Seamus Beall (Student)
this is a straight forward site which uses graphs to demonstrate different math concepts. I think that students who prefer a direct visual example of what they are learning would appreciate this site and I believe it would stand to benefit a teacher who might want to show graphically what small changes in input numbers can do to graphs. I would have really liked to have known about this particular site when i took my intermediate algebra class because it covers so many topics in a fair ammount of depth.
Time spent reviewing site: 1 half hour.

Contains applets which can help students develop an intuition for boxplots and the normal distribution.
