About IntMath

IntMath aims to interest and educate people in the joys of mathematics. It does so by providing clear examples, relating things to the "real world" and providing interactive applets that allow the user to explore mathematical concepts.

IntMath started in 1997, and now attracts over 10,000 unique visitors per day, with over 1/2 million page views per month.

Thanks for all your positive feedback (see "Testimonials" at right). I'm glad Interactive Mathematics has been useful for you.


I have taught mathematics in Australian secondary schools (grades 7 to 12), TAFE (Technical and Further Education), and at university level (at Griffith University and in Japan). I've also taught lots of other things, including music, English as a second language, computers and more recently, teachers.

I now run my own e-learning and mathematics training consultancy, Bourne2Learn.

Liz, United States: What a gem your site is. I'm studying for a math exam with hopes of tutoring and teaching. Though I minored in Math in college, it was many years ago and I am extremely rusty. Your clear derivations of formulas are particularly helpful - I only remember formulas if I understand them. I'm working on Trigonometry and am so grateful for your practical applications, many examples and clarity! Many of the test prep books are riddled with errors, but now I can just check quickly to confirm the correct formula/answer. When I pass the exam and begin to earn money (am an artist too) I plan to donate! Terrific!​ [13 Aug 2016]

Shashank, Bangalore, India: Hi, First up, the Partial differentiation page is one the best explanations available on the Internet. I mean Math is a beautiful subject which is in sync with things around us and examples such as the one above drive the point home in such simple language. The kids who have the fortune of learning from you will never hate or be fearful of math. Thank you so very much for explaining the concept.

I am a Math major and am always looking for alternative/better explanations and I am so glad I found this. I don?t just want to be able to solve the problem, I want it to make sense to me intuitively and this did it for me. A lot of professors make it so complex and it almost seems hopelessly abstract. Thanks once again for this explanation. [16 Jun 2015]

Robert, United States: Thank you very much for this outstanding free math resource. My son has a disability and has missed so much school due to his health.

Robert Bywater, Oxford, United Kingdom: I want to thank you for the stream of good and interesting math messages you have sent over the years. Greatly appreciated!! And long may it continue!.

I suspect that your message about math is the same as mine, that I try to get young people to understand that \"there is no subject (you name it) that comes close to math when it come to providing 'ah-ha' experiences\". (The same mathematical structures turn up in so many different contexts).

Math can be perceived to be difficult but you, amongst others, like my countrymen Ian Stewart and Marcus du Sautoy, make a sterling effort in making it accessible.

Math is not more \"difficult\" than poetry, and in many ways is like poetry (in that it condenses ideas). [19 Feb 2012]

Mahesh, Bangalore, India: I am really thankful to this website. I have understood the fourier transform concept very easily on my own. More than all I was worried if you have put registration for sending feedback, which takes additional time. Thank you intmath... [03 Feb 2012]

IntMath fan, India: This is a wonderful website. I am a 12th science student. I have differentiation and integration topics in my syllabus. I am not a marks oriented student.

Whenever I asked my teachers that where do we use integration and differentiation? why do we study differentiation and integration? what is their use? No one could give me satisfactory answer.

Whenever I asked my teacher that why do we use this step and not that in the sum, the common answer I used to get was that answer of the sum comes through this method and I felt mathematics as a mugging up (learn without understanding) subject and lost all my interest from it.

But after visiting your website, I got all my answers. All the topics are explained in detail.

Thank you very much. [13 Aug 2010]

Ryan Roman, Nashville, TN, United States: Your website is very well done. It has helped me out of a bind more than once and today even helped me understand some things about Laplace Transforms.

Fardin Ahmed, New Delhi , India: I am a FAN.I love this site so much that I like to spend more and more time here.

This site is awesome,I have no other words to describe it.

I never liked maths but after I started looking for options on internet I found and spent some time learning my basics I wasn't satisfied...then I found out and I don't want to leave search ends here.

I love the way you guys explain the basics and the tips and tricks for solving the problems is out of the world.

I am just wondering that if maths can be so easy why people try to make it so complicated.When I try and look inside the books I feel like pulling up my hair.

