Interactive Mathematics Site Info
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 maintain Interactive Mathematics as an interest. It now attracts over 10,000 unique visitors per day and 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.

Background to math topics
It’s obviously important for the majority of students that they find out where the math comes from and why it was developed. This helps find meaning in what we learn.A poll during Mar 2013 asked readers:
For me, it’s important to know the background (history) of the math topics I learn.
Math homework per week
Over 1/5 of respondents do one hour or less of math homework. For most math courses, this is inadequate.A poll during Jan 2013 asked readers:
The amount of math homework I do per week during semester is:
More than 6 hours
Between 2 and 4 hours
Between 1 and 2 hours
Between 4 and 6 hours
Less than 1 hour
Gadgets and math
It seems like tablets are not yet widely used for math education. I guess that will change over the next few years.A poll during Oct 2012 asked readers:
I mostly learn math using:
Tablet (iPad etc)
Music while doing math?
This poll result weakens the stereotype that students love a lot of noise when doing homework.A poll during Jul 2012 asked readers:
When studying math, I like to listen to:
I asked the same question in Nov 2007 and the result was almost identical. We should be teaching math students how to use math software! We also should be changing what math we teach.A poll during Jun 2012 asked readers:
Do you use math software (like Geogebra, Matlab, Scientific Notebook, Mathematica, Wolfram|Alpha)?
I have never used math software
My teacher and I both use it
I do but my teacher does not
My teacher does but I don’t
Is Math Useful?
It was gratifying to see more than half of those responding felt math is "very useful" for their future job.A poll during Apr 2012 asked readers:
The math you are studying now - how useful is it for your future job?
Don’t know yet
Feelings about Math
It’s sad that 1/4 of the respondents answered with a negative view about math. Hopefully IntMath has helped them to like it some more!A poll during Feb 2012 asked readers:
The best way to describe how I feel about math is:
I enjoy math
It’s OK but I find it hard
I hate math
No strong opinion
Study math in a group?
The recent IntMath Poll asked readers if they usually study for math tests alone or with friends. In Asia it is very common to see students in groups frantically helping each other as tests draw near. But overall, most of you prefer to study alone.A poll during Jan 2012 asked readers:
I mostly study for math tests:
With a group of friends
With one friend
Calculators in math class
The "no calculator" choice could be for 3 reasons - either most students don’t have a calculator, or maybe the math teacher doesn’t approve of calculators, or finally, students use computers instead.A poll during Dec 2011 asked readers:
Which calculator do you use during math lessons?
TI-83, 84 or 89
Favorite Math Activities
This poll asked readers about their favorite math activities. It is surprising (to me) how many chose "algebra". Really?A poll during Oct 2011 asked readers:
What is your favorite math activity?
None of these
Friends on Facebook?
This is a relevant question after some US states introduced a new law that prevented teachers communicating with their students through Facebook (or similar), with one Missouri judge blocking the law in August 2011. It’s interesting that less than half of those who responded have a "Friend" status with their teachers, and 21% don’t even use Facebook.A poll during Sep 2011 asked readers:
Do you "friend" your teachers on Facebook?
One or two
NA - I don’t use Facebook
The answer "none" is surprisingly high.A poll during Aug 2011 asked readers:
How many computers are used in your math classroom?
Most students use one.
Favorite subject in school
It’s probably not surprising that "math" is the most popular subject for visitors to a math site! "Geography" took quite a hit - I wonder if that’s because it is not offered in many schools?A poll during Jun 2011 asked readers:
Which subject do you like most?
What stresses you?
This poll was conducted as students were doing exams before the summer break, so it’s not surprising "exams" was the most stressful activity. Take heart, teachers - you are not the Number One stressor!A poll during Jun 2011 asked readers:
Which of these stresses you the most?
While playing games was popular with most readers, studying and exercising also rated well.A poll during Jun 2010 asked readers:
What are you looking forward to most this summer?
What’s the best time to study Math?
This result is not a big surprise. We all know it is difficult to concentrate after lunch - especially if it’s math!A poll during May 2010 asked readers:
What time of the day do you find most effective for math study?
Morning (6AM to noon)
Evening (6PM to 10PM)
Night (10PM to 1AM)
Afternoon (noon to 6PM)
Why are you here?
The poll in Apr-May 2010 revealed the following about why visitors come to Interactive Mathematics. Of course, there will be overlapping answers (we may need to "do research" in the process of "doing homework questions").A poll during May 2010 asked readers:
Why did you visit IntMath today?
