The material presented in the following pages are for middle school students, high school students, college students, and all who are interested in mathematics. You will find interactive programs that you can manipulate and a lot of animation that helps you to grasp the meaning of mathematical ideas.
vector, calculus, conic sections, complex numbers, Java applets, trigonometry, middle school math
I spent roughly an hour reviewing this site. This site contained a few items that I would deemed useful for a student. Some of the applets were beneficial. Like the Sin box and Cos box. However i found most of the applets relatively confusing making the useless. I would highly recomend giving a much more indepth description of the applets and thus makeing them clearer and more understandable. I highly do not suggest first time users to go to this site.

1. The sub-link to Origami was intersting to me. My 10 year old, daughter as a special interest in this topic. I have been meaning to buy her an Origami book she has been asking for. I spent a couple of hours trying it out. 2. The quality of content is great. The age and grade groups targeted was a great tool. younger people need mathematic tools and programs that catch the eye. I makes learning fun. When you are relaxed with math , you learn more.
3. If used appropriately , of course the material would be effective in enhancing teaching and learning. While using animals and animation, and simple things you could try with pieces of papers. Create a sense of being able to relate to simpler things in a more comlexed world. To bring things in the world of a middle or high school student. Dealing and seeing things from their perspective, while getting them to advance their chronilogicle thinking.
4. The material would be easy to use for the first time. Especially if you like challenges , while having fun . Seeing problem in a colorful animated point of view. And even if at first it is not easy to you. The interest develpoed would keep you trying until you perfect it. Or at least get it.
