http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=76247
This site provides an extremely large encyclopedia-style collection of material related to mathematics at the college level and beyond. Much of the material deals with advanced topics. A large number of animated GIFs and java applets are presented as visual aids and the site has won numerous web awards. The World of Mathematics is hosted by Wolfram Research, Inc., and is offered as a free service to the mathematics community.The Math Forum - Internet Mathematics Library
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=89910
A huge list of resources in various topics of mathematics and math education.Encyclopaedia of Mathematics
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=87398
This is a graduate level reference work with 8,000 entries illuminating nearly 50,000 mathematical notions. If you are looking for the definition of a term, this site most likely has it.Each entry is actually a small survey article on the subject in question, written by an expert. Articles list further references, so that deeper study after a quick refresher is possible.Thales of Miletus

http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=76721
This is a sub-page of the large and comprehensive Eric Weisstein's World of Mathematics site which is separately reviewed elsewhere on MERLOT. At the time of review this probability and statistics area listed 19 subtopics including Bayesian analysis, descriptive statistics, probability, random numbers, random walks, and statistical tests. Approximately 350 separate items on probability and statistics were included.When will I use math?
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=421510
This site is designed to answer many important questions regarding carrers and professional placement of math majors. It contains very useful statistical data on the subject as well as information on different connections between mathematics and real life. The site can be very useful for all kinds of professional orientation sessions for math majors.Wolfram Alpha Mathematics Examples
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=405534
This site is the mathematics area of the larger Wolfram Alpha project – described as a computational knowledge engine to make the world’s knowledge computable. In response to natural language questions it provides direct answers, explanations, related information and comparisons. In addition to mathematics the main site offers, for example, chemistry, engineering, places and geography, money and finance. Mathematica is used as the underlying software engine.From the point of view of mathematics education it poses advantages and disadvantages in the way of most technology – but the free availability of a powerful mathematical tool opens up vast new possibilities for students and teachers to explore. For the professional mathematician it’s not clear if it solves anything that their stand alone version of Mathematica could not.World of Mathematics--Recreational Mathematics
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=76722
This is a sub-page of the large and comprehensive Eric Weisstein's World of Mathematics site which is separately reviewed elsewhere on MERLOT. At the time of review this recreational mathematics area listed ten subtopics including: cryptograms, dissection, illusions, magic squares, and puzzles. A total of approximately 140 separate recreational mathematics items were included.
