Mathematics Professional Associations
American Mathematical Society
The AMS, founded in 1888 to further the interests of mathematical research and scholarship, serves the national and international community through its publications, meetings, advocacy and other programs, which promote mathematical research, its communication and uses, encourage and promote the transmission of mathematical understanding and skills, support mathematical education at all levels, advance the status of the profession of mathematics, encouraging and facilitating full participation of all individuals, foster an awareness and appreciation of mathematics and its connections to other disciplines and everyday life.
International Mathematical Union
IMU is an international non-governmental and non-profit scientific organization, with the purpose of promoting international cooperation in mathematics. The objectives of the International Mathematical Union (IMU) are to promote international cooperation in mathematics; yo support and assist the International Congress of Mathematicians and other international scientific meetings or conferences; and to encourage and support other international mathematical activities considered likely to contribute to the development of mathematical science in any of its aspects, pure, applied, or educational.
American Statistical Assocation
The American Statistical Association is the world’s largest community of statisticians. The ASA supports excellence in the development, application, and dissemination of statistical science through meetings, publications, membership services, education, accreditation, and advocacy. Our members serve in industry, government, and academia in more than 90 countries, advancing research and promoting sound statistical practice to inform public policy and improve human welfare.
Mathematical Association of America
The Mathematical Association of America is the largest professional society that focuses on mathematics accessible at the undergraduate level. Our members include university, college, and high school teachers; graduate and undergraduate students; pure and applied mathematicians; computer scientists; statisticians; and many others in academia, government, business, and industry. We welcome all who are interested in the mathematical sciences.
Free lessons and tutorials on everything from arithmetic to linear algebra.
MIT Open Courseware
Free online college-level mathematics courses from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
Online Resources for Mathematics
Collins Library provides access to many resources formathematics research, but there are also a huge variety of free online web sites available for everything from serious research to satisfying curiosity to making art. Just a small portion are collected here. Send me an email if you have a suggestion of a web site to add to this page!

Mathematician Collaboration Distance
See the collaboration distance between any two published mathematicians (check out the Erdos Number Project for why you might want to know this: http://www.oakland.edu/enp/)
The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences
Most people use the OEIS to get information about a particular number sequence. If you are a new visitor, then you might ask the database if it can recognize your favorite sequence, if you have one, or you might also look at the demonstration pages to see more examples of how to use the OEIS (http://oeis.org/demo1.html).
