This material found in this application has a lot of really unique Java games, that make the site overall more interesting. This could be easily used to enhance teaching in the class room, since its making math more interesting. This site was very easy to use. I also liked the idea that it had games that i could trully understand how math could be used and how interested it could be in an every day use. The games where excellent but a little complicated and it seemed easy to use at first but they where hard to figure out. I like the ideas and the formats that where used to figure out the solutions the problems. I have hard time understanding numbers variables but when it is made fun like this site does it is easier for me to understand math.
Time spent reviewing site: I spent about 30 to 40 minutes trying out to figure out some of the puzzles, it was kind of difficult to figure some out.

This web sit was awsome. I really enjoye the ey opener activity, and by doing
the activity it made me want to learn more. So by doing so I searched this web
sit until there was no more to search, and I enjoyed ever bit of it. It was
very easy to follow, and at the same time the web sit was very educational. The
acitity right in the front of the web page was what got my attention, and that
is one reason why I rated it a 5. Well I really enjoyed this sit.

After reviewing this site for approx. 15 minutes, I came to the conclusion that
this cocept would be easy to understand and quite fun to try if you have the
time. The information that was provided, in my opinion, would enhance a
student's understanding and would be easy to learn because of the quality of
work (problem solving methods) put into to it.
