View Resource Virtual Reality Polyhedra: The Encyclopedia of Polyhedra

You may as well admit that although you appreciate the beauty of the small snub icosicosidodecahedron, you aren't as clear as you might be on the theory behind it. This site can help; here you can view over 850 polyhedra (three dimensional objects bounded by polygons) in VRML format (there are several VRML plug-ins available for the major browsers, and instructions are provided on the site)....

View Resource Dave's Short Trig Course

This resource, provided by Professor David Joyce of Clark University, is an excellent examples of how Java can be used to explain basic principles of geometry and trigonometry. A Short Course in Trigonometry is divided into thirteen sections, accompanied by instructive Java applets and selected answered exercises. Professor Joyce shows a wonderful ability to simplify complex concepts and demystify...

View Resource Science U: Geometry Center

Science UTM offers online articles and activities "for people who like science." Science U and the web-design and development company that owns and operates the website, Geometry Technologies, were formed as a result of the closure of The Geometry Center at the University of Minnesota. One of the conditions of that grant, which funded The Geometry Center and ended in 1998, was that the Center...

View Resource Illuminations: Math Lessons

To some the word Illuminations may bring to mind Walter Benjamin’s classic work, and still others may imagine those manuscripts that were a product of the medieval intellect and imagination. In this case, the illuminations in question are a set of mathematical teaching and learning tools designed by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics. Their website was redesigned in early 2006, and is...

View Resource Online Mathematics Textbooks

More and more instructional materials in the field of mathematics can be found online today, though for several years, it was difficult to find high-quality textbooks in their entirety. Fortunately Professor George Cain of the Georgia Institute of Technology has created this website to remedy that situation. As Professor Cain notes on his site, "The writing of textbooks and making them freely...
