Comment: Larry Green's Applet Page rules! Once again, being lured in by the possibility of punching numbers and interacting, I spent a good 20 minutes browsing through the material. I even found an awesome game called "Exponent Invaders"- like Space Invaders but uses exponent problems instead of aliens. Very fun! Arcade games aside, the quality of content here is very relevant to intermediate algebra/college level math students. From basic math to statistics, there are interactive applets for many example mathematical situations. This material absolutely has the potential to enhance learning across the spectrum for early math students. Using real time applets is an invaluable resource for the understanding of math. Especially when no one is around to help, there are hints available at each section of the equations which help the user to find the correct solutions. Ease of use gets an A+ here. The site has a basic layout with suggested applet links without any distracting nonsense that takes away from the subject matter. Even Exponent Invaders is based on math! I highly recommend Larry Greens Applet Page!
