Math on the Web
The web is full of interesting and educational mathematical facts and puzzles, many of them placed on line by real enthusiasts. Try these to start:
Tips & Tricks: Divisibility Rules. Astound your friends with these rules, and your teachers with the reasons
they work. But beware: sometimes it's quicker to JUST DO THE MATH.
DO MATH is a production of the
National Council of Teachers of Mathematics. It includes problems, tricks, and games and reminds
students to "DO MATH. . .and you can do anything!"
The Math Forum Student Center is presented by
Swarthmore College in Pennsylvania. This is a terrific collection of math facts, activities, challenges,
tips and tricks, and more. (Adults might want to check the homepage for The Math Forum for additional information.)
