General links
- Cynthia Lanius's page, lots of interesting (and interactive) stuff
- the mother of all mathematical web link pages, at Yahoo
- Math Reference Tables -- has unit conversions, a fraction to decimal conversion page below, and much more
- "Cool Math", which includes 2 links pages for math-for-teachers courses
- NRICH Online Maths Club (UK), has info and interactive puzzles/games
- Los Alamos National Laboratory Mega-Mathematics has resources on problem-solving, graphing, logic, etc.
- Swarthmore's Math Forum Internet Math Library, with oodles of links
- Peanut software is free
Windows software to graph and do other handy math-related things
- learner.org has five online courses for K-8 math teachers called
Learning Math
each of which has a set of videos (select the course, then click on "Watch the
Videos Online" and select the video)
Math 1330 Links
Math 1331 Links
- The Geometry Center at the University of Minnesota, includes interactive math
- The geometry page at cut-the-link.com has loads and loads of information, on topics including all sorts of constructions, the Pythagorean Theorem, Pick's and Heron's Formulas, and non-Euclidean geometries.
- Clemson's version of the links page for this very same geometry class
- e-zgeometry.com was recommended
by a student
- a learner.org
video
of young children describing shapes they can feel but not see
- StudyWorks's Interactive
Geometry page has a number of Java applets that let you work through
problems involving triangles, angles and so forth.
- a
list of links to tutorials and web pages on geometry topics for elementary students
Triangles
- This page at Clemson lets you play around with a triangle, through a Java applet that lets you drag vertices around, and it tells you side lengths and angle measures.
- This page, by
the same author, talks more generally about drawing triangles.
- Reflection 5: the NCTM standards on
pre-K--2
geometry and
E-example 4.2
Tessellations (Unit 4)
- Go to the Yahoo site above, then select geometry, then tessellations.
- "Totally Tessellated".
- Tessellation Tutorial.
- a tessellations page from the Cool Math site.
- a list of web sites on tessellations.
Polyhedra (Unit 5)
- Go to the Yahoo site in the general links above, then select geometry, then polyhedra.
- George Hart has a web
site with lots of information on polyhedra.
- Jorge Rezende has a site on
Puzzles with polyhedra and
numbers. In this site one can print copies of polyhedron puzzles
(for non-commercial purposes only) and one can read several mathematical
articles on the subject.
- Enchanted
Learning has a nice page on the regular polyhedra (thanks, Tina and Elise).
Symmetry (Unit 6)
- a page on symmetry
from the U. of Arkansas
- David Joyce has a site
on the symmetries of the 17 wallpaper patterns.
Rigid Motions in the Plane (Unit 7)
- Melissa Shearer and Hayley Rintel (as best we can tell) made this page
introducing rigid
motions of the plane.
- a page on rigid
motions in the plane from the U. of Arkansas
Non-Euclidean Geometries (Unit 8)
- A page on hyperbolic geometry from Clemson: it describes a flat model of the hyperbolic plane, for those looking for another way to visualize it (also has some links to other pages on the topic).
- cut-the-knot.com's page
Measurement (Unit 9)
- measurement stuff - see Math Reference Tables above
- a learner.org
video
of students measuring the area of two rectangles directly with two different sizes of square
- Golden Ratio (a.k.a. Phi) page here
