Number Patterns Fun With Curves & Topology
Online math resources for grades 5-8.

This math metasite, created by educational consultant and textbook author Jill Britton, is an index of 18 subtopics relating to number patterns.
With not a lot of glitz and glamour, the site has a simple layout with few graphics.
Links are grouped into 18 subtopics that are listed in index format on the main page. Links lead to outside sources so users will need to use the Back button on their browsers to return to the index.
Math teachers will appreciate the work put into this excellent resource for supplementing the math curriculum. The author has scoured the Internet to find the best sites available for teaching such topics as prime numbers, the golden ratio, Pascal's triangle, mazes and maps, moir patterns and more. The Web resources listed under each topic are annotated and lead to tutorials, applets, and fun activities for students and lesson plans for teachers.