If anybody asks me what made me love maths the answer would simply be

Keep up the good work guys... Rock On... Thanx! [17 Apr 2010]

Hunter McMillan, Raleigh , North Carolina , United States: I am writing a paper for my calculus class, and mine in particular is about vector art. I was struggling because it has to be a math paper, and therefore must have at least one equation, and I was having a lot of trouble getting that kind of information - I knew the basics of how programs like Illustrator work, but I couldn't find anything explaining the math behind it. I finally found this site and subsequently the article on vector art and it helped a lot. Just wanted to say thanks. [17 Apr 2010]

Audra Odeh, Lawrence, Kansas, United States: This website is a fantastic resource, I’m in college and struggling with Calc 2, and this website is as good, if not better than a tutor...the examples are explained so well, and so easy to follow that so far, I have taught myself everything I’ve had trouble with. THANK YOU SO MUCH!! YOUR SAVING MY GRADE!!! [16 Feb 2010]

Jacob Grossbard, Sydney, Australia: Dear Mr. Bourne,

I can only add my vote of thanks for your excellent site. I came back to math and other sciences some years ago after decades of doing other things (life) when I took up astronomy. Loved math as a school student and always found it useful professionally and in all facets of life.

Your web site is an example of the generosity of many who give of their knowledge and time to better others. You are a great educator and the clarity and methodology of your explanations and examples are exceptional.

Again, thank you very much and good luck in your work.

Jacob G.

Michael Spiers, Greenville, South Carolina , United States: This site is great! Whenever I have trouble with an Algebra 2 problem I know where to come. The first time I searched this site, it was easy to use and extremely accurate. Thanks for making my school life easier...or at least at home!:) [14 Dec 2009]

David Arbuckle, Lake Worth , FA, United States: Thank you *so much* for creating and maintaining this site. It is by far the most informative and well-organized math teaching site I have ever found. [13 Dec 2009]

Manivannan, Chennai, India: I completed my graduation 10 years back. Even though I studied reasonably well in Engineering, I never gained the confidence in visualising what I studied, due to lack of knowledge in Mathematics. Afterwards, I completed Masters. Now I am planning to do Ph.D.

But I always had self-doubt in my ability. I started looking for the easy but powerful tutorial on the net. After getting into your site, I quit searching further, and I started gaining confidence by learning daily through your website. Yours is a good work to humanity.

Thanks, Manivannan [12 Dec 2009]

Nabeel S., Miami, Florida, United States: BEST WEBSITE for mathematics learning so far. [11 Dec 2009]

Keith Young, Barnsley, UK: Thanks for providing a brilliantly comprehensive site! It has refreshed my memory and rekindled my love of Mathematics, which had gone into hibernation of late!

Lyzette Luppnow, South Africa: About 3 months ago I was having serious difficulty with Mathematics.

I’m currently re-doing grade 12 through a correspondence programme and the aim is to get university exemption. Unfortunately the textbooks assume that you should just know how to apply principles without explanation. I did my grade 12 in 2000 through a technical college, only to find out that the certificate is not worth the paper it’s written on! You can imagine what a challenge it is to learn mathematics on my own without a teacher or other students’ input.

Thanks to your comprehensive site, I am understanding mathematics for the first time in my life :-) I’m afraid a BIG thank you simply doesn’t explain how grateful I am. I used IntMath extensively & even printed out some of the sections to use as notes. This site is better than all the math teachers that I ever had in school.

Yesterday I received the result for my Algebra assignment which was in the form of a 3.5 hour test. I scored 81% :-) It has boosted my confidence immensely. I'm even quite excited to do the next assignment! After Algebra I have 2 more sections that include Trigonometry, Euclidean Geometry, Analytical Geometry & Calculus. I have briefly browsed at the related sections on this site. Mathematics is no longer a scary monster :-) Thank goodness for intmath!

In May 2010 I write my final exams & I know I can tackle the math paper with confidence. Thank you VERY much!!

Dudley Grant, Wicklow, Ireland: Thank you so much. I’m a physicist and often in our books things are just left out. It usually says: “After some maths, you get this.” I know it is true, but I need to know. Your site provides the best information that I could find no where else. Thank you so much!

Vanessa, South Africa: Wow this website is awesome. My understanding of maths is made so clear here. Thank you.

Rodrigo Diaz, Mexico: This site is truly amazing, after years of struggling i am finally understanding math in a very clear way. Thanks! Sites like this (and people behind them) make the internet a better place. Cheers.

