Although interesting, I was very intimidated by the advanced curves and formulas associated with the links on this site. Additionally, once I reviewed the site further there were indeed links associated to the history of mathematics and Mathematicians’ Anniversary dates. However, once you clicked on these links that information was linked from the Mac Tutor webpage. I think that the creator could have been a bit more authentic by compiling more of their own information. Perhaps there was a time factor, or the site is still a work in progress. I spent only about twenty minutes on the site, as it was way over my math abilities.Comment for Famous Curves (Math) from shanmugasundaram karuppannagounder

I spent about 30 minutes to understand this exercise. There is a lot of useful information in this website. It is a very informative website which is helpful in answering any Math related questions. The website is visually stimulating as well as mentally. The tools are very helpful in assisting in research and everyday Mathematical problems. I spend 2-3 minutes on all the sections from "Astroid" to "Watch of Agnesi." The material shows the curves accurately and educationally. This website is very effective because it allows us to move buttons and show us all the possible curves with their names. The quality of the website is very high and also it is very easy to use and understand. Even the first time users will find it easy and will learn from it.Comment for Famous Curves (Math) from Suzanne Butler

these java applets allow the user to explore the way that curves change as each of the coefficients in the equation change.Comment for Famous Curves (Math) from Asim Pasha

A lot of stimulating information in one spot, its been 15 minutes so far and I am still on here in a different window. Again though the information being presented seems a bit overwhelming, it being since I dont really have a previous experience in it. My buddy is next to me and hes pretty knowledge in this topic so hes making this clearer. I read some other comments users left, some where negatively reflecting this site. My suggestion to get some one to assist you because its really interesting material. By the name you already know its focusing on the topic of curves, more over on what curves are, their importances and typical uses.Comment for Famous Curves (Math) from Justin Vincent

This was kind of neat. The website showed a variety of different shapes and the equation of each shape. This could be useful for teachers in showing what each shape actually looks like and the equation used to get that shape.Technical Remarks:The only usefulness of this website is showing shapes and their equations. There is a interaction by seeing things like the inverse, the evolute and pedal, but it doesn't show how that was formed. So only good thing really is it shows you the shape and the equation.Comment for Famous Curves (Math) from danelle demilly

The Merlot website is a gold mine for any mathematics subject. The website is very informative and helpful for any and all questions about math. The website was very helpful in many projects throughout the course. The Merlot website is visually stimulating as well as mentally. The site is dedicated to students and faculty of higher education facilities. The online tools are helpful in assisting in research and everyday mathematical problems.

I spent 15 minutes playing with the curves on this site, it was neat. I didnt understand what these curves were, though, some ghistory on them woiund have been very helpfu, since none was supplied. The Java feature was especially nice, you could see how the lines interact with eachother in the graph. The only drawback to this site is that I have no idea what these curves are, and while it does provide a formula to find them, I didnt understand it, there just isnt enough explaination.Comment for Famous Curves (Math) from Garrett Pfeiffer

I only spent a few minutes browsing around just to get a feel.The curves represented seemed to be mathematically correct.Student can get a better understanding of graphical mathematics, as appose to numerical.The software was easy to use, understand, and manipulat.Technical Remarks: The hyperlinks were all active to my knowledge, but the pages were pretty dull.Comment for Famous Curves (Math) from Michael Woznicki

I didn't get this program at all. Everything i did was absoulty wrong. I was trying to figure out how to work it, but i just couldn't get it. Other then that I liked the movement of the different shapes. This program was easy to use, but was difficult to figure out, so i suggest a more indept instructions for this program.Comment for Famous Curves (Math) from Adam Varteressian

I just couldn't grasp the concept. I'm not very good at math and that may be why I was struggling with the curves. When I thought I was doing it right was wrong. I had my father take a look to it and he's a math genius so he got it and actually enjoyed the site. I on the other hand didn't really understand the site, but if your good at math like my dad you'd really enjoy a site like this. I spent about an hour all together with being on the site and trying to have my dad explain it to me. I'd only use this in the class room if you have an experienced math group.Technical Remarks: Well if you have advanced math experience this site is good, but I had hard time.
