This site contains several hundred articles concerned with mathematics and physics. General topics include Number Theory, Combinatorics, Geometry, Algebra, Calculus & Differential Equations, Probability & Statistics, Set Theory & Foundations, Reflections on Relativity, History, and Physics. The articles under each general heading are highly varied, many are quite advanced, and there is no apparent organizational scheme. For example, under Calculus & Differential Equations there is a proof that pi is irrational, a examination of the Limit Paradox, a discussion of Ptolemy's Orbit, and an historical review of the cycloid among many other articles. Visitors can browse by topics or search by keyword. (Anyone with information on the identity of the site author please contact the MERLOT submitter.)Mi tarea
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=88352
This is an exceptional site for locating all types of content material in creating modules. The are links to the following disciplines: Sciences, History, Art and Culture, Humanities, and general resources. On several of the links, one can find audio files, e.g., Christmas carols. While this site is designed for native speakers in middle school or a secondary level, it is quite appropriate for Spanish language students having an intermediate language proficiency or higher in secondary or college courses.Applied Discrete Structures

A collection of JavaScript for computing permutations and combinations counting with or without repetitions.Diamond Theory
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=76660
Symmetry properties of the 4x4 array. The invariance of symmetry displayed in the author's Diamond 16 Puzzle (online) suggests insights into finite geometry, group theory, and combinatorics.Mudd Math Fun Facts
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=84454
This archive is designed as a resource for enriching your courses with mathematical Fun Facts! It is designed to pique the interest of students in different areas of mathematics. The fun facts were originally conceived as five minute warm ups at the beginning of lectures so that non mathematics majors would not think math was just calculus. Presentation suggestions are also given.Polyforms

Background and description of polyform sets as a new puzzle genre.The Diamond 16 Puzzle
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=76388
In solving this puzzle, you permute rows, columns, and quadrants in a 4x4 array of 2-color tiles to make a variety of symmetric designs. A link to underlying theory is provided.
