The goal of the Mathematics Archives is to provide organized Internet access to a wide variety of mathematical resources.
The primary emphasis is on materials which are used in the teaching of mathematics. Currently the Archives is particularly strong in its collection of educational software. Other areas, ranging from laboratory notebooks and problem sets to lecture notes and reports on innovative methods, are growing.
A second strength of the Archives is its extensive collection of links to other sites that are of interest to mathematicians. Resources available through these links include electronic journals, preprint services, grant information, and publishers of mathematical software, texts, and journals.
These educational resources and the organized collection of links combine to make the Mathematics Archives a comprehensive site for mathematics on the Internet.
