The JOMA Global Positioning System and Imagery Collection is a growing library of data, how-tos, and materials for learning mathematics, science, and engineering using data collected with GPS units and both digital still and movie cameras.

In this Editor's note, I discuss how to use HTML, CSS style sheets, and JavaScript to produce mathematical documents that are well-structured, conform to best practices, and look good. I also provide a number of sample documents and links to resources.

In this article we introduce the free educational mathematics software GeoGebra. This open source tool extends concepts of dynamic geometry to the fields of algebra and calculus.

An article describing the author's first experience with teaching an online course, with suggestions for those who find themselves in similar circumstances
This is a Developer's Area article that describes how to use a Java applet called LiveGraphics3D to speed up the process of creating interactive graphics by removing the need to create a graphics engine in Java, Flash, or other programming languages.

This Editor's Note discusses best practices for writing web-based expository mathematics.

This article unifies four numerical procedures for solving nonlinear equations: the regula falsi, Newton--Raphson, secant, and Steffensen methods.
This article argues for pedagogical reasons that the dot and cross products should be defined by their geometric properties, from which algebraic representations can be derived, rather than the other way around.
This article uses interactive mathlets to explore various methods of determining the winner of a three party election. Methods of constructing paradoxical examples are also given.
This article describes ZMap, an applet that helps students visualize the graphs of complex-valued functions.
