A list of sites on the Internet found to be useful for enhancing
curriculum and teacher professional growth. It is updated regularly to keep
up with the tremendous number of new World Wide Web sites.
Eisenhower National Clearinghouse (ENC)
The information source for K-12 math and science teachers.
A program developed by EQUALS, at the Lawrence Hall of Science,
California, Berkeley, California. The goal of FAMILY MATH is to encourage
underrepresented groups (especially girls and minority students) to enter
careers that use mathematics. FAMILY MATH is, of course, family-based.

Image Processing in Mathematics
The goal of the METIP project is to use digital image processing
to help meet these objectives. In particular, we have developed a series
of applications designed to allow students to manipulate digitized images
of their choice. These materials are intended to be used in enrichment activities
rather than part of a standard classroom curriculum. Teachers can play various
roles with these activities; for example, they can catalyze student learning
by leading discussions of the concepts students have explored on the computer.
We believe that the World Wide Web opens interesting possibilities
for educational materials in the way that it combines hypertext, interaction,
multi-media, and communication at a distance, particularly since users can
construct their own Web contributions. The Forum is committed to being a
resource which is built upon the
activity of the teachers, students, and researchers who use it.
Mathematics and Molecules
Molecular Modeling, is one of the fastest growing fields in
science. It may vary from building and visualizing molecules to performing
complex calculations on molecular systems.
Ask Dr. Math
In fall of 1994 we discovered a dormant project called "Ask
Prof. Maths," where K12 students could send math questions to 'experts'
and get personal answers. We decided to revive the program, using Swarthmore
College math students as 'Math Doctors' -- around here we call them the
'Swat Team' -- students who love to answer questions from other students.
MathMagic is a K-12 telecommunications project developed in
El Paso, Texas. It provides strong motivation for students to use computer
technology while increasing problem-solving strategies and communications
skills. MathMagic posts challenges in each of four categories (k-3, 4-6,
7-9 and 10-12) to trigger each registered team to pair up with another team
and engage in a problem-solving dialog. When an agreement has been reached,
one solution is posted for every pair.

Assocation of Teachers of Mathematics. The Association of Teachers
of Mathematics aims to relate mathematical education more closely to the
powers and needs of the learner. The Association was formed in 1950 and
has about 4000 members, mainly teachers in primary and secondary schools.
Calculus&Mathematica Distance Education Program
The Calculus&Mathematica Distance Education Program (C&M
DEP) runs on the electronic highway to bring top rural and inner city high
school students to the university and to send top university undergraduates
to rural and inner city high schools to form a human, electronic community
devoted to mathematics learning.
Educational Resources for K-12 Mathematics Teachers
This site at the University of Utah contains a very nice well-organized
annotated links to various sites of resources for K-12 mathematics teachers.
NCTM - National Council of Teachers of Mathematics
Founded in 1920 as a not-for-profit professional and educational
association, NCTM is the largest organization dedicated to the improvement
of mathematics education and to meeting the needs of teachers of mathematics.

Houghton Mifflin Math Center
The Houghton Mifflin Math Center contains math resources for
teachers, students and
parents. Included, for example, is a bibliography for experiences of math
through literature for students in grades K-2, brain teasers for grades
3 and above, a parent handbook for helping your child understand mathematics
and many math links.
