have used this site before for research on a mathematics paper. Just for fun I
checked out how diverse this site is and was even more impressed with it. I will
bookmark it for future use. A good tool for instructors and students alike.
Easy to use, and well organized.

pretty much anything the average mathematics student could want to know. I spent
a good twenty minutes just looking around, making sure that everything I could
want to know was there. Like those hard to remember formulae from high school
geometry, for example, because who can remember those when they need them...in
their college math classes. Anyway, this site was very dense, from a materials
standpoint, but never difficult to navigate. I would highly recommend it to
anyone without a textbook handy. It has pretty much everything you could be
looking for.

see, I will have to get back to it with more time, I learn that usually Physicis
use the term sphere to mean the solid ball, but mathemathicians give a total
different meaning, and that is the outer surface of a bubble.

exhaustive catalogue of mathematics concepts, with superior illustrations, that
it was also published in print. An absolutely phenomenal contribution by one
person, comparable in scale to a mathematician's life's work.
