Mr. Bogomolny,

The March 1997 issue of NCTM News Bulletin, our monthly news letter for mathematics educators, listed your Interactive Mathematics Miscellany and Puzzles site in its Internet Briefs section, a sort of "classified ads" for Internet sites. We do this regularly with any new Internet sites we find that may interest mathematics teachers, at no cost to the sites themselves.

We would like to send you a complimentary copy of that issue, as we do with anyone the News Bulletin features. Unfortunately, the best we could find on the site itself was this e-mail address for you. Could you give us a normal-mail address? Sending it to me by e-mail will be fine: I'll forward it to those who need it.

Thanks in advance,

Hi alexb

The CTK website is the richest mathematical resource I have ever used, web-based or otherwise. I want to congratulate you, and thank you for the time and effort you have put into this site.

This praise doesn't come lightly. I am a high school maths teacher who is a bit of a maths internet junky - I belong to a number of maths education mailing lists, read mathematical newsgroups and visit every mathematical website I find out about (and even maintain a few mathematical websites myself - see sig file). I have visited a very large number of mathematical websites over the past few years, so my opinion is founded on a reasonably large knowledge base.

I'm curious, how do you find the time to develop such a wonderful site?

Congratulations! A link to your website has been added to Hop To It: Your remote control to the Internet at:

Your site was chosen for it's rich, family friendly content, the ease of navigation throughout, and it's great format.

Hop To It was designed to be a starting point for your Internet journeys. Directories like Yahoo or AltaVista, that aspire to catalog the entire Internet, have grown cumbersome. You can click forever and still not find what you want. You can search by keywords, but you get a thousand suggestions. The one you want might be number 853. Hop To It offers a variety of the very best sites listed by catagory, or searched by keyword. Three clicks and you're there. If you still don't find what you are looking for, a half-dozen search engines are listed on the menu bar and you can search the entire web.

Again, congratulations. Together we can connect more people to the best websites!

Congratulations! Your page: has been selected to receive a Links2Go Key Resource award in the Java Applets topic!

The Links2Go Key Resource award is both exclusive and objective. Fewer than one page in one thousand will ever be selected for inclusion. Further, unlike most awards that rely on the subjective opinion of "experts," many of whom have only looked at tens or hundreds of thousands of pages in bestowing their awards, the Links2Go Key Resource award is completely objective and is based on an analysis of millions of web pages. During the course of our analysis, we identify which links are most representative of each of the thousands of topics in Links2Go, based on how actual page authors, like yourself, index and organize links on their pages. In fact, the Key Resource award is so exclusive, even we don't qualify for it (yet ;)!
