Comment: As my finals are fast approaching, I thought this site was very useful and informative to write my research paper. It is an award winning site! The Biographies Index helped to find the information that I needed for my biography Ramanujan. The site takes us to mathematics in various cultures and mathematical topics. The site also gives information in alphabetical and chronological order. The birthplace maps is excellent and gives us the accurate name of the city of birth of a ancient mathematicians. Archimedes spiral in Famous curves Index is of great importance and interest. Mathematicians who were born or died on 20th April was very interesting. It was a pleasant surprise to see Indian Mathematicians dated back to 800 B.C. (Baudayana).

Technical Remarks:

Navigation to different sub sites is very easy and accessible to even a lay person like me who does not have much knowledge of computers.
Time spent reviewing site: I spent about 1 hour and 30 minutes on this site.
