Since 1996, I have frequently used information/material from this site, both in
teaching-learning activities and for my own information. I returned this time
to review the site from the Merlot "perspective."

The quality of content is outstanding. I love their "Digital Dozen" and "Lesson
Plans & Activities." I always find wonderful new sites. This time I found
National Library of Virtual Manipulatives for Interactive Mathematics at
http://matti.usu.edu/nlvm/index.html . (The National Library of Virtual
Manipulatives for Interactive Mathematics site is very interactive...much of it
is still under construction, but it really has some valuable resources. The
potential effectiveness for enhancing teaching and learning will be enhanced if
classroom teachers augment their lessons with some of the experiences these
authors have created.) Mathematics education majors will want to be familiar
with this site.

I particularly believe that the Eisenhower site was one of a few sites that
really helped launch mathematics educators toward using the Internet for wise
and appropriate applications for learning mathematics. I am thankful to the
"founders" of this site for the service they started and continue to provide.

Technical Remarks:

Very easy to use use their materials.

This web site is constructed in such a way that the user becomes a participant
in deciding future directions. For example, a poll asks users what resources
they find most important. I wish other web resource developers would learn from this example!

Technical Remarks:

The resources are so extensive that this web site becomes overwhelming. Enter
with a specific goal, and then don't forget what you're doing and why! Then
return on your free time to explore additional topics of interest! Be sure to sign up for the free ENC Focus magazine!