Studying for an exam
Doing homework questions
Who are you?
It’s interesting that 16% of visitors are there not because they have to be, but because they are interested in math for its own sake.A poll during Apr 2010 asked readers:
I visited this site because...
I’m a math student.
I’m a math instructor.
I’m just looking.
I’m retired and I want to keep learning.
Apparently 70% of math students rarely find out why they study mathematics. We need to convince them it’s worth studying, by telling them why!A poll during Mar 2010 asked readers:
I get a good understanding of how math is applied to real world problems:
In most lessons
In some lessons
There a many free graphing programs available, yet this poll shows most students still use paper to draw their graphs.A poll during Feb 2010 asked readers:
Most of the time I draw graphs on:
It's good the majority of readers like history (or find it “OK”). If you have an understanding of the story behind the math you are studying, it helps you to understand it (and apply it).A poll during Nov 2009 asked readers:
My feelings about learning history are:
It's my favorite subject
I hate it
I've never studied it
Weekend math study
This poll was a bit of a surprise. The traffic to IntMath drops off considerably on the weekends, so it is interesting that the highest proportion was "4 or more hours" while "None" was next.A poll during Oct 2009 asked readers:
During weekends, how many hours do you spend doing math homework (or study)?
4 or more hours
Using phones in math class
Most of us have trouble with attention deficit. Mobile phones can be a big distraction.A poll during Oct 2009 asked readers:
How often do you use your mobile phone during math class (SMS or voice)?
Two or 3 times per lesson
About once per lesson
About once per week
Good reading skills are vital for effective learning - including learning math. Any kind of reading helps. For the 22% of you who didn’t read at all, it’s never too late to start!A poll during Aug 2009 asked readers:
This summer, I expect to read about:
One book per month
One book per week
One book per day
Helpful Math Teachers
Math teachers, take note! Students need a lot of examples to help them understand math. I was a bit surprised that diagrams and rapport were rated so low.A poll during Jun 2009 asked readers:
It’s best for me if my math teacher uses:
Plenty of examples
Good explanations of theory
Plenty of diagrams
Good rapport with the class
It is well known that a good sense of number helps when trying to do algebra. Still, 22% of users say they use their calculator for everything.A poll during May 2009 asked readers:
Which best describes you?
I use my calculator but not for everything
I must use calculator - I cannot do anything in my head
I rarely use calculator
Most (normal) people regard spiders, heights and crowded places as their top fears. But readers of Interactive Mathematics regard "math tests" as their biggest concern.A poll during Apr 2009 asked readers:
Which of these do you fear most?
Math Exam Preparation
The number of students who study till very late and those who go to be early was very similar. A surprisingly high number don't do any study the night before and very few like to get up with the birds.A poll during Mar 2009 asked readers:
What do you do on the night before a math exam?
Study till very late
Study then go to bed early
Don't do any study
Go to bed and get up early to study
Math Formula Sheets
I asked this question because in a previous poll many students said that math is difficult because they find learning math formulas a chore.A poll during Feb 2009 asked readers:
Are you allowed to use formula sheets in exams?
Some exams only
Why is math hard?
Remembering formulas and understanding formulas were chosen as the main reasons.A poll during Jan 2009 asked readers:
What aspect of math do you find the most difficult?
Remembering the formulas
Understanding the formulas
Understanding word problems
Notation (signs and Greek symbols)
Why do you have Math Anxiety?
The clear winner was that respondents felt "math is too hard".A poll during Dec 2008 asked readers:
Where does your math anxiety come from?
Math is too hard
I don't believe in myself
Math is not relevant
Other people don't believe I can do math
Doing Math Problems on the Board
The results show that 61% of readers feel some stress when asked to do this.A poll during Nov 2008 asked readers:
How do you feel when your math teacher asks you to go to the board to solve a problem in front of the whole class?
I hate it
How is Your Math Anxiety?
The results show that 80% of readers feel some math anxiety, either moderate or high.A poll during Oct 2008 asked readers:
How do you feel about math right now?
High math anxiety
Moderate math anxiety
No math anxiety
This result shows what happens when the economy is based on un-sustainable practices.A poll during Sep 2008 asked readers:
The following costs have risen a lot in the past year. Which one affects you the most?
It's probably not surprising that visitors to the site are actually doing summer school right now, and so that number was high.A poll during Aug 2008 asked readers:
Do you intend to do any school-based study during the summer break?
I'm going to summer school
Maybe 1 week
Maybe 1 hour
Maybe 1 day

