Mr. B's "Favorites"

Looking for an "Alternative Algebra Perspective?" 

These are the sites that I have "bookmarked" on my computer.  When I am looking for new ideas for class, I found these resources useful.  Most have directories and organized links to help find information about specific topics.  A good "Web sleuth" should be able to find the answer to ANY math or algebra question somewhere within these pages.  Collectively, resource directories like this represent the largest collections of mathematical information in the world -- but don't take my work for it, check some of these sites out for yourself!

442 Manually Selected Algebra Resources This listing, because of the sheer volume of resources, may not as "user-friendly" as some, but it does have it all.
