I am not offering a math course this semester, but this page contains a number of resources, homework sheets and project ideas that I have written and used in the past. A few may even have been successful enough to have student work included in the Projects page.

Here is a virtual TI83 Graphing calculator - it is an EXACT copy of a real one, just on your desktop. Use it to demo on your projector!

Check out these online examples that I made to show factoring. If you want to make one too, I recommend the Wacom Bamboo graphics tablet and the Debut screen capture program.

Anne and I wrote this algebra book. Anne also wrote a chapter on circles for a geometry book. Both are open source, and copyright free.

Brittany and Elise from the class of 2008 made this instructional video. This is a neat way to get your students to explain math for others!

Interesting challenge problems from: 2006,
