I would like to add that first time users should have an easy time navigating
this site.

I spent a full 20 minutes at this site on my first visit. I say first because I
do intend to go back. Dr. Barnbaum has a way with words when it comes to
explaining some of the many ways in which math and physics are intertwined. Her
site also includes a section addressed toward math phobia. As a former math
phobic myself, I really appreciate the insight which she provides. As a college
student, I am finally learning that math is an integral part of our world. I
wish that my teachers had taken the time to explain to me when I was younger the
true importance of math, rather than just teaching me various formulas without
explanation. My eyes are opening to the power of math and it's a wonderful
discovery! This web page has certainly contributed to my understanding. Dr.
Barnbaum includes a list of suggested reading materials, as well as math quotes.
Great site!