Mehmet Rasim Inceoglu, Darmstadt, Germany: Hi! i just wanted to thank you. It has been 14 years since i graduated from the high school and i had no serious need for higher maths. not even at the university. well i got a chinese major that is why i did not need maths but now i am up to studying software engineering and thanks to this web site and you i feel more confident in maths.

James Cartlin, Oregon, USA: Your website is head and shoulders above any other I’ve seen. It is not only very thorough, but put in such a way that is easy to grasp. I’m actually a mechanical engineer who will be teaching classes at a community college here in the u.s. so I will be refering to this site for ideas on how to relate math concepts and info to students and of course give them the link as well! Masterfully done!

Jackson Bates, Melbourne, Australia: I would die with out this maths site, don’t get rid of it, or i’m probably gonna die!

Shaun Tan, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia: The site is great. My friend told me about this website probably over a year ago and I’ve used it since due to its convenient information. Thanks a lot!

Noemi Capistrano, Hayward, CA, USA: I LOVE this site. I am a 40-something college student-returnee and this site HELPS me a lot in my Calculus class. You were able to explain succinctly yet fully the difference between finding volumes/areas with respect to x and with respect to y. I totally get it now!

Suhela Ekanayake, Sri Lanka: This is the best mathematical web site I ever saw. Thank you very much. Keep it up.

Yosef H., New York, NY, USA: Dear Professor, I cannot thank you enough for this amazing site that you have taken your precious time to create. It is by far the most reliable and legible source of mathematical education that I have found on the internet. Once again, I thank you for your efforts to educate and I wish you the best of luck in continuing your amazing work.

Andre van Niekerk, Wellington, New Zealand: Eureka, I see the light! Thank you. I am 52 yo and have battled most of my life coming to grips with graphs, as in straight line, parabola etc. Without a shadow of a doubt you have explained something to me that no one else has been able to. Tremendous. Thanks again.

Leslie Maloff, Florida, USA: Thanks for making clear the arctangent and tan^-1. The material I was using seemed to assume knowledge. This site is very useful and I wish I’d found it earlier. I would recommend Interactive Mathematics to anyone who needs help in Math.

I was in fact refreshing my Trig and Calculus skills in order to take an exam . It’s been many years since I’ve used anything more than basic trigonomic functions as I have been teaching at the middle school level for a number of years. Happy to say I passed the exam. Again, your site is very useful. Thanks again for a wonderfully clear explanation of math.

Adelaida Quesada, Miami, Florida, USA: I just found your website while developing a college algebra online course. I was amazed by your explanations and tools. I have taken the liberty of listing your website as a resource for those students who need more clarification on some points. I am glad I did not find it sooner; I might have given up trying to explain everything through videos and power points!!! You site is simply awesome!!! I have forwarded your link to some of my colleagues, you have done a wonderful thing!

Sri, Bloomington, Alabama, USA: This site is really nice. The concepts and variety of problems is really superb.

Ezra Yap, Malaysia: I am very much liking your math website for providing useful lessons and explanation. You are the best lecturer. =)

Jason Chan, Sydney, Australia: Hi mate, Like to take the time to give you a big thank you for the time and effort into making this site. Its clear, concise and goes through the material in such a natural, well paced, progressive manner that I’ve effectively learnt laplace transforms in two days! This site and your efforts have basically helped me through engineering mathematics at UNSW!

I’ve passed the site onto some school mates and they’ve basically said the same thing. Thanks heaps!

Deepasenthil, Mumbai, India: Congrats team... I can just say one thing ...Excellent... You guys are makers of mathematicians...continue your good work. Thank you!

Mengis Teame, Manchester, UK: Dear Murray, First I would like to thank you for your outstanding interective maths site, I am an undergraduate maths student and this site is the best of all maths websites I’ve ever searched and I would like to see more of it.

Obviously as i am a university student it doesn’t have loads of topics that i am dealling with but ur website has influenced my future career and i am choosing to become a maths teacher for at least college level and i am sure the way you explain mathematical reason and logic couldn’t have been better. Keep up the good work.

Nadeem Zuhair, Pakistan: Thanks to all your team and i congratulate your team who doing all this for us. I really like this site and learn much more by you people.

Shoaib, Manchester, England: Hi, I am EEE 1st year student. I did foundation year 2 years ago. I was really struggling with revising things a lot especially when i have to look at both my UNI notes and my college books.

