This is a reference material site for math tables in topics ranging from the basic skills to differential equations. It is a very useful site for all math classes and some college statistics classes. This material can be used as supplementary material for classes such as pre-calculus, college algebra, calculus I & II, introductory linear algebra, and ordinary differential equations (Laplace Transforms & Fourier Series).
Type of Material:
In class and homework.
It works on all browsers including smart phones and does not require any plugins.
Identify Major Learning Goals:
Students can use this site as a reference for the formulas that are required for their math assignments and exams.
Target Student Population:
• Undergraduate mathematics, statistics, and engineering students.
• First year physics students.
Prerequisite Knowledge or Skills:
• This site contains the formulas needed for students to use as a guide in their math assignments.
• This site gives other related links to outside websites that are also helpful as references to the math tables in the site.
• This site gives a Spanish language option for students whose first language is Spanish.
• The site contains most of the useful formulas that students will see in their coursework up to the differential equations.
The site sometimes uses “Pi” and other times uses the Greek letter for “Pi”. It would be better to just use the Greek letter.
Potential Effectiveness as a Teaching Tool
• This material can be used by students to review all basic math formulas needed for their classes.
• Students can ask questions about the topics covered in this site by using “The Math Message Board” section.
• Students can also learn more about some math topics by visiting the links of suggested related websites.
• Students can use the site as a resource when they are allowed a formula sheet on an exam or when they are looking for a formula needed for a homework problem.
• There are no sample assignments or practice quizzes in this site to give students an opportunity to apply what they learned from the given math tables.
• There are no detailed description for some given math tables.
• It would be nice to see a link for each formula given to an external site that derives the formula and explain its applications.
Ease of Use for Both Students and Faculty
• Students can use this site easily so that they only need to click on the topic, and then the formulas related to the topic will appear in tables or figures.
• There is an option to download this site and view it offline.
The square root notation does not have the square root symbol over the entire radicand.
Other Issues and Comments:
We would suggest that the site should add some practice quizzes or online assignments with solutions related to the given math topics because this would be very helpful for the users of this site to learn more and ask questions.
