Very useful for people who have difficulties with mathematics, I think it is easier to learn mathematics in this way, great contribution.

The technical requirements for the site impose several limitations on today's computers. Many applets fail to load, or produce an error. This is a shame. One of the Applets that did work, The Simplifying Linear Expressions Game, only served as an object of frustration, trying to hit small geometric shapes in order to collide with another and solve Linear Expressions was more a demonstration of random probabilities than mastery of the entitled topic. This may well have been an effective site 4 years ago (the last comment), but I cannot recommend it today.

Like this practice page for students.  Moving through the exercies takes a little practice, but once students understand how to input answers if flows well.

I feel like this site would be a great site for middle school and high school students to practice math.

Larry Green's Applet Page rules! Once again, being lured in by the possibility of punching numbers and interacting, I spent a good 20 minutes browsing through the material. I even found an awesome game called "Exponent Invaders"- like Space Invaders but uses exponent problems instead of aliens. Very fun! Arcade games aside, the quality of content here is very relevant to intermediate algebra/college level math students. From basic math to statistics, there are interactive applets for many example mathematical situations. This material absolutely has the potential to enhance learning across the spectrum for early math students. Using real time applets is an invaluable resource for the understanding of math. Especially when no one is around to help, there are hints available at each section of the equations which help the user to find the correct solutions. Ease of use gets an A+ here. The site has a basic layout with suggested applet links without any distracting nonsense that takes away from the subject matter. Even Exponent Invaders is based on math! I highly recommend Larry Greens Applet Page!

Es ágil, me parece entretenido para las alumnas.

Technical Remarks:

Cuando uno escribe los resultados no son visibles, si está correcto desparece y pasa la siguiente ejercicio, solo se detiene cuando el ejercicio es incorrecto.

This page has game and practice exercises. For me this is very good, because the students can practice the lessons.

This website offers a lot of interesting applications that can help students from basic math to statistics. It has interactive games and visual aids that can really help students to understand the concept. I played a few games and I had a lot of fun. An excellent site for students to have fun and learn at the same time.

This website is very helpful. It covers a wide range of topics covering basic Math to statistics. The site provides a variety of mathematical concepts that will enhance your knowledge. I personally enjoyed the games and activities, and the visual aid for better comprehension. An Excellent reference for math review.
Time spent reviewing site: I spent about 30 minutes browsing and a couple more minutes going over the games and activities.

Great site. Very clear outline of topics listed on Larry Green's Applet Page. Broad range of levels covering Basic Math to Beginning Algebra, Intermediate College Algebra and Statistics.

Technical Remarks:

You do need to download programs prior to actually participating the the games.

After reviewing this page for about 15 minutes. I was fascinated. This is a link that I would use for help. I think that the quality of this page shows a great detail of help. It has various sorts of links to be used for many different types a math. This would be very helpful to students that were needing help on homework or help in a specific area of math. This is something that I would consider using as a first time using. One because it is easily accessable and two because it will be beneficial to my mathematical skills.

I loved this website! I spent the most time on this website because it had alot to offer any student who wants to learn more or review different areas of math. For example there many types of math from basic math to statistics to all in between (although I didnt see geometry). The site had things like linear programming and calculus and even game templates! This is a great site for someone to explore areas of math. the material was awsome, had alot of examples and the site over all seemed fun!
Time spent reviewing site: I spent about 20-25 minutes or more here....

This particular webpage is VERY useful! I spent about 30 minuties clicking on the different applications that it offers. There's everything on there from basic math to statistics. There are numerous games and math activities that you can play with. The content within the site allows you to really understand math. There are instructions, examples, games, and diagrams that are presented in order to comprehend the lessons the site is teaching. I would use many of the games and examples in a classroom. They are an excellent visual aid. I think using this site as a teaching method is a great idea. It would give students the chance to read and then explore games as examples. It's a good hands on exercise. Faculty's teaching will definitely be enhanced. This site is perfect for lectures and activities in a classroom. The site was very simple and easy to use. However, logging on to MERLOW, and browsing for this particular site, I found somewhat difficult. It was difficult because I had to search for topics, and I wouldn't always necessarily come up with what I was looking for. Other than that, this site is highly recommended by me!
