Useful Maths links

Recommended Posts

There are many useful resources related to mathematics, available for free on the Internet. Among them, the following two are very useful in that they bring a good collection of links to educational videos on mathematics - including audio and video lectures and documentaries - to help learn mathematics in an interesting way.

 

1) Audio and video lectures on mathematics from colleges and universities.

2) Video lectures and documentaries on mathematics for a general audience.

A good resource is Encyclopaedia of Mathematics, edited by Michiel Hazewinkel. It is online and can be found here.

 

The Encyclopaedia of Mathematics is updated on a regular basis to remain a quick, precise source of reference to mathematical definitions, concepts, explanations, surveys, examples, terminology and methods, which will prove useful for all mathematicians and other scientists who encounter mathematics in their work.

 

I have personally used this Encyclopaedia many times. The entries are written by experts.

Your link didn't work for me but I googled the title and editor's name and got this...is this the one? (the URL ending is different to the one you provided):

 

http://eom.springer.de/

 

Looks like a good resource.

I have now corrected the link. It had http twice!

If you’re studying math or science, you are probably pretty familiar with Wolfram Alpha as a tool for figuring out complicated equations. That makes it a pretty good tool for cheating, but not necessarily for learning. Today, the Wolfram Alpha team is launching a new service for learners, the Wolfram Problem Generator, that turns the “computational knowledge engine” on its head.

 

The Problem Generator – which is available to all Wolfram Alpha Pro subscribers now – creates random practice questions for students, and Wolfram Alpha then helps them find the answers step-by-step.

Here's a link to the tool: http://www.wolframalpha.com/problem-generator/

Hi everyone,

 

You should try the website "khanacademy". I used it for understanding differential equations second order. And, In my view it's good website.

There's some powerful awesome here:

 

http://world.mathigon.org/

 

At school, mathematics is mostly about arithmetic and algebra: adding fractions, solving equations and calculating percentages. These topics are important to understand the formal language that underlies mathematics, but they can appear very dry and boring, with few applications in real life.

 

But mathematics is so much more, and everybody should understand concepts like prime numbers, graph theory or differential equations. They are of fundamental importance in technology and for understanding of the universe we live in, and they are incredible exciting and beautiful. Mathematics is an essential part of our culture, just like Mozart and Shakespeare.

 

Mathigon is a collection of educational resources for children, the general public and teachers. These range from interactive eBooks to slideshows, videos, animations and lesson plans. With colourful design and using many new technologies, Mathigon shows how exciting and entertaining mathematics can be.

I feel most schools really focus more on providing English and other fields while failing to provide other fields in mathematics. Teachers do sometimes do extras when teaching certain topics, but never get deeply into the subjects. Thanks for providing the link.

Every other section has one... this one should too (If it has I can't find it sorry).

 

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/

11) Lots of interesting stuff, the mysteries of the Fibonacci Numbers etc.

 

12) http://integrals.wolfram.com/

12) Very useful too, online integral solver!

 

13) http://tones.wolfram.com/

13) Maths in music, what next?

 

If you have more to add pease share them :)

 

Cheers,

 

Ryan Jones

Thank you so much Ryan for that list. I just discovered it here, and it is truly amazing. You rock!