Thank you for this site, wishing you more success. [24 Aug 2012]
David DeMar, New York, United States: i recently discovered your Website and i love it! i am a 52 yr. old attorney involved in the self-study project of learning calculus I & II 'just for fun' using a variety of resources. i look forward to using the site to improve my integration by parts skills.
You may be interested to know that a single unkind, non-encouraging comment by my pre-calc. teacher at my high school ruined math (something i loved and was good at as a 17 yr. old) for me for decades. when i tell people about this part of my math sojourn i hear back similar stories-more frequently from women.- it's a tragedy that continues to repeat itself. all the best, keep up the great work. [20 Aug 2012]

Andrew Mitin, Minneapolis, MN, United States:
It's a great pleasure to read your site. I'm in precalculus and AP Physics B classes of an American high school, and these classes are structured to avoid exposing students to calculus. I thank you for creating a website that empowers me to get to know calculus as I introduce to myself related fields of study. [02 Apr 2012]
Neil Sheldon, United States:
Great explanation of division of complex numbers. I've been to a couple of other places that made it sound like it was extremely difficult. There is a whole lot of technical stuff out there that could use the 'simple' approach.
[24 Mar 2012]
Holly Tuten, PhD, United States:
BRAVO! This site is of inestimable value to math learners worldwide! Great job! [10 Mar 2012]
Matt, Hong Kong:
Your website is fantastic. I am a self-proclaimed (though a bit out of practice) math nut and father of a young son going through middle school algebra and your site is absolutely brilliant! This is a tremendous resource for anyone looking for intuitive ways to understand mathematics. Thank you for the effort, you should be applauded! [10 Mar 2012]
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]
George Thompson, United Kingdom:
Hi, Just want to say what a great resource Intmath is, in-depth but easy to follow. Keep up the good work! Cheers, George [27 Jan 2012]

Cody, Baton Rouge, United States:
IntMath has been really helpful to me. [14 Jan 2012]
Prit Patel, PA, United States:
Intmath had me reminded the beauty of perfectionism. The way you're downloading math into my brain, it is hard to open my eyes. Well done! [02 Jan 2012]
Mohamed Taher, Egypt:
This website is just awesome. Every time I feel I need to sharpen my math skills again, I come here to find what I want. [24 Dec 2011]
Peter Konje, Zambia:

Parth Mody, Mumbai, India:
I would like to thank you for such a fantastic masterpiece you have built. [24 Nov 2011]
Rajesh Kumar, Bangalore, India:
Dear Sir, Your site is really worth full for learners. It is really more than a game for science and math lovers. Congratulation for you and your site. Thank you^9999999999 sir!!!! [13 Nov 2011]
Jason Riches, Boston, MA, United States:
This site has been a lifesaver for me in Calculus 1 for Engineers. You alone have taught me far more than my "prestigious" college professor has taught me all year. Your site is the best resource for math on the web, and you address all topics that other sites are afraid to address. The lessons are the perfect length and very easy to follow. I wish I could take my tuition money back from Northeastern and give it you! [09 Nov 2011]
Your site is awesome and I bookmarked it. Thanks a million for a great site! [07 Nov 2011]
Aron Jun, Germany:
Intmath is the best... it is so student friendly... keep it up. [30 Oct 2011]

