Over all spent about 1 1/2-2hrs.from basic arithmatic to algebra, worked some
sample problems and had real fun with it.Learned not to be intimidated with
learning math on the computer.
Also I will be using this website for my own homework and recommed it to
friends.

Technical Remarks:

Found this site every easy to understand and use.

This site is a support site for beginners and also for those that are reviewing
algebra. The topics are well laid out and easy to follow. After a section is
accessed, anyone can input the information and see yhe results of the
calculations. I spent considerable time looking at most of the sections and I
was the impressed by the ease of access and abilitiy to see the results. A
student can check his work quite rapdily and easily.

Technical Remarks:

The site is well laid out and easy to follow. All the topics in algebra are not
available now. The authors note that as requests come they will be able
considered seriously. The site does not ofer details of the calcultions. This
may not help a student who is looking for more support. There are other sites
that can support sucha a need.

This site is useful for refreshers in any mathematical procedures. Personally
speaking, it is great to be able to access any sort of problem and simply
plug-in the question at hand.I spent about 25 minutes accessing different
mathematical areas, from the algebra, to graphing and explored even some
calculus inquiries. It appears to be a great "quick fix" for any sort of math
questions. I do not think it is as great of a teaching tool as it is a learning
tool...preferably as an at home tool for homework or tutoring.The usability is
fairly cut and dry, the no-frills approach makes it easy to comprehend.

I found this site to be very helpful and easy to use. I tooled around the site
checking everything out trying to find something I could complain about, but my
efforts were futile. At first I was bitter because I was thinking that I really
could have used this site when I was in high school. It really is a fancy
calculator like the homepage claims. After browsing for a while, my bitterness
subsided because it dawned on me that I could still use the site even now.

Technical Remarks:

The creators of this webpage really planned out what they wanted to accomplish
with this site. It's laid out very well and easy to use. I'm by no means a math
or computer wiz, but I was able to navigate the site easily. I tried the algebra
site and it gives you definitions and examples that are easy to follow. The
neat thing is, you can enter your own problem and it will give you the answer,
and if you are slow like me, it will let you click to see how they came up with
that answer. Everything is in layman's terms. Some of the calculus was difficult
for me, but that's my fault because I'm mathematically challenged. As I stated
earlier, I really could have used this site in high school. There's a section
that lets you plot graphs. You just enter the coordinates and it plots them for
you. It actually shows you what the graph will look like instead of guessing.
This program would be very effective for any student, but especially for someone
like me who gets intimidated and doesn't want to ask "stupid" questions. I even
e-mailed this site to my nephew who is a freshman in high school and he was
very grateful because he found the site to be just as useful as I did.

I reviewed this material by actually using the program. I spent about one hour
browsing and entering equations to be solved. I was very pleased to find this
"shell" for Mathematica here online. I have been told that Mathematica was
powerful, yet not easy for a "liberal arts" math person to use. With this
interface, I found it very easy to use Mathematica and I am sure I will revisit
this site many times.
The interface program seems flawless. My friend, who is an electronic engineer,
used it to show me several concepts in math which I had not previously
understood, but now I do. It is great for teaching!

Technical Remarks:

This program is a worthy enhancement to the Mathematica, and makes it usable for
"the rest of us."

Quick Math appears to be a very usefully sight in referance to algebra,
equations, inequalities, calculus and matricies. I spent about 15 minutes
reading definitions about the above mentioned. I could not log to the links to
get more detail about this site. I kept getting an error "could not connect to
JRun Server." Overall, it appears that this site could be used for future math
problems and questions. I will bookmark this site as a future referance.

WOO...THIS SITE IS SO POWERFUL AND HELPFUL! I SPEND 45 MINUTES TO REVIEWING THIS
SITE. I REALLY LIKE IT, I WILL GO TO USE IT AND I THINK I CAN SOLVE THAT MATH
HOMEWORK PROBLEM WITHOUT ANYONE'S HELP. BECAUSE THIS SITE WILL HELP ME AT
ANYTIME AND ANYWHERE!THE MATERIALS WERE EASY TO FOLLOW AND EASY UNDERSTAND! THIS
SITE WILL REALLY TO HELPFUL WHO'S A MATH STUDENT AND THAT WILL IMPROVE THEIR
LEARNING SKILL.

Technical Remarks:

THIS SITE DID AN EXCELLENT JOB.
SILPLE, CLEAR AND NICE!

Wow - this site was outstanding-just what I needed to help me with my studies.
I know that I will be able to use it and so will my two children. This will
definitely help students with their math homework and will enhance their
learning skills as well.
