PlanetMath is mostly graduate level and I'm not all there yet, plus it has a few pricks, so all my new math articles are on math.wikia.com
Here's my contribution thus far
De Morgan's laws (http://math.wikia.com/wiki/De_Morgan%27s_laws)
Dijkstra's algorithm (http://math.wikia.com/wiki/Dijkstra%27s_algorithm) (reasonably complete, I just have to change a few things ... it's still way better than my PlanetMath article on the same)
Prim's algorithm (http://math.wikia.com/wiki/Prim%27s_algorithm)
Proof of Prim's algorithm (http://math.wikia.com/wiki/Proof_of_Prim%27s_algorithm)
Uniform cost search (http://math.wikia.com/wiki/Uniform_cost_search)
My interests' applicability to artificial intelligence is very fortunate. I should add something on probability this week. :) Plus I want to get the FordFulkerson algorithm out of the way since learning about network flows is kind of a nightmare.

These look interesting. I got a pretty mediocre pass in my Pure Maths option at uni (I studied it for three years), but I still keep an interest in the subject. The trouble is though that studying mathematical topics can be very demanding and timeconsuming so I tend to limit it quite severely and perhaps look at recreational maths books and topics rather than anything too "heavy."
Here's a forum I belong to and sometimes browse;

Tetration is the next mathematical operation in the series which starts with addition, multiplication and exponentiation. The mathematics concerning how it behaves, though, haven't been worked out to a conclusive result as of yet so it's still an interesting topic.
What I can say though is that the numbers get big very quickly! For example, 3t3 = 3^(3^3)
=3^27 which is about 7.62559748 × 10^12.
