Below is a list of all the links collected by KaBoL since it first started in 1996, in reverse chronological order. If you are looking for something specific, you might want to try our search engine.

Knot 281
Nick's Mathematical Puzzles
Over 60 puzzles selected for the deceptive simplicity of their statement, or the elegance of their solution. They range over geometry, probability, number theory, algebra, calculus, and logic. All require a certain ingenuity, but usually only pre-college math.
Knot 280
Partition calculators
This page contains applets that calculate the partions of n and discusses some interesting patterns that can be found.
Knot 279
Probability by Surprise
A nice collection of probability applets (including the Birthday problem, Banach's matchbox, and Traffic Jams); they may seem simple at first but they're always surprising...
Knot 278
Mathematical Moments
This AMS site offers electronic brochures that are intended to promote appreciation and understanding of the role mathematics plays in science, nature, technology, and human culture.
Knot 277
Famous Curves
A collection a beautifully drawn curves. Some take awhile to unfold, but they are worth waiting for.
Knot 276
The Poly Pages
This site provides extensive information on the various polyforms: poly-ominoes, -iamonds, -hexes, -cubes etc.
Knot 275
An on-line version of Edwin Abbott's famous novel: Flatland, A romance of many dimensions. This is a geometrical story about a two-dimensional square who visits one- and three-dimensional worlds.
Knot 274
Equilateral Hexagons
A page dedicated to the symmetries of "lenses," equilateral hexagons that you can explore with Jorge's nice lens puzzle applet. See also his Equilateral Pentagons and Polyominoids pages.
Knot 273
More on Pi! This site allows you to search the first four billion binary digits of Pi for a string... Try your phone number.
Knot 272
Cryptography A-Z
This site does a great job of introducing the complex topic of cryptography--an increasingly important field in today's world of computers and the Internet. (Winner of the Sci-Tech Web award 2002).
