Online Math Center
The mission of Whatcom Community College's Online Math Center is to provide free access to a wide range of resources related to mathematics, its application, technology, and mathematics education.
Design Tied to Mission
To this end, the Online Math Center has been designed around two main themes, Teaching and Learning Math, as well as the ancillary themes of Math Resources, Calculators, and Math Events.
Under Learning Math, there is an on "growing" set of topics. There are links to tutorial sites on the Web as well as on campus. Users have access to Web help pages and may find information about Math Placement and Math Classes, scholarships and other forms of financial aid.
Here you will find applications to math from A to Z. Use LiveMath resources to visualize vectors, imaginary roots, three dimensional surfaces. The Math Calendar can locate the birthdays of mathematicians for any day of the year as well as provide information about many different calendars. Teaching Resources from prepared lesson plans to graph paper, and Real Data that can be used for mathematical modeling are also found under Teaching Math. To locate a WCC Math faculty member or find a text publisher, use the links provided under this section.
Found under Math Resources are Math Software Reviews, ERIC Resources, as well as The Online Math Center Library with links to math oriented web libraries, references, and journals.
To locate professional mathematics organizations online, visit our Organizations page. To visit the homepage or math department homepage of many community colleges and four year universities try our Colleges page.
Information about the specifications and operation of Casio, Texas Instrument, and Hewlett Packard graphing calculators and data gathering devices may be found on the Calculator page. There are links to tutorials and to sites from which programs may be downloaded to specific models of graphing calculators.
For mathematical puzzles and contests, current research, and professional meetings, visit the Math Events page.
The creation of the Online Math Center was funded through the U. S. Department of Education Title III Grant PO31A980143.
