|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."
|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."
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.
|This Week's Finds in Mathematical Physics|
A column on mathematical physics by John Baez where he describes papers, books, and other things that he happens to find interesting and enjoyable. Worth a read.
Having trouble integrating that thorny integral? Maybe The Integrator, which uses the power of webMathematica, can help you out.
|The Mathematical Atlas|
The site is a "collection of short articles designed to provide an introduction to the areas of modern mathematics and pointers to further information, as well as answers to some common (or not!) questions."
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."
From the site: "A Spidron is a planar figure consisting of two alternating sequences of isosceles triangles which, once it is folded along the edges, exhibits extraordinary spatial properties." There are many stunning pitures of spidrons on this site. Well worth a look.
|Mersenne Prime Search|
Do you like big prime numbers? If so, you may want to join The Great Internet Mersenne Prime Search (GIMPS). GIMPS is a distributed computing project with the aim of finding Mersenne primes. They have to date found 9 world record primes. Will you find the next?
From the site: "Math Playground is an action packed site for students in grades K to 6. Practice your math skills, play a logic game and have some fun!"
