4434A History of Pi
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=235021
This site provides an extensive and cross-linked history of the development of pi. It is a subpage of the MacTutor History of Mathematics Archive that is listed separately in MERLOT.Creative Geometry
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=273999
Creative Geometry is a set of web pages designed by a geometry teacher and written for both geometry teachers and geometry students. In these web pages, teachers and students will find creative and interesting "hands-on" projects for most topics in the geometry curriculum. Each project is designed to help students understand, remember, and find value in the concepts of geometry.Easier Fibonacci Puzzles
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=84511
A collection of puzzles whose answers involve the Fibonacci numbers. The puzzles are of two types: easier and harder; the goal is to explain WHY the puzzles have their respective answers. A link to the page containing the harder puzzles is provided. This site is a sub-page of the larger site, Fibonacci Numbers and the Golden Section.Homework and Study Help
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=386927
Review notes over concepts. Videos as well.M.C. Escher
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=84510
This site provides a comprehensive record of M.C. Escher's life, including links to approximately twenty images of his works of art as well as to a number of additional resources. Excellent presentation.S.O.S. Mathematics--Matrix Algebra
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=273979
This site contains reference material in Matrix Algebra. Topics covered include matrix operations, linear equations, determinants, eigenvectors and eigenvalues. S.O.S. Mathematics--Matrix Algebra is a part of an independent, commercial site that offers straightforward technical assistance primarily to high school and college students.Interactive Mathematics
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=82036
This site can be used equally well for demonstration materials in lectures and for tutorial purposes. Topics range from basic algebra through first-year calculus. Solved exercises throughout make the site especially appropriate for individual study. Interactive elements are added using LiveMath and Macromedia Flash.Differential Equations Videos
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=349776
This is a complete set of videos for my on-line differential equations class. All standard topics are addressed: modeling, first order equations, constant coefficient linear equations, Euler and Runge Kutta methods, Laplace transforms, partial differential equations, series solutions and first order systems.Type I and Type II Errors - Making Mistakes in the Justice System
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=83853
This webpage uses the criminal trials in the US Justice system to illustrate hypothesis testing. An applet allows the user to examine the probability of a Type I and Type II errors under various conditions. An applet allows users to visualize p-values and the power of a test.Measures of Central Tendency & Outliers
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=469504
Share with your students why the presence of an outlier affects which measure of central tendency to report. Feel free to modify the presentation to fit the needs of your students. Included at the end are additional online resources to further engage your students in their learning about the mean, median, and mode.
