Math Never Dies
This ThinkQuest problem solving simulation allows any participant to become a sleuth as s/he sets out to save the world from evil villains.The introduction is a classic: "You have infiltrated the secure site of the Hex Agency.

Online Math Applications -
Here's a ThnkQuest Junior program that offers online experiences in appreciating real world Math applications. Decidedly cross curricular, these activities cover music, science, social studies and playing the stock market. The material here is very intensive and is not for the faint of heart. But the design and presentation of the material is first rate and worth the effort for upper elementary and middle school students.
