Comment: 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.
Time spent reviewing site: I spent about one hour reviewing the site. However, I do plan to utilize it much more in future assignments.
