Below you will find information about books, organizations, and other sites devoted to undergraduate mathematics. Each entry contains a brief description and link for further information. All descriptions here are taken from references to the resources (websites, book jackets, reviews).
Many of the resources listed here are from the Mathematical Association of America, a professional organization dedicated to collegiate mathematics. Another key postsecondary organization is the American Mathematical Association of Two-Year Colleges.
For questions about existing resources, or to make suggestions for resources to be added, please contact TJ Murphy.
AMTE: Association of Mathematics Teacher Educators website
AMTE is the largest professional organization devoted to the improvement of mathematics teacher education—it includes over 1000 members devoted to the preservice education and professional development of K-12 teachers of mathematics.
KCTM: Kentucky Council of Teachers of Mathematics website
KCTM has a membership of approximately 1,000 members, who serve Kentucky students in kindergarten through college. We are affiliated with the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics and have several organizations who are affiliated with us. The Kentucky Council of Teachers of Mathematics believes all students have the capacity to become mathematically competent and confident when provided a rigorous and challenging mathematical program supported by high expectations. Teachers who attend our conferences come away invigorated and ready to take ideas back to their classrooms.
NCTM: National Council of Teachers of Mathematics website
NCTM is a public voice of mathematics education supporting teachers to ensure equitable mathematics learning of the highest quality for all students through vision, leadership, professional development and research.
SIGMAA MCST: Special Interest Group of the Mathematical Association of America on Circles for Students and Teachers website
The goal of this SIGMAA is to give math circles – both student math circles and math teacher circles – greater visibility and a permanent presence in the mathematical and educational landscape. This SIGMAA will support MAA members who share an interest in developing, supporting and running math circles and will facilitate vertical integration of elementary, middle and high school students, their teachers, undergraduate and graduate students, and faculty up through high-level research mathematicians.
Teacher Preparation Committee of the American Mathematical Association of Two-Year Colleges website
The main focus of the Teacher Preparation Committee is to help insure better preparation of teachers of mathematics at all levels. Subtopics or potential subgroups for this committee include: elementary teacher preparation, secondary teacher preparation, and mathematics curriculum for teachers.

Boston College Mathematics Case Studies Project (BCCase) website
This website is devoted to the materials Boston College have developed for math graduate students who are serving as TAs or instructors. It includes information for faculty who are considering using these materials with their students. The materials we have created have been published jointly by the AMS and the MAA in the CMBS series Issues in Mathematics Education. Though the project has been completed, a community of case study users is available to provide information to you on using the BC Case materials.

The Math Forum website
The Math Forum is a leading center for mathematics and mathematics education on the Internet. Operating under Drexel's School of Education, our mission is to provide resources, materials, activities, person-to-person interactions, and educational products and services that enrich and support teaching and learning in an increasingly technological world. Our online community includes teachers, students, researchers, parents, educators, and citizens at all levels who have an interest in math and math education.

MathQUEST/MathVote: Resources for Clickers and Classroom Voting in Collegiate Mathematics website
Voting in Collegiate Mathematics. This page contains resources for classroom voting in mathematics, also known as ConcepTests for Peer Instruction or "Clicker Questions".
WeBWorK is an open source Perl-based system for delivering individualized homework problems over the web. By providing students with immediate feedback as to the correctness of their answers, students are encouraged to make multiple attempts until they succeed. By individualizing problems, cheating is discouraged. By providing instructors with real-time statistics, lesson plans can be customized to better serve students.
IMathAS is an Internet Mathematics Assessment System. In essence, it is a very light Course Management System (CMS).
National Numeracy Network (NNN) website
The National Numeracy Network offers its members a network of individuals, institutions and corporations united by the common goal of quantitative literacy for all citizens. The website includes a list of quantitative literacy projects.
SIGMAA QL: Special Interest Group of the Mathematical Association of America on Quantitative Literacy website
SIGMAA QL aims to provide a structure within the mathematics community to identify the prerequisite mathematical skills for quantitative literacy and find innovative ways of developing and implementing QL curricula. We also intend to assist colleagues in other disciplines to infuse appropriate QL experiences into their courses and hope to stimulate the general national dialogue concerning QL.
