Art of Problem Solving www.artofproblemsolving.com
A site developed to help students learn how to solve the puzzling problems --
The creators of AoP were this student once. They were the kids who wanted to win the trophies. They worked hard and became the kids who won the trophies. The trophies are in attics now. The problem-solving skills, the love of mathematics, and the friendships forged with peers with similar interests remain. They've applied the skills we've developed through mathematics to a variety of fields in college, then in the professional world.
"Now we've returned to our starting point - the student in a room, chewing on a pencil, staring at a question, giving up, reading the answer, and thinking. . . How would I have thought of that?
"This time you are the student. We are building this site for you, to provide a resource you can turn to.
"You're stuck on a problem, so you write friends on our Forum. You hang out in our Math Jams. You take an online class. You don't give up. You learn how to think of the solution. You solve the problem. Then you think..........Next problem.
Awesome Math www.awesomemath.org
AwesomeMath consists of three major intiatives.
- The AwesomeMath Summer Program is a three-week camp designed to hone high school students' mathematical problem-solving skills up to the Olympiad level.
- The AwesomeMath Year-round program is an effort to continue students' enrichment during the school year through a series of correspondence lectures and problem sets.
- Mathematical Reflections is an online journal that presents students with quality mathematical writing and gives them the opportunity to formally publish their own exceptional work.
Bay Area Mathematical Olympiad (BAMO) bamo.org
The Bay Area Mathematical Olympiad (BAMO) consists of three annual competitions:
Two exams, each taken by about 200 students, with 4 or 5 proof-type math problems to be solved in 4 hours. One exam is for students in 8th grade and under, and the other for students in 12th grade and under. They are held on the last Tuesday of every February, at schools and several open sites around the Bay Area. There is also an exam offered for teachers, giving an opportunity to show how to use deeper mathematical knowledge to be more successful in the classroom. Typically held on the Sunday immediately preceding the student exam, teachers come together for a social event as well as an exam.
Calculus the Musical www.calculusthemusical.com
Matheatre is an educational performance duo.-- touring our original production of "Calculus: The
Musical!," a comic "review" of the concepts and history of Calculus. Created by a licensed math teacher and a professional theatre artist, Matheatre strives to put the "edge" back in "education!" For services contact

or fan of mathematics!
Circus of Patterns www.circusofpatterns.com
This site is a product of a mathematicians research in mathematics number patterns for 25 years. He has developed a series of mathematical charts for teachers and those students who do not like math, so they become involve in mathematics and having "FUN". The series of math charts are in, whole number, fraction, and decimals. Students are draw to the board searching for numerical and geometric patterns, as they are having "FUN" to doing the math.
An online magazine of the Mathematical Association of America which provides a wealth of resources to help teach mathematics using its history.
Cut the Knot www.cut-the-knot.org
The site, among others, is the winner of the MERLOT Classics 2004 award and a 2003 selection of the Scientific American. It's a big site with more than 500 Java illustrations. Topics covered are drawn from Arithmetic, Algebra, Geometry, Probability, Calculus, Social Sciences, Logic and more.
The Mary P. Dolciani Halloran Foundation has provided funding for the Mathematical Association of America (MAA) to award grants for projects designed to develop mathematical enrichment programs for talented students in middle school or high school. The goal of the program is to interest students who are ready for more challenge in the study of mathematics and encourage them to further their mathematical studies.
Grants will be up to $6000 and will be made to the college or university of the project director for a one-year project. An institution is expected to supply in-kind support as an indication of commitment to the project; these grants will not support any institutional indirect costs or provide fringe benefits. Any matching funds available should be described in the proposal and included in the budget. To provide maximum flexibility, unexpended funds may be carried forward. Some grants may be renewed up to a maximum of three years. Projects that have received previous funding must include a report on outcomes of the project.
Please visit www.maa.org/dolciani for more information.
Global Institute of Mathematics www.globalmath.org
GIOM offers highly interactive courses from Algebra through Calculus in real time. Students can interact with the instructor as lessons are taking place. Lessons are also archived for future viewing. Students have unlimited email access to the instructor outside of lesson time.
IDEA Math www.ideamath.org
IDEA MATH brings together students who take pleasure in tackling difficult math problems. We believe that mathematics is a field that demands not only flexibility with numbers, symbols, and geometric objects, but also the patience to be exposed to something which is completely new and different, eventually integrating it into an ever-widening but coherent body of knowledge; in our classes, students will expand their knowledge and develop techniques towards approaching and effectively applying their skills to solve difficult problems, alongside the opportunity to form friendships with students who, like themselves, enjoy math.
IDEAMath offers courses for able students of all skill levels, including a wide variety of problem solving courses and summer math camps which draw from topics found on contests such as the AMC 8/10/12, AIME and USA Math Olympiad. Offerings including:
- Weekend classes at Lexington High School during the school year
- AMC123 in the Bay Area, California during winter break
- Summer Programs on both coasts

USA Mathematical Talent Search (USAMTS) usamts.org
The USA Mathematical Talent Search (USAMTS) is a free mathematics competition open to all United States middle and high school students. Different from most mathematics competitions, the USAMTS allows students a full month to work out their solutions. Carefully written justifications are required for each problem. The problems range in difficulty from being within the reach of most high school students to challenging the best students in the nation. Students may use any materials - books, calculators, computers - but all the work must be their own. The USAMTS is run on the honor system - it is an individual competition, whose competitive role is very secondary.
Valentin Vornicu www.mathlinks.ro
A former Romanian IMO Team Member, currently an undergraduate student in Mathematics at University of Bucharest. He thought that the site he had forged would fit in quite nicely.
The site's address would be www.mathlinks.ro and it has a math forum, with a lot of users, most of them being former, current or future IMO contestants, download problems section and also a weekly contest - similar with USAMO in difficulty. It is not as big as the mathforum (yet :-) ).
