American
Mathematics Society

http://www.ams.org/home/page

“The AMS,
founded in 1888 to further the interests of mathematical research and scholarship,
serves the national and international community through its publications,
meetings, advocacy and other programs, which promote mathematical research, its
communication and uses, encourage and promote the transmission of mathematical
understanding and skills, support mathematical education at all levels, advance
the status of the profession of mathematics, encouraging and facilitating full
participation of all individuals, foster an awareness and appreciation of
mathematics and its connections to other disciplines and everyday life.”*

Mathematical Association
of Americahttp://www.maa.org/

“[This is] an organization for people who love the mathematical sciences. A community that values discussion and exposition, for meeting colleagues and building knowledge together. An organization with roots in the nineteenth century and a powerful role in the twenty-first.”*

The Math Forum (from Drexel)

http://mathforum.org

“The Math Forum is the leading online resource for
improving math learning, teaching, and communication since 1992. We are teachers, mathematicians, researchers,
students, and parents using the power of the Web to learn math and improve math
education. We offer a wealth of problems
and puzzles; online mentoring; research; team problem solving; collaborations;
and professional development. Students have fun and learn a lot. Educators
share ideas and acquire new skills..”*

Math on the Web

Broad array of sources from math tools to histories to university math
departments.

PLUS Magazine, Living Mathematics

http://plus.maths.org/content/

*“Plus* is an internet magazine which aims to introduce readers to
the beauty and the practical applications of mathematics. A lot of people don't
have a very clear idea what "real" maths
consists of, and often they don't realise how many
things they take for granted only work because of a generous helping of it.
Apparently, some people even have the idea that it's boring! Weird.
Anyway, we hope that even if you're such a person now, you won't be after
looking through one or two issues of *Plus*, and that you'll come
back and read future issues as they come out….
*Plus* provides articles and podcasts on
any aspect of mathematics, covering topics as diverse as art, medicine,
cosmology and sport, a news section, showing how recent news stories were
often based on some underlying piece of maths that
never made it to the newspapers, reviews of popular maths books, and puzzles for you to sharpen your
wits. We have a regular interview with someone in a maths-related
career, showing the wide range of uses maths gets put
to in the real world. And all past content remains available online, which
besides making for good browsing is, we hope, a useful resource for maths school students and teachers.”*

Pi in the Sky

http://www.pims.math.ca/resources/publications/pi-sky

*“Pi in the Sky* magazine
is primarily aimed at high-school students and teachers, with the main goal of
providing a cultural context/landscape for mathematics. It has a natural
extension to junior high school students and undergraduates, and articles may
also put curriculum topics in a different perspective.”* From the Pacific
Institute of Mathematical Sciences. Free access.

Practice, Formulas, Calculators &
Competitions

Math Forum (from Drexel) Ask Dr. Math

http://mathforum.org/dr.math/

“Ask Dr. Math is a question and answer service
for math students and their teachers. A searchable** **archive is
available by level and topic, as well as summaries of Frequently Asked
Questions.”*

American Mathematics Competitions

http://amc.maa.org/

The American Mathematics Competitions are
“dedicated to the goal of strengthening the mathematical capabilities of our
nation's youth. We believe that one way to meet this goal is to identify, recognize
and reward excellence in mathematics through a series of national contests.”*
