For those looking for an Open Educational Resource “search engine” that provides over 3,000 links to information on 1,000 of the most commonly used content terms in elementary and secondary school mathematics in textbook series, check out www.k-12math.info . This site provides not only an in-depth index on CK-12 math materials (mentioned above), but also CNX’s first through 12th grade math materials. Plus links to other OER k-12 math materials.
There is no charge for using the site; it is a prototype for improving the search algorithm needed to locate information quickly in a given field of interest.
