a. I found out topics and how the topics/concepts/practices are introduced. b. The material accurately presents the concepts since it is a good refreshener to pull back my memories about the Algebra learned before. c. If used appropriately, learning will be enhanced since it covers all the Algebra basics. d. It is not hard to use since once you get familiar with the format of topics and sub-topics, it becomes a handy reference material.

Technical Remarks:

The topics, examples and graphs/figures match effectively.

This is a great and easy to use site for people who are either just starting algebra or those who need a refresher course. This site has topics that range from basic arithmetic to quadratic equations.

Technical Remarks:

The website is well organized like a math text book, so every topic is split into different topics. Also included are graphs and samples, and its very easy to read.
Time spent reviewing site: I spent about twenty minutes on the site looking and skimming over the text.
