Welcome to Jazz's
Science and Mathematics Page
This page contains links that I have reviewed and consider useful
and informative for elementary school children. These links have not
been approved by any particular school and I make no warranty regarding
their safety for children, although I have tried to only include sites
that as best I can determine are kid safe.
Please note that I have certainly not performed any exhaustive search of the
Internet for kid safe web sites related to science and mathematics. I'm
sure there are plenty that are not listed here, so let me know if there is one I
My personal opinion regarding elementary school children (Grades K-6) is that they
should use the internet only with adult guidance and supervision.
Comments, feedback and suggested links may be emailed to me at: muondude at yahoo dot com.
You can also visit my personal web page:
(hey, on the Internet no one knows you're a dog!)
Don't be intimidated by Math and Science. It is very interesting and fun.
I like understanding the world around me, and hey I'm only a dog!
