Content: MathGoodies is a free math help site featuring interactive lessons, worksheets and homework help.
Design: MathGoodies’ design leaves a lot to be desired. The stark white background, coupled with the harsh blues and blacks, give the site an amateur feel. All of the navigation and content appears in boxes, and links routinely lead to new windows that can quickly clutter the computer screen.
Review: Its design notwithstanding, MathGoodies’ content is first-rate. The worksheets and lessons are well thought-out and ready for immediate use in the classroom. The handy math glossary provides definitions for a myriad of math terms, and an articles section offers aggregated general-interest stories about teaching.
Much of the content dates back several years, but because math hasn’t changed a whole lot during that time, all of the material remains relevant and useful.
Bottom Line: If users can get past some design limitations, MathGoodies offers plenty to keep math teachers coming back.
