Dr. Vogel's Gallery of Calculus Pathologies
Dr. Vogel of the Department of Mathematics at Texas A&M University has collected together various calculus "pathologies," such as a non-differentiable function with partial derivatives everywhere. The point of the gallery "is to challenge and refine the intuition of better calculus students and students in advanced calculus."
Knot 310

National Curve Bank
From the site: "The National Curve Bank is a resource for students of mathematics. We strive to provide features - for example, animation and interaction - that a printed page cannot offer. We also include geometrical, algebraic, and historical aspects of curves, the kinds of attributes that make the mathematics special and enrich classroom learning."
Knot 309

Mathematical Imagery
Mathematical Imagery is a new site presented by the American Mathematical Society on mathematics and art. Other than the featured artwork, the site also provides links to other museums, galleries, articles, and other resources dealing with mathematics and art.
Knot 308

EqWorld
From the site: "The international scientific-educational website EqWorld presents extensive information on solutions to various classes of ordinary differential, partial differential, integral, functional, and other mathematical equations. It also outlines some methods for solving equations, includes interesting articles, gives links to mathematical websites, lists useful handbooks and monographs, and refers to scientific publishers, journals, etc." The site is "intended for researchers, university teachers, engineers, and students all over the world."
Knot 304
