- Cool Math: Geometry Information and Art - Get some good geometry and trigonometry information and see all the very cool art that can be made with math and geometry.
- Conjectures in Geometry: An educational web site created for high school geometry students. Their list of 20 conjectures in Geometry is supported by demonstrations using the Geometers Sketchpad.
- Davitily Math Problem Generator - add a title then select Create Document, select add problems to select from four areas (Basic math, Algebra, Geometry, or SAT math), select from more specific menus, add the number of problems you want then select the gray Back to button to see a printable document. [online test not available in this free version].
- The Fractal Microscope - Zoom in on the visually fascinating world of Mandelbrot and Julia sets, explore the algorithms used to create them, and learn about the mathematics behind the cool graphics. This is a Java version of the Fractal Microscope. You can also find a Java version of The Snowflake Fractal Generator -- Create your own fractals with this tool that allows you to specify a "drawing rule" that the computer uses to make curves like the famous Koch Snowflake. The same site offers the Sierpinski Gasket -- A tool for modeling the "Chaos Game', a simple, apparently random process with a not-so-random result. Allows you to change the rules and make your own fractals.
