This is the May 2001 version of Alexander Bogomolny's "Cut The Knot!" column. It discusses the game of Nim and variants. Featured are interactive Java applets and a wealth of links to related web sites.
I browsed through this site for a few minutes, and read the first couple of paragraphs of the webpage. As it was explaining the game, I thought it reminded me of the game Mancala. The website explained the way the game of Nim is played, but I was able t oplay the game. I think if it were more interactive, I may have been able to get the concept a little more. For someone who has a better understanding of math, this page might be a lot more helpful. But, since it's not very hands-on, I dont think it's very helpful for someone like me, who does not understand mathematics very easily.

When I first started to read the material on this link I got bored, and wanted to leave, but I gave it a little bit of time. As I got furter the material started to get better and better, so I only gave this sit a 3, because I feel if it was more exsiting in the beging of the sit, than a lot more people would enjoy it. Other than that it was very educational, and well put together.

After reading and browsing through the site, my first impression was not that bad at all. After briefly reading the instructions of the game I spent about 20 minutes trying it out. Of course not knowing how to beat the computer at its own game, it was a bit difficult for me. The material its self was easy to read, but as I was scrolling down some more I ran into some very complex equations, clueless as to what they mean. Overall as a game it was not that hard, but thought was difinitely a factor. To use this program as a teaching tool is not that impressive, and I do believe it was meant for further advanced mathematical people, but this is easy to use for a first time use.
