The College Math Center is an important resource for students in math and other related curriculum.

  • Offers individual mathematics assistance to all Thomas Nelson students
  • Makes available instructional materials to help students review and improve mathematical skills

Selected Internet Resources for Mathematics Help:

On-line resources are listed for distance learners and for the convenience of all Thomas Nelson students.

  • Algebra.com
    Algebra homework help. This web site has a homework help forum where you can post a questions and answers.
  • American Mathematical Society Publications
    Devoted to publishing research mathematics of high quality and significance in all areas of pure and applied mathematics. Each journal is unique in its offering of articles, book reviews, and reports. And each is managed by editors who are prominent in their fields. (American Mathematical Society)
  • Fear of Physics
    Fear not! Physics. Explained. Finally.
  • Insultingly Stupid Movie Physics
    “Technonerds go to movies strictly for entertainment, and of course, the most entertaining part comes after the movie when they can dissect, criticize, and argue the merits of every detail. However, when supposedly serious scenes totally disregard the laws of physics in blatantly obvious ways it’s enough to make us retch. The motion picture industry has failed to police itself against the evils of bad physics. This page is provided as a public service in hopes of improving this deplorable matter. The minds of our children and their ability to master vectors are (shudder) at stake.”
  • Geometry Center
    The Geometry Center supports math research, mathematical visualization and math education through the college level with a wide range of materials. From the University of Minnesota.
  • Khan Academy
    With over 3,200 videos on everything from arithmetic to physics, finance, and history and hundreds of skills to practice, we’re on a mission to help you learn what you want, when you want, at your own pace.
  • Math Forum
    An online community of teachers, students, researchers, parents, educators, and citizens at all levels who have an interest in math and math education. From Drexel University.
  • Nick’s Mathematical Puzzles
    The puzzles “range over geometry, probability, number theory, algebra, calculus, and logic. All require a certain ingenuity, but usually only pre-college math… Explaining how an answer is arrived at is more important than the answer itself. To this end, hints, answers, and fully worked solutions are provided, as well as links to relevant mathematical topics.”
  • Online Graphing Calculator Help
    Excellent source for getting started with and TI Graphing calculator.
  • Shodor Interactive
    Over 100 Java-based interactive math lessons
  • WebMath
    This web site has a limited problem solver that does pre-algebra to calculus.
