Housed at Swarthmore, MathMagic is a K-12 telecommunications project
developed by Alan Hodson, a math teacher at Wiggs Middle School in El Paso
Independant School District. It is designed to motivate students to utilize
computer technology while increasing problem-solving strategies. Challenge
questions are posted to registered teams of students divided into four
grade levels (K-3, 4-6, 7-9, and 10-12). Paired teams use email and the
MathMagic listserv to communicate and present a single solution to to MathMagic
Listserv.

Mathematical Resources - a lot of great math resources for teachers

http://members.stratos.net/jetta/math1.html

This web page is neat because it challenges the kids to explain how they found thier solutions. I like the rationale for the page as well. Each day has a new challenge for kids. Students can e-mail thier answers and rationals in to "Aunty Math" and get a reply.

http://www.dcmrats.org/AuntyMath.html

I found this web site to be very helpful for any subject. But for math, students can get help with any kind of problem they have by going to this web site and clicking on math and then clicking on the kind of help they need. Students will find tutors, help for any kind of math problem, and activities to help them.

This site also has a variety of resources that would be helpful to teachers and students both. There are places for students to ask questions about math and for teachers to ask for suggestions on teaching different things in math. There are also complete lessons and units that can be used in the classroom.

At this web site you can find help for math from grades K through graduate school in college. "Help for all ages!"

This web site is similiar to some computer math games that I have seen. This site could be used if students need additional practice in addition, subtraction, multiplication, or division. I know that worksheets aren't the best way to teach but sometimes certain students need additional practice. They could use this web site saving the teacher the time from making worksheets. It also saves on paper!

This web site is very informative for teachers and students studying to become teachers. There is much information about being a math teacher, teaching K-4 math, and other areas that deal with math. I kept this web site on file so that I could use it for reference. I really think this is one of the best web sites I found for math teachers. I went to Teacher Education and Professional Development to check it out and it talks about NCATE here, ideas for teaching math K-4, and other things to help math teachers.

I liked this web site because it focused on female "heroes" in mathmatics. This could be a neat way to highlight the involvement of women in math. It would provide positive role models for girls who think that math is all for guys. It is also great for connecting history and math. This homepage could help a teacher make mathematics seem more real.

This site tells about several famous women mathematicians. It might help persuade girls that they can do math too!

Larry Riddle, a member of the mathematics department at Agnes Scott
College in Atlanta, Georgia, has students researching and writing biographies
which portray the achievements of women in the field of mathematics. Access
is both alphabetical and chronological. Although most entries have brief
citations, there are only a few completed biographies with photos. However,
this is a site which is organized to grow through contributions of on going
student projects and additional materials from other sources. Other resources
maintained at this site include:

Links to Other Resources on Women Mathematicians

Bibliographies about Women in Science and
Technology

Organizations Promoting Women in Math, Science,
and Technology
