- This is the site for
which is software for understanding finite groups visually.
- Sage is free mathematical
software. It can do algebra too. The easiest way to use it is

even works on mobile devices.
- Pari-GP is less
graphical, but (like Sage) it knows how to work over fields other
- Of course, there is
- Wolfram MathWorld is
more like an online encyclopedia of mathematics.
- Another nice one is PlanetMath.
- The hardest way to make a million dollars: the Clay Institute's Millennium Prize
Problems. (One down, six to go.)
