There is no escape...believe it or not. Mathematics is everywhere.

Here are a few free software programs:
R - statistical program --> link
SAGE - symbolic math environment --> link
Formulator Tarsia - equation editor & jigsaw activity creator --> link
Green Globs - Not actually free, but two activities. First game is points on a graph and students must use fewest equations to pass through all point. Second is game relating real world actions to graphs. Tracker looks interesting, but I have not tried it. link
Mathtrax - interesting graph tool suggested by a member of my PLN, although I have not had a chance to try it --> link
Note: many other tools at my Delicious account --> link
Some of my currents:
(1) I am exploring the use of MIT's Scratch as programming tool to model math (and TurtleArt as low-end intro to geometry)
(2) Grad work involves creating a collaborative and visual math environment where students discover numeric literacy and problem solving skills.