But then i found ur website. It’s really fantastic especially revising during exam days that helped me to grip concept fastly.

Irene Grossart, Glasgow, UK: Just found this is so good I forgot to drink my coffee. I will be back!

Danny Von Masoch, WA, USA: Thank you soooooo much, thanks to this calculator I was able to finish my homework and underdstand it. I filled in my problem and I saw the step by step guide and followed it so that once I did it I could remember how to do it for the rest of my problems :)

Carlos Ruiz de Mendoza, Barcelona, Spain: Just wanted to say thank you so mucho for having this website. I am a 1st year telecommunications degree student, and I was starting to lose faith until I discovered this site. Finally I do understand all about Fourier Series.

Note Suwanchote, Seattle, WA, USA: I love your site, absolutely the best I’ve ever seen and it helps me a lot in understanding the concepts.

Vikas: Simply Superb!!!!! Great work!

Ramesh Babu, New Delhi, India: It’s exciting for me to see such a wonderful math learning site.

Ross, Bristol, UK: Thank you for creating this website, it contains the most concise collection of notes I’ve been able to find so far. Very thorough but they are presented in a manner that isn’t daunting, I’d call it "approachable math". Hehe. People deserve to know how useful your website is! Please keep up the good work, you’re helping so many people succeed, you should be very proud of yourself.Thank you so much.

Marg Shapiro, USA: I have found your web-site very interesting and useful. I plan to use it for my math lessons. Thank you!

James Aartsen, Adelaide, SA: I’m going to study particle physics at university and needed revision of high school maths. This is a fantastic resource, clearly explained and well thought through.

Anat Katz, NY, USA: Your website is the greatest thing! Playing with math and experiencing it is the way to learn it. I love your little introductions about applications before you start teaching the concepts and as a teacher I value your presentation and the graphs on the trig functions that show the period of a function are funtastic!

I use the Geometers Sketchpad a lot and I show a lot of these things in class, but it does not show the progress - the progress of generating this function is phenomenal! Thank you for having such a great tool out here!

Alejandro Teutli, Mexico City, Mexico: I am in tercero de preparatoria (10th grade). I just wanted to congratulate you for having one of the top mathematics sites on the Internet. It is especially clear and helpful.

Adam Daniels, Swansea, England: Great website! Helped me with my 1st year business statistics module in university. Thanks!

Marcin Lutynski, Delft, The Netherlands: I just want to let you know that this website is absouletly fantastic!! I did a revision of my math in no time which helped me to solve problems in my research work. As a university teacher I can only say that you did a realy good job!

Heba Ahmed, Illinois, USA: I would just like to say that this website is fenomenal!!! I am a high school student and the day before my final i found myself blessing who ever created it... THANK YOU SO MUCH!

George Walters, South Carolina, USA: I have done all this over 40 years ago and I’m trying to revisit my physics. This is an excellent refresher for me. You’ve made it so easy.

Ebunoluwa Grace, Nigeria: IntMath Newsletter is informative, innovative and highly educational. It’s been great being a part of it. I want to use this medium to say "kudos" to the "brains" behind this work. They are really doing a great job and I would love it if I am constantly informed via my e-mail address or through any other media. Thank you and God blesss you all.

Terry Hines, Virginia, USA: Sir: I really like your IntMath Newsletter and the website. I wish you were around when I was in college. I did pretty well in school but I am sure I would have been an even better student with your material at hand; it’s very well written and easily understood. Again, thanks for what you have provided. It is the best math instruction on the Web.

Scott Biggs, Indiana, USA: Wonderful site. All of the concepts are presented with wonderful clarity. Thank you!

Joaquin, USA: Outstanding website, very usuful for an instructor or student’s parent. Wishing you a lot of success.

Amanda, New Jersey, USA: amazinngggg!!!!! i love it!

Richard, Canada: Wow, I just stumbled across this site and am speachless. I don’t normally feel the need to comment on things but I find this to be an extremely helpfull site and very well put together.

Tony Tanim, Bangladesh: It’s an excellent site for learning the basic rules of math.

Tunde Lawal, USA: I want to thank you for the best math site anywhere. I was brushing up on Probability and Calculus required to take Society of Actuaries exams. I am a baby boomer but still able to grasp the concepts easily. Amazing!

