theory, analysis of algorithms, data structures, automata and formal languages in computer science. Designed to capture the spark of discovery and motivate the subsequent lines of inquiry, our projects are centered around key historical sources that led to the development of selected topics in the above fields.

This collection of open-source, sharable math applets includes interactive components accompanied by at least two curriculum units. The interactive components are written in Java, Macromedia Director (Shockwave), or Macromedia Flash, and the curriculum units are editable, for instructors who wish to make their own modifications. The collection is searchable by category (application type, spreadsheet-based, and others), subject (arithmetic, set theory, algebra, and others), and by keyword. Participants are also invited to submit their own osslets, which are reviewed for inclusion in the collection by an editorial board. Requirements for submission are included.
This Wiki-based image gallery features imagery related to mathematics, with explanations of the math principles behind the images. Each image is accompanied by information on its creator, source, field of mathematics, a brief explanation of the principles behind the image, and links to additional information (where available). The gallery is searchable by keyword and browseable by title, author, field of mathematics, and grade level. Users are invited to contribute images and explanatory material to the gallery.
This web site, presented by the American Mathematical Society, is devoted to the visualization of mathematics--origami, computer-generated landscapes, tesselations, fractals, anamorphic art, and more. It presents changing galleries of work by mathematicians and artists working in all media, as well as links to online galleries, articles, and other resources on the relationship between mathematics and the visual arts. The site enables viewers to send e-postcards of featured work.
