Coolmath.com is a good example of good site dedicated to math.
I liked the way it was created and designed. Site looks really
funny and entertaining. Target group which mainly consists
of children and teenagers determined the choice of web design
and presenting information. The author of the site proves
that even serious things, such as algebra and geometry, may
be funny and exiting to study. In addition everybody interested
in math has an opportunity to expand the knowledge in this
field using coolmath.com. Many flash objects and pictures
present information and math data in interesting way. Usually
math is considered to be a precise science but this site proves
that the study of math may be creative and interesting. Easy
navigation and colorful menu make it attractive even for smallest
visitors. I think the authors of the site made great job creating
such a big project which can be useful for everybody interested
in math. All data and information presented on this website
are accurate and precise. In addition there are a lot of author’s
developments on the field of math, such as funny games, schemes
and pictures which give a lot of creative ideas on this field.
Site is easy to navigate despite it contains a lot of different
information for different users. Among week points of the
website I would name its color theme. In the beginning bright
colors seem attractive and catch visitors’ attention.
Especially they are interesting for small visitors. Unfortunately
after some time eyes get tired of such bright colors and it
becomes difficult to use it. In addition black background
also makes the perception of information somewhat difficult
. Despite these small demerits I still think that coolmath.com
is a good resource on math which can be useful for teachers,
students and their parents.
