This article is by a math teacher in Newfoundland who created an "enrichment project entitled Cross Cultural Story Problems in Math." She had her students exchange math problems they created with students from Hawaii, South Africa, Israel and the United States. Teachers who are looking for lively math projects for their students may find this web site helpful.
Exercises in Math Readiness for University Study -- Bilingual
The Department of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Saskatchewan created this web site. The exercises are "on those high school mathematics topics that seem to be most important for university study in mathematics, the other sciences, engineering, and commerce." This site is great for students and teachers of math and science. The site is available in English, French, Ukrainian and Georgian.
Frequently Asked Questions in Mathematics
"The FAQ list is a compilation of knowledge of interest to most professional and amateur mathematicians, ranging from advanced topics such as Wiles' proposed proof to Fermat's Last Theorem to the list of Fields Medal winners." The author describes his site as ". . . mathematical gossip or perhaps non-trivial mathematical trivia."
Gordon's Games, Simple Math, Not So Simple Math, and Not Just Math
The four booklets on this web site are "intended to be a resource for those who teach primary math, k-3, ages 4 to 8. Beginning teachers, home schooling parents, spec. ed. teachers, teachers of teachers, and teachers wishing to supplement a text could find ideas of value here." The books are: "Gordon's Games," "Simple Math," "Not So Simple Math," and "Not Just Math." You can read the booklets online, or, for a small fee, the author will send them to you.
Learning to Learn: Math Links
This web site is an annotated list of math links from around the world. The site is part of the University of Toronto's "Learning to Learn" web site. "Learning to Learn" is a program for "learners, teachers, and researchers. It teaches the value of self-awareness as a critical part of learning."
Making a Math in the Mall Display
The purpose of the Math in the Mall project "was and is to change the attitudes of student-teachers to mathematics." This web site suggests hands-on activities for a "Math in the Mall" display. The Department of Mathematics at Simon Fraser University created the site.
This Cambrian College web site will "guide you through the confusing maze of math." The site provides useful information for math students--such as how to take effective notes and the basics of trigonometry.
Math Central -- Bilingual
Math Central is "an Internet service for mathematics teachers and students from kindergarten to grade twelve." This useful and informative site is funded in part by SchoolNet in cooperation with the Canadian Mathematical Society. The Department of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Regina hosts the site.
Math History Theme Page
This resource page provides a large list of links to math history sites such as "Mathematicians of the African Diaspora" to "Famous Problems in the History of Mathematics." The page is a useful resource for students and teachers.
Math Lesson Plans
This web site from University College of the Cariboo in Kamloops, British Columbia, provides links to lesson plans for kindergarten to grade twelve math teachers.
Math Projects for Science Fairs
The Canadian Mathematical Society (CMS) created this web site. The CMS believes that there are not enough math projects in science fairs. The site provides suggestions for potential projects.
Math Resources for College Students
This web site from Langara College provides a comprehensive list of annotated links to math web sites. You can search the site by topic or by category.
Math Teacher's Home Page
This web site catalogues a plethora of educational information and links for math teachers. The site authors believe that "It is important that teachers use . . . technology to assist 'all' students with their understanding of mathematics." This noteworthy and regularly updated site includes a glossary of mathematical terms and lesson ideas.
Mathematical Expressions on the WWW
"The primary goal of this project is to bring the power of mathematical expression to as many people as possible, and as quickly and easily as possible." This award-winning web site teaches you how to "insert mathematical expressions directly into your html." The site includes a page of examples.
Mathematically Interesting Games
This web site offers three interactive games. The goal is to discover winning strategies and to "prove mathematically that they are winning strategies."
Mathematics Foundation of Canada (MFC)
The MFC mission is to "Ensure that the mathematically talented high school or middle school student receives mathematics education appropriate for a future mathematician by providing suitable supplementary mathematics programs and need-based scholarships to Canadian students." The Mathematics Foundation of Canada is the re-born Mathematics Foundation of America (Canadian Chapter).
"The goal of this web site is to help preschoolers increase their interest in math." The authors of the site have incorporated "interesting cartoon characters of sea animals" into "math activities." Kids will have fun at this site playing counting, adding and multiplying games. The site also includes word games, a children's art gallery and a section for parents.
Pacific Institute for the Mathematical Sciences
"The Pacific Institute for the Mathematical Sciences (PIMS) is dedicated to promoting all aspects of the mathematical sciences by stimulating, coordinating and facilitating the activities of the mathematical scientists in Alberta and British Columbia and by linking them more closely with mathematical scientists in the rest of Canada and the world."
Pi and Other Constants
This web site provides links to academic papers "concerning computation of various familiar transcendentals."
The Pi Pages
"The story of pi reflects the most seminal, the most serious and sometimes the silliest aspects of mathematics. A surprising amount of the most important mathematics and a significant number of the most important mathematicians have contributed to its unfolding--directly or otherwise." This web site continues to explain the "Pi Story." The site also includes "Pi Records" and links to "Pi Literature."
Resources for Math Teachers
The listed resources were "produced at" Memorial University of Newfoundland "by students or faculty members." This web site has a lot of useful information for math teachers; however, the site's information on provincial curriculum is out of date and most of the links do not work.
Statistical Society of Canada (SSC) -- Bilingual
"The mission of the Statistical Society of Canada is to encourage the development and use of statistics and probability." The SSC's web site includes listings of meetings, publications, members and employment opportunities.
University of Toronto Mathematics Network (MathNet)
