Notes on a course on geometry and measurement for k-8 teachers. 

I wrote a little note explaining the connection between the number of ways of making change and polygons. For more little articles like this, I recommend Tom Davis' math circles page . For example, here is a nice discussion of Euler's theorem which has cutouts at the end. 

Here is the Singapore mathematics curriculum, which is a favorite of professional mathematicians.

Alexander Givental has some interesting links on his page for example,Singapore vs. California math textbooks Sumizdat Home Page .

In addition to having some great offerings, sumizdat is a great joke, see here .
