Comment: This site was very well put together in terms of who Archimedes was, his life
and his passions. I found this site very useful and very easy to understand,
much easier to understand and read then the page on Galileo. Archimedes's
website, was very clear and precise, and was divided out into different
categories such as his fascination with the subject of Geometry, and then his
most significant contributions and accomplishments where mentioned. Having the
page divided out like that gives students a better understanding and a broader
picture on who Archimedes was and what he has done that has made him so famous.
This can be used in any classroom Science or Math and I think students with math
problems and students who have trouble understanding and learning such rough
subjects like math and sciences would gain a better understanding in terms of
people who made a name in math history.
