The Mathematical World on the Web
The web is full of math-related sites of all kinds. This page just points you to a few of them, including several which have large collections of mathematical links.
- MAA Online, the online newsletter of the Mathematical Association of America, edited by our own Fernando Gouvêa (so yes, we're biased). This site has a very good students page with lots of career and job information, among other things. We particularly like their career profiles, which show all the nice things people do with their math degrees. Nice book reviews and columns too!
- The Mathematics Digital Library is a new project focused on bringing mathematical resources to the web. It includes the Journal of Online Mathematics, a guide to math-related applets and other resources, and a library of commercial products of all kinds.
- The Mathematica folks have created a page where you can go to get your integrals done for you! Can you stump the Mathematica Integrator? See also their Wolfram|Alpha
- KABOL (Knot a Braid of Links), at the Canadian Mathematical Society's web site, chooses a cool math site each week. There's always something worth looking at, and their list of past choices is a wonderful source of good mathematics on the web.
- Mathematicians appear as characters in many movies. As might be expected, the portraits aren't always too convincing! The Math in the Movies site collects information and discussion about movies with mathematics and mathematicians in them.
- People say funny things about math... Check the Mathematical Quotations Server.
