Eric Weisstein’s World of Science is packed with good stuff – and improving daily. It is funded by Stephen Wolfram, one of the whizziest computer whizkids around.
Like his World of Science, Eric Weisstein’s MathWorld is chock full of interesting mathematics and material for teachers to use to promote interest in the subject.
(It appears that has been a legal action in the USA between the author of this site, Eric Weisstein, and a publishing company. The result of the action has been the temporary or permanent transfer – one cannot be sure yet which - of the “mathworld” site to something called “planetmaths” or “planetmath”. Search the web to ascertain this for yourself. Add the result to your “favourites”.)
