Happy Pi Day everyone!
To celebrate this year’s Pi Day I’ve decided to put together a list of some of my favorite math resources. Math is one of those subjects most people either love or hate, but as it is every present in our world it is still one we should all understand. Even if you haven’t been interested in it before, check out these sites to see a different side of the STEM world!
- Wolfram MathWorld – a mathematics encyclopedia and resouce
- Khan Academy – free opencourseware on a wide range of math subjects
- MIT OpenCourseWare – free opencourseware from the MIT Mathematics Department
- Coursera – a compilation of free math courses from the world’s leading universities
- TED Talks – intriguing TED Talks about some of math’s most interesting questions
- TED-Ed Math Videos – fun, educational TED videos to get kids interested in math applications
- The Math Dude – podcasts covering mathematics lessons and fun math facts
- PBS Learning Media – a variety of resources, including articles, videos, and interactive media, focused on explaining mathematics
- Mathsframe – includes over 200 math games for ages K-12
- Yummy Math – a site dedicated to demonstrations of how math applies to our everyday lives
Note: I’ve separated these sites in order to identify which are at an elementary level and which are more advanced, but high school students may be better served by those listed under “Adult Education”.
