### Online Math Applications

1998
We designed our web page to meet three educational objectives: To apply math to real-life situations; To make math interesting and stimulating; To share interactive math experiences over the Internet. We show that math is part of our daily life by applying it to driving a car, listening to music, using a computer and saving and investing for college funds. The mathematical concepts in each of our topics are defined with simple equations at elementary and junior high math levels. When students realize that they can use simple math to understand and solve problems relevant to their lives, they will discover that math is stimulating. We take away fear of learning math by using simple equations for complicated real-life application. We ask users to submit a quiz to share in the hope of stimulating their imagination in the real world. As more users submit their quizzes, we will build up a database of interesting real-world math applications

### Focal Point

2008
All beams of wave traveling parallel to the axis of the parabola after reflecting of he surface of the antenna will go to the same location within the antenna. This point is called the focal point of the parabola. That's where they place a receiver. We'll determine the position of the focal point given equation of the parabola.

### The Fibonacci Series

2006
A study of how the Fibonacci series is found in nature, art and architecture.

### The Secret of the Right Triangle

2004
Our website teaches viewers the Pythagorean Theorem, Pythagoras, and its proofs in an easy-to-understand format.

### Everyday Math

2003
Here you will find shortcuts for basic math equations. We chose this subject because we wanted to help younger students with the painstaking task that is math. We also wanted people to appreciate math. Math is used more in your everyday life than you might think (getting to school on time, budgeting spending money, calculating change, etc.). We want to make people aware of everyday math.

### Fibonnaci's Sequence

2003
This site is dedicated to informing you of Leonardo Pisano, better known as Fibonacci, and his mathematical findings.

### Millennium Mathematics

2003
In this project, our team has been instructed to create a website that enables other people or students to read, think, and understand the principles of integers. On this website, you will find links to pages that support information on multiplying, dividing, adding, and subtracting integers, in whole numbers and in fractions.

### Math Nerds.com

2001
Our site is about math tricks. We will teach you to multiply much quicker than you would have before. You multiply 11, 101, 25, 50 and you learn the coolest FOIL.

### Integers

2000
This site is about integers.

### Math Club

2000
The site is aimed at students ages 12-15 to teach the various topics in maqth covered by guiding students through the lessons, giving hints or suggestions along the way. The site can also be used by math teachers to supplement lessons or add a new twist to the regular teaching style. We hope that it will benefit students from all over the world who need extra help in math or who enjoy mathematical puzzles.

### Math Help Page

2000
Our site provides help specifically in the algebra area. Users will get help with triangles, variables, basics on rectangular graphing, and how to solve equations.

### Algebra 1 Computer Tutor

1999
The purpose for this site is to provide students with a guide through the topic of quadratics in Algebra 1. This site discusses and illuminates the main concepts in an engaging and playful manner.

### Graphing from a 5th Grader's Point of View

1999
Our web site is about graphs. It is called Graphing from a 5th Grader's Point of View. We put in interactive games to make the web site interesting. We also included a quiz and survey because we feel that it will help people who visit our web site understand graphs better. Most people think graphs would not help them in their life, but we thought differently. We realized that people use graphs everyday. In jobs, some people use them to see how much money they are making. We decided to make this web site to show how important graphs really are.

### Math Mania

1999
Math Mania has two important applications. One application is the use of math lessons to teach formulas and other methods of solving various math problems. The other application is to predict the outcome of certain problems based on given data with the Math Mania Math Solver. Math Mania is full of useful information to help one learn the language of mathematics. This site incorporates the principles of math and presents them using a collection of math lessons. These math lessons are assisted by a mailing list, a message board, and chat. These tools provide an interactive line of communication between Math Mania and the online users. Math Mania also includes an online search and sitemap to allow users to quickly navigate the site and find desired information. With Math Mania, we hope users will develop a greater appreciation for math and a greater knowledge of math and its applications.

### So Why Should I Care?

1999
The idea behind our entry was to explore some areas of math commonly only skimmed over in high school math and science. The mathematical implications of music are rarely, if ever, covered, and the significance of some constants is often not fully realized, so in developing this site we looked to fill these voids. It also attempts to explain a variety of conic sections, as well as the more mathematical parts of physics.

### The Fibonnaci Series

1999
"The Fibonacci Series: The Series, The Applications, The Web Page" is an educational webpage dedicated to the exploration of and sharing of knowledge about the Fibonacci Series, a sequence of numbers constructed first by Leonardo Fibonacci in 1202. Topics covered include formulae for finding terms of the series, Golden mathematics, practical applications of the series, the appearance of the series in nature and art, and biographies of Fibonacci and his contemporaries. There is also a forum provided for the discussion of the series and sharing of knowledge thereof. The site uses a lesson-by-lesson format as well as interactive Flash animations to teach about this fascinating series and to foster in its readers a sense of wonder about mathematics.

### WEB MATH: An Interactive Tutorial for Mi

1999
This web page will teach middle school students Pre-Algebra and Algebra I concepts using step by step tutorials and interactive pages. The tutorial pages will teach the formulas and concepts involved in Pre-Algebra and Algebra. Using VB Script and Java Script, the interactive pages will generate problems that will test what the student has learned, check answers for correctness, and provide feedback.

### Math Tour

1998
Welcome to the Math Tour, an interesting and entertaining site. This is a place to discover original math problems, humorous proofs of theorems, and interesting facts about math and mathematicians. Designed for all ages, both for beginners and those with developed math skills, there is something here for everyone.

### The Algebra Experience

1998
We want kinds in eighth and ninth grade to get help on Algebra. This will help them in school and in future years. This page is also great for mathematically advanced students. They can learn some Algebra and impress their teacher! Another objective is to have people discuss questions and get involved. Our main purpose is for students to learn!

### Ye Olde ThinkQuest

1998
This site explains the logic system of Boolean algebra. The three main logic gates AND, OR, and NOT are presented and explained. The site argues that binary logic isn't enough. Enter the "trinary" logic system that the authors have created themselves, and explore possible uses for the new trinary logic. Is their argument for a trinary system a good one? You decide.

### Mathematics with A.L.I.C.E (Active Learner's Internet-based Creative Educator)