Alan Babbitt, USA: Absolutely outstanding site! I am going back to school after many years in the marketplace and as with many, I need to get back to center with respect to math concepts. The process you have laid out is very deductive and inductive. Consequently, I am finding this relearning process to actually be quite fun in preparation for my placement test. Thank you so much for all of the hard work you have put into this project.

Michelle, USA: What a wonderful site. I wish we had this type of access when I was in math class 25 years ago. Exceptional!

Santhosh, USA: You have created a great website for mathematics. You explain concepts in depth and in a simple manner. I am PhD student. Event though I do modeling and simulation work where I use lot of mathematics, I feel that I do not know the math basic well. When I was searching for the Fourier Analysis, google directed me to your website. I am glad I find your website.

I had been searching for the basic mathematics book. Your material makes great book. If you write a book, please inform me. It is hard to read on computer.

Daniel, Australia: I just wanted to say a huge thank you for the site you’ve created. It’s certainly more of a pleasure to read compared to the annoying mathematical jargon I have put up with in my high school maths textbook, which is usually too convoluted for me to understand.

Linda, USA: I want to keep my mind active and I am thankful for what I have already found on your site. Thanks so much for the inspiration to learn again.

Phillip, USA: I just have to say; thank you so much for making a mathematics website that just helps so much. Everything is very clear and very concise, and helps me with Algebra II. My teacher is rather unusual in my opinion, since her method of teaching is more like "lead by example" instead of showing the concept and then applying it to a problem.

I’m struggling with the class right now, and I need to relearn how to solve over complex numbers and basically go over factoring... but this website is amazing! With a test approaching soon and the semester final in less than a week, this is my saving grace. I’ll just pay moderate attention in class and just come here for my daily dose of math!

Thanks again, and I hope you continue to help others like me!

Skylabel, Australia: What a fantastic site! Better than ANY maths textbook I‘ve ever read. Your method of explanation is comprehensive and accessible, backed up by loads of relevant examples. Especially like the Methods of Integration section. Keep up the good work!

Liban, UK: The site is the most useful maths site I have encountered. Your work is very inspiring and instructive. You help learners use acquired skills to meet mathematical challenges. Exemplary. I will spread the word about IntMath!

Kelly, USA: Your site is the best learning site ever!!

Ntoburi, UK: This site has saved the day! Am a PhD student with no mathematical background (actually did any maths 10 years ago) and sitting for 4 weeks in a statistical inference class was torture until i read through the simple self explanatory maths on this site! Keep it up! The examples are very good.

Wayne, USA: This site is the best thing that has happened in my life.

Haroon, Pakistan: I must commend you on developing and maintaining such an amazing and unique website. I am a Pakistani and did my engineering from Pakistan. I could never really clearly "see" mathematics, due to which my engineering suffered.

Thanks to your website, I got a good, clear overview which has not only enabled me to clarify a lot of things that have bugged me, but also allowed me to appreciate and enjoy my old calculus books that I have started going through again.

Lezann, UK: I stumbled across this site while trying to fathom out some economics equations. I have never seen maths so easily presented and accessible. It’s a joy to use and at last I have some understanding!

Ruth, Ghana: I like your site very much. I am offering Quantitative methods as a course this semester and i found some very useful information at your site. It is very simple and easy to understand and i commend you on that.

Kelly, USA: Your website is presently saving my butt. I earned my first college degree 5 years ago and am going back to school for a second degree. My new pursuit requires that I take a general physics course--after not having a math class in a decade, and after never having Trig at all.

I have been rather lost in class, as I didn’t even remember the rules of exponents, let alone know what the heck a cosine was. However, I am a smart cookie, graduated Summa Cum Laude the first time around, so I knew if I could find a good "tutor" I would catch onto the math. You, sir, are that tutor.

I am particularly appreciating your lesson on vectors.

I just wanted to say thank you for simple, straightforward, and SHORT crash courses.

Justin, USA: Just wanted to say THANK YOU. This site showed me a way that was easier to understand than the way my college prof. presents the concepts to me!!!!

Cristal, Trinidad: This site was GREAT! i was ABOUT to give up on learning differentiation, because all the other sites were SO hard, and i actualy get it now!!! i understand it :) thanx alot!!!

Sephie, UK: Congratulations on creating a beautiful site with a clarity of instruction rarely found elsewhere. Must say I agree with all the testimonials, and would like to add my own.

