Criteria for a good mathematics site for schools

By Murray Bourne, 05 Sep 2006

I came across an interesting Evaluation Check List for Free Math Web Sites (which no longer exists).

The criterion that caught my eye was:

Advertisements: Are there advertisements on the math web site? Are they age- and content-appropriate? Do the advertisements offer to do students' homework for a fee-(yes, there was a math site which had such an ad)?

I suggested that the author of the page has a look at my Interactive Mathematics and then I said:

I think it passes all of your criteria! Thanks for your time. BTW, I have Google advertising on my site. Right now, on your page, I see ads like "Need help with homework?", "Online math help". The problem is, without checking every ad that appears, we don't know which ones offer paid help for homework.

I do worry about the quality of the companies that advertise on my sites. If you see any that show poor academic integrity, please let me know.

See the 3 Comments below.

HTML: You can use simple tags like <b>, <a href="...">, etc.

To enter math, you can can either:

  1. Use simple calculator-like input in the following format (surround your math in backticks, or qq on tablet or phone):
    `a^2 = sqrt(b^2 + c^2)`
    (See more on ASCIIMath syntax); or
  2. Use simple LaTeX in the following format. Surround your math with \( and \).
    \( \int g dx = \sqrt{\frac{a}{b}} \)
    (This is standard simple LaTeX.)

NOTE: You can mix both types of math entry in your comment.
