I found this website expecting it to be about the University, rather than a math website. I realized after browsing over the website that I had used some of the websites information in a pervious math report. This site offers a math library, where you are able to look up anything in math. It also has a special section called "Ask Dr. Math." It shows hundreds of pages of math questions by other people, and you are even given the chance to ask questions yourself. They well verify, give you examples, and help you understand whatever topic in math you need. There is another section for problems and puzzles, where students or teachers can sign up to do them. They also provide problems and puzzles of the week, which I thought was cool. There is a blog formatted page where teachers can communicate with other teachers, as well as a discussion group. They offer many math resources and books too. This website is especially good for students looking to better their math skills, or have questions answered. It's a good idea that teachers are involved with the program as well. I am definitely going to return and use this site for future resources and projects. The site is set up simple, with clear headers, and links to click on. It won't take much time for some one to figure out how to use the site.
