The resource list from “Math Mania: Finding the Best Resources/Links/Tools” is ready; thank you to everyone who contributed! Leslie Graves from Ireland, @LesLinks, deserves a special nod, as she provided us all with enough math bookmarks to keep our gifted mathematicians satiated for years! Should you have additional math resources, feel free to send me a tweet, a DM to @DeborahMersino and/or an email at deborah (at sign) ingeniosus (dot) net. Pardon the laborious way of writing my email. I’m working to combat the bots!

If you missed our “Math Mania” #gtchat on July 2, 2010 and would like to read the transcript in full, you’ll find it here {scroll to 10:10 start/links}.

Thankfully, many of the sites listed below are free resources. However, if you’re an educator, parent or advocate planning to purchase one or more of the books referenced below, please consider ordering through Shop Hoagies. As many of you know, Hoagies’ continues to be a light for so many in the gifted world. A portion of your purchase dollars will go toward supporting this potent, resource-laden site.
