4434Fibonacci Numbers and the Golden Section
https://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.Thu, 10 May 2001 00:00:00 -0700Cut-the-Knot!
https://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.Tue, 26 Nov 2002 00:00:00 -0800MacTutor History of Mathematics Archive

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.Thu, 19 Apr 2001 00:00:00 -0700Geogebra
https://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.Mon, 24 Sep 2007 12:53:41 -0700Interactive Mathematics--Games and Puzzles

https://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.Mon, 22 Apr 2002 00:00:00 -0700Calculus of the Dinner Table: Mathematical Modeling
https://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=407971
Calculus students are presented with a write-pair-share activity that initially involves the construction of a model based on direct variation and later involves the use of calculus as a means by which to analyze the model. Suitable for either Calculus I or Calculus II students. Note: This project has a sequel entitled Fundamental Theorem of Calculus: An Investigation (listed under Interactive Lectures) in which the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus is investigated via the constructed model.Tue, 29 Sep 2009 10:54:50 -0700Fundamental Theorem of Calculus: An Investigation
https://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=407974
Calculus students are presented with a write-pair-share activity that leads them to a practical understanding of the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus. The activity involves analyzing a function that describes eating speed in a hypothetical dinner table experience. Suitable for either Calculus I or Calculus II students.Note: This project has a prequel entitled Calculus of the Dinner Table: Mathematical Modeling (listed under Interactive Lectures) in which students construct the mathematical model for the king's eating speed. This prequel provides an excellent and engaging prelude to this activity.Tue, 29 Sep 2009 10:56:49 -0700