I love IntMath.com! I love mathematics. [02 Oct 2011]
Krishnakumar Bethanasamy, Chennai, India:
The site is excellent. I am 47 now. Only now I get a firm grip of basics I missed out in my school and college days. [24 Sep 2011]
Great site. Extremely helpful. It could replace a teacher. Such a well thought out maneuver on your part deserves commendation. [14 Sep 2011]
Hilary, Pennsylvania, United States:
This is a great site. I am brushing up on math to get certified to teach and have not taken a math course since 1980. This is a big help. Your explanations are very clear and user friendly. I will emulate this when I teach!
[31 Jul 2011]
Wow! I have no words to express my feeling for the IntMath.com resource. The steps you follow, terms you use and techniques you apply are all smart and very understandable for any reader who has even a little knowledge about integration. Thank you very much for your effort and enjoy your moral satisfaction for ever! [31 Jul 2011]
this website is very very very useful and informatics .....the way it explains all topics is awesome great ..... thank you very much sir ....and my request is to add some more flash animations .....thank you again :) [21 Jul 2011]
This page is awesome. I have an exam next week and having examples i can practise on (and compare with your working to see where i went wrong) is FANTASTIC. Having the working is a major plus compared to my calculus book which only provides the answer and i can't see where i went wrong in the process. You sir! are a treasure to the human race, thank you so much :) aaron [25 Jun 2011]
Dennis Gott, United Kingdom:
Brilliant. The music frequency pages are just what I was looking for! [19 Jun 2011]
Emily Blackman, United States:
Thank you sooo much for your help in Calculus! I'm taking my exam tomorrow & I feel 100x more confident about passing! (and to think that all it took was a couple hours!) [12 Jun 2011]
Kaltham Alameery, United Arab Emirates:
I don't know what to say. Really it is a wonderful site. I appreciate the efforts Dr.Murray. Thank you very much. [11 Jun 2011]
Alex Selby, United States:
This is the best math website if not the best learning website that I have ever seen. This type of teaching could revolutionize teaching math, no doubt. [10 Jun 2011]
Boyd Miranzi, Ireland:
Thanks for this website, it helped me so much to prepare for my first year final exams in building services. [24 May 2011]
Paramdeep Singh, Delhi, India:
I just want to thank you all from the bottom of my heart for your help in calculus. Your work is benefiting many people around the world. Keep up the good work! [21 May 2011]
This is the best math site I have ever visited. I had little trouble in understanding certain concepts but this site helped me out. [13 May 2011]
Willy, Washington, United States:
Hey, just wanted to say thanks a lot for the website. I was wondering when I would have to pay for the content, and I was surprised to find its free! It is very professional and nicely maintained. You are doing a great service by spreading this free math knowledge. [09 May 2011]
Steve, United States:
Just wanted to tell you intmath is the best website I've come across, next to google. Thank you for everything. [22 Apr 2011]
Andrew Hunt, United States: I've been using your site for quite a while now, and very soon I will be going to a place with no internet for about a week. I was wondering if there was a pdf of the site I could download, so I could take it with me, as when I get back I have a calculus exam, and your site has become completely necessary to my survival in the class.
If not i will just copy and paste it into a word document and take that with me. Just wondering if you have some sort of pre-made document for on the go learning.
also, I should tell you how grateful I am for this site. You teach in a few webpages what authors of textbooks take thousands of pages to 'teach'.
sincerely, andrew [22 Apr 2011]
Rachid Hadjidj, Qatar:
Your web site is wonderful. It is very simple to read, yet very comprehensive. Bravo! [08 Apr 2011]

