Favorite nodes in the World Wide Web

These are some places we’ve enjoyed visiting. This unofficial, unscientific, purely personal list is sure to wax and wane as we continue to wander the Web.

  • NRICH—A project at the University of Cambridge that aims to promote the fun of maths via the web. On the first of each month an online magazine called Interact is published, which contains articles, puzzles, interesting problems, and challenges that can be used for math clubs. Solutions from students are also published. NRICH’s  “Ask a Mathematician” service has a one-to-one dialogue section and an “open discussion” section that any registered member can participate in. Registration is free
  • Manipula Math with Java— A site full of interactive Java applications. If you haven’t enabled your browser for Java yet, now’s the time!
  • Sumfun—A collection of math links—but what links! The product of two math-loving parents in Toronto, Canada, it’s well work bookmarking.
  • Planet Science—This award-winning Web site is the electronic arm of New Scientist magazine. (This is a very engaging site—please try to remember where you found it and come back to Quantum now and then!)
  • Eisenhower National Clearinghouse—The Eisenhower National Clearinghouse for Mathematics and Science Education collects all science and mathematics instructional materials in all media, real and virtual, produced by teachers, Federal agencies, commercial entities, and others.
  • The Math Forum—This Swarthmore College site has areas set aside for students, teachers, parents, and researchers.
  • Hot AIR—The online version of the Annals of Improbable Research. These are the folks who bring you the Ig Nobel Prizes.
  • The Discovery Channel—This Web site offers links to some very interesting places in addition to showcasing its television shows.
