We demonstrate the use of two popular Web resources in technology-based mathematics and statistics instruction: TED.com and Gapminder.org. We present selected examples and animation of statistical results from TED talks (presentations by mathematicians and scientists) and the Gapminder with particular emphasis on Trendalyzer that converts transforms statistics related to global issues into dynamic and interactive graphics.
