Comment: I spent more than one hour reviewing and using the materials on this website. I used the materials for my classroom activities. I found The History of Mathematics, and especially, the biographies in this site to be fascinating.

Technical Remarks:

The quality of the content of this site accurately presents concepts and models that are educationally significant. There are biographies, timelines, and reports that present the history of math in a way that is easily understood. Students' learning and faculty's teaching will definitely be enhanced by using this website. Students can easily locate information, and faculty can refer students to the website. This website is large, and I am sure that I will continue to spend more time reading it. The website is easy to maneuver.
Time spent reviewing site: Today I spent more than one hour reviewing this website. I am sure that I will spend many more hours this semester reading the biographies and articles. First time users will enjoy using this website. There is so much interesting material.
