Theorem of the Day
The links below will bring you (in a new window) a superb collections of sites, blogs, online magazines etc, covering large parts of mathematics. Some subject-specific links are here.
This site draws inspiration from:
Pat Ballew's On This Day in Math
Nathan W. Kahl has posted a list Top 100 Theorems, attributed to Paul and Jack Abad but enhanced with many well-chosen links. The site appears now to exist only as an archive but the idea has been given new life by Freek Wiedijk whose list of formalised theorems I believe to be an important and forward-looking resource. A related effort (on an industrial scale!) is the Archive of Formal Proofs.
Neil Sloane's Online Encylopedia of Integer Sequences is a virtual theorem list. Not all it's >260K entries correspond to proved assertions but mostly there's at least one bona fide theorem involved somewhere! By the way, Quanta Magazine has an excellent interview with Sloane.
Mathematics Compendia & Encyclopediae
Cut-the-knot: Alexander Bogomolny's cornucopia of maths applets and animations.
Mathpages by the admirable but elusive Kevin Brown
Numericana is an Aladdin's cave of answers to mathematical questions, basic and advanced, maintained by Gérard P. Michon. The Numericana Hall of Fame links to some of the best web resources in mathematics (I wrote that before Dr Michon was kind enough to include theoremoftheday.org in it!).
