It is written in **ENGLISH**.

Here are a few highlights picked by Mathspig, but you have to explore the website yourself.

# SURFER

………………………………………………………………….

**SURFER** is a program that allows you to put in any equation and test the resulting 3D image. There is a brief video explaining how it works and you can download the program here.

# WORKSHEETS

You can download worksheets for every school level, but get ready. Here is a worksheet for 5-7 year olds. But why not? Five year olds can look at sheet music without running away screaming, why not show them ALGEBRA too?
