Math Education - Teaching Mathematics
Applied Math and Science Education Repository
"...is a portal of educational resources and services built specifically for use by those in Community and Technical Colleges ñ but free for anyone to use."
"...Our materials are written for the struggling student. We put the concepts in language they can understand. We also use this navigation tool (the Brain) because it associates math concepts for the student. For whatever reason, it appears that our system works, and makes a difference in the student success rate (in lower level math courses, anyway) at our university... Additionally, we have determined that students who use our system in junior-high and senior-high level algebra instruction can also benefit significantly from using the BrainTrax System."
Sections include: Algebra ; Trigonometry ; Calculus I ; Calculus II.

Math Awarenes Month
An Online Math Education Community Center
"Our goal is to build a community that can be a center for teachers, students, researchers, parents, educators, citizens at all levels who have an interest in mathematics education."
An outstanding resource. Topics include Math Resources by Subject (K-12, college, through advanced), Search for Math, Math Education Key Issues in Math, and a Showcases area. It also includes a Student Center, Teacher's Place, Research Division, and Parents & Citizens area.

National Library of Virtual Manipulatives for Interactive Mathematics
"This is a three-year NSF supported project to develop a library of uniquely interactive, web-based virtual manipulatives or concept tutorials, mostly in the form of Java applets, for mathematics instruction (K-8 emphasis). The project includes dissemination and extensive internal and external evaluation."

Quantitative Environmental Learning Project (QELP)
"The central goal of QELP is to promote curricular revision by linking mathematics and environmental science. For the last 3 years, Greg and Joe have taught a course that integrates college level mathematics (algebra, difference equations and statistics) with environmental issues and problems (environmental science)...We have written a series of exercises (i.e. labs) which investigate topics from environmental and earth science using introductory college-level mathematics...we will compile real data on a dozen earth and environmental science topics that can be used in conjunction with each of a dozen college level algebra topics - about 100-150 data sets altogether."

Teaching Quantitative Skills in the Geosciences
Resources for Undergraduate Students and Faculty
"This website provides information on the issues involved in teaching quantitative skills and methods for doing so as well as additional resources and a community of other faculty who are all attempting this challenging task.
Web Interface for Statistics Education (WISE)
"This project aims to develop an on-line teaching tool to take advantage of the unique hypertextual and presentational benefits of the World Wide Web (WWW). This teaching tool's primary application is as a supplement to traditional teaching materials, addressing specific topics that instructors have difficulty in presenting using traditional classroom technologies. The tool serves to promote self-paced learning and to provide a means for advanced students to review concepts."
