Mathematics for Everyone

Name of a Number : Ever get tonguetied trying to read the English name of a multimultidigit number like 372,469,737,190,393,701 (the number of inches in a lightyear? Enter the digits, and out comes the name, in your choice of American (million, billion, trillion, quadrillion) or European (million, milliard, billion, billiard) units.
Internet Learning Network : Offers quizzes based on questions from the Third International Mathematics and Science Study. It's sponsored by the Council on Competitiveness, in response to the poor showing of American high school seniors in general science literacy on the widely cited test.
Math on the Move : The new Journal of Online Mathematics and Its Applications (JOMA) serves up an enticing array of Webbased teaching tools for all levels of college math.
MathGate: A huge collection of annotated links delivers you to scores of math sites on topics ranging from matrix algebra to probability theory to topology. Links to journals, societies, and departments predominate, but the catalog includes several preprint archives, Web texts, historical and educational sites.
World of Mathematics: Treats everything mathematical, from the abc conjecture to Zorn's lemma, with over 10,000 entries and links to references, animated graphics and Java applets. Check out the billiard ball bouncing around inside a tetrahedron.
The Chaos Hypertextbook : Curious readers can find an orderly path through chaos theory here. It covers the basics: onedimensional iterated maps, strange attractors, fractals, and Lyapunov exponents  mathematical quantities that measure how chaotic or wellbehaved a system may be.

Statistics for Various Disciplines

VassarStats: Statistical Computation : Concepts & Applications of Inferential Statistics. Utilities: Note Pad, Pocket Calculator, Randomizer, Data Storage Window, Site Search
Engineering Statistics Handbook : Beef up your stats IQ with this primer from the N.I.S.T. and the microchip consortium SEMATECH. Eight chapters cover topics such as measurement, selecting statistical models, and data analysis, using samples and indepth case studies that emphasize engineering problems.
Rice Virtual Lab in Statistics : If you're looking for a clear, basic stats howto, this site includes an online statistics textbook, onsite tools for crunching your own data, and plenty of links to more stats software. It's intended for novices who don't know a ttest from a P value, and for anyone who wants a quick refresher.
Probability Web : Chance, probability, and statistics are the bulwarks of disciplines from nuclear physics to evolutionary theory.

Statistics for Biology, Genetics, Etc.

Numeracy, Statistics and Computers : Survival Guide to Maths and Computers for Biologists
Computational Paleontology :
This page is devoted to the use of mathematical models, simulation, computer graphics and computers in general in paleontology:
Topics in Statistical Genetics : The notes available here are draft chapters of a book by Simon Tavare´ and Peter Donnelly entitled Ancestral Processes in Population Genetics.


Famous Mathematicians

For most of his days, Sir Isaac Newton saw red. And that's not just a reference to his irascible nature. Newton furnished nearly his entire home in crimson. You will learn much more about the Father of the Calculus at this virtual museum.
Gottfried Wilhelm von Leibniz Resources
G. W. von Leibniz [ 16461716 ] Invented the differential and integral calculus independently of Sir Isaac Newton.
Euclid – Father of Geometry
Euclid's Elements is the classic treatise in geometry used as a textbook for more than 1,000 years in western Europe. An Arabic version of the book appeared at the end of the eighth century, and the first printed version was produced in 1482. It went through more than 2,000 editions consisting of 465 propositions divided into 13 chapters.
