So I'll start off:

 

1) http://linuxfreak87.googlepages.com/

1) Covers a lot of stuff, Maths and some physics.

 

2) http://mathworld.wolfram.com/

2) Amazing maths resource, lot of advanced stuff.

 

3) http://www.purplemath.com/

3) Basic and advanced maths here. Good tutorials.

 

4) http://www.dansmath.com/

4) Again more good tutorias and weekly challanges.

 

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

5) LOTS of question solutions here, examples too. This one has helped me a lot in the past and still does :)

 

6) http://www.ics.uci.edu/~eppstein/junkyard/

6) Lots of fun geometry, useful stuff and interesting stuff here.

 

7) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Mathematics

7) As always Wikipedia is a great resource for one and all.

 

8) http://www.research.att.com/~njas/sequences/Seis.html

8) If your interest is number sequences this is the place to go. Useful for research.

 

9) http://eqworld.ipmnet.ru/

9) Equations, equations and yes you guessed - MORE equations. Very useful resorce for reference.

 

10) http://home.att.net/~numericana/

10) Lots of interesting stuff and some other useful links too.

 

11) http://www.mcs.surrey.ac.uk/Personal/R.Knott/

http://archives.math.utk.edu/visual.calculus/

 

"Visual Calculus: a collection of modules that can be used in the studying or teaching of calculus."

 

This is just very simple calculus but it is very nicely set up with tutorials and iteractive modules (LiveMath, Java, and Javascript) and everything is clearly explained so it works great as an introduction to calculus. :)

Whoever is the SFN moderator for math: Please make this thread sticky. This is rather useful for dedicated mathematicans.

I'm one of moderators of this international math forum (largest online in the EARTH)

 

http://www.artofproblemsolving.com

 

This site is rather dedicated to pure problem solving than college courses but it does have forums for college level and international forums (i.e. forums for Spanish people, etc..)

Eeekkk!! The words are too intensely small to read. It looks like dots to me.

 

On the largest math forums I mean.

My single favorite. If you want to play around in a practical way with the borders of mathematics (e.g. numerical mathematics, number theory, prime numbers, etc.), using your own software, then have a look at this:

 

http://www.swox.com/gmp

 

It really is great for mathematics hobbyists and researchers, who write their own software. A perfect piece of work.

I don't like the math forums's website style. It's very unstability.

 

You should try changing the font setting of your browser. I remember I had this trouble when I first joined http://www.artofproblemsolving.com .

 

What do you mean by it's "very unstability"?

 

I also highly recommend AoPS (the Art of Problem Solving) for anyone interested in problem solving mathematics. Uh, just don't go there looking for a place to get your homework problems done for you...the users of those boards really hate when people do that.

No links to add to the groaning table, so just a comment, with whatever weight it may have:

Applied Mathematics is what helps make a whole lot of the (modern) world go, and its applicability to something like Art or Music, or Literature, or any subject that I would guess many reading this would place firmly outside of the realm of Science, isn't just possible, it's been happening ever since we picked up a paintbrush, or started to create music and rhythm. I was surprised to see a comment (in the first post) about the surprise someone experienced when discovering that Music was a mathematical topic. But of course music (being a science of harmonies and sound and beat) is mathematical, and represents one of our earliest attempts to find order and meaning in the world...