I’m on a smallish island off Europe home-educating my daughter. We’re pretty isolated here and have to rely on books and the internet to get her through maths (and this year, further maths AS and A2 exams).

As you’ll know, having knowledge about a subject doesn’t automatically make one a good teacher, so to find someone like you who is both gifted and willing to share what he knows on the net provides help for my daughter in a very tangible way.

As we’re poor as church mice it means a great deal, and we will be relying on your site to help my daughter through the next two years. It’s simply the best we’ve encountered in many years of searching.

She hopes to study maths at university. If she succeeds she will be able to escape the poverty trap she was born into.

So I just wanted to let you know that your generosity in creating such a unique site will actually help to change someone’s life.

I also hope that your considerable talents as a teacher are fully recognised in your present occupation.

Miles, New Zealand: Amazing, someone who gets it! Thank you very much, good sir. Your explanation is perfect, as I am a very visual learner... I was brushing up on my math, as I am returning to study next year. So, thank you very much for being a wonderful teacher!

Joshua, England: Just wanted to say your site is excellent. I’ve understood more about differential equations here than I did in an entire semester at university and I now feel like I stand a chance of passing the module and am motivated once more to work. Instead of bogging your explanations down with technical jargon you lay out a clear concise method with thorough answers to all exmamples on a clean and attractive site. Honestly can’t give you enough praise - thank you!

Zeep, USA: Thanks for this site. I was having a ton of trouble with Laplace transforms and it’s tremendously helpful to have examples with explanations. Now I can do my homework without a bottle of aspirin.

Catherine, Virginia, USA: My God... thank you so much. Quite honestly, spending 10 minutes looking at your site, I feel I understand more about algebra than I ever did in my High school math courses. When I took my SAT in 2004, I scored a 640 verbal and a 480 math... quite clearly unbalanced. I just never "got" it. I want to thank you... hopefully I at least won’t feel lost or completely hopeless when presented with a mathematical equation.

Amanda, Austin, TX, USA: Hi, I am a freshman at University of Texas-Austin and I just wanted to let you know that this site is AMAZING. You really broke trig down for me, and I have a final tomorrow, I feel so much more confident! Thank you so much! You have no idea how much you helped! :)

Margaret, Madison, USA: This is the only site that I’ve come across that can give a good understanding of Fourier series! Thank you very, very much. The graphs that show the sequential transformation of the graph of the stepped function is excellent.

Dion, Australia: This site is awesome. I should have stayed at home and learnt from this site rather than going to lectures. Thank you!

Oliver, New Zealand: I was battling for hours to try and teach myself how to do step functions from my textbook, with no success. After reading the explanation on here I learned how to do them within 15 minutes, thanks!

Laura, USA: I love your site... it is the best thing that I have found on the brings the problems and solutions alive and it gets me to shift my paradigm easily...thank you so much, you’re the best! I mean it!

Rechad, Mauritius: You’ve done a great job with the IntMath site. Congratulations and thanks on behalf of all those students, teachers, parents and others who love IntMath! (Btw, I am an IT teacher, but also a "math student" hoping to catch up on my math with your fantastic site. I also encourage my math colleagues to check your site.)

G. Connolly, UK: Working with computers I am keenly aware of the power of maths. I think I have learned more about algebra in a hour on this site than a whole year as a school kid. I cannot understate the importance of explaining EVERYTHING as you go along; it really helps to understand WHY something can be done rather than just accept it because someone tells you to. In short, well done and thanks. Keep up the good work!

Sue, Mashpee, MA, USA: Loving your site! I am using it to help me study for the Massachussetts Teacher’s licensure Math test. The study guide I bought is full of errors. Your website is not full of errors. You website has been helping me remember math from my college days 20 years ago! Incredible job you have done!

Given, Capetown, South Africa: Your website is really helping me. I wish I was one of your students! Continue with the good work that you’re doing. GOD BLESS YOU

Heather, North Carolina, USA: It’s encourging to use a resource that promotes understanding how you arrive at an answer as being as important as the answer itself.

William, UK: You have helped me enormously with calculus. Thank you intmath! This is possibly the most useful maths website I have come across.

Jade, USA: I haven’t had a math class in four years, since high school, and i am having to jump in head first into trig. After finding this site, i not only understand trig, but i am actually excited about going to class and taking my tests, just to see how much this site has actually helped improve my understanding of it! Thank you so much, this site is absolutely wonderful and I WILL tell others about it!

