http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=90110
This is a site that contains a number of types of material that can be used in teaching about chance probability. Lesson plans, syllabi, suggested activities, and data sets are available. The data sets contain interesting information for students such as: quarterback passing rating data, baseball streaks, and baseball salaries that can be used to illustrate means, medians, etc.Self-Assess Algebra Review
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=434072
This site is a selection of mathlets designed for "geometry classes to review basic algebra skills in such a way that they can check their answers and/or get hints as to how to proceed. The idea behind these "procedure-based" dynamic worksheets is to provide students the opportunity to review and practice algebra skills with problems they create, while at the same time providing a means for students to check their answers and to get a hint if needed. The hints will walk the student through the problem in a step by step manner.״The Real Numbers

This lesson received an honorable mention in the 2012 SoftChalk Lesson Challenge.'In this lesson we begin to examine what happens when we have a list of numbers, known as a sequence. We will determine when these lists of numbers, or sequences, have a pattern, when we can generalize that pattern to find any term and what it looks like if we sum up the numbers in the sequence. Let's start off with a few definitions and some terminology and from there we will see how we can determine their behavior.'Introduction to Differential Equations
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=859871
This lesson received an honorable mention for the 2011 SoftChalk Lesson Challenge.'Differential equations show up in many areas of science and technology. In fact, they turn up any time there is a relation involving some continuously varying quantities and ther rates of change. We have actually dealt with differntial equations before. A common modeling problem involving differential equations is the determination of the velocity of a ball falling which has an acceleration which is the acceleration due to gravity minus the acceleration due to air resistance. This is a differential equation because the derivative of the velocity of the ball depends on the velocity, thus finding the velocity as a function of time involves.' solving a differential equation.'In this section we willExamine the basic form of differential equationsVerify solutions to differential equationsDetermine slope fields for differential equationsFind solutions to differential equations numerically using Euler's methodFind solutions to differential equations using seperation of variables.'1st Grade Splash Math App for iPad

This is a resource that can be used in conjunction with an Abstract Algebra class. It contains definitions and theorems regarding abstract algebra. Included is a Table of Contents that lists the topics such as Integers, Functions, Groups, Polynomials, Galois Theory, Unique Factorization, etc. There is also a link to an online study guide for the topic.Advanced Algebra II: Activities and Homework
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=434004
This is a free online textbook designed for the Advanced Algebra instructor. According to the author, he "developed a set of in-class assignments, homework and lesson plans, that work for me and for other people who have tried them. The complete set comprises three separate books that work together:•The Homework and Activities Book contains in-class and homework assignments that are given to the students day-by-day.” “•The" target=״_blank״>http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=434004“•The Concepts Book provides conceptual explanations, and is intended as a reference or review guide for students; it is not used when teaching the class.” •The" target=״_blank״>http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=434001•The Teacher's Guide provides detailed lesson plans; it is your guide to how the author “envisioned these materials being used when I created them (and how I use them myself) " target=״_blank״>http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=434006 Instructors should note that this book probably contains more information than you will be able to cover in a single school year.”Algebra