thank you so much for posting this in the internet..its really awesome.. i dont have a text book.. so this is helping me so much as i practice on these questions you have posted.. May God be with you.. and May he increase your knowledge.. Thank u so much.. [26 Mar 2011]
Zedan Khan, India:
Sir, you are just awsome. i never found a best site for CALCULUS than your website.
with full understanding and approaches. [26 Mar 2011]
Peter Hilton, United Kingdom:
Hi, I just want to say that this entire site is bloody brilliant! Thank you. [26 Mar 2011]
Doug Davis, United States:
I am an electrical engineering student at the age of 39 and this site is VERY user friendly to me. Do you offer your trig and calculus sections in text for future reference? I know this information can be found in me text but that was written by a person who does not know how to teach big dummies like myself. Thank you, Doug. [25 Mar 2011]
Adam Yu, United States: Dear Professor Bourne,
I am currently a freshman planning to major in electrical engineer and I will like thank you for creating such a helpful, interactive and fun site. You were able to take hard subjects such as calculus and explain it in simple and interesting ways. The most helpful section for me was the algebra, trig and calculus 1 and Calc 2 subjects. I am sure that your good deed has help millions of people around the world to love and learn math. I will definitely recommend this site to my friends and classmates. Keep up the good work!

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.

Anthony, Trinidad and Tobago: I am a student from the University of the West Indies, Trinidad and Tobago.
I didn't understand the way my lecturer taught differential equations, and spent many sleepless nights, reading and browsing youTube videos.
I believe that Interactive Mathematics has made it crystal clear, since it has a nice interface, easy to navigate, and the exercises gradually increase in difficulty.
Thanks a lot!!!!!! [25 Apr 2010]
Jasmin, Palm Coast, Florida, United States:
I just used your web site for the first time today. It is great. Good job in putting math in clear and less complicated structure and easy to browse, i will use it again.

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 mathguru.com and spent some time learning my basics I wasn't satisfied...then I found out intmath.com and I don't want to leave now...my 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 intmath.com.
Keep up the good work guys...
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!

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:

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.

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.

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!
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!
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.
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.
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.
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!
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!
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!
Your site is the best learning site ever!!
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.
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.
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!
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.
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!!!!
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!
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!
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.
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!
I love your site... it is the best thing that I have found on the Web...it 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!
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.
You have helped me enormously with calculus. Thank you intmath! This is possibly the most useful maths website I have come across.
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.

Bafana, Johannesburg, South Africa:
You have made me one of the best students in Mathematics, even now I’m able to help my friends. Keep it up!
Wow! This amazing site helped me more than any other math site on the web! I appreciate all your hard work in making this site! Thanks a million!
thanks for this great site u have made.. i am a secondary a-maths student who’s taking o level this year, from ur explanation on this site i have not only learnt how to do qns but also started to understand. i hope this site will remain here for as long as possible to provide help for those intrested or weak in maths :)
The IntMath web site is amazing!! It really puts the things I’m learning in class into perspective!
Wow, this site is wonderful, so professional, and the explanations are so clear, the applications of mathematical concepts to real life are so interesting for the students!! Thanks so much for creating such a great website!!
This is the best math website I have ever seen. Your site offers a lot of knowledge in mathematics. It serves as a compilation of topics from algebra to higher ones. Thanks for the creator/author of this site.
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 Matrices...here 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!
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.
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.
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! ^_^
I am a student studying engineering in the UK, and have found your site very useful when it comes to my maths course.
Your site is very good and the material provided can be easily learnt.
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.
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.
Congratulations on making a BRILLIANT site!! I appreciate your commitment very much. Detailed information is presented in a readable way.
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!
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
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
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:)
Your website was very helpful to me. Thanks for your helping me better understand these concepts!!
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.
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!
Intmath.com is excellent math tutorial.
Awesome explanation of math concepts
Thanks for the good site. It is very educative.
Your new site is awesome. It’s a whole new feel. Attractive and easier to navigate too.
OK, amigo, this is the best math place I have found in Web. It’s easy to understand, clear and fun. I’m not student but I like maths and this is great. It’s a good job. Felicitaciones¡¡¡¡¡
