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 Topology Atlas

Hosted by York University, with support from University of Florida, University of Tennessee at Martin, Nipissing University, York University, and the University of Milan, the Topology Atlas Website calls itself a publisher of information related to topology. The site amounts to a vast repository of documents for mathematicians and others interested in topology. A preprints section offers documents...
View Resource Native American Geometry

This Website, sprung from a gifted-and-talented program for K-12 students in Arizona, presents the interesting world of Native American geometry, a system based on the proportional relationship between the radius and circumference of a circle. The eye-pleasing site, divided into sections that include Foundations, Education, Designs, and Anthropology, would be appealing to curious Web surfers along...
View Resource Steiner Surfaces

Dr. Adam Coffman, a mathematics professor at Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne, is the author of an excellent overview of Steiner surfaces. The material presented on his Web site is certainly not for anyone, but will mainly be of interest to people with strong, advanced math skills. Coffman begins with some necessary background information and then discusses all the geometric types...
View Resource The Mathematical Art of M.C. Escher

M.C. Escher is a widely known and popular artist whose work depicts complex, and often impossible, geometrical patterns. This Web site examines the mathematics behind his drawings. Many examples of Escher's work are given, illustrating mathematical principles such as the shape and the logic of space. Tessellations and polyhedra are common building blocks of the drawings. It is quite interesting to...
View Resource University of Minnesota: The Geometry Center

The University of Minnesota Geometry Center is a mathematics research and education center that supports math and computer science research, mathematical visualization, software development, application development, video animation production, and K-16 math education. The website describes some of their projects that use technology to visualize and communicate mathematics and related sciences....
View Resource Geometry and Topology

Geometry and Topology is "a fully refereed international journal dealing with all aspects of geometry and topology and their applications." The publisher, Geometry & Topology Publications (GTP), is a non-profit organization based in the Mathematics Department of the University of Warwick at Coventry, UK. Visitors can browse the journal, available free of charge electronically, or search by keyword...
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 Geometry Step by Step from the Land of the Incas

Geometry Step by Step from the Land of the Incas is an interactive website, created by Antonio Gutierrez, that offers a variety of resources for teaching and learning about geometry, including music that plays in the background. The website mixes sound, science, and Incan history in order to raise students' interest in Euclidean geometry. On this website, visitors will find geometry problems,...
View Resource University of California, Irvine: The Geometry Junkyard-Lesson Plans and Teaching Materials

This collection of online geometric teaching materials and lesson plans was assembled by David Eppstein, a professor in the Computer Science Department at the University of California, Irvine, and creator of the Geometry Junkyard (reported on in the June 9, 1999, Scout Report for Science & Engineering). This site offers links to an eclectic assortment of educational lessons and resources including...
