Alphabet Lists: These lists were designed for teachers who are working with children on learning the alphabet, and want to have lists of words in a variety of categories, sorted by letter. You may also filter results by category, and have words sorted by initial letter within that category.

Product Reviews: The site administrators report on interesting/useful educational resources, including games, reference materials, books, and more.

Printables: The printables section of this site provides a large selection of printable worksheets, including math worksheets across the grade spectrum, mazes, and games built from vocabulary word lists.

The Vortex: If you have ever heard of "Vortex Based Math" and wondered what that was, you can find out here. You can also learn about a video that purports to describe the motion of the planets around the sun.

Population Explosion: In response to a question on his blog, Professor Puzzler created a population simulator; enter parameters such as beginning population, reproduction rates, etc. and see how your population expands.

Gravity Train: This is a simulator based on the possibility of building a train tunnel that travels through the earth instead of over the surface. We don't currently have the technology to do this, but it sure is fun to imagine!

Statistics Calculators: These calculators were designed specifically for high school students who have not yet studied statistics, and yet still need to be able to perform functions like finding outliers in a science experiment.

Christmas Tree Light Calculator: In a way, this is a bit of a joke, because we don't really expect people are going to use this page to figure out how many feet of Christmas lights to buy. It was really designed as a mathematical demonstration, to show how approximations can be made more and more accurate by subdividing into smaller and smaller pieces - a concept that eventually leads us to Calculus.