MERLOT, USA: This is a well-designed, mathematically accurate, technologically dependable demonstration/tutorial site that should be useful as a complement to traditional courses in college algebra, pre-calculus, and first-year calculus.

Michael, USA: I love the richness of the information and simplicity it’s presented in! This is exactly what I’ve been looking for. My teacher takes ages to cover a subject like I did it in a day...WOW.

Lawrence, Paris, France: This is an excellent site for learning and teaching mathematics. So far the best I have come across--and i have been searching a long time. I especially like the fact that you make it freely available even for students in developing countries. Keep up the good work, and God Bless You!

Shenton, Canada: Please don’t reduce the image sizes. I’ve just discovered your site and like it very much because everything is big and full of pictures. I choose your site to learn from instead of the other sites that I found on the internet because it easy to read and understand. Thanks for making math fun to learn.

Michael, Ireland: Your mathematics site is absolutely brilliant and so easy to navigate through your "sitemap". Hidden answers are excellent and LiveMath makes the site so dynamic also the aside information is super. It took a lot of effort to produce what you have achieved and I hope you have a good sponsor to compensate you for same so thanks very much for enjoyable maths.

Minty, USA: OMG thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you! I can t thank you enough. hehe! I was stuck on this problem for about 6 days and it was due tomorrow, and i was throwing approximately 5 fits, before i found this website. THANK YOU SOO0o MUCH! YOU JUST SAVED MY LIFE!!!! hehe! ^_^

April, USA: Thank you!!!!! thank you! thank you! thank you for a great site!!!!

Wariner, Cape Town, South Africa: Your site was the best resource I have yet come across for maths. The examples are comprehensive and well explained. I used your site mainly for LaPlace transforms. It really helped so much, I cannot even begin to describe.

Samuel, UK: This gives a much clearer and practical understanding of math

Sanjay, Fiji Islands: This is a very excellent website. I really like the material covered and also LiveMath examples. Wished this was available to me years ago. Congratulations on the sucess of putting it all in a nutshell. Thanks and good luck.

Anmol, UK: Congratulations on making a BRILLIANT site!! I appreciate your commitment very much. Detailed information is presented in a readable way.

Sandipan, India: Your site is great work. I do believe that it will help many people who are pursuing courses in distance learning mode. During my physics days (University of Calcutta) many things were not clear to me. It was due to lack of visualization of some mathematical results. Now I’ve got a clear picture after going through your site, 6 years later. Thanks for giving me some good brain food!

Dioscoro, USA: I find your site excellent! I am teaching math. Thanks a lot and more power.

Clarence, Belize (Central America): I am a student at the university of belize studying math education... i am happy to use your interactive mathematics... great website

Avinash, India: I was looking for examples and problems in Laplace Transformation. This site is amazing. It cleared all my doubts. All the problems have been explained in very good manner. I am indebted to you. The contents are presented much lucid way. This site is a boon. Thank You

Melody, USA: This is one of the most helpful math sites on the web. Thank you so much and keep up the good work!

Georg Schoen, Germany: Thank you so much. Your simple introduction to the formula for the quotient-rule is much, much clearer than my textbook. I liked the helpful admonitions, too.

James Lim, Malaysia: Hi, there’s only one word I can give you: Excellent! You know, it’s hard to get someone like u to teach in a basic way from the basic principle. Enjoy your "why learn..." before you start a lesson on it. Moreover I appreciate your maths proving which I can understand. Continue your great work k:)

Stephanie, USA: Your website was very helpful to me. Thanks for your helping me better understand these concepts!!

Christine, Australia: Thank you for your excellent section on negative numbers. My daughter does distance education math. Your terrific example of "the temperature change over the previous 7 hours" helped her understand multiplication of integers. She’s just one of those kids who says "How can you expect me to do it if I don’t understand it?" Thanks again.

Tom, New Zealand: I appreciate the efforts that you have made to teach maths to other humans over the internet. Using Livemath is pretty cool too - helps a lot to be able to fiddle with stuff. Thanks again for a nice site.

Zander, Australia: This site is superb. It clearly identifies the problems students have with maths and through a step by step guide, outlines the right methods and procedures needed in answering the questions. Thank you Interactive Maths!
