I spent roughly an hour to review this website. Mainly, I visited the Games section and Resources section. There is also a rich amount of links to other websites. There are interactive programs, which explain how mathematics is implemented into games. I was attached to the Maze Generator in the Game section, and stayed in the same page for quite a long time. It is an interactive program that users can input height and width, etc. The quality of the site is fine. It shows consideration towards students who suffer from math phobia. Each subject is effective in order to gain the interest students. Articles on study tips encourage the students who have issues in math. The website is also conventional, so students are able to get help on their homework. The website has a potential for enhancing the educational agenda, because there are many attractive topics in the website. Both students who like or dislike mathematics can enjoy the site. It will help students familiarizing in math. The ease of using the website is good. The subjects are divided and indicated clearly for the visitors? convenience. The website is especially helpful for students who are looking for some specific topics on mathematics for term papers, which interest them.

I explored math.com for about 1 hour. The first thing that I noticed on this website is that it has many topics on it's homepage that we have learned about in my math class. I found through searching through this site that it has information on topics in math such as math anxiety and fractals, two ideas in math that we explored in class. I will find myself using this website more as a learning tool for myself. I also noticed through exploring this website that it has a link for people to "ask an expert" about a question they might have on thier homework or just and everyday math quandry. This website proved to be a gtear educational tool because it is open to the public and provides the general public with information on many different math ideas and concepts. It is a virtual math classroom where you can pick what topics in math you want to learn about. Students and facultly can use math.com as a learning enhancement by using "ask the expert" and exploring such topics as fractals further than a math book might allow. I found this website to be first time user friendly, however, most of the information that can be found on this website is from links that it sends you to. The homepage is more of a general overview of what the site has to offer, you have to do most of the navigating to find what you want. If you are not the type that likes to explore math topics for any length of time math.com is not for you. If you are interested in many different topics in math and wish to explore them further then I would highly recommend using math.com.
