I first browsed through the material for about ten minutes; I then narrowed my search to ancient Babylonian mathematics. Had incredible amounts of information with pictures and graphs. Easy to understand and get around the graphs and pictures were significant to the subject matter, I could spend hours on here getting information about the history of math.This site has so much information: links to encyclopedias, biographies, glossaries, quotations, timelines this is such a great resource for students and teachers to learn.tool to demonstrate mathematics in a way where its fast and much easier to teach. I found this website very user friendly it was organized in such a great way. When I looked up Babylonian mathematics it had lots of subcategories that gave great information and served as a great learning tool.Comment for MacTutor History of Mathematics Archive from Reina Batto

I was quite pleased to find this site, as the history of math was the direction I had planned to take for future assignment in my math G class. There is a wealth of information that will benefit me greatly; whether it be in the way of a particular person that I focused on, or a certain time period. I spent about an hour looking at the website, and not only found information on people of math from past time periods, but calulations, pictures, graphs, cartoon strips, and much more. Although the visual quality of the website looks a little amateur, the content is rich in details, yet there is clarity of understating for someone such as myself who is not math savvy.Comment for MacTutor History of Mathematics Archive from Angela Mullin

As my finals are fast approaching, I thought this site was very useful and informative to write my research paper. It is an award winning site! The Biographies Index helped to find the information that I needed for my biography Ramanujan. The site takes us to mathematics in various cultures and mathematical topics. The site also gives information in alphabetical and chronological order. The birthplace maps is excellent and gives us the accurate name of the city of birth of a ancient mathematicians. Archimedes spiral in Famous curves Index is of great importance and interest.Mathematicians who were born or died on 20th April was very interesting. It was a pleasant surprise to see Indian Mathematicians dated back to 800 B.C. (Baudayana).Technical Remarks:Navigation to different sub sites is very easy and accessible to even a lay person like me who does not have much knowledge of computers.Comment for MacTutor History of Mathematics Archive from Melissa Rodriguez

I've never seen a website that had so much information in one place about math of all topics. He or she can find out about mathematicians as far back in time as possible. I even click on a site that had every women mathematician and their background. And specific dates that you could click on to find out who was born or died on that day. The math topics itself; he or she could get the definition. I just thought this was an amazing site to view. This site, I would definitely tell people about who needs information on any math topic.Technical Remarks:I had no difficulty reviewing the content in this website. It took me through one amazing site each time I click on something different. I thought where does it stop. But then I thought do I want it to stop? No, I loved it. Being a student this would be a source to go to for information the first time around.
