Like a great interactive online textbook for math, one could easily get lost clicking from link to link. I bookmarked this page for further use. The visuals are great, the content is crisp and the information is easily accessible. This would be a great resource for teachers or for anyone looking for help with a math project.

Although I am new to Merlot, this isn't the first time I've been on mathworld. I 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.

The giant of Mathematics reference tools on the net. It was such an amazingly 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.

The sheer volume of material here is staggering. This site certainly outlines 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 stand-point, 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.

The most outstanding math site I have ever visit, so easy to use an so much to 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.
