ME:TAL (Mathematics for Economics: Enhancing Teaching and Learning)
Math gets real: math for economics.
Grade Level: 9-12

This site developed by instructors at Nottingham Trent University, Brunel and the University of Portsmouth in the U.K. offers teachers and students a selection of free learning resources designed to engage students more fully in mathematics for economics.
The clean layout allows visitors to the site to easily find information and resources. Resources are grouped into four categories that are listed on the main page. Real Player is needed.

ME:TAL offers teachers and students many free resources for learning about mathematics for economics. The meat of the site is the resource section that is divided into four categories: video streaming and downloads, teaching and learning guides, question bank, and case studies. There are five video units covering ten units of study that use streaming video and animation to relate mathematical concepts to the field of economics. The question bank contains files for algebra, economics, integration, matrices, numbers, coordinate geometry and differentiation that can be used in diagnostic testing, tutorials, problem sheets, and assessment. The ten teaching and learning guides provide an extensive bank of teaching activities covering all aspects of mathematics for economics. And the case studies put mathematical problems into a real world context.
