https://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=83836
<p>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.</p>Tue, 17 May 2005 07:00:00 GMTMendoza, Gerardo; Reich, Dan Temple UniversityInstructional Design Plan for Laws of Exponents

https://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=82920
A large searchable database of integer sequences. The main purpose of this site is to allow researchers to discover if new sequences that they encounter have been previously studied. But, also, the site serves as an information repository for important, well-known sequences. For example, the page in this on-line encyclopedia for the Fibonacci sequence contains many comments, references, formulas and dozens of links to other on-line resources pertaining to Fibonacci and his famous sequence. Warning: If you input 1,1,2,3,5,8,13,21 into the search engine, it will retrieve more than thirty different sequences from the database. If you are looking specifically for the Fibonacci sequence, you could input more terms of the sequence, or you could do a word search. Each sequence is given an ID number on the site. The main entry for the Fibonacci sequence is # A000045.Sat, 08 Jan 2005 08:00:00 GMTSloane, N. J. A. AT&T Shannon LabTouch Natural Numbers App for Android

<p>This lesson received an honorable mention in the 2012 SoftChalk Lesson Challenge.</p>
<p>'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.'</p>Thu, 08 May 2014 23:41:36 GMTPhillip Clark Scottsdale Community CollegePythagorean Theorem and Fermat's Last Theorem

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."Sun, 20 Feb 2005 08:00:00 GMTSarcone, Gianni A. and Waeber, Marie J.
