If a person is interested in fun facts about math, and doesn’t want to hunt all over the Web for them, go to Mudd Math Fun Facts, located at http://www.math.hmc.edu/funfacts/. Created by Francis Edward Su of the Harvey Mudd College Math Department as a “warm-up” activity for calculus courses, these are tidbits from all areas of math. The site is definitely fun, entertaining, and addictive. If that doesn’t satisfy your mathematical questions, try “Mathematics Lessons that Are Fun,” by Cynthia Lanius, at http://math.rice.edu/~lanius/Lessons/hosted by Rice University. Here Lanius offers some simpler renditions of how to understand mathematics—mainly for young students—such as “Visualizing an Infinite Series” and “Fractals,” with links to other helpful websites.
