Fun math for kids (and adults, too!). This web site has a lot of interactive exercises (e.g., how many seconds have you been alive?) as well as ideas for teaching mathematics and quantitative literacy. For example, there is a link on math and children’s literature. An essay contest page also features some interesting examples for writing about numbers. National Council of Teachers of Mathematics Information on Number Sense

The Algebra Lab is "an online learning environment that focuses on topics and skills from high school mathematics that students must be able to draw upon in their introductory science courses." Click on activities for a collection of topics for which hands-on activities have been written.

ThinkQuest includes more than 200 mathematics web sites created by students who have participated in a ThinkQuest competition. Users can search by topic (e.g., algebra, arithmetic, calculus, chaos theory, fractals, geometry, puzzles, statistics, trigonometry, etc.). PhET

A collection of resources put forward by the Department of Mathematics, Engineering and Computer Science at LaGuardia Community College of the City University of New York (CUNY) for teaching basic mathematical skills using a contextualized approach. Purple Math

This website features "individual units embedding upper-level arithmetic into a variety of subject areas. Every unit is real application of mathematics in which student develop quantitative reasoning skills and learn more about the reality of the context."

Socratic is a free learning website where students can watch videos and ask questions in math, and a community of experts works together to answer their questions with helpful answers. It is helpful for homework or to collaborate with others to practice math skills.

The goals of Interactivate are "the creation, collection, evaluation and dissemination of interactive Java-based courseware for exploration in science and mathematics. Check their tools for resources on a variety of mathematical topics (e.g., numbers and operations, geometry, algebra, probability, statistics, modeling, discrete, trigonometry, calculus, etc.). S.O.S. Math

A large collection of resources (including interactive units and lessons) on mathematics topics including Numbers and Operations, Algebra, Geometry, Measurement, Data Analysis and Probability, Problem Solving, Reasoning and Proof, Communication, Connections, and Representation.

OzDASL "is a library of *data sets* and associated stories. It is intended as a resource for teachers of statistics in Australia and New Zealand and elsewhere. Emphasis is given to **data sets** with an Australasian context, although interesting **data sets** from anywhere in the world are included."

This is a collection of online and open access courses that are freely available. Check out the course on "Statistical Reasoning" for units on a variety of key topics (i.e., exploratory data analysis, producing data, probability and inference).

Math Demos with a Positive Impact is a "project to connect mathematics professors with effective teaching tools. As instructors we use a variety of techniques to try to get important ideas across to students. This project focuses on demonstrations that use some form of instructional technology." See, for example, the plinko board demonstration.

This web page includes a "number of examples, demonstrations, and exercises that can be used to motivate a lecture, demonstrate an important point, or create a laboratory exercise for students." The materials cover a wide range of statistical topics (e.g., descriptives, normal distribution, probability, etc.).

The Quantitative Environmental Learning Project provides numerous __data sets__ and covers a variety of math/statistical topics (e.g., linear scatterplots, exponential scatterplots, power scatterplots, etc.) as well as environmental topics (e.g., planet earth, ecology, populations, agriculture, etc.).

This is an NSF-funded project "to develop and disseminate materials that __help students__ learn core concepts underlying statistical inference." It includes "instructional modules that use simulation software to **help students** develop abstract concepts such as sampling distribution, confidence intervals, p-values, and power." University of Leicester Introduction to Statistical Analyses

A web site based at the University of Alabama Huntington that provides "free, high quality, interactive, web-based resources for students and teachers of probability and statistics." The project "consists of an integrated set of components that includes expository text, applets, **data sets**, biographical sketches, and an object library." Web Interface for Statistics Education (WISE)

The Consortium for the Advancement of Undergraduate Statistics Education is a national organization whose mission is to support and advance undergraduate statistics education in four target areas including resources, professional development, outreach, and research.
