Alex's Favorite Math Resources

There are lots of miscellaneous math resources below. Many are oriented towards teachers, but students will hopefully find a lot of them interesting, challenging, and mind-opening. These won't necessarily work to replace what is done in the classroom, but hopefully might get you aware of the wonder and beauty of math to provide a bit of reason/motivation behind what you’re doing in the classroom. My kids like watching some of these videos. It gets them intrigued about mathematics, and how math is not just calculation/following rules. There are plenty of traditional resources like khanacademy, aleks, catchup math, etc, that I could link as well, but those sorts of materials are readily available at school, so I would suggest exploring some of the below resources if you’re looking for something ‘more’.
