4434The Prime Pages - Largest Known Primes
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=77729
An assortment of information on largest known primes including lists of examples. Sub-page of "The Primes Pages״COW -- Calculus on the Web
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=83836
This site is devoted to learning mathematics through practice. Many dozens of practice problems are provided in Precalculus, Calculus I - III, Linear Algebra, Number Theory, and Abstract Algebra. The last two subject areas -- referred to as "books" on the site -- are under construction. To each topic within a book (for example, Epsilon and Delta within Calculus I) there is a "module" of approximately 20 to 30 problems. Each module also includes a help page of background material. The modules are interactive to some extent and often provide suggestions when wrong answers are entered.The Prime Pages - Finding Primes and Proving Primality

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.'Pythagorean Theorem and Fermat's Last Theorem

This material is a part of a collection of learning materials at the site of Rio Rancho Math Camp. The site provides ״an intellectually stimulating experience for middle school students who like math, and want to experience hands on, challenging math activities." This particular module is dedicated to Pythagorean Theorem and Fermat's Last Theorem. It contains illustrations, videos, and interactive exervises related to the proofs and history of the two remarkable results in mathematics. Patterns in Pascal's Triangle
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=75221
Displays the first 128 rows of Pascal's Triangle, coloring cells which are divisible by some divisor black, and coloring other cells red. User can change divisor to look for patterns.Fibonacci Sequence and Phi

This particular module is dedicated to the Fibonacci Sequence and number Phi. Archimedes' Laboratory
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=83147
A high-content, award-winning puzzle site that is divided into six main categories: puzzles & tests, optical illusions, custom puzzles, teachers' resource, curiosities, art & language. Among the myriad of fun things, visitors will find number games, riddles, puzzles with downloadable pieces, oxymorons, and even a gift shop. A principal objective throughout the site is the enhancement of critical thinking skills. Heres a quote from Scientific American (May 27, 2003): "This virtual lab borrows the empirical spirit and creative curiosity that Archimedes brought to his work and invites visitors to explore with the same expectations for mind-blowing discovery."The Simpsons Math
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=86625
The sitcom, "The Simpsons" "contains over a hundred instances of mathematics ranging from arithmetic to geometry to calculus, many designed to expose and poke fun at innumeracy." This site offers several "ways to introduce important concepts to students, and to reduce math anxiety and motivate students in courses for non-majors."
