Resources for Math on the Web

Table of Contents:

Textbooks, math courses, and practice problems

K-12

  • EM Teachline: EMTeachline, an educational software company, offers Arithmetic, Pre-Algebra, Algebra, Trigonometry and Hyperbolic Trigonometry Courses for school age students, math teachers, and anyone else who is interested in solving math problems. A free online collection of math tests comprises 6,000+ math problems and provides fully explained solutions of algebraic inequalities, trigonometric equations, and more in MathML format.
  • First Course in Algebra: "You're about to learn that x is to mathematics as "cat" is to English. The hope is that the next time you find yourself faced with x, you'll think: One Mathematical Cat, Please! and laugh a bit... making mathematics a little less stressful, and a little more fun.
  • Le Active Math: LeActiveMath targets an innovative third generation eLearning system for high school and college or university level classrooms that can also be used in informal contexts for self learning. It adapts to the learner and learning context and comprises personalization, tutorial dialogues, open student modeling and interactivity that is tool-supported for active and exploratory learning.
  • Virtual Laboratories in Probability and Statistics: The goal of this project is to provide free, high quality, interactive, web-based resources for students and teachers of probability and statistics. Basically, our project consists of an integrated set of components that includes expository text, applets, data sets, biographical sketches, and an object library.

Higher education

  • 18.013A Calculus with Applications, Spring 2005: One of many "Open CourseWare" offerings from MIT, this has lots of interactive features as part of the material.
  • 3.016 Mathematics for Materials Scientists and Engineers: From the course description: "This course covers the mathematical techniques necessary for understanding of materials science and engineering topics such as energetics, materials structure and symmetry, materials response to applied fields, mechanics and physics of solids and soft materials." In addition to using MathML, the course also features Mathematica notebooks for doing computations.
  • Corso di Analisi Matematica: A course in Mathematical Analysis (Italian)
  • First Course in Linear Algebra: This is the online XML/MathML version of the free textbook "A First Course in Linear Algebra." If this is your first visit to this page, please read the material below about your choice of browsers and the likely need to install additional fonts. Otherwise, if you a returning visitor, click on through to the table of contents with the link immediately below. Previous versions are archived at the bottom of this page.
  • Practice Interactive Online Actuarial Problems: Interactive problems adapted from or similar to those given on past actuarial exams written by Elias Saab.
  • Virtual Laboratories in Probability and Statistics: The goal of this project is to provide free, high quality, interactive, web-based resources for students and teachers of probability and statistics. Basically, our project consists of an integrated set of components that includes expository text, applets, data sets, biographical sketches, and an object library.

Blogs

Musings

Jaque Distler's blog: "Thoughts on Science, Computing, and Life on Earth." Perhaps the first blog to make use of MathML.

The String Coffee Table

A group blog on physics.

Equation libraries, dictionaries, and other reference works

EquationSheet.com

A searchable database of equations, constants, symbols, and SI units as well as utilities for unit conversions and LaTeX to PNG image conversion and LaTeX to MathML conversion.

Numerical Algorithms Group (NAG) Documentation

NAG publishes several hundred pages of supporting documentation in MathML format

Journals, research papers, and other writings

Chemistry Central Journal

A chemistry journal that uses MathML. Eg, see journal.chemistrycentral.com/content/1/1/21 for an example that has lots of math in it.

Indiana University Mathematics journal

A research mathematics journal using MathML to publish abstracts.

New York Journal of Mathematics demo articles

A few articles from the New York Journal of Mathematics have been given demonstration presentations as XHTML+MathML (by porting TeX source to GELLMU)

Pacific Journal of Math

This respected mathematics research journal publishes abstracts in MathML.

The Yolo Reflector

A monograph on telescope design by Arthur S. Leonard, with a MathML equation summary.

Authoring tools

ASCIIMathML

Some webpages and a JavaScript program that translates ASCII math expressions to presentation MathML. Also shows how to combine the script with standard MathML and inline SVG in a valid XHTML document that works in several browsers.

Connexions

is a rapidly growing collection of free scholarly materials and a powerful set of free software tools to help authors publish and collaborate, instructors rapidly build and share custom courses, learners explore the links among concepts, courses, and disciplines.

Other resources

W3C Math Home

MathML is intended to facilitate the use and re-use of mathematical and scientific content on the Web, and for other applications such as computer algebra systems, print typesetting, and voice synthesis. MathML can be used to encode both the presentation of mathematical notation for high-quality visual display, and mathematical content, for applications where the semantics plays more of a key role such as scientific software or voice synthesis.
