very informative and helpful for any and all questions about math. The website
was very helpful in many projects throughout the course. The Merlot website is
visually stimulating as well as mentally. The site is dedicated to students and
faculty of higher education facilities. The online tools are helpful in
assisting in research and everyday mathematical problems.

understand what these curves were, though, some ghistory on them woiund have
been very helpfu, since none was supplied. The Java feature was especially
nice, you could see how the lines interact with eachother in the graph. The
only drawback to this site is that I have no idea what these curves are, and
while it does provide a formula to find them, I didnt understand it, there just
isnt enough explaination.
Garrett Pfeiffer (Student)
The curves represented seemed to be mathematically correct.
Student can get a better understanding of graphical mathematics, as appose to
The software was easy to use, understand, and manipulat.

trying to figure out how to work it, but i just couldn't get it. Other then
that I liked the movement of the different shapes. This program was easy to
use, but was difficult to figure out, so i suggest a more indept instructions
for this program.

why I was struggling with the curves. When I thought I was doing it right was
wrong. I had my father take a look to it and he's a math genius so he got it and
actually enjoyed the site. I on the other hand didn't really understand the
site, but if your good at math like my dad you'd really enjoy a site like this.
I spent about an hour all together with being on the site and trying to have my
dad explain it to me. I'd only use this in the class room if you have an
experienced math group.
few days spending at least 30 minn each time. I found the curves sight to have
good quality and really stimulated my mind to want to understand it. The
interactives were good and helpful. I would find this tool great for classrooms
due to the interactives made it easier to comprehend. First time users may not
get the whole bennefits of it and may want to have someone with more of a
calculus backround to assist them.

material presents models of each curve accurately and educationally. The
formula and inverse of the each curve was also presented. This site will alter
teaching effectiveness because it allows you to move buttons or numbers to alter
parameter, creating new curves. First time users will find this site easy to
understand. A list of different curves are in alphabetical order and after
clicking a certain curve, further directions for altering the parameters are

playing with or what ever I was suposst to do to the different curves. Although,
I spent most of the time trying to figure out why this curve thing is so
important. Am I just not a math person or should there be some information on
what curves are, some explanation on why we use them and why they are important.
I feel this Famous Math Curve site was incomplete and should be geared not only
for those who know about curves but those who choose to learn.

Curves and I found it to be very interesting and innovative. I feel the educational goal was correct in presenting it to its' users. A student's learning or a faculty's teaching may be
enhanced from this website, however I feel the student may find the software somewhat
challenging being that a higher form of Mathematics is involved.
long, but its been about a half hour since i started.
the quality of content was very good. there was a lot of interesting things on
this site that grabbed my attention.
this is a great web page. its easy to use and its potential for making teaching
and learning easier is high.

materials presented was very helpful for me. The materials were written well for
most people to understand, but knowing a bit of calc. will actually help to
better understand the deeper concept of some materials. In addition, the site is
easy to access, and the interactives were great also.
