Encyclopedia of Mathematics (Springer)
The Encyclopedia of Mathematics wiki is an open access resource designed specifically for the mathematics community. The original articles are from the online Encyclopaedia of Mathematics, published by Kluwer Academic Publishers in 2002. With more than 8,000 entries, illuminating nearly 50,000 notions in mathematics, the Encyclopaedia of Mathematics was the most up-to-date graduate-level reference work in the field of mathematics.



Foundations of Mathematics
This is an online resource center for materials that relate to foundations of mathematics (FOM).

Mathematics and Physics for Everybody

This library now contains twelve volumes: Translations and extracts from relatively old texts.

Honors Calculus, Frank Jones

To achieve a thorough understanding of vector calculus, including both problem solving and theoretical aspects. The orientation of the course is toward the problem aspects, though we go into great depth concerning the theory behind the computational skills that are developed.

Student Projects

This is a year-by-year archive of the final written portions of the senior projects.

Mathematical Intensions

The webiste takes apart every major idea in our current mandatory seconday mathematics curriculum (Algebra I--AP Calculus) and asks three historical questions. 1) What were the scientific, social, religious, political and economic intentions of the people who created this mathematics?
2) When and why were these mathematical ideas made into mandatory curriculum? and what parts of the original mathematics have we dropped from our curriculum?
3) Why do we still teach this curriculum? and how will it be transformed by new technology?

Math DLL

To provide an internet site where the MAA community can publish online articles and learning materials of high scientific and educational quality, including those promoting mathematical literacy.

Lecture Notes on Calculus

Computer Musings by Professor Donald E. Knuth
Knuth's programming texts are considered classics. In 1999 American Scientist named The Art of Computer Programming, Volumes 1-3 among the best twelve scientific monographs of the century. The TeX system for document preparation, which Knuth developed during the late 1970s and early 1980s, is still used to produce most of the world's scientific literature in physics and mathematics.




Resonance is a journal of science education, published monthly by the Indian Academy of Sciences, Bangalore, entering its second decade of publication. The journal is primarily directed at students and teachers at the undergraduate level, though some of the articles may go beyond this range. Resonance has a council of editors drawn from institutions all over in India, with a Chief Editor and several Associate Editors located in Bangalore.
