(Eric. W. Weissten)
A complete mathematical resource, assembled over more than a decade by Internet encyclopedist Eric W. Weisstein with assistance from the mathematics and Internet communities. MathWorld is a comprehensive and interactive mathematics encyclopedia intended for students, educators, math enthusiasts, and researchers. The site is continuously updated to include new material and incorporate new discoveries. Categories covered include: algebra, applied mathematics, calculus and analysis, discrete mathematics, foundations of mathematics, geometry, history and terminology, number theory, probability and statistics, recreational mathematics, and topology.
"The Wolfram Functions Site was created as a resource for the educational, mathematical, and scientific communities. It contains the world's most encyclopedic collection of information about mathematical functions. The site also details the interrelationships between the special functions of mathematical physics and the elementary functions of mathematical analysis as well as the interrelationships between the functions in each group."
This encyclopedia has over 1,000 entries on both elementary and advanced mathematics topics. Entries are cross-referenced.
Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences (Neil Sloane, AT&T Research)
Expanding on The Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences (STACK QA246.5 .S66 1995), this database has over 100000 sequences. Users can enter a sequence, word, or sequence number into the search box and the database will return a list of sequences that contain the information provided. References and links are provided for the sequences returned.

Math Database (1931-present)
This is the web version of Zentralblatt für Mathematik / Mathematics Abstracts. This database covers volumes the period 1931-present, and current contents of new publications of Zbl. Math. It contains more than 1.8 million references from 3,000 serials and journals. Free search results are limited to three citations for no-subscribers.
arXiv.org (Cornell University Library)
Hosted by the Cornell University Library, this archive provides searchable access to 359,541 research papers in physics, mathematics, computer science, and quantitative biology.
Math Monographs (Cornell University Library)
"The Cornell University Library Historical Mathematics Monographs is a collection of selected monographs with expired copyrights chosen from the mathematics field." Monographs can only be viewed one page at a time.
University of Michigan
Historical Mathematics Collection
"The University of Michigan Historical Mathematics Collection is a growing library of books selected from the University of Michigan mathematics collection that have been digitized to improve access and to preserve the content of these books. All of the books in this collection were published in the 19th or early 20th century." The entire document can be viewed at once.
TechXtra is a subject specific search engine that covers mathematics, computing, and engineering. It provides access to "articles, books, the best websites, the latest industry news, job announcements, technical reports, technical data, full text eprints, the latest research, teaching and learning resources and more." However, many of the articles are not in full-text, so use the Full Text Periodical Directory to see if they are available through the Ely Library.

Applied Math and Science Education Respository
(National Science Digital Library)
"AMSER is a portal of educational resources and services built specifically for use by those in Community and Technical Colleges but free for anyone to use." The resources on this site are organized by Library of Congress or GEM Subject classification taxonomies and are annotated with information on resource type, audience, language, and a description.
Math Forum (Drexel University)
Topics include math resources by subject (K-12, college, through advanced), search for math, math education, key issues in math, a showcases area, a student center, teacher's place, research division, and parents & citizens area.
Web Interface for Statistics Education
(Claremont Graduate University)
WISE features a collection of online, interactive tutorials covering statisitcal concepts. Exercises are provided with te tutorials to help students practice what they are learning.
The History of
Mathematics Archive (School of Mathematical and Computational Sciences,
University of St. Andrews)
This History of Mathematics archive is part of the Mathematical MacTutor system developed at the School of Mathematical and Computational Sciences University of St. Andrews for learning and experimenting with mathematics. The archive contains the biographies of more than 1100 mathematicians plus some articles on the development of mathematical ideas cross-referenced to the biographies. Also, there are chronologies, special topics, and birthplace maps.
New Mathwright Library
More than 150 workbooks with examples, demos, and interactive modules that can be downloaded for free along with Mathwright Library Player 2.1 for viewing on Windows-based PCs are available on this site.

Errors in Undergraduate Mathematics
Eric Schechter (Mathematics Department, Vanderbilt University) describes the errors he has seen most frequently in undergraduate mathematics, the likely causes of these errors, and their remedies.
Student Center (Math Forum,
This site includes the ever popular Ask Dr. Math, resources by grade level, math challenges, math tips & tricks, and an undergraduate research database.
This web site uses Mathematica to quickly solve problems submitted by users. Use the menu on the left side to select problem types.
The Integrator (Solving Integrals)
The Integrator is a web interface to Mathematica 3.0. The heart of The Integrator is Mathematica's built-in Integrate function--the same one you use when you access Mathematica directly. When you type in an integral, The Integrator's web server sends a MathLink message to the Mathematica kernel, which then does the integral using the built-in Integrate function. The result is sent via MathLink from the kernel to the Mathematica front end, which produces typeset output. This output then returns to the kernel, where it is embedded in a web page using the Mathematica Symbolic HTML package.

and Educational Quotation Server at Westfield State University - Dr. Julian
This site includes Dr. Fleron's searchable database of quotations that he has used in his mathematics classes at Westfield State University, his published paper "Quotations for Every Mathematics Class" and other reference materials: published papers on using quotations; books of quotations; and other electronic quotation databases.
Mathematicians of the African
"In Mathematics, more than any other field of study, have we heard proclamations and statements similar to, 'The Negro is incapable of succeeding.' Ancient and present achievements contradict such statements. One of the purposes of this web site is to exhibit the inaccuracy of those proclamations by exhibiting the accomplishments of the peoples of Africa and the African Diaspora within the Mathematical Sciences."
This site provides comprehensive coverage of women mathematicians and includes biographies with an explanation of each woman's mathematical accomplishments, photographs, selected references, and links to other sites related to the mathematician or their particular area of mathematics.
