Letter Usage Conventions in Mathematics. There are many implicit understandings in the use of letters that mathematics students may not be aware of. For example in the expression ax+b we implicitly assign the role of the varying unknown quantity to x whereas a and b have more of a sense of specificity. This short note goes through the common roles for the Latin and Greek letters as they occur in the lower division math classes. (Word version). 
Mathematics Pronunciation Guide is the site that will help you pronouonce mathematical terms and mathematician's names. 
Hard Problems is a feature documentary about the extraordinarily gifted students who represented the United States in 2006 at the world's toughest math competition—the International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO). It is the story of six American high school students who competed with 500 others from 90 countries in Ljubljana, Slovenia. The film shows the dedication and perseverance of these remarkably talented students, the rigorous preparation they undertake, their individuality, and the joy they get out of solving challenging problems. Above all, it captures the spirit of math competitions at the highest level.
Although American students on the whole rank well behind many countries in mathematics, American math Olympiad teams regularly finish among the top teams. While aiming to inspire and entertain, Hard Problems provides an insightful and thoughtful look at the process that produces successful teams, and ultimately, great mathematicians of the future. 
MathNerds provides free, discoverybased, mathematical guidance via an international, volunteer network of mathematicians.
MathNerds does not supply answers to homework, take home tests and the like; rather, they provide hints, suggestions, and references to help otheir clients understand and solve their mathematical problems.
The team members are unpaid volunteers whose only compensation for their efforts are the "Thank You" messages from their clients. To become a Mathnerd volunteer read their flyer. 
Perelman and Poincare's Conjecture. Poincare's Conjecture is (was) one of the most prominent open problems in mathematics. It has been proven by Russian mathematician Grigori Perelman. Perelman has been awarded the Fields Medal (mathematics' equivalent of a Nobel prize) for his proof but he has refused to accept the award. There are many interesting angles to this story. A recent New Yorker article (August 28, pages 4457) discusses this story in regards to the politics of mathematicians. There is a one million dollar bounty on Poincare's Conjecture and there is speculation that Perelman may also decline the money. This link is to a summary of the politics involved. 
Euclid's Elements Published in the 3rd century B.C.E., Euclid's Elements stood as the authority on geometry for more than 2000 years. In this Web edition of the classic text, math professor David Joyce of Clark University in Worcester, Massachusetts, furnishes explanatory notes and updates. The pages also feature Java applets so that readers can, say, fiddle with the dimensions of a triangle to convince themselves of Proposition 6 from Book I, which holds that if two angles in a triangle are equal, the sides opposite them are also equal.

Flatland is a movie based on Edwin A. Abbott’s classic novel Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions. Flatland is a world that exists entirely on a two dimensional plane. All different kinds of shapes live, work and play in this world. This is the story of how Arthur Square and his sixsided granddaughter Hex travel to a world that most Flatlanders consider ridiculous and blasphemous  the 3rd dimension. This site leads to the trailer for the movie and information for ordering the DVD. Get your students thinking about what "dimension" means.
