I spent about a half and hour browsing the information on this website and I
found it to be extremely useful and interesting. I went to some of the
different topics it had to offer and looked at what some of the pages had to
offer. As a math student, like myself it was a relief to see that there is an
actual website that acknoledges that math mistakes are being made in politics,
the media and in our everyday lives. This website can be a great educational
tool for students becuse students can learn from the math mistakes that are
being made daily in the media and elsewhere. This website is also a useful math
education tool because students might see mistakes that they have made and
recognize them on the website and then learn how to correct the mistake. If
students and teachers used this tool in the classroom it would show that it is
not just math students who make math mistakes but also people in the media who
we can tend to look to for the right answers. This website can enhance teaching
and learning by showing studnets common math mistakes and how to fix them and
by showing teachers that math is not perfect and teaching the students that many
misconceptions in math. I found this website to be visually appealing and easy
to use. As a first time user I had no trouble navigating through the website.
The homepage on the website was clear and it made it easy to decide what
information I wanted to learn more about. This website is user friendly to
first time and return users.
