 I thought we needed a post for math sites if there is already one we can combine them.

Vedic Mathematics

Vedic Mathematics is the name given to the ancient system of Indian Mathematics which was rediscovered from the Vedas between 1911 and 1918 by Sri Bharati Krsna Tirthaji (1884-1960). According to his research, all of mathematics is based on sixteen Sutras, or word-formulae.

Want to make math fun? If you're willing to do a bit of prep work at the audio-visual department of your local library or on Netflix (or whatever movie provider you use), you and your kids will be rewarded with some really fun math explorations.

 This site is a treasure trove of information on one of the greatest mathematicians of all time - Archimedes. The site was created by Chris Rorres, a Professor Emeritus of Mathematics at Drexel University in Pennsylvania. It contains free information about the life and times of Archimedes, as well as examples of his work and inventions such as the compound pulley system, the planetarium, the water screw, etc.

This is fascinating! Bradford Hansen-Smith has been folding circles and teaching people of all ages how to do it for twenty years. He states, "Mathematics is based on the geometry of drawing pictures of the circle and using parts of the circle for constructing information from these static images. The square and all other polygons are only a part of the circle, all limited to a specific number of sides. The circle has no sides, it does not have limits."
