4434Fibonacci Numbers and the Golden Section
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=89324
This excellent site contains a large and interesting selection of material on Fibonacci Numbers and their myriad related concepts. It includes web and text references to the rich literature of Fibonacci numbers. It also features a variety of images, graphics and animations. Many of the topics include student investigations for NCTM standard type explorations. The content includes standard motivational examples and applications in nature, but also mathematical explanations and puzzle pages. The site has already won several awards.Cut-the-Knot!
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=78198
This site is the parent site of an extensive collection of interactive mathematics authored by Alexander Bogomolny and includes an interactive monthly column . The content is accessible to the casual reader but offers much depth along with links to other high-quality resources. Altogether, this site is a mathematician's delight.MacTutor History of Mathematics Archive
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=89142
An award-winning site concerning the history of mathematics. In-depth coverage of numerous people, topics, mathematical curves, and more. Extensively cross-linked; powerful search engine. Rich and growing source of materials.Geogebra
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=274019
GeoGebra is a free and multi-platform dynamic mathematics software for education in secondary schools that joins geometry, algebra and calculus. On the one hand, GeoGebra is a dynamic geometry system--you can do constructions with points, vectors, segments, lines, conic sections as well as functions and change them dynamically afterwards; on the other hand, equations and coordinates can be entered directly. Thus, GeoGebra has the ability to deal with variables for numbers, vectors and points, finds derivatives and integrals of functions and offers commands like Root or Extremum. These two views are characteristic of GeoGebra: an expression in the algebra window corresponds to an object in the geometry window and vice versa.Interactive Mathematics--Games and Puzzles
