- 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

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.”
