# Anchorage Math Solutions Group

WELCOME TO THE CONSTRUCTION SITE

Right now this page contains a few links to some useful Math sites on the
Web. Beginning in November we'll include stuff about AMSG's current local
activities.

## Math Tools

### Real Numbers

Check out the Inverse
Symbolic Calculator
from Simon Fraser University in British Columbia. If you have a number
which looks familiar, but you can't remember where it came from, the ISC
will try to give you its mathematical pedigree! (It's not a reverse phone
book)

### Sequences of Integers

This one can be done just using E-mail! It's from a fairly mad mathematician
at Bell Labs named Neil Sloane. Jump over to
Sloane's Instructions to start. Basically, if you know the first few
positive integers in a sequence, Sloane's machine can tell you if they're
famous!

### Pretty Knots

The AMSG is a "fractal-free" zone. For those who like pretty
and mathematically interesting pictures we highly recommend ---
the KnotPlot. With a little practice and a very good connection you
can even make your own!

### Nice Gateway-Link

Of course the Web is the Web, so you'll want to do your own Math Surfing
- here's a good quality starting place which seems to be lurking at Florida
State - OTHER MATH
SITES.

### Combinatorics (I)

Try this link (Ooh, that's
bad HTML!) if you want to experiment with some enumerative and graphical
combinatorial objects. Frank Ruskey's ratings of his own links are about
right!

### Geometry at Swarthmore

This is called
the Geometry Forum. It's been around a while so it's accumulated some
(gasp!) not-so-mathematical content, but it might wind up your favorite!

### The Geometry Center at Minneapolis

This one, at the
Geometry Center at the University of Minnesota, is a little more hard-core,
but still can be fun.
